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 »
Level 2 RCT
3%
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 »
Level 1 Meta Analysis

Synopsis: 198 patients with an initial anterior shoulder dislocation were randomized to receive one of two immobilization treatments for a period of 3 weeks.One group had their arm immobilized in the conventional internal rotation position while the other group had their arm immobilized in the external rotation position.The primary outcomes examined were recurrence of dislocation or subluxation.Results indicated that external rotation immobilization at 10 degrees had a lower risk of recurrence compared to internal rotation immobilization.Patients under 30 years old also showed particularly more benefit.

Level 2 RCT
1%
Synopsis: 15 healthy subjects participated in three sessions which involved randomly receiving either the intervention, the placebo or the control, in order to examine the immediate hypoalgesic effects on pressure pain threshold (PPT) at the lateral epicondyle of the elbow.The intervention was a single cervical high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust manipulation, the placebo was a sham manipulation and the control intervention involved no manual contact by the therapist. Results demonstrated that... 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 »
Level 1 RCT

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 »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 104 patients with advanced unilateral degeneration of the hip undergoing unilateral primary hip replacement were randomized in this study to receive either total hip arthroplasty (THA) or surface replacement arthroplasty (SRA).Radiographs comparing the operated hip with the normal contralateral hip were taken pre and post-operatively.Results indicated that patients in the SRA group had a more precisely restored proximal femoral anatomy than those in the THA group. Significantly more SRA... Read More »
