Synopsis: 50 elderly male patients with displaced intracapsular fractures were randomly assigned to treatment with either internal fixation or arthroplasty. The purpose was to determine the comparative efficacy between these two surgical options for treatment in this patient population. Operative data demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 80 patients (91 hips) were randomized to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes associated with conventional (UHMWPE) or crosslinked (HXLPE) polyethylene liners, paired with either oxidized zirconiu (oxinium; Ox) or cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) femoral heads. Patients received either CoCr/HXLPE; Ox/HXLPE; CoCr/UHMWPE; or Ox/UHMWPE. Patients are currently Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 300 patients with primary osteoarthritis were previously randomized to undergo total knee replacement either with or without electrocautery of the patellar rim. This study aimed to determine whether the clinical benefits associated with electrocautery at the 1-year follow-up were maintained at 4-year follow-up. Results indicated comparable Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 83 unstable peri-trochanteric fractures were randomized to undergo fixation using either the Gamma 3 intramedullary nailing system (Stryker) or dynamic hip screws (DHS). The purpose of this study was to compare these two interventions with respect to long-term safety and functional outcomes up to 6 years post-operation. This study found Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Forty patients who underwent arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were randomized to 6 weeks of immobilization using either an abduction brace or an antirotation sling. The purpose was to determine if the abduction brace could reduce early postoperative pain in these patients. Follow-up for pain Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 53 patients undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty were randomized to receive an intra-articular injection of either tranexamic acid (TXA; 1000 mg/20 mL) or a saline solution to determine the clinical efficacy of TXA with respect to total blood loss, the requirement for blood transfusion and the incidence of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). The results from this study indicated that the TXA group yielded significantly greater postoperative haemoglobin and hematocrit levels when compared to a placebo. Although the proportion Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to tranexamic acid (750mg) administration either through peri-articular injections or intravenous injection. The purpose of this study was to compare visible postoperative blood loss, hemoglobin drop, transfusion incidence, and the rate of venous thromboembolic (VTE) complications. Hemostatic outcomes were Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 61 patients requiring surgical intervention for cervical disc disease were randomized to undergo either anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) using an interbody tantalum implant or plating using an autologous iliac bone graft. The purpose of this study was to compare these two treatment approaches with respect to clinical efficacy, safety and cost-effectiveness at 5 years post-operation. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 154 patients (>70 years of age) with a full thickness supraspinatus tear were randomly assigned into one of two groups to compare the effectiveness of decompression and arthroscopic repair. The results of the study indicated that both interventions led to significant improvements in function and pain by 1 year follow up, but that repair led to significantly greater improvements than decompression. Differences were greater Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 285 patients who underwent hemiarthroplasty using a direct lateral approach were randomized to either a restriction-free (i.e. no movement restriction, no braces, use of aids as needed) or restricted group (i.e. movement restriction and mandatory use of aids) as their postoperative rehabilitation regimen. The purpose of this study was to determine whether restriction following this type of surgery is necessary with respect to subjective functional outcomes, complications and mortality. Results indicated that, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 64 Patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty were randomized to evaluate the efficacy of patient specific instrumentation (PIS) against the conventional approach. Patients were monitored over 1 year and were evaluated based on alignment (Perth CT protocol), and intraoperative and functional outcomes. The evidence from Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 69 patients with a surgically fixed closed diaphyseal tibial fracture were randomized to receive either strontium ranelate or a placebo. The purpose was to evaluate the effect of strontium ranelate on fracture healing and levels of procollagen N-terminal nucleopeptide (PINP). Results indicated a Read More »
