Please see a number of independent research surveys below. The researchers involved would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete these by any deadline dates given.

Leg length discrepancy following total hip replacement survery
An orthopaedic fellow at Broadgreen Hospital in Liverpool is undertaking a survey on this topic, aiming to canvas orthopaedic surgeons’ views as to where the threshold lies between an acceptable and unacceptable difference in leg length.  This survey is looking at whether this threshold is affected by choice of implant, preoperative templating and intraoperative methods of checking leg lengths.

Developing an acute knee injury assessment tool: Cambridge Knee Injury Assessment Tool
The Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics at the University of Cambridge is undertaking a study to identify the priorities in diagnosing, treating, and risk-stratifying knee injuries, as perceived by healthcare professionals in acute settings. This study is seeking the expert opinion of key stakeholders in this area, including physiotherapists, emergency nurse practitioners, general practitioners, sports medicine physicians, radiologists, and orthopedic specialists. This research will be used to guide the development of a risk stratification tool that aims to ensure a more focused and informed approach to the diagnosis of acute knee injuries. Subsequently, this will help guide management pathways to promote time and cost efficiency for both patients and healthcare providers.
