REVIEW
Warren S Joseph
The peer review system has become the standard by which scientific articles are refereed. Unfortunately, even from its beginnings in the mid-1800s it has been fraught with difficulties. Potential reviewers are volunteers who may be inundated with requests to review yet these reviews take considerable time and effort. There is little motivation to complete a review causing significant delays in the publication process. There may be biases unintentionally built into the system between reviewers, authors, editors, and journals...

REVIEW
Donald Scot Malay
Authors have a wide range of journals to which they can submit their report for consideration for publication. One key to getting the journal editors to accept a report is that the manuscript is properly organized and in compliance with the journal's Guide for Authors. For this reason, the single most important undertaking that an author can do before submission is read the journal's Guide for Authors and make sure that the report meets the journal's requirements for publication. If the subject matter is interesting and scientifically rigorous, then a well-written manuscript that complies with the journal's requirements will likely cruise through the peer review process and get accepted for publication...

REVIEW
Adam S Landsman
In 1992, I completed a 9-year dual-degree program where I received both my DPM degree and a PhD in Bioengineering. Upon my graduation, it was apparent that "Industry" had an interest in me. Sponsored research and consulting opportunities where readily available, and I had to learn very quickly to sort the scientific from the sham, and the clinically worthwhile from the worthless. Partnering with Industry has provided me with another avenue to advance my profession, while helping to develop new treatment options that can potentially help many more patients then just the ones I see in my office...

#26
REVIEW
Rachel H Albright, Adam E Fleischer
A cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) is a type of health economics model that uses a systematic approach to simplify the complexities that exist in health-care decision-making. A CEA aids in medical decision-making by considering both the costs of a treatment and how effective that treatment is for at least 2 competing strategies. This article reviews major concepts of CEA including results interpretation, key attributes of CEA that make it differ from cost analysis, uncertainty surrounding analysis, and how/why CEA is an important contributor to the medical literature...

REVIEW
Jeremy J Cook, Tyler Rodericks, Emily A Cook
Evidence synthesis is a complex approach to research that can consolidate the current understanding of a particular topic from various sources. A design hierarchy based upon reliability is described in detail. Methodology is described explicitly to provide readers with a foundation for performing and understanding published evidence synthesis. Resources that detail access to the comprehensive database are presented and explained. Special care is taken to discuss appraisal of studies prior to analysis.

REVIEW
Adam E Fleischer, Rachel H Albright
A well-conducted prospective cohort study has the potential to change the way in which surgeons practice. However, not all are equal. In this article, we provide many of the tools needed to critically appraise this powerful study design. We advocate for using a 3-step approach that centers on understanding the study's generalizability, results, and validity. We illustrate how this process is applied into practice regularly at our hospital section's journal club sessions.

REVIEW
Emily Lobos, Alan Catanzariti, Ryan McMillen
Retrospective studies represent an often used research methodology in the podiatric scientific literature, with cohort studies and case series being two of the most prevalent designs. Choosing a retrospective method is often dependent on multiple factors, two of the most important being details of the research question to be explored and the sample size that can be acquired. When analyzing literature, a reader must understand how retrospective studies work to critically examine the methods, results, and discussions to determine if the conclusion is reasonable and might be applied to clinical practice...

#30
REVIEW
Jason Piriano, Thomas S Roukis
Once the mainstay of scientific journals, in the age of evidence-based medicine, case reports and small series are now considered to represent a lower hierarchy in the medical decision-making process. However, case reports and small series represent the culmination of the time-honored traditional medical education teaching method with the descriptive case presentation. Despite being infrequently cited as references, case reports and small series still offer important contributions to patient care. The authors present a review of the strengths and weaknesses of case reports and small series and discuss ways to incorporate this form of literature into structured medical education...

REVIEW
Naohiro Shibuya, Monica R Agarwal, Daniel C Jupiter
Having reasonable outcome measures is essential to unbiased research. For years, provider-measured outcomes have been valued as they are more objective and convenient for investigators. However, with the popularity of patient-centered medical care delivery, patient-reported outcome measures are appropriately becoming more popular in foot and ankle research.

REVIEW
Elizabeth Ansert, Nicole K Cates, Andrew Crisologo, Paul J Kim
Obtaining institutional review board (IRB) approval can be an overwhelming task, especially for new researchers. IRB approval can require many documents and steps. It is important to start the submission early, have patience throughout the process, and determine what can help expedite the process. Research cannot begin without IRB approval, which is necessary when working with human subjects. Ultimately, the researchers and IRB have the same goal of enabling good research with minimal subject risk. The goal of this article is to give an overview of the IRB for practitioners performing research in podiatric medicine and surgery...

REVIEW
Andrew J Meyr, Daniel Jupiter
Statistics is a set of tools used in medical decision-making no different than how a scalpel or a sagittal saw is used in the operating room. No foot and ankle surgeon is born with the inherent ability to perform, understand, and critically interpret them. Instead, it requires training and practice throughout the course of a career in medicine to develop a working proficiency. This article reviews the basic indications and interpretation of common descriptive and comparative statistical tests in the podiatric literature...

REVIEW
Andrew J Meyr
Critical analysis of the medical literature and an evidence-based approach to clinical practice and medical decision-making is of vital importance in contemporary podiatric practice. This article reviews the levels of clinical evidence and their application within this paradigm. This includes determining which level of evidence is most appropriate for a given methodology, as well as an appreciation of inherent limitations within each level of evidence. The article concludes with a discussion on the difference between statistical significance and clinical significance...

REVIEW
Craig E Krcal, David R Collman
Successful outcomes in the surgical treatment of the fractured ankle require methods that respect the soft tissue envelope and establish a stable mortise for functional rehabilitation. Ankle fractures in patients with osteopenia and in diabetic patients with deranged bone remodeling constitute high-risk injuries that may result in catastrophic complications. These patients present unique care challenges and should not be approached in the same manner as their healthy counterparts. We present the principles of treatment in high-risk ankle fractures, operative treatment philosophy illustrating techniques frequently used at our institution, and a review of current literature...

REVIEW
Sandeep Patel, Shontal Behan Dionisopoulos, Monte Jay Schmalhaus
The traditional postoperative management of common foot and ankle procedures has involved a prolonged period of immobilization and nonweight bearing. The concern was loss of correction and fixation failure. However, it has been shown that a prolonged period of nonweight bearing can predispose patients possible deep vein thrombosis, disuse osteopenia, cardiovascular complications, and generalized deconditioning. The authors' institution has published studies reviewing the efficacy of early weight bearing after first metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis, modified Lapidus bunionectomy, and open reduction and internal fixation of ankle fractures...
