Synopsis: 92 patients scheduled for total hip arthroplasty were randomized to either ceramic-on-ceramic or ceramic-on-highly-crosslinked-polyethylene articulations. A total of 68 patients were available to provide either clinical or radiographic data at the 10-year follow-up. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to receive either an uncemented trabecular metal Monoblock tibial component or an uncemented trabecular metal Modular tibial component. The purpose of this study was to compare component migration via radiostereometric analysis between the two groups over the first postoperative year. Data from 41 Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 90 patients scheduled to undergo arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were randomized to received either single row or double row constructs. The purpose of this study was to compare the cost-effectiveness of the two aforementioned treatments over 2-year follow-up. Findings indicated a Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 15 randomized controlled trials (n=1247 patients) were included in this meta-analysis for the purpose of evaluating the benefits of electrical stimulation therapy on bone fracture healing in terms of radiographic union, patient reported pain, and self-reported improvement in function. Results demonstrated that patients who received electrical stimulation therapy had significantly reduced risk of radiographic non-union or persistent non-union in addition to significantly reduced patient-reported VAS pain scores when compared to sham treatment. Improvement in self-reported Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 41 patients scheduled to undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to undergo the procedure with spinal anaesthesia with our without the addition of epimorph. The purpose of this study was to determine if the addition of epimorph to spinal anaesthesia yielded significantly greater pain control and decreased consumption of narcotics without increasing postoperative complication rates. Outcomes were assessed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 37 collegiate-level overhead athletes who competed in either volleyball, swimming, or tennis, and demonstrated a 15-degree or more deficit in shoulder internal rotation were randomized to either a daily posterior shoulder stretching exercise program or a control group who continued normal activities. The purpose of this study was to determine if the posterior shoulder stretching program demonstrated effectiveness in increasing shoulder internal rotation and horizontal adduction. Patients were assessed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 44 patients scheduled for primary total hip arthroplasty were randomized to be administered either topical or intravenous tranexamic acid (TEA). The purpose of this study was to compare serum concentrations of TEA when evaluated one-hour post-administration. Patients who received Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 52 paediatric patients with a displaced supracondylar fracture of the humerus scheduled for K-wire fixation were randomized to either a lateral pin configuration or a crossed pin configuration. The purpose of this study to evaluate if lateral K-wire fixation offered non-inferior results regarding the loss of reduction when compared to crossed K-wire fixation. The quality of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 35 patients (37 shoulders treated) with adhesive capsulitis were randomized to receive an image-guided arthrographic glenohumeral injection with either local anaesthetic (lidocaine), steroids (triamcinolone), and contrast, or local anaesthetic and contrast only. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the addition of triamcinolone to lidocaine and contrast is effective in improving pain, function, and disability outcomes of patients with adhesive capsulitis. Findings indicated significant Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients with anterior shoulder dislocation were randomized to receive sling immobilization in either external or internal rotation for the purpose of comparing recurrent dislocation and healing rate of labral lesions (when present) over a 24-month follow-up period. The results demonstrated that recurrence and healing rates were comparable between immobilization groups. However, a subgroup Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 82 patients scheduled to undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to receive either a preoperative motor sparing knee block (MSB) injection that targets the adductor canal and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, or intraoperative periarticular infiltration (PAI) to compare their effects on duration of analgesia, postoperative quadriceps power, and length of hospital stay. Findings indicated that the MSB group reported a significantly longer duration of analgesia compared to the PAI group. Postoperative quadriceps power Read More »
