Synopsis: 61 patients with a distal humerus fracture and scheduled for plate fixation were randomized with either ulnar nerve decompression, or anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve during surgery. The purpose of this study was to compare elbow function measures and clinical outcomes between groups over a 2-year follow-up. Only results up Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 130 patients with an infected traumatic or surgical wound were randomized following debridement to management with either mupirocin in collagen granules and metronidazole (Co-Mupimet) or Edinburgh University Solution of Lime (EUSOL). Groups were compared for wound healing outcomes over 4-week follow-up. A significant difference Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 138 patients with a femoral neck fracture scheduled for total hip arthroplasty were randomized to be managed with either tranexamic acid or placebo. Calculated total blood loss, transfusion requirement, and adverse events/complications were assessed. The tranexamic acid Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients with a tibial shaft fracture were scheduled for fixation via intramedullary nailing and randomized to nail insertion through a parapatellar approach with the knee in either a semi-extended or flexed position. The purpose of this study was to compare knee pain, assessed using the Symptoms Subset of the International Knee Documentation Committee (SS-IKDC) Score, at 1-year follow-up. The results demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 19 elderly patients (75 years or older) with a displaced olecranon fracture were randomized to be managed nonoperatively through immobilization for 2 weeks, or operatively with either tension band wiring or plate fixation. The purpose of this study was to compare 1-year clinical/functional outcomes, complication rate, and cost between groups. No significant differences Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 41 patients following fixation of a pelvic fracture were randomized to either 10 weeks of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) intervention or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) as a control in postoperative rehabilitation; 26 patients were available for this interim analysis. Patients were assessed for health-related quality of life, abduction & adduction strength in comparison to the non-operated limb, and underwent gait analysis. The NMES group Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 pediatric patients (ages 6 to 11) with femoral shaft fractures were randomized to fracture fixation with either a titanium elastic intramedullary nail or a stainless steel intramedullary nail. Clinical and radiographic data were collected over a 52-week period. Fracture union occurred Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 children (6 months to 15 years) with a closed and Gustilo grade 1/2 isolated traumatic extra-articular middle-third and distal-third tibial shaft fracture were randomized to management with either a below the knee or above the knee plaster of Paris cast. Time to union, residual malunion, range of motion, and associated complications were evaluated over a 6-month period. The results of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Six randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis that compared the use of open reduction and plate fixation to nonoperative management for displaced midshaft clavicle fractures. The results of the pooled analyses indicated that the rate of nonunion was significantly lower in patients treated operatively. While the rate Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 39 patients with displaced scapular body fractures were randomized to either operative management with plates and screws, or nonoperative management. The purpose of this study was to compare clinical, radiographic, and functional outcomes between groups for up to 2 year follow-up. While the range Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 39 patients with 44 closed calcaneus fractures who were scheduled for open reduction and internal fixation were included in this trial to compare the use of negative pressure wound therapy dressings and standard dressings. The outcomes of interest in this trial were wound complications, pain, and functional outcomes. The preliminary results Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 40 patients with open tibial fractures were included in this pilot study to evaluate the feasibility of a large randomized trial investigating the incidence of surgical site infection with different fixation methods. Patients were randomized to fixation using an intramedullary nail or an external fixator, and incidence of superficial surgical site infections was evaluated at 2-week follow-up. The results of Read More »
