Biomechanical Assessment of Level Gait in Patient's Status Post Bladder Exstrophy (Gait)
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00863070|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : March 17, 2009
Last Update Posted : March 20, 2017
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients who have undergone exstrophy closure may be at risk for long-term orthopedic issues manifest by gait abnormalities. This study is a descriptive analysis of the study cohort's gait patterns and pelvic structure.
Specific Aim 1: to determine whether patients with classic bladder exstrophy who underwent closure demonstrate gait abnormalities.
Hypothesis 1: Patients undergoing closure of bladder exstrophy (with or without pelvic osteotomy) demonstrate gait abnormalities compared with a reference population.
Hypothesis 2: Patients undergoing closure of bladder exstrophy (with or without pelvic osteotomy) will have below normal functional survey scores.
