Synopsis: 60 patients with an isolated, full-thickness supraspinatus tear were randomized to either receive two postoperative ultrasound-guided injections of platelet-rich plasma or to no adjunct postoperative intervention.Patients were evaluated over a mean of 3.5 years for MRI (Sugaya classification) and clinical outcomes (QuickDASH, Oxford Shoulder Score, and Constant Score).At a mean of 3.5 years, there were no significant differences in clinical scores between groups, with the exception of a greater score on the abduction subscale of the Constant score in the PRP group. MRI outcomes were... Read More »

Synopsis: A total of 78 patients were included in this randomized trial comparing an opioid-sparing and opioid-based pain protocol for pain management after total shoulder arthroplasty.Outcomes of interest included pain scores, opioid consumption, patient satisfaction, range of motion, patient-reported functional outcomes, complications, readmission and reoperation.Results revealed significantly lower opioid consumption up to 12 weeks post-operation, and higher patient satisfaction with pain management up to 6 weeks post-operation, in the opioid-sparing group. No differences in... Read More »

Synopsis: 86 patients randomized to receive arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with acromioplasty (n=25/41 completed follow up) or without acromioplasty (n=31/45 completed follow up) were re-assessed from a multicentered, randomized controlled trial.Outcomes of interest included the Western Ontario Rotator Cuff score (WORC) and incidence of re-operation/revision.Mean follow up was 11 years post-operation. No significant differences... Read More »

Synopsis: 60 patients were included in the interim analysis of a randomized trial comparing telerehabilitation and in-person rehabilitation.Outcomes of interest included the International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores, measured at 3, 6 and 12 months post-operation. Results revealed no... Read More »

Synopsis: One hundred and two patients undergoing hip arthroscopy were randomized to receive a transmuscular quadratus lumborum block (TQLB, n=51) with pericapsular injection or pericapsular injection alone (n=51).The primary outcomes of interest was the numerical rating scale (NRS).Secondary outcomes of interest included opioid utilization in the PACU, PACU recovery time, quadriceps strength and adverse events.There was no significant difference in initial PACU pain scores between groups.Similarly, PACU opioid consumption, total time spent in the PACU and quadriceps strength was similar between groups.No differences in adverse events were noted.

Synopsis: 97 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty were randomized to receive an opioid-free pain management protocol (n=47) or a standard, opioid-based pain management protocol (n=50).The primary outcome of interest was Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) pain scores at 24 hours or discharge.Secondary outcomes of interest included satisfaction with pain control, complications, and the Hip disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Jr Score (HOOS Jr).Median follow up was 2 months (IQR 1, 11).Pain scores were not significantly different between the two groups at 24 hours.Satisfaction with pain control, HOOS Jr scores, anti-emetic use, and the rate of falls were similar between groups.Constipation occurred more frequently in the opioid-based group. 15% of patients...

Synopsis: Jumping athletes in sports, such as volleyball and basketball, are at risk of overuse injuries with a common injury being patellar tendinopathy.62 eligible jumping athletes with patellar tendinopathy for 3-12 months were randomized to receive either extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) or placebo, to determine the efficacy of EWST in the treatment of this injury. Pain and function... Read More »

Synopsis: 19 patients with acute, isolated ruptures of the anterior cruciate ligament were randomized to two different pre-operative training programs to assess their effect on post-operative strength and movement patterns.The first group received a perturbation training program in combination with strength training; the second group received just the strength training program. The results from... Read More »

Synopsis: 50 patients with osteoporosis were randomized to receive traditional physical therapy or sling exercise therapy twice a week for 3 months. The results of the study indicate that both physical therapy methods improve the quality of life of osteoporosis patients, but sling exercise therapy results in significantly better quality of life outcomes than traditional physical therapy.

Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: Six randomized controlled trials and two comparative studies (998 patients) were included in this meta-analysis to compare the clinical and radiological outcomes of dynamic and static external fixation for unstable distal radius fractures. There was a trend of obtaining better clinical results and range of motion (such as extension, supination, and pronation) in favour of the dynamic group; for radiological outcomes, a better result (in regards to radial length) was observed in the dynamic external fixation group.
