Postoperative Aspirin and Ankle Fracture Healing

Study Description

Postoperative Aspirin and Ankle Fracture Healing

This study aims to identify if postoperative aspirin use leads to a delay in fracture healing. NSAIDs have long been avoided in the management of fractures, due to the belief that they may impair fracture healing. As aspirin is frequently prescribed for long-term management of various medical conditions, it is worth understanding if continuing to take aspirin during the process of fracture healing has a clinically significant effect on the rate of fracture healing.
