Synopsis: Data from 7 randomized controlled trials including 440 patients, published between January 1980 and March 2013, was pooled to comparatively evaluate unipedicular and bipedicular percutaneous vertebroplasty (PKP). The evidence presented in this study revealed no significant differences between the two interventions in terms of VAS, ODI, radiographic outcomes, or complications. However longer operation Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 59 patients with mid to high grade isthmic spondylolisthesis were randomly assigned into 1 of 2 groups to compare the effectiveness of posterior reduction and internal fixation with ball-point slide-type interbody distractors to only posterior reduction and internal fixation. The results of the study indicated that radiographic outcomes were significantly better for those who received posterior reduction and internal fixation with ball-point slide-type interbody distractors, and recovery rate in terms of ODI and VAS for low back pain improved more in the ball-point slide-type group than the control. Recovery rate of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Data from randomized controlled trials was pooled to comparatively evaluate the efficacy of cemented versus uncemented fixation in total hip arthroplasty, in order to determine a superior intervention. The evidence presented Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 65 patients with degenerative lumbar spine disease were randomly assigned into 1 of 2 groups to compare the radiographic outcomes of one-level minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) with unilateral pedicle screw instrumentation to MI-TLIF with bilateral pedicle screw fixation, in patients with degenerative lumbar spine disease. The results of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Data from 26 randomized controlled trials was pooled to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a single dose of intra-articular morphine after arthroscopic knee surgery. The evidence presented in this study demonstrated that morphine after arthroscopic knee surgery resulted in reduced pain, reduced need for supplementary analgesics, and lengthened time before first request for supplementary analgesic. Side effects were Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 4 RCTs and 12 comparative observational studies were included in this meta-analysis that compared posterolateral fusion (PLF) and posterior circumferential fusion (pCF) in the treatment of spondylolisthesis. Results of this meta-analysis demonstrated that when compared to the other treatment option, posterior circumferential fusion (pCF) lead to improved clinical satisfaction, postoperative back pain, and fusion rates following surgery. Complication rates, reoperation Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 78 osteoarthritic and rheumatoid arthritis patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty were randomized to comparatively evaluate the efficacy of conventional instruments (CON), computer navigation (NAV), and patient specific instrument (PSI). The evidence presented in this study indicated that PSI resulted in comparable tourniquet and operation times to those associated with CON. Lower limb alignment Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 4 randomized control trials were included in this meta-analysis to compare plating and intramedullary nailing (IMN) in the treatment of distal tibial fractures. Malunion was significantly Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 58 patients who were scheduled to receive knee replacement surgery were randomly placed into 1 of 2 groups to test the effect of personalized health education on quality of life following knee joint replacement surgery. Patients were placed in either a control group (conventional care and education following surgery) or an experimental group (personalized health education following surgery). The results of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 62 patients who underwent single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with a quadrupled hamstring tendon autograft were randomized in this study to determine the effectiveness of preserving remnants in reducing tibial tunnel enlargement. The results of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 47 osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to evaluate the efficacy of custom-made Trumatch instruments (TMT) against conventional instruments (CON) in achieving bone cuts. The evidence presented in this study demonstrated that the 2 groups performed comparably in terms of operative and tourniquet time. Additionally the TMT Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 76 patients who underwent single-bundle ACL reconstruction by autogenous grafting of semitendinosus and gracilis tendon were evaluated in this study to determine the most effective femoral tunnel preparation method. Patients were prepared Read More »
