Children’s Radius Acute Fracture Fixation Trial: A multi-centre prospective randomised non-inferiority trial of surgical reduction versus non-surgical casting for displaced distal radius fractures in children.


CRAFFT Study: Summary

The most common part of the body for a child to break is their wrist.

Doctors are not sure whether it is best to:

  1. Treat the broken bone in a plaster cast, allowing the broken bones to heal and grow back into the right position naturally.
  2. Put the bones back in the right position. The child will need a general anaesthetic or sedation to straighten the broken bone, which will then be held in place with a plaster cast and, if necessary, a metal plate or wires.

Parents and children want to know if surgery is really necessary, or whether a plaster cast with natural healing will be as good.



What we did

This is one of a series of studies we have worked on for Oxford Trauma. The solution we implemented for CRAFFT is our Digitrial product which we developed with the University of York, funded by NIHR, and which has been approved by NHS Research Ethics Committees on multiple live trials.

“They really become part of the study team during setup, and are hugely responsive.” Dan Perry

We developed a Patient Information site, Patient Information explainer animation, along with a main, public-facing study website. The CRAFFT study site includes links to to REDCap for participant enrolment, with patients meeting the screening criteria then being directed to the Patient Information site and animation. The trial site also incorporates links to the trial teams study dashboard, as part of a fully digital trial management solution.
