Tibial Fractures clinical trials at UCSF

1 research study open to eligible people

A tibial fracture is a break in the shin bone. UCSF is recruiting for a clinical trial comparing rehabilitation outcomes for patients with ankle and tibial plateau fractures who bear weight early versus delayed. The study aims to assess which approach leads to better overall outcomes.

  • Early Weight Bearing on Rehabilitation Outcomes in Patients With Traumatic Ankle and Tibial Plateau Fractures

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The overall objective of this study is to compare outcomes following early versus delayed weight bearing for adult patients operatively treated for an ankle fracture without syndesmotic fixation. Additionally, early weight bearing will be tested in patients with unicondylar plateau fractures that do not involve joint impaction in the context of a pilot study.
