Synopsis: 48 patients scheduled for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty were randomized to either cementless or cemented fixation. Patients were assessed for component migration over 5-year follow-up using radiostereometric analysis. Results at 1-year Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 72 patients undergoing anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) were included in this study to determine the effects of different steroid treatments on postoperative dysphagia and dysphonia. Patients were randomized to three groups: a control group receiving no steroid, an intravenous (IV) steroid group receiving 10mg of dexamethasone intraoperatively, or a local steroid group receiving 40mg of triamcinolone in the retropharyngeal space directly on the cervical plate. At 2 weeks, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 112 patients scheduled for arthroscopic management of a lesion of the long head of biceps brachii tendon were randomized to undergo either tenodesis or tenotomy. Follow-up was planned for 24 months postoperative, and outcomes reported included the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Score and cosmetic outcome. Based on available Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 573 patients included a randomized trial to compare two methods of surgical fixation for femoral neck fractures in the elderly were also included in this observational study to determine the proportion of patients taking vitamin D supplementation and its effects on physical function and reoperation rate. Patients were categorized into 3 cohorts; non-users (did not take vitamin D supplementation), inconsistent vitamin D supplementation users (1-2 visits), and consistent vitamin D supplementation users (3-4 visits). Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 240 patients undergoing intramedullary nail fixation of stable intertrochanteric femoral fractures were randomized to three groups; static locking, dynamic locking, or no locking. Patients were assessed for intraoperative outcomes, and clinical outcome measure over 12-month follow-up. Patients in the Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 57 patients scheduled for double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction were randomized to tibial fixation with either the use of pure poly-L-lactic acid interference screws or screws containing beta (B)-tricalcium phosphate (TCP). Patients were assessed on CT at 12 months for tibial tunnel enlargement at four tunnel depths: at the joint line, mid-tunnel, mid-screw, and at the tunnel aperture. Both groups demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 2,447 patients with an open wound fracture were originally included in this randomized 2x3 factorial design trial evaluating the use of different irrigation solutions (soap or saline) and pressures (very low, low, high) on the rate of reoperation and clinical outcomes. This was a secondary analysis of this trial conducted to determine the effect of these interventions on health-related quality-of-life (HR-QoL) and function at a follow-up of 12-months, and to describe the progression of HR-QoL and function of this patient population, in general. The results indicated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 30 patients with ankle fractures undergoing open reduction and internal fixation were randomized to wound closure using either an Allgöwer-Donati technique or a vertical mattress suture technique. The purpose of this study was to compared wound perfusion between these two closure techniques. Wound perfusion was Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 90 patients with either an ankle fracture (n=50) or distal radius fracture (n=40) undergoing surgical fixation were randomized to either a continuous block or single-shot block for analgesia. Cases of ankle fracture received a combined popliteal-sciatic nerve block, and cases of distal radius fracture received an infraclavicular block. Results demonstrated significant Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 76 patients scheduled for shoulder arthroplasty were randomized to postoperative analgesia with either a continuous or single-shot interscalene block. Patients were assessed for pain, opioid consumption, the length of stay, and the incidence of adverse events. In addition, patients Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 51 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to either a kinematic alignment strategy using MRI-based patient specific instrumentation or to traditional mechanical alignment strategy using computer navigation. Patients were assessed for implant migration over the first 2 years postoperatively using radiostereometric analysis. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 958 patients scheduled for total hip arthroplasty were randomized to different groups for thromboprophylaxis. In patients <60 years of age (n=600), randomization was to either rivaroxaban, enoxaparin, or placebo. In patients 60 Read More »
