Abstract

Surgical registries have provided reliable, generalizable, and applicable clinical data that have shaped many fields. Broad collection of defined data can answer clinical questions with greater numbers of patients and more ability to generalize to routine clinical care than randomized trials. National hand surgical registries exist outside the United States. Before the pursuit of a registry, the focus of such an effort must be defined to ensure that registry goals are feasible. This article presents the consensus process conducted by the American Society for Surgery of the Hand's Registry Task Force exploring potential diagnoses for a hand registry.
