Synopsis: 120 patients with patellar tendinopathy were randomized to either Hyaluronan, botulinum toxin, or placebo injections. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of Hyaluronan alone or with botulinum toxin would be efficacious and safe in comparison to saline placebo injections. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 30 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee were included in the study and randomized to one of three groups: individually tailored exercise group, targeted exercise adherence group, and usual physiotherapy care group. The study was conducted in order to assess the feasibility of the interventions as well as their impact on general physical activity and exercise behavior. It was found Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 58 patients with lateral epicondylosis were randomized to either a single injection of 1.0cc hyaluronic acid (HA) and 40 units of botulinus toxin (Botox), or a placebo injection of 1.0cc of normal saline. The purpose of this study was to determine whether peri-articular injection of HA as an adjunct to Botox was effective in improving pain at rest, grip strength, and the global assessment of elbow injury. Findings indicated significant Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) were randomized to receive an intra-articular injection of either methylprednisolone or saline placebo. The purpose of the study was to determine whether an intra-articular injection of corticosteroid prior to exercise therapy significantly reduced pressure-pain sensitivity when compared to a saline injection. The findings of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 126 patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) and at least one comorbid disease (cardiac disease, heart failure, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or obesity) were randomized to receive either specialized exercise therapy or placed on a waiting list. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness and safety of an exercise therapy treatment when compared to a control group. Findings indicated significantly Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 156 patients with knee osteoarthritis were included in this study and randomized to receive a single injection of either Invossa (TissueGene-C) gene therapy, containing non-transformed and transduced chondrocytes, or saline. The study was conducted in order to determine if the gene therapy was effective in improving cartilage integrity via assessing clinical outcomes at 1 year. The findings of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 93 patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to participate in a neuromuscular exercise program (NEMEX), or receive pharmacological intervention with acetaminophen and oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (PHARMA). The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of the two treatments on knee joint loading during walking and patient-reported pain and function. The findings of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 27 patients with primary hip osteoarthritis (OA) were followed up after 6.5 years of receiving acetabular cup implants with either additional screw stabilization with two 4.0mm screws of variable length, or no additional screw stabilization. The purpose of this follow-up study was to determine the impact of additional screw fixation of a cementless, all-polyethylene press-fit socket, compared to a socket without screw fixation on migration, wear and clinical outcomes in the long-term. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 52 patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) were randomized to receive either a physical activity regimen of walking 6000 steps daily, or advised on the UK Department of Health physical activity guidelines. The purpose of this study was to determine whether physical activity through 6000 steps per day was effective in improving knee OA symptoms. The Knee Injury Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 54 ACL injury patients originally randomized to receive rehabilitation involving physiotherapy with or without reconstruction surgery were included in this follow-up study for the purpose of determining significant associations between patient-reported outcomes (including function, knee-related quality of life, and postural balance) and lower extremity muscle function, when assessed after a mean of 3 years post-therapy. Results demonstrated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 164 patients with mild-to-moderate knee osteoarthritis were randomized to a combined glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate (GS/CS) daily treatment or a placebo for 6 months. The purpose of this study was to compare pain reduction and functional improvement between groups after 6 months. Results demonstrated a Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients eligible for total knee replacement (TKR) were randomized to undergo an operative TKR procedure prior to a 12-week non-operative treatment, or the non-operative treatment alone. The purpose of this trial was to determine whether the combination of surgical and non-surgical therapy was associated with a superior reduction of pain experienced for several outcomes when assessed after 3 months. Results demonstrated that Read More »
