Synopsis: 41 patients with tibial shaft fractures were randomly allocated to undergo surgical fixation with infrapatellar (IP) or suprapatellar (SP) intramedullary nailing. The purpose of this pilot trial was to compare clinical and functional outcomes of the knee between the two approaches up to 12 months post-surgery. IP and SP Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: A total of 140 patients diagnosed with Lauge-Hansen supination-external rotation (SER) IV ankle fractures were identified in this prospective randomized trial. 24 patients were identified as having an unstable syndesmosis (external rotation stress test) comparatively to the ipsilateral ankle, and were randomly allocated to either receive syndesmotic screw fixation or no syndesmotic fixation. The remaining 116 patients had a stable syndesmosis compared to the uninjured ankle. This study aimed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 185 elderly patients with an intra-articular distal radius fracture were randomly allocated to either surgical treatment with volar locking plate fixation or closed reduction and 6-week cast immobilization. This study aimed to determine whether operative treatment was more effective than cast immobilization for elderly patients with an intra-articular distal radius fracture. Follow-up was performed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 109 patients with an ankle fracture (OTA type 44) and presenting within 24 hours of injury were randomized to undergo either ankle aspiration or sham treatment (control) where no fluid was removed. This study aimed to examine whether or not aspiration of hemarthrosis would reduce pain and use of narcotic pain medication in patients with acute ankle fractures. Results revealed no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 59 patients with midshaft clavicular fractures were randomly assigned to receive either reconstruction plate fixation or elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) fixation. This trial aimed to compare the clinical, functional, and radiographic outcomes of both treatment methods up to 12 months postoperatively. The findings indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients with A2-OTA type fracture of the distal radius were randomly assigned to receive either long or short arm casting. The purpose of this trial was to compare elbow function between both casts at 6 and 18 weeks post-intervention. Results revealed fewer Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 229 patients undergoing open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of a closed limb fracture, with standard preoperative and intraoperative prophylactic antibiotic administration, were randomized to receive 23 hours of postoperative prophylactic cefazolin or placebo. The primary purpose of this trial was to compare infection rates between these two postoperative treatments until bony union. Results found postoperative Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 461 adult patients with acute, dorsally displaced fractures of the distal radius were randomly assigned to undergo either Kirschner wire fixation or locking-plate fixation. This trial aimed to evaluate the functional and cost-effectiveness of both treatments over the first year after surgery, with follow-up conducted at 3, 6, and 12 months. The primary outcome Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 89 of 102 enrolled patients with long bone fracture were identified as vitamin D deficient and randomized to receive a single dose of oral 100,000 IU vitamin D within the initial 2 weeks post-injury or a placebo. The purpose of this trial was to investigate the rate of nonunion in this patient population and assess the feasibility of using acute high-dose vitamin D supplementation in patients with vitamin D deficiency. Nonunion rate was Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 49 patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation of tibial plateau fracture were randomly allocated to receive or not receive a hinged knee brace after surgery. Those allocated the brace usage wore the brace for 6 weeks postoperatively. The purpose of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients scheduled to undergo operative fixation of ankle fractures were randomly allocated to receive popliteal sciatic nerve block either through a single injection or a continuous infusion. The purpose of the study was to investigate whether continuous anesthetic infusion or single injection would reduce rebound pain (reoccurring pain between 12 to 24 hours postoperatively) and narcotic usage following operative fixation of an ankle fracture. Results revealed that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 adult patients with simple elbow dislocations were randomly assigned to early mobilization or plaster immobilization after closed reduction. This study aimed to compare the functional and clinical outcomes of both treatment methods at 12 months post-intervention. The findings from Read More »
