Synopsis: 553 leisure-time runners were randomized to three groups that differed only in the heel-to-toe drop (10mm, 6mm, or 0mm) of their running shoes. The investigators measured the risk of injury over 6 months. Overall, there were Read More »
Author verified Level 1 RCT
Synopsis: 57 patients scheduled for double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction were randomized to tibial fixation with either the use of pure poly-L-lactic acid interference screws or screws containing beta (B)-tricalcium phosphate (TCP). Patients were assessed on CT at 12 months for tibial tunnel enlargement at four tunnel depths: at the joint line, mid-tunnel, mid-screw, and at the tunnel aperture. Both groups demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 77 patients scheduled for ACL reconstruction were randomized to postoperative analgesia with either an adductor canal block or a femoral nerve block. The purpose of this study was to compare analgesic efficacy and functional recovery between groups. Patients administered the Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 190 patients undergoing partial meniscectomy during which chondral lesions were identified were randomized to either debridement or no debridement of the chondral lesions. Patients were followed up for 12 months postoperatively for clinical scores related to pain, function, and quality of life. At 12 months, Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 75 athletes with a grade II strain of the hamstrings, quadriceps, or gastrocnemius muscles were randomized to a rehabilitation program with or without the addition of a platelet-rich plasma injection. The time to return to sport, pain intensity and rate of recurrence were assessed. Results demonstrated a Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 54 patients scheduled for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with a quadruple-stranded semitendinosus tendon autograft were randomized to have the graft augmented with platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) membranes, or to a control group with no PRFM augmentation. Patients were followed-up on standard and contrast-enhanced MRI over a 12-month period, graft signal intensity was used to measure graft healing, and cross-sectional area was used to measure graft thickness. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 36 patients with symptomatic recurrence after partial meniscectomy were included in this pilot randomized controlled trial and parallel preference study. 21 patients were randomized to either meniscal allograft transplantation or a physiotherapy program, while 15 patients chose their group as part of a preference study. Baseline demographics and treatment outcomes were similar between the randomized and non-randomized cohorts, which allowed for the data to be pooled and analyzed together. Patients were followed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 77 randomized controlled trials were identified for inclusion in this systematic review evaluating modalities for pain management following arthroscopic ACL reconstruction in an outpatient setting. Evidence evaluating regional nerve blocks, intra-articular (IA) injections, intravenous (IV) and intramuscular (IM) injections, multimodal analgesia, oral medications, cryotherapy compression, mobilization strategies, and intraoperative techniques for the management of pain was identified. The results of Read More »
Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: Nine randomized trials or quasi-randomized controlled trials containing 563 patients with primary patellar dislocations were included in this meta-analysis to compare the rate of recurrence between conservative and surgical management options. The rate of redislocation, subluxation, overall instability, and subsequent surgery were assessed, as well as pain and functional measures. The results from Read More »
Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 25 patients with septic knee arthritis were randomized to irrigation through arthroscopy or arthrotomy. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of each method in treating initial infection, as well as outcomes during a physical examination at 7, 14, 21, and 42 days after surgery. Despite two cases Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 68 patients scheduled for outpatient arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were randomized to be administered either combined single-shot femoral nerve and sciatic nerve blocks (combined ssFSNB), or single-shot femoral nerve block alone (ssFNB). The purpose of this study was to determine if the combined femoral-sciatic nerve block demonstrated significantly lower pain within the post-anaesthesia care unit. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 60 patients scheduled for arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were randomized to receive an injection of either hyaluronic acid or placebo on the first day following the procedure. The purpose of this study was to compare measures of pain, function, and health-related quality of life between groups over a 12-month follow-up to determine if the use of hyaluronic acid can provide benefits in this patient population. The results demonstrated Read More »
