Synopsis: 50 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) were randomized to undergo THA with either a metal-on-polyethylene (MPE) bearing with a titanium shell or a metal-on-metal (MoM) bearing with an all-cobalt chrome shell. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of these two types of modular neck systems on serum ion levels. Results at 2 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 1090 Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA) members were invited to participate in this study which looked at different email designs of surgical surveys and their influence on rate of response. The study observed that highlighting through bolding and capitalization, and leveraging surgeons as an exclusive target group of the survey significantly improved the rate of response. In contrast, the Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 45 osteoporotic compression fracture patients were randomized to be treated with either percutaneous transpedicular vertebroplasty or conservative treatment, both combined with medical line prevention of osteoporosis. Two year results aimed to compare both methods in terms of pain, physical activities, functional outcome, and mental status. The results, measured Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 62 patients undergoing primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) were randomized to receive treatment using a cementless acetabular cup with either a 61% high porosity asymmetric titanium porous surface (StikTite) or a 45% low porosity sintered bead porous surface (Roughcoat) to determine the effects they have on clinical and radiological outcomes. Results at 2 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 39 post-fixation fracture patients were randomized to determine the cost effectiveness and safety of foregoing postoperative x-ray screening up to 6 weeks following surgery. This protocol was compared to a group who received screening immediately postoperative and at 2 weeks after surgery. The results demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 74 medical students performed a simulated basic diagnostic knee arthroscopy and then were randomized to receive one of the following interventions: a novice-video intervention, an expert-video intervention or no intervention at all. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of these interventions on students' performance post-intervention and following a retention period. Results, assessed directly Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 330 patients were randomized to undergo anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with a patellar tendon (PT), quadruple-stranded hamstring (HT), or double-bundle hamstring (DB) autograft, to compare incidence of post-operative adverse effects between surgical methods. Following assessments over a 2 year period, results indicated that 13% of patients required repeat surgery. The percentages of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 42 patients undergoing cruciate-retaining cemented total knee replacement were randomized to compare the feasibility, patient satisfaction and functional outcomes between the OtisMed system of custom cutting blocks 3D reconstruction and standard computer navigation. 6 month results, measured by EQ-5D scores, Oxford Knee scores, satisfaction, pain, and range of motion, indicated no differences between the two procedures. The custom cutting system resulted in fewer ligament releases. On-site inter-departmental collaboration, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 197 patients undergoing an orthopaedic surgery were randomized to wound closure with suture or staples to determine the effect of each on postoperative wound complications. Results after 6 weeks indicated that there was no statistical difference between the two wound closure methods on occurrence of wound complications. While less time Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients with subacromial impingement syndrome were randomized to determine the effect of adjuvant kinesiology taping with exercise compared to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with exercise. Both of these treatments were also compared to a group who received exercise alone. The results after Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 204 patients were randomly allocated to undergo either extramedullary device (DHS) or intramedullary (IM) nail fixation for an intertrochanteric fracture of the femur. 12 month results aimed to compare the radiological and clinical outcomes of both procedures. At the end of the study period, no significant differences were seen in lower extremity measure (LEM), functional independence measure (FIM), the Timed Up & Go (TUG), 2 minute timed walk, Trendelenburg test or tip-apex distance (TAD). IM nail had Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 330 anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction patients were randomized to undergo the procedure either with patellar tendon (PT), quadruple hamstring (HT), or double-bundle hamstring tendon (DB) autografts. The 2 year study showed similar patient-reported disease-specific quality of life and International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) grading. PT group, however, Read More »
