AOPA’s commitment to O&P research has resulted in an increase of funding to pilot grants, systematic reviews, and other special projects. The protocol for a recently funded systematic review is available to read now. This is an increasingly relevant topic: it presents a systematic review now underway of outcomes of dysvascular partial foot amputation and how these compare to transtibial amputation, by principal researcher Dr. Michael Dillon, PhD, of La Trobe University in Victoria, Australia. Please note that the completed Systematic Review will be available in 2016.
