Synopsis: 54 patients undergoing anatomic triple-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) were randomized to receive either the TightRope (Arthrex) fixation device or the EndoButton-CL (Smith & Nephew) fixation device. The purpose of this study was to determine the difference between groups in the frequency of failing to fix the device on the femoral cortex on either the first attempt, or an additional two more trials at turning the button. Results demonstrated a Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 40 patients undergoing single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery were randomized to undergo the procedure with either a modified transtibial or anteromedial portal technique. The purpose of the trial was to assess whether clinical outcomes and femoral tunnel characteristics were different between the groups. Both groups demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to either a subvastus approach or a standard medial parapatellar approach. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of the subvastus approach to the conventional medial parapatellar approach in TKA. Follow-up was conducted Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 16 male patients with patellar tendinopathy were randomized into two group, and either received injections of hyaluronic acid or corticosteroid, one injection every two weeks for a total of three injections. The purpose of the study was to compare the efficacy of hyaluronic acid and corticosteroid injection therapy. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 36 patients scheduled to undergo cartilage or osteochondral repair were randomized to either a synthetic resorbable biphasic implant (TruFit Plug) group or a microfracture surgery group. The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical outcomes and assess the MRI findings of these two methods of treatment for chondral or osteochondral defects. Results of this Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 75 patients undergoing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were randomized into two groups which either received or did not receive coracohumeral ligament release (CHLR) during surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine if CHLR is effective in impproving clinical shoulder outcomes after rotator cuff repair over a 1 year post-operative period. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 284 participants with knee osteoarthritis (OA) were randomized to undergo arthroscopic arthroplasty (AA) or arthroscopic debridement (AD). The purpose of this study was to explore any differences in outcome between AA and AD in patients with moderate-to-severe knee OA over 60 months postoperatively. Results demonstrated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 30 patients experiencing pain due to tenosynovitis and/or tendonitis of the biceps tendon were included in this study. The purpose of this trial was to assess whether the accuracy of the pain relief injection into the tendon sheath of the long head of the biceps brachii was greater with the use of an ultrasound guide, or without. The study found Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 34 patients were randomized to receive either a controlled division or a forceful stripping of the hamstring tendon to be used as a graft in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The goal of this study was to determine if controlled division reduced donor site morbidity in an ACL reconstruction. The results indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 268 patients (330 knees) undergoing primary TKA were randomized into three groups, receiving either rivaroxaban (10mg) for 7 or 10 days post operation, or low molecular weight heparin (5000IU) for 2 days followed by aspirin 100mg for 5 days. The purpose of the study was to analyze the incidence of venous thromboembolism among groups to determine the safety and efficacy of prophylaxis regimens, over 3 months post-surgery. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 330 patients were randomized to receive either a patellar tendon (PT), quadruple-stranded hamstring tendon (HT), or double bundle using hamstring tendons (DB) in an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The goal of this study was to assess complete graft re-injury, complete re-rupture, and atraumatic re-ruptures. Results found that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 38 patients with rotator cuff tear were randomized to undergo arthroscopic rotator cuff repair either with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. The purpose of the study was to determine if PRP treatment accelerated recovery and increased stability of the repaired rotator cuff, at a minimum of 16 months post-surgery. Results showed that Read More »
