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 »
Author verified Level 1 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 86 patients with full-thickness rotator cuff tears were randomized to undergo arthroscopic repair with or without acromioplasty. The results from the 2 year study indicated that both groups displayed significant improvements in WORC and ASES scores; however, no significant difference was observed in these scores between the two groups. In addition, it Read More »
Author verified Level 1 RCT
Synopsis: 51 patients with operatively treated tibial shaft fractures were randomized to either receive low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) or treatment with a deactivated LIPUS device, to determine what the possibility of a definitive trial would be on assessing the impact of LIPUS on patient outcomes. After collecting over Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: In this systematic review, 18 studies examining the preoperative effects of exercise-based interventions on pain and physical function of patients waiting to undergo hip or knee replacement surgery were evaluated. Following comparisons of Read More »
Author verified Level 1 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 121 young, active adults with acute anterior cruciate ligament tears were assigned to either rehabilitation with early ACL reconstruction surgery or a rehabilitation program with the option of delayed ACL reconstruction. After 5 years, Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 36 patients (all female) were randomized to determine which treatment, labral repair or labral debridement, was more effective for femoroacetabular impingement. Patients received either labral repair or labral debridement, and were followed-up at a minimum of one year postoperatively. Results suggest that Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 2256 patients were randomized to explore the effectiveness of telephone services as initial treatment of muskuloskeletal problems. Patients were randomized to receive PhysioDirect primary assessment or the pathway of usual care. Results indicated that Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 36 patients with ankle sprains were randomized to receive a treatment using an elastic compression stocking or a standard treatment with Tubigrip tubular bandage. The primary outcome measure was the difference in health-related quality of life (QoL) between the two groups. Results indicated that Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 47 patients with displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures necessitating fixation (52 fractures), were randomized to receive either open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) in conjunction with a calcium phosphate paste (bone substitute material (BSM)), or ORIF alone. This study investigated the ability of BSM to preserve Bohler's angle and to reduce calcaneal height collapse. The results indicated Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: Two parallel systematic reviews and meta-analyses were performed to determine the affiliation between early migration of acetabular cups and late aseptic revision. One review covered the early migration data from radio-stereometric analysis (RSA) studies (26 studies involving 700 cups), and the other focused on revision rates for aseptic loosening from long-term survival studies (49 studies involving 38,013 cups). The results showed Read More »
Author verified Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 48 patients (68 knees) scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to receive a cemented, cementless non-coated, or cementless hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated tibial component to determine the effect of HA on long-term migration of the prosthesis. Radiostereometric analyses (RSA), Knee Society Scores, Hospital for Special Surgery scores, and radiographic evaluation were recorded over 16 years. The results indicated Read More »
