Synopsis: 104 patients who had undergone total hip replacement were randomized into two groups which received either hip resurfacing total hip arthroplasty (THA) or large head metal-on-metal THA. The purpose was to determine revision rates and metal ion levels at medium term follow-up for large head metal-on-metal THA. Results indicated similar Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients undergoing hip arthroscopy were randomized to receive either preoperative femoral nerve block or saline treatment to determine the benefits of femoral nerve block after 24 hours in terms of opioid consumption. Results indicated that femoral nerve block lead to less pain in the early post-operative period without altering opioid consumption or adverse events. However, femoral nerve Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 64 patients were randomized to receive either a multimodal drug injection or a single anesthetic injection for pain reduction following total knee arthroplasty. The goal of this study was to determine a standard dosage and composition for periarticular drug injection. The results indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 55 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) were randomized to undergo either a minimally invasive anterior approach or minimally invasive posterior approach. The purpose of the study was to compare the two techniques in terms of safety, function, and radiographic outcomes. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 159 patients undergoing unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to receive both an adductor canal (AC) peripheral nerve block and periarticular infiltration (PI), or one of the interventions on its own. The purpose of the study was to determine which protocol was optimal in managing pain without hindering motor ability. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 18 patients were randomized to receive a semitendinosus and gracilis (STG) tendon graft from the operative limb, or the contralateral limb for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The goal of this study was to determine the effect of hip position on knee flexor strength. Results of this Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 73 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to receive analgesia in the form of a Continuous Femoral Nerve Block (CFNB) and Posterior Capsular Injection (PSI) or a Periarticular Injection (PI). The purpose of the trial was to assess which intervention provided optimal pain management when used in combination with oral patient controlled analgesia (PCA). Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 127 patients were randomized to have graft tension determined either by a measured tensioning device or by the operating surgeon, when performing an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The goal of this study was to determine if the tensioning device had better clinical outcomes and knee laxity than the surgeon-determined graft tension. Results of this Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 56 patients with a grade III acromio-clavicular joint dislocation were randomized to undergo conservative treatment or a surgical intervention involving hook plate fixation. The study aimed to compare the two techniques in terms of clinical outcomes. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 96 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to receive a 2 week protocol of either oral aspirin or injected low molecular weight heparin for postoperative deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prevention, in order to determine patient satisfaction. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 450 patients undergoing posterior spinal surgery with a Hemovac drain were randomized to receive either 24 or 72 hours of antibiotics postoperatively. The purpose of the study was to determine whether prolonged (i.e. 72 hours) administration of antibiotics reduced the incidence of superficial and deep infection in patients. The study found Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 39 medical clerks with basic arthroscopic knowledge were randomized to either a virtual reality (VR) or bench top (BT) surgical simulation set-up. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of the simulators, assessed by transferable skills from the training into the operating room. Results had found Read More »
