Synopsis: 56 patients with hand osteoarthritis were randomized to either low dose radiation therapy or sham intervention.Protocols were administered over 6 sessions for the duration of 2 weeks, with follow-up performed at 1, 2, and 3 months after treatment.The primary outcomes of OMERACT-OARSI response rate at 3 months demonstrated no significant difference between the LDRT group and the sham group. In addition, no... Read More »

Synopsis: 61 patients with Kellgren-Lawrence grade II-III knee osteoarthritis were randomized to treatment with either a single intraarticular injection of bone morrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSC) or oral acetaminophen 500mg every 8 hours for 6 months.Patients were assessed for outcome on a visual analog scale for pain and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC).Patients were assessed 1 week, 1 month and 6 month follow-up. Results demonstrated significantly... Read More »

Synopsis: 39 patients with distal radius fractures undergoing open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with a volar locking plate were randomized to receive 2 weeks of post-operative immobilization with a plaster splint or no immobilization.The primary outcome of interest was pain as measured on a Visual Analog Scale.Secondary outcomes included tramadol (opioid) use, DASH score, range of motion (wrist flexion-extension; forearm rotation), patient satisfaction, wrist edema and incidence of complications.Follow up was performed up to 6 months. The results from... Read More »

Synopsis: 652 male footballers from 2nd or 3rd tier Norwegian teams were randomized to receive or not receive the Copenhagen adductor strengthening program in addition to regular pre-season and regular season training.The primary outcome of interest was the prevalence of groin injury.The secondary outcome of interest was the prevalence of substantial groin injury.Intervention was performed during pre-season 2-3 times per week, and during the regular season once per week.Follow up was performed weekly for the duration of the 28 week season.The results from this study revealed significantly lower odds of groin injury in the adductor strengthening group compared to the control group. There was, however,... Read More »

Synopsis: 102 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome were randomized to receive either an ultrasound-guided or landmark-based corticosteroid injection.Outcomes of interest included the Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BCTQ) Symptom and Function scores, grip strength, rate of surgical treatment following injection, and adverse events.Follow up was performed at 4, 12 and 24 weeks.The results of the study revealed a favourable BCTQ symptom score at 4 weeks in the ultrasound-guided group compared to the landmark-based group.Furthermore, a higher proportion of patients in the landmark-based group displayed adverse events compared to the ultrasound-guided group. Otherwise, there were... Read More »

Synopsis: 80 patients with a displaced distal radius fracture were randomized to primary treatment through either palmar plate fixation or cast immobilization.Patients were assessed over 2-year follow-up, which included patient-reported disability (Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand [DASH]), wrist range of motion, grip strength, adverse events, and cases of secondary surgery.A total of 18/42 patients assigned to cast immobilization demonstrated loss of fracture reduction; 16 of these patients underwent secondary palmar plating.At 2 years, DASH score was significantly lower in the palmar plate group compared to the cast immobilization group.In subgroup analysis, the significant difference between groups when considering patients <65 years of age, but not in patients 65 years of age or older. Significant differences between... Read More »
