Five randomized, placebo-controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis investigating the efficacy of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in accelerating fracture healing. The primary outcome was time to radiographic healing while the incidence of various adverse events was a secondary endpoint. Meta-analysis demonstrated a significantly lower time to radiographic healing in LIPUS-treat...
