Synopsis: 138 women (100 at final follow-up) who underwent short proximal femoral nailing for a low-energy intertrochanteric fracture were randomized to receive either risendronate (75 mg twice monthly) or a placebo equivalent. The purpose of this study was to examine whether quantitative ultrasound was able to detect the effects of risendronate on bone strength, as confirmed by the incidence of re-fracture in these women. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 54 patients were randomly allocated to receive a direct anterior or mini-incision posterior approach to total hip arthroplasty (THA), to determine if there were differences in time to ambulation between the two techniques. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 23 studies (randomized controlled trials, prospective cohort studies, and retrospective case series) were included in this literature review comparing surgical approaches and fixation methods in operative management of distal biceps tendon ruptures. The results indicated that the overall complication rate among all studies was 24.7%, with no significant difference whether a single or two incision approach was used. The conference abstract Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 128 patients were randomly allocated to undergo a medial parapatellar arthrotomy or quadriceps-sparing approach to total knee arthroplasty (TKA), to determine if one technique provided superior early functional outcomes. To accurately compare results, both approaches used minimally invasive surgical principles. Short-term results revealed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 389 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to one of three groups: an uncemented highly-porous-metal tibial component group, a cemented highly-porous tibial component group, or a cemented traditional tibial component group. The purpose of this study was to compare the reliability and durability between treatment groups. Upon analysis, highly-porous-metal Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty were randomized to tibial resection using either an extramedullary device or a portable, accelerometer-based navigation device. The purpose was to evaluate accuracy of tibial component alignment. Results revealed that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients scheduled to undergo primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to undergo the procedure using either a new pinless computer navigation system or a conventional technique. The purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy of this new system for implant alignment. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 300 patients with radial head fractures were randomized to receive a mobilization protocol with either early or delayed active elbow rotation. The purpose was to determine whether the difference in timing has an effect on clinical outcome after 2 years. Result indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 95 patients undergoing foot and ankle surgery were randomized to receive either 4% chlorhexidine gluconate followed by 70% isopropyl alcohol while preparing the surgical site, or the same two solutions applied in a reverse order. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the order of application of these two solutions has an effect on bacterial cultures, measured at four separate time points in the perioperative period. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty were randomized to receive intravenous or topical tranexamic acid to compare the efficacy of preparations on postoperative blood loss and transfusion rates. Results indicated blood Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 200 patients suffering from mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis were randomly allocated to receive 3 hyaluronic acid (HA) injections or 3 placebo injections to determine the ability of HA to improve knee pain and function. A Visual Analog Scale (VAS) for pain, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), knee range of motion, treatment satisfaction, and adverse events were used to determine clinical and functional outcomes. Upon analysis, it Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 270 patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty (TJA) were randomly allocated to receive an occlusive, antimicrobial surgical dressing or a standard surgical dressing after wound closure. The purpose of the study was to determine if antimicrobial surgical dressing promoted uneventful wound healing. Upon analysis, treatment Read More »
