More well developed orthopaedic prediction models

It seems that appropriate methodology in the development of prediction models is becoming more common in our field. These two recent studies caught my attention: Development of a model to predict the probability of incurring a complication during spine surgery and Prediction of 90-day mortality after total hip arthroplasty. Both studies report calibration performance and […]

Orthopaedic prediction models are getting there!

Purely predictive studies are becoming more common also in the orthopaedics. Unfortunately they have quite often very poor methodology and do not give much insight to actual prediction problems. Hence it was great to read the study by Schaefer et al. in Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research. Their study was titled “What Factors Predict Adverse […]
