Synopsis: Two hundred and seven studies with 32959 participants were analyzed in this network meta-analysis.The aim of this study was to compare outpatient treatments for managing acute pain from non-low back musculoskeletal injuries.Results revealed that the treatment with the greatest benefit was using topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs).Afterwards, oral NSAIDs were beneficial which was followed by acetiminophen with or without diclofenac.The benefits included relieving pain 1-7 days, as well physical functioning , and symptom relief. Moreover, topical NSAIDs demonstrated increase in treatment satisfaction. Fentanyl and acetaminophen... Read More »

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 mean follow-up of 51 months indicated that ASB repair provided superior anteroposterior and rotational stability compared to CSB repair. However, ADB repair... Read More »

Synopsis: 82 patients, under the age of 65, who required primary total hip replacement due for osteoarthritis were randomized into one of two groups: resurfacing hip arthroplasty (RHA), or a metal-on-metal THA to compare the effects of these treatments on bone mineral density.The results showed that the resurfacing arthroplasty group had significantly higher mean BMD scores at 12 months, and 24 months after the surgery occurred. This finding supported... Read More »

Synopsis: 40 patients with a symptomatic partial supraspinatus tear were randomized to receive a subacromial injection of either platelet-rich plasma or corticosteroid (triamcinolone acetonide).The purpose of this study was to compare clinical, functional, and radiological outcomes at 6-week, 12-week, and 6-month follow-up between groups. Results demonstrated significantly... Read More »

Synopsis: 99 patients with a partial-thickness rotator cuff tear or rotator cuff tendinopathy were randomized to injection therapy with either a platelet rich plasma injection or corticosteroid injection.Patients were assessed for outcome on a visual analog scale for pain, the Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index, the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score, and incidence of patients who progressed to operative treatment. Results demonstrated significantly... Read More »

Synopsis: This meta-analysis identified 18 randomized prospective published studies which had a total of 27,807 patients (44,684 knees).From these studies, 16,419 simultaneous bilateral total knee replacements, 10,930 unilateral total knee replacements, and 458 staged bilateral total knee replacements (that had a minimum of 3 months between operations) were identified. Results from the... Read More »

Synopsis: 120 patients requiring ambulatory knee surgery were randomly assigned to receive auricular acupuncture or an invasive needle control procedure.Patients were instructed to take ibuprofen postoperatively only if required (aiming to achieve a pain intensity of <40mm on a 100mm visual analogue scale). Results demonstrated that... Read More »

Synopsis: 10 randomised control trials were identified from the literature that compared the use of operative and nonoperative treatment for acute ruptures of the Achilles tendon.894 patients were identified from these studies.Meta-analysis revealed that patients who underwent operative treatment were less likely to have a re-rupture (RR 0.44, p=0.002); however, these patients were more likely to suffer other complications. Functional analysis was... Read More »

Synopsis: 67 patients with an isolated zone-II flexor tendon injury were randomised to undergo treatment using the Teno Fix tendon repair device or a four stranded cruciate suture repair.Clinical and functional outcomes were examined.The results indicated that the Teno Fix device is safe and efficacious in treating tendon injuries if the tendon is of sufficient size and exposure. This intervention also... Read More »
