HIP ATTACK Pilot
HIP fracture Accelerated surgical Treatment and Care track (HIP ATTACK) Pilot
To determine the feasibility and resource requirements of accelerated surgery & medical clearance as well as recruitment and follow-up of study participants. The Primary outcome of the pilot study is to evaluate the feasibility of enrolling 60 patients and achieving arrival into the operating room within 6 hours of diagnosis in 80% of patients randomized to accelerated surgery.
Randomized controlled, parallel group, pilot trial
Primary outcome measure: Feasibility. Secondary outcome measures: Composite of mortality, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal pulmonary embolism, nonfatal pneumonia, nonfatal sepsis, nonfatal stroke, and nonfatal life-threatening and major bleeding.
