WHAT IS NINJA?
NINJA is a multicentre, pragmatic randomised controlled trial. Patients will be recruited from up to 30 centres across the United Kingdom over a period of 20 months. Participants will be randomised to either have the fingernail replaced or discarded following repair of the nailbed injury.
They will be followed up for 4 months at routine clinic appointments (typically between 7-10 days post operation) and via postal and electronic participant reported questionnaires at 4 months. The trial will run for 3 years.
