The researchers analyzed 40 patients who had operative treatment for ankle fractures and were randomized to either an enhanced information group that received handouts with information from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons covering postoperative ankle fracture treatment and a pamphlet outlining standard physiotherapy at the institution or a standard group that did not receive the handouts. According to their study abstract, the investigators conducted clinical and radiographic follow-up of the patients for 3 months. The patients completed the Olerud-Molander Questionnaire and answered two additional questions regarding their satisfaction.
