Synopsis: 215 postmenopausal women with low spine or total hip bone mineral density (BMD) were randomized to treatment with either denosumab, alendronate, or placebo for a period of 12 months. Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) and densitometry (DXA), in addition to a novel trabecular bone score (TBS) were evaluated to determine if a differences exists between the information provided by these three measurement tools. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: In a previous randomized controlled trial, 542 patients (65-95 years) with osteoporosis were randomized to receive an injection of 56.5 mg teriparatide or a placebo injection, once weekly, to determine the effect of this treatment approach on vertebral fracture risk. The purpose of the current analysis was to determine whether the effects remain in a variety of subgroups. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 62 patients with primitive bilateral knee osteoarthritis (stage I, II, or III) were randomized to undergo usual care with or without the addition of kinetotherapy. The purpose of this study was to determine whether this combined treatment yielded significant improvements in pain and functional outcomes. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 92 patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were randomized to receive methotrexate with or without rituximab therapy to assess the impact of rituximab treatment on bone mineral density (BMD) at the femoral neck. BMD and T-scores significantly increased after 3 years in patients who received methotrexate and rituximab therapy, and maintained positive trends at the 4-year follow-up. No significant changes Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 58 patients who underwent recent hip arthroplasty were randomized to postoperative rehabilitation involving either hydrotherapy or conventional exercise for 12 days. This study aimed to compare functional outcome between the two rehabilitation modalities following discharge from the program and at 6-month follow-up. Results indicated improvements Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 postmenopausal women at least one osteoporotic vertebral fracture were randomized to receive dynamic electroneurostimulation (DENS) or placebo treatment to determine the effect of DENS on back pain and quality of life. Upon analysis, 10 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 30 patients with hip osteoarthritis were randomized to intervention through either hydrotherapy or conventional physiotherapy. The purpose was to determine how the treatments compared with respect to pain, function, and health-related quality of life. The results indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 123 patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis were randomized to receive one of three treatments: nonoperative management, arthroscopic debridement alone, or arthroscopic debridement with viscosupplementation applied 3 weeks postoperatively. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcome, functional outcome, and patient satisfaction between the three treatments. Results at 1 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 98 patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were randomized to receive methotrexate with or without rituximab therapy to determine effect of rituximab on quality of life in this patient population. The Euro-QOL 5 dimension (EQ-5D) and Health Assessment Questionnaire for Rheumatoid Arthritis (HAQ) were assessed over 24 months. Upon analysis, combined Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 30 patients with moderate glenohumeral osteoarthritis (OA) were randomized to undergo one of two combinations of physical therapy modalities. In group A, patients underwent breaststroke swimming with galvanic current therapy and paraffin therapy, while in group B, patients underwent breaststroke swimming with low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to receive intra-articular injections of intermediate molecular weight (Rusvisk) or low molecular weight (Ostenil) hyaluronic acid to compare the efficacy and safety between the two therapies. Upon analysis, results revealed that hyaluronic acid therapies of differing molecular weights did not significantly differ in terms of weight bearing pain intensity, total WOMAC index scores, or tolerability. However, a significantly Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 80 patients with severe osteoporosis and undergoing surgery for a femoral neck fracture were randomized to have the contralateral hip treated with or without the Prevention Nail System (PNS). The purpose was to determine if the PNS reduced the incidence of contralateral hip fractures in this patient population. Seven contralateral hip Read More »
