Study To Prevent Infection Following Surgery To Repair Broken Bones


Seeking men and women whose broken arms or legs will need to be treated with surgery for a study of what treatment practices best prevent infection.


We are collecting data from surgeries to treat broken arms and legs to identify best practices to prevent infection. Participants in this study will receive standard care for their broken limbs. As the study identifies best practices to prevent infection, these will also be incorporated into care.
