An update on the PASHION study, which is currently in the process of setting up.

PASHiOn will be the first non-industry funded knee device study run out of SITU, the surgical trials theme leads in OCTRU.

Having run several orthopaedic trials for late stage OA (osteoarthritis), we are keen to explore preventative and possible restorative treatment for earlier stage OA. The trial will assess whether personalised digitally planned High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO), with custom 3D printed patient specific surgical guides and plate, produces a more accurate correction and results in better outcomes compared to standard HTO performed with a “one-size fits all” plate.
