Hard-Soled Shoe Not Inferior to Short Leg Cast for Avulsion Fractures


 


Published results showed weight-bearing as tolerated in a hard-soled shoe was noninferior to use of a short leg cast for treatment of fifth metatarsal base avulsion fractures. In their study, Young Rak Choi, MD, and colleagues randomly assigned 96 patients with a fifth metatarsal base avulsion fracture to receive treatment with either a hard-soled shoe (n=46) or a short leg cast (n=50). 


 


Researchers considered the mean difference on the 100-mm VAS between the groups at 6 months after fracture as the primary outcome measure. Time to return to pre-injury activity and patient-reported satisfaction were the secondary outcome measures. Researchers performed the analysis on an intention-to-treat basis, as well as a per-protocol basis.
