Synopsis: A total of 26 patients (28 knees), who had undergone matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation to treat full-thickness femoral condylar defects in the knee, were randomly assigned into 1 of 2 groups to test the effectiveness of an accelerated weight-bearing protocol following surgery. Patients either received a weight-bearing protocol that aimed to achieve maximum weight bearing by 6 weeks (accelerated) or 8 weeks. Results indicated that Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 662 osteosarcoma patients without detectable metastatic disease were either randomized to three drug (cisplatin, doxorubicin, methotrexate) or four drug chemotherapy (cisplatin, doxorubicin, methotrexate, and ifosfamide). A further comparison was conducted on the effects of the addition muramyl tri-peptide (MTP) to both chemotherapy regimens. Four- and six-year Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 400 patients (older than 60 yr old) with displaced intra-capsular fracture of the proximal femur were randomized to be managed with by either cemented or uncemented hemiarthroplasty. At the 5 Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 121 young active patients (age range 18-35) with acute MRI verified ACL injury were randomized to management with either early ACL reconstruction with structured rehabilitation or structured rehabilitation and a delayed ACL reconstruction if indicated. At 2 year Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 283 patients suffering from sciatica, identified by radiological confirmation of expected disc herniation, were either randomized to a prolonged conservative treatment (delayed surgical intervention if necessary) or to an early surgical intervention. The results indicated that conservative treatment produced similar results as the early surgical intervention at one year. This study also Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 87 patients (age range 18-65 years) having an acute mallet finger were randomized to be immobilized with a custom splint or a volar or dorsal splint. At the study Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 238 patients undergoing surgery for fractures occurring below the knee were randomized to receive prophylaxis with the low molecular weight heparin or a placebo treatment for 14 days. The results of this trial at 12 week follow-up indicated that there were no significant differences in the occurrence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) between the two groups. Second analysis revealed Read More »
Author verified Level 1 RCT
Synopsis: 49 young patients with complete unilateral anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture within the last 10 months, who were unable to compensate for injury (non-coper), were randomized to combined progressive perturbation and progressive quadriceps strength training exercises for 10 preoperative rehabilitation sessions or just progressive quadriceps strength training exercises. The patients undergoing Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 110 patients (ages of 17-70 years) after undergoing a surgical repair for Achilles tendon rupture were kept non-weight-bearing for the first two weeks after surgery. Subsequently, they were randomized to be kept either weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing for an additional four weeks. Early weight-bearing at Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 14 randomized trials were identified (1179 fractures) that assessed the use of calcium phosphate bone cement during fracture reduction. The results of this meta-analysis indicated that calcium phosphate bone cement reduced the prevalence of pain when compared to controls, who did not receive bone grafts. Furthermore, the results Read More »
