Synopsis: 59 patients scheduled for arthroscopic supraspinatus and/or infraspinatus repair were randomized to receive regional anesthesia via a landmark-guided suprascapular nerve block (SSB) or an ultrasound- and nerve stimulation-guided interscalene block (ISB). Patients were assessed for visual analog pain scores, analgesic consumption, and complications postoperatively. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »
RCT
Synopsis: 80 patients with moderate to severe acromioclavicular joint dislocation scheduled for coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction were randomized to either triple Endobutton fixation or double Endobutton fixation. The purpose of this study was to determine if triple Endobutton fixation was beneficial over double Endobutton fixation with respect to surgical outcomes, patient-reported functional outcomes, and radiographic outcomes over a minimum 12-month follow-up. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 76 patients scheduled for shoulder arthroplasty were randomized to postoperative analgesia with either a continuous or single-shot interscalene block. Patients were assessed for pain, opioid consumption, the length of stay, and the incidence of adverse events. In addition, patients Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 42 elderly patients with a comminuted, intraarticular fracture of the distal humerus were randomized to either total elbow arthroplasty or open reduction and internal fixation. Reported results included survivorship and incidence of revision. Intraoperatively, five cases Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 99 patients scheduled for total shoulder arthroplasty were randomized to postoperative analgesia with either local infiltration analgesia or a continuous interscalene block for 48 hours postoperatively. Patients were assessed for perioperative pain and opioid consumption, as well as functional outcome at 1-month follow-up. Within the recovery Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients scheduled for arthroscopy repair of a partial-thickness rotator cuff tear were randomized to either in situ repair, or completion of the tear followed by repair. Patients were followed for a minimum of 12 months postoperatively for clinical scores for pain and function, as well as MRI to assess tendon integrity and retear rate. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 100 patients scheduled for reverse total shoulder arthroplasty were randomized to receive a prosthesis with either a 135-degree neck-shaft angle or a 155-degree neck-shaft angle. Patients were assessed for clinical scores and incidence of complications over 1 year postoperatively. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 26 patients with chronic lateral epicondylitis were randomized to either surgical intervention with the Nirschl technique, or to a sham procedure involving only incision and exposure of the extensor carpi radialis brevis. Patients were followed up postoperatively for 1 year. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 92 patients with lateral epicondylitis for at least 6 months who were nonresponsive to previous conservative therapies were randomized to either an injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or operative treatment through open debridement/release. Patients were assessed using the Patient-Reported Tennis Elbow Evaluation (PRTEE) and the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) questionnaire over a 12-month period. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 140 patients with grade II shoulder impingement syndrome were randomized to either arthroscopic acromioplasty followed by a structured exercise therapy program or to a structured exercise therapy program alone. Patients underwent an MRI follow-up at 5 years to assess muscle volume change, the incidence of supraspinatus tendon rupture, and grade muscle fatty degeneration. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 89 patients who had undergone reverse total shoulder arthroplasty were included in this randomized clinical trial to compare immediate and delayed rehabilitation protocols postoperatively. Range of motion, American Shoulder & Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score, and adverse events were scheduled to be evaluated over a 12-month period. Patients in both Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 37 patients scheduled for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were randomized to either an active or sham transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device to be used for the first week postoperatively to determine its effect on postoperative pain. Patients were assessed for pain using a visual analog scale, and for the number of opioid analgesia pills taken (Percocet) over the first week after surgery. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »
