Synopsis: 320 patients requiring anterior cruciate ligament repair were randomized to three groups to compare two forms of single bundle repair with the anatomical double bundle repair. Patients underwent either conventional single bundle (CSB), anatomical single bundle (ASB), or anatomical double bundle (ADB) repair. Results at a Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: One-hundred patients undergoing primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with bone-patellar tendon-bone allograft were randomized to receive a platelet-enriched gel or none, as part of the surgical procedure. The primary outcomes were clinical, radiographic, and inflammatory parameters measured over a 2 year period. There were no Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 54 patients undergoing ACL reconstruction by autologous hamstring graft method were randomized to undergo hamstring fixation with either RigidFix resorbable pins or BioCryl resorbable screws. Recent biomechanical studies have suggested that the use of resorbable pins is advantageous, but it has yet to be determined if these findings lead to significant improvements in clinical outcomes. At 2 year Read More »
Author verified Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 40 patients who had recurrent shoulder instability were randomized to receive Bankart reconstruction using either polygluconate-B polymer (PGA) tacks or self-reinforced poly-L-lactic (PLLA) tacks. This study assessed clinical and radiographic results of Bankart reconstruction with these two implants. The results from Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 64 patients in the military with complete anterior cruciate ligament tears were randomized to receive ACL reconstruction either with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BTB) autograft or hamstring autograft (HS). This study aimed to compare these two procedures in a 3 year follow up. The results indicated Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 10 patients were randomized to evaluate the efficacy of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for the treatment of patellar tendinopathy. In this double-blinded trial, patients received either dry needling and eccentric exercise (control) or dry needling with PRP and eccentric exercise. When assessed after Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 19 orthopaedic residents with experience in routine knee arthroscopy, but none in arthroscopic meniscal repair, performed 12 meniscal repairs on a knee simulator over a 3 week period in order to gain experience. The residents were then randomized to perform either one meniscal repair every month, one meniscal repair every 3 months, or no meniscal repairs over the course of the study. 6 months after randomization, the orthopaedic residents performed another 12 meniscal repairs over a 3 week period. All residents displayed Read More »
