Journal Article
Dias, J., Brealey, S., Fairhurst, C., Amirfeyz, R., Bhowal, B., Blewitt, N., …Warwick, D. (2020). Surgery versus cast immobilisation for adults with a bicortical fracture of the scaphoid waist (SWIFFT): a pragmatic, multicentre, open-label, randomised superiority trial. Lancet, 396(10248), 390-401. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736%2820%2930931-4

Background Scaphoid fractures account for 90% of carpal fractures and occur predominantly in young men. The use of immediate surgical fixation to manage this type of fracture has increased, despite insufficient evidence of improved outcomes over non...

Trials, 20, https://doi.org/10.1186/s13063-019-3344-1

Background Data from a feasibility study suggest that the use of an inelastic, short-stretch compression bandage following total knee arthroplasty is a safe technique that may improve patient-reported health outcomes, and that it is feasible to recr...
