Synopsis: 120 patients with displaced midshaft clavicle fracture were randomized to receive either surgical plate fixation or intramedullary fixation. The purpose of this study was to compare the results of plate and intramedually fixation via the Surgical Therapeutic Index, a tool in which the success rate of treatment is divided by the observed complication rate. In the application Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: In a previous study, 100 adult patients with elbow dislocations were treated using either early mobilization or plaster immobilization in a randomized controlled trial assessing functional outcome. The data from the previous trial was used in the present cost analysis to compare the costs of early mobilization and plaster immobilization. Results demonstrated non-significant Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 157 patients with tibial fracture and undergoing intramedullary nail fixation were randomized to have the distal locking screw insertion assisted by electromagnetic navigation (E-navigation), or placement via conventional methods. Conventional methods of screw insertion included either the free-hand technique or the radiolucent drill technique. The purpose of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients (aged 18-64) with unstable ankle fractures requiring fixation were randomized to receive either fibular nailing or open reduction and internal fixation with plates and screws. The purpose of this study was to compare the two fixation methods in terms of clinical outcomes and complications after 2 years. The results indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients with acute ankle fractures who underwent open reduction and internal fixation were randomized to general anaesthesia and local anaesthesia with intraoperative liposomal bupivacaine (treatment group), or general anaesthesia alone (control group). The purpose of the study was to compare pain scores between the randomized groups. Patients of the Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 40 patients with distal femoral fractures (osteoporotic or periprosthetic) were randomized to undergo fixation with either a polyaxial locking plate (Polyax; BIOMET) or first-generation locking plate (LISS; DePuy/SYNTHES). The purpose of the study was to compare the union rates and clinical outcomes between the two plate designs. The results indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 250 patients with displaced fractures of the proximal humerus involving the surgical neck were randomly assigned to receive either surgical or non-surgical intervention as treatment. The purpose of this study was to compare functional and clinical outcomes, as well as cost-effectiveness, between the two methods to determine if surgery offers any significant advantage over conservative treatment. The results demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 40 patients with acute, closed, unstable ligamentous Lisfranc injuries were randomized to receive either steel or bioabsorbable screws for fixation. The purpose of the study was to compare long-term clinical and radiological outcomes of the two screw types. Steel screws were Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 620 patients with a malleolar fracture were randomized to receive either close contact casting (CCC) or open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) as treatment. The purpose of the study was to compare functional and clinical outcomes, as well as costs, between the two groups. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 249 elderly patients with intertrochanteric hip fractures were randomized to receive an InterTAN intermedullary device or conventional sliding hip screws, to determine if the use of an InterTAN device resulted in comparatively improved function.The primary outcomes were the Functional Independence Measure and the Timed Up and Go Test. Both methods displayed comparable efficacy in terms of functional and mobility outcomes. The InterTAN intramedullary Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 80 patients being treated for orthopaedic trauma were randomized to either receive or not receive nutritional counseling and daily protein supplementation. The purpose of the study was to determine if the use of nutritional intervention would decrease rates of patient malnutrition up to 7 days in hospital care, and up to 6 weeks after surgery. No significant differences Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 94 patients with proximal-third tibial shaft fractures were selected for the purpose of comparing the semi-extended suprapatellar incision approach and the conventional medial parapatellar surgical approach. Outcomes included in terms of guidewire and intramedullary nail alignment. The results indicated Read More »
