Surgery or Cast for Injuries of the EpicoNdyle in Children’s Elbows: A multi-centre prospective randomised superiority trial of operative fixation versus non-operative treatment for medial epicondyle fractures of the humerus.

SCIENCE Surgery or Cast for Injuries of the EpicoNdyle in Children’s Elbows. A multi-centre prospective randomised superiority trial of operative fixation versus non-operative treatment for medial epicondyle fractures of the humerus.

We plan on recruiting a minimum of 334 patients aged between 7 and 17 years.

The aim of the trial is to determine the clinical and cost-effectiveness of operative fixation versus non-operative treatment for medial epicondyle fractures of the elbow in children.

The primary objective is to quantify and draw inferences on observed differences in function using the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Extremity Limb Score for Children between operative fixation versus non-operative treatment at 1 year post-randomisation for fractures of the medial epicondyle in children

Study start date 01/7/2018 and end date 30/06/2022.
