Further Funding:

Further grant funding opportunities are being sought to support continued follow up efforts for 909 enrolled patients and substratified analyses of operative vs. non-operative sub-populations, based on patient age, sex, athletic status (e.g. ‘contact’ athletes, overhead athletes, non-athletes), and fracture pattern.
