After patients are identified with the Orthopaedic Surgical Database, letters will be sent to those patients who meet inclusion/exclusion criteria informing them of the study and that they will be contacted by the research associate in 1-2 weeks. The research associate will telephone the patient to discuss the study and answer any questions they may have. Dr. Goodspeed will also be available to answer any questions. The research associate with obtain verbal consent and proceed by asking questions from the Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment Injury and Arthritis Survey, and the Foot and Ankle Outcomes Questionnaire. The medical student will then perform a chart review to extrapolate information including sex, height, weight, date/time admitted to HMC, injury data, comorbidities, fracture pattern, antibiotic usage, surgical history, wound history, fracture healing, and length of time to return to work. Dr.'s Goodspeed and Reid will conduct a radiographic review independently for each subject, classifying all fractures according to the Orthopaedic Trauma Association classification guide. If a discrepancy in classification is found, then both will discuss together and come to a consensus.
Functional outcomes data will be measured by the Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment Injury and Arthritis Survey and the Foot and Ankle Outcomes Questionnaire. Radiographic Classifications will be determined according to the Orthopaedic Trauma Association's classification guide.
