Synopsis: 230 patients with chronic tennis elbow were randomized to extensor tendon needling with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP), in order to determine the impact of PRP on pain. Following assessments over Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 128 patients were randomized to determine if there was a difference in short-term pain in minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty with either the quadriceps-sparing subvastus approach or medial parapatellar arthrotomy. Pain outcomes (at rest and during movement) were assessed in the first 3 postoperative days, and narcotic consumption was recorded in-hospital and 8 weeks following discharge. Results indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients undergoing rotator cuff repair were randomized to receive either single row repair or double row repair followed by accelerated rehabilitation, in order to compare the re-tear rates between methods. Results from post-surgical Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 256 shoulders with rotator cuff tears including a subscapularis tear were randomized to receive either subscapularis repair or debridement, in order to determine the impact of subscapularis repair on the postoperative outcomes. After a minimum follow-up period of 24 months (range: 24-38 months; average: 31 months), results showed that no significant differences existed between methods on the clinical outcomes of rotator cuff repair. However, subscapularis repair Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 393 patients were randomized to compare three regimens for prevention of thromboembolic disease: Arm A (variable dose of warfarin, starting 5 mg night prior to surgery); Arm B (fondaparinux 2.5 mg daily starting 6-12 hours postoperatively); and Arm C (1 mg warfarin starting 7 days preoperatively). The 12 month Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: In this meta-analysis 4 randomized controlled trials and 8 cohort studies (total of 610 patients) examining the joint preservation and arthroplasty methods for displaced proximal humerus fractures were evaluated to determine which type of treatment was more effective. Following comparisons of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Nine studies (882 patients) were identified to determine whether increased implant density during adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) surgery improved coronal curve correction and clinical outcomes. Seven of the nine studies indicated that patient-reported outcomes and curve correction were maintained regardless of anchor density. However, conclusions from Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 101 patients with stenosing tenosynovitis (trigger finger) symptoms were randomized to receive either one corticosteroid injection or two corticosteroid injections, in order to determine the optimal number of injections needed to treat this condition effectively. Following assessments over a 1 year period, results indicated that one and two injections both provided similar relief from symptoms. However, it was Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 62 patients with nondisplaced scaphoid waist fractures were randomized to wear a below-elbow cast that either included the thumb or excluded the thumb, in order to compare the union and arm-specific disability outcomes from the treatment methods. Following assessments over Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 123 patients with a full thickness superior rotator cuff tear who underwent an arthroscopic double row rotator cuff repair were randomized to two rehabilitation programs to study their effect on healing rates and clinical outcomes. Group 1 involved early passive motion and group 2 had immobilization for the first 6 weeks. After 18 months, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 200 patients with acute displaced midshaft clavicle fractures were randomized either to be treated with open reduction and plate fixation (ORPF) or non-operative treatment to compare the functional outcomes, cost, and non-union rates between the two treatments. After a one year follow-up period the ORPF patients had better DASH and Constant Scores, as well as reduced non-union rates. However, if non-union Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 83 patients with acute dislocations acromio-clavicular (AC) joint were randomized to either operative repair (with hook plate fixation) or nonoperative treatment to compare their clinical outcomes. The assessment at 24 months indicated that hook plate fixation was not superior to nonoperative treatment. Although nonoperative treatment Read More »
