Projects

Placebo-surgery controlled trials lie at the heart of FICEBO activities with three ongoing projects and a few more in the pipeline. But FICEBO is not only placebo-surgery – we also have a number of other projects aiming to tackle various pressing issues on the care of people with musculoskeletal problems.

FIDELITY

FIDELITY is a randomized, placebo-surgery controlled trial comparing arthroscopic partial meniscectomy with diagnostic arthroscopy, a placebo surgical comparator.

FIMAGE

FIMAGE is a study on the prevalence of abnormal imaging findings of the shoulder and their concordance to symptoms in the general population.

FIMPACT

FIMPACT is a randomized, placebo-surgery controlled trial comparing subacromial decompression surgery against diagnostic arthroscopy, a placebo surgical comparator.

FIRST

FIRST trial is a randomized, multinational trial evaluating the efficacy of surgical treatment in patients diagnosed with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
