In Germany over 400.000 arthroscopic surgeries are performed per year, which makes it the mostly used operative technique. By using a web-based automated patient’s questionnaires, the objective of the DART is to conduct a broad and long term measurement (assessment) of the postoperative results after arthroscopic surgery.
This data will then be used to gain quality assurance of surgical procedures as well as serving as a basis for further research. Different modules are provided to administer the patient’s data, depending on the operated joint (shoulder, hip, knee).
DART is an initiative of the Society of arthroscopy and joint surgery (AGA), the professional Association of Arthroscopy (BVASK) as well as the Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatic Sports Medicine (GOTS) in cooperation with the German Society of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery (DGOU).
