Synopsis: The long term prevalence of osteoarthritis following ACL injury and reconstruction was assessed to compared differences between graft types and identify other possible predictors in a 14 year follow-up of a randomized trial. 164 (82% evaluated) patients were randomized to either semitendinosus-tendon graft or bone-patella-tendon-bone graft. The 14 year Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 12 studies evaluating a total of 1074 patients suffering from acute Achilles tendon ruptures were included in this analysis, comparing operative and non-operative treatment. Results indicated there is no increase in the incidence of re-rupture with non-operative treatment. In addition, it Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 51 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee were randomized to receive either intramedullary or extramedullary tibial instrumentation, during minimal invasive surgery in total knee arthroplasty (MIS-TKA). Leg alignment and tibial slope were measured throughout the course of the study in order to determine which instrumentation resulted in better alignment, and as a result, increased TKA survival rate. By the end Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 80 patients were randomized to either patient-specific cutting guides (PSCGs) or conventional instrumentation TKA to compare the accuracy of limb alignment and component positioning in total knee replacement. Post-surgical radiographs, perioperative time, blood loss and need of transfusion showed no significant differences in tibiofemoral angle or femoral component alignment or other outcomes. PSCG’s angle alignment Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 32 patients were randomized to undergo anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with spinal anesthesia and patient sedation with or without an additional femoral nerve block, in order to determine what impact the femoral nerve block would have on pain and early functionality. Following 7 days of assessment, results indicated that the femoral nerve block provided significant short term pain relief within the first 6 postoperative hours. However, this benefit Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 146 patients with acute knee joint effusion following trauma were randomized to receive either joint aspiration treatment or not to evaluate differences in clinical outcomes and safety. Results indicated that there were significant short-term improvements in all clinical outcomes, although no difference was found after 2 weeks. In addition, complication Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 192 patients, older than 18 years, with chronic pain or swelling of knee and degeneration of the joint were randomized to be treated either with platelet rich plasma (PRP) or viscosupplementation (Hyaluronic Acid-HA) injections. To compare both treatment modalities for knee chondropathy or early osteoarthritis (OA), a year of clinical evaluation demonstrated that both groups had significant improvements in function and quality of life. No major adverse Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 30 patients undergoing single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring grafts were randomized to receive either the transtibial or anteromedial portal technique. The purpose was to determine the difference between the two techniques in bone tunnel placement, graft angle and bending of the graft angle at the tunnel aperture. Seven days following Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 70 patients requiring double-bundle ACL reconstruction were randomized to receive treatment using either the anteromedial portal technique for femoral tunnel drilling or the transtibial technique to observe differences in clinical outcomes between the two groups. Results indicated that there was no difference in Lachman test results, pivot shift test results, side-to-side differences of KT-2000, Lysholm scores, subjective and objective IKDC scores or isokinetic muscle strength between the two groups. However the anteromedial Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) were randomized to determine the effect on anterior knee pain of quadriceps-tendon-bone autografts compared to bone-patellar tendon-bone autografts. Follow-up was conducted for two years postoperatively. Findings at the Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 45 patients were randomized to undergo either non-anatomical (single-bundle transtibial) or anatomical (single-bundle anteromedial, or double-bundle) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, in order to compare which technique was most effective in returning normal knee rotational stability. Following 1 year Read More »
