ACFAS seeks investigative sites for study on subtalar arthroereisis

The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) is seeking members to serve as investigators as part of a research initiative on subtalar joint arthroereisis. The study’s principal investigator, Adam E. Fleischer, DPM, MPH, FACFAS, and colleagues are recruiting sites for the retrospective study, which will look at predictive variables associated with successful and unsuccessful outcomes of subtalar joint arthroereisis in adults and children. Study sites and participants will be compensated.

The ACFAS will select sites based on: commitment to a one-year contractual agreement; availability of a primary site investigator who is an ACFAS member in good standing; patient availability, including volume (minimum, 40 patients) and a patient mix of children and adults treated with subtalar arthroereisis for symptomatic non-neuromuscular flatfoot during the past 10 years; past participation in multicenter studies; and professional reputation for scholarly activity.
