A new study called TrAFFix (Trial of Acute Femoral Fracture Fixation) has just opened at  the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. TrAFFix will compare two different methods of fixing breaks of the thigh bone (femur), and will be rolled out across 6 hospitals in England over the next few months.

Participants aged 50 or over, who have a break in the lower part of their thigh bone (femur), may be eligible to take part. The study will help the planning of a future large trial by measuring recruitment, the completion rate of questionnaires, and assessing participant and staff impressions of the research. The future trial will compare differences in quality of life outcome when patients receive one of two common types of fixation.

TrAFFix is funded by the NIHR Health Technology Assessment Programme (Ref: 15/59/22).
