Studies

The Scientific Committee is currently working on an EPOS-wide study to determine provider characteristics, care pathways, and methods of diagnosis and treatment in patients with osteofibrous dysplasia. Another EPOS-wide study examines predictors of late recurrence of clubfoot in children following Ponseti treatment. This study is currently recruiting new sites.

Another study relates to the condition osteofibrous dysplasia in children. We will conduct a survey of all members of EPOS to determine the opinions and attitudes of surgeons about the diagnosis and management of this condition in order to inform our research agenda.
Studies that are currently in preparation:
1) EMG studies of muscle function in children with clubfoot
2) A survey about the MAGEC spine rodding system
3) EPOS recommended patient reported outcome measures
The Scientific Committee encourages all members of EPOS and allied societies to submit new study proposals or new ideas for studies that can be performed within EPOS. In particular, the Committee is keen to support research of clinically important questions that use a multi-national, collaborative approach.
