Synopsis: 60 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to evaluate the effect of the Knee Flexion Dynasplint (KFD) on range of motion after TKA. Patients were allocated to the KFD group or a control, and were evaluated over 6 months. The results demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 80 patients (91 hips) who were scheduled to receive total hip arthroplasty were randomly assigned into 1 of 4 groups to compare the clinical and radiological outcomes of four bearing surface combinations. The four combinations were: cobalt-chrome (CoCr) on standard, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), CoCr on cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), Oxinium (Ox) on UHMWPE, and Oxinium on XLPE. At an average Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Data from 5 studies (n=265) was pooled to compare methods of surgical treatment of traumatic anterior shoulder instability, between arthroscopic repair and open repair. The evidence presented in this conference report demonstrated comparable results for recurrence of instability, strength, and shoulder function between the two interventions. Arthroscopic repair was Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 110 patients who had undergone open reduction and internal fixation for an unstable ankle fracture were randomized to either early weight-bearing (i.e. mobilization and weight-bearing at 2 weeks) or delayed weight-bearing (i.e. immobilization and casting until 6 weeks). The purpose of this study was to compare these two postoperative protocols with respect to physical function, quality of life and the incidence of complications. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 38 patients were randomized to undergo cruciate-retaining, cemented total knee arthroplasty with either patient-specific cutting blocks, or computer navigation. This study aimed to compare outcomes of radiostereometric analysis and health outcome questionnaires. Results at 1 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Evidence from 6 studies (4 RCTs and 2 Prospective Cohort Studies) was analysed to determine differences in treatment outcomes for knee osteoarthritis between Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or placebo. A total of 577 patients were included in the analysis, 264 (45.8%) allocated to PRP and 313 (54.2%) allocated to a control (HA or placebo). The evidence presented Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients with thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) arthritis were randomized to undergo trapeziectomy, followed by either suture fixation, or ligament reconstruction with tendon interposition (control), to compare postoperative outcomes. Results indicated similar Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) questionnaire scores, analog pain scores, strength, and range of motion between groups up to 6 months postoperatively. Operative time was Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 330 patients requiring ACL reconstruction were randomized to undergo the procedure using either a double-bundle hamstring tendon autograft (DB group), a quadruple-stranded hamstring tendon autograft (HT group) or a patellar tendon autograft (PT group). The purpose of this study was to compare these two treatment approaches with respect to rate of re-injury and quality of life at 2 years postoperatively. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 29 patients, >18 years of age, undergoing osteosynthesis for shortened, displaced, midshaft clavicle fractures, were randomly assigned to either pin or plate fixation to compare efficacy between the two methods. Over 12 months, both groups demonstrated improvements in activities of daily living (ADL), American Shoulder and Elbow Society score (ASES), Physical Composite Score (PCS), Mental Composite Score (MCS), and EQ5, but that no difference was apparent between groups regarding these outcomes. Both methods of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 200 patients with inflammatory soft tissue tendonitis, Achilles tendonitis, or plantar fasciitis were randomized to evaluate the efficacy of the Orthobiologics Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) intralesional injection as compared to that of steroid injections. Patients were monitored over 2 years based on the Roles-Maudsley score (RM Score), a visual analog scale, and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) score. While results at Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 334 patients with osteoarthritis and considering total hip or knee arthroplasty were randomized to receive either patient decision aids and usual education, or usual education alone, prior to surgical consultation. This study aimed to determine whether decision aids improved wait times, surgery rates, and decision quality compared to usual education. Results indicated shorter Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 126 patients, ranging from 16-90 years of age, with fracture of the distal femur were randomized to internal fixation through either locked plating or retrograde intramedullary nailing. Participants were followed-up for 12 months for radiographic, functional, and physical outcomes. Both methods of Read More »
