Research methodology, clinical trials, registry studies and epidemiological studies.

Development and validation of clinical measurements and patient reported out come measures.

Main research areas

Kristoffer Barfods research is centred around Sports traumatology. The main focus areas are 1) Achilles tendon rupture and tendinopathy, 2) Patella instability, 3) Rotator cuff tears and subacromial impingement syndrome

Current research

Achilles tendon rupture:

  • RCT. Early controlled mobilization compared with immobilization.
  • Ultrasonographic guided treatment of acute Achilles tendon rupture.
  • The risk of development of DVT after acute Achilles tendon rupture.
  • The Danish Achilles Tendon Rupture Database.
  • Reliability of Barfods Ultrasound measurement and Amlangs US classification.
  • Validation of the ATLM and the ATRA.
  • RCT: Achilles tendon elongation and gait patterns after rupture

Patella instability

  • Incidence of patellar dislocations.
  • Result after MPFL reconstruction

Knee OA

  • High Tibial Opening Wedge Osteotomy using the iBalance system - a retrospective cohort study.
  • Treatment of Osteoarthritis with Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells - a Pilot Study.


  • Individualized treatment of shoulder impingement syndrome
  • RCT. The effect of arthroscopic sub-acromial decompression compared with sham surgery.
