Current Projects

Transcutaneous Oxygen as a Predictor of Wound Healing Complications in Preoperatively Radiated Soft Tissue Sarcoma.

PI: Lukas Nystrom

Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, OREF/MSTS Clinical Research Grant in Orthopaedic Oncology

 

This project is a 2 year prospective, multi-institutional effort evaluating the potential of non-invasive transcutaneous oximetry to identify patients at risk of developing wound complications following surgery for preoperatively radiated soft tissue sarcoma. 

 

Local Bisphosphonate Effect on Recurrence Rate in Extremity Giant Cell Tumor of Bone: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Tria

PI: David Greenberg

 

This study is a prospective, randomized, controlled multicenter trial to investigate whether the local delivery of BP as a surgical adjuvant can decrease the local recurrence rate of GCT of bone. The specific aims are to determine if BP-loaded bone cement decreases LR and provides superior results in secondary outcomes in comparison to conventional methods.
