Effectiveness of PWB in surgically treated trauma patients with peri- and intra-articular fractures of the lower extremities 95 Conclusion This prospective, comparative, multicenter study shows that PWB in surgically treated trauma patients with peri- and intra-articular fractures of the lower extremities is effective and is associated with a significant reduction in time to full weight bearing and significantly better outcomes in terms of ADL and quality of life compared to the RWB regime, with a similar complication rate. This PWB protocol contests the paradigm of the current RWB guidelines, which have remained unchanged for over 60 years.
