Synopsis: 120 patients requiring metal on metal hip resurfacing were randomized to receive a cemented femoral component or a cementless femoral component in order to determine the effect cement on femoral neck bone mineral density. The results of the study indicate that both cemented and cementless femoral components result in increased bone mineral density over the 1 year follow-up period. Compared with a Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 140 patients, under 70 years of age requiring total hip arthroplasty, were randomized to receive an implant with an alumina-alumina (ceramic on ceramic) bearing surface or a metal-polyethylene bearing surface. The results from Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 96 patients with AO-A3 burst fractures between T11 and L3 were randomized to receive the TLSO brace or no orthosis. At 3 months, there was no difference between the two groups for the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ) score. Over 104 weeks, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 51 patients were randomized to receive a BioForm total knee replacement with or without screw fixation to determine if this augmentation is necessary for stable fixation. The results indicate that screws did not significantly improve implant fixation, as both groups demonstrated similar implant migration at two years. The amount of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 41 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty were randomized to receive metal on metal (MoM) or metal on polyethylene (MoP) bearing surfaces. Over 10 years, there were no differences between the two groups for clinical or radiographic outcomes. The MoM group Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 156 patients requiring total hip arthroplasty were randomized to undergo a "new" anterolateral Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) approach or the "standard" limited incision procedure. Evaluation over a 24 months period indicated that the "new" anterolateral approach did not result in superior clinical outcomes. Additionally, this novel Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 9 publications (10 studies) were identified in this meta-analysis comparing external fixation and open reduction with internal fixation (ORIF) using plates for the treatment of distal radius fractures. Meta-analysis of the identified randomized trials demonstrated that ORIF led to significantly lower Disability of the Arm and Shoulder (DASH) scores than external fixation. Additionally, ORIF appeared Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 14 orthopaedic residents were randomized to undergo a VR simulator training program or standard training program in order to determine the effectiveness of virtual reality arthroscopic knee training. The results of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 83 patients with acute, complete dislocations of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint were randomized to undergo operative repair with hook plate fixation or non-operative treatment. The results of this study indicate that the non-operative group achieved significantly better early outcomes scores; however, these differences were lost at the final follow-up. By the 2 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 18 female patients with distal radius fractures were included in this randomized trial to examine the effects of cross education during the rehabilitation process. Patients were randomized to normal rehabilitation and contralateral hand strength training or normal rehabilitation alone. At 12 weeks, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 187 patients with full thickness rotator cuff tears were randomized to receive early mobilization or standard immobilization for 6 weeks after mini-open rotator cuff repair (MORCR). At 6 weeks, the early mobilization group demonstrated greater abduction, flexion, and scaption than the standard group, but these differences were no longer significant at 3 months. At 6 months, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 87 patients undergoing shoulder arthroplasty were randomized to receive lesser tuberosity osteotomy (LTO) or subscapularis tenotomy (ST) to compare differences in healing rates and fatty infiltration. At 12 months, there was no difference between the two groups with respect to the healing rate and the Goutallier mean fatty infiltration grade. From the pre-operative Read More »
