The good, the bad and the ugly of bone-anchored prostheses: Guideline to assess true clinical outcomes

Frossard, Laurent A. (2016) The good, the bad and the ugly of bone-anchored prostheses: Guideline to assess true clinical outcomes. In First World Congress on Innovations in Amputation Surgery and Prosthetic Technologies, 12-13 May 2016, Chicago, Ill.


The aim of this study is to share the key elements of an evaluation framework to determine the true clinical outcomes of bone-anchored prostheses. Scientists, clinicians and policy makers are encouraged to implement their own evaluations relying on the proposed framework using a single database to facilitate reflective practice and, eventually, robust prospective studies.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
