Approximately 200 of patients of 60 years or older who present a mandibular fracture will be enrolled in this registry. All patients will be treated and followed up according to the local standard (routine) of care at around 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months after treatment.
Full Title of Study: “International, Multicenter, Prospective Registry to Collect Data in Patients 60 Years and Older Suffering From Mandibular Fractures”
- Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
- Study Design
- Time Perspective: Prospective
- Study Primary Completion Date: January 2023
Patients of 60 years or older who present a mandibular fracture will be enrolled in this registry. All patients will be treated (surgical or non-surgical) and followed up according to the local standard (routine) of care at around 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months after treatment. Data collection will include patient and fracture details, treatment details, functional, clinical and patient-reported outcomes and anticipated or procedure- and implant-related adverse events (i.e. complications). Radiographs and/or other images (e.g. CT scan) taken as per standard of care will be collected within the registry. Primary objectives are to obtain epidemiological data and describe the most common mandibular fracture patterns in older patients, to explore the relationship(s) between the treatment of mandibular fractures and its outcome in older patients, to identify risk factors and initiating factors of elderly related to mandible fracture events and to describe concomitant fractures associated with mandibular fractures in older patients.
- Procedure: Surgery
- Surgical fracture treatment
- Other: Non-Surgical fracture treatment
- Non-Surgical fracture treatment
Arms, Groups and Cohorts
- Mandibular Fracture
- Elderly patients of > 60 years who present a mandibular fracture Surgery or Non-surgical fracture treatment will be applied according to routine clinical practice
Clinical Trial Outcome Measures
- Patient-reported outcome
- Time Frame: Baseline (preinjury)/ 2 weeks / 6 weeks / 3 months / 6 months
- Change in Geriatric/general Oral Self Assessment Index (GOHAI) over the follow up period: Self-reported measurement to describe three hypothetical dimensions 1) physical function, 2) psychosocial function and 3) pain and/or discomfort. It consisted of 12 items evaluated using a 5-point Likert from “never” to “always” in which higher scores indicated better outcomes.
