Synopsis: 70 recreationally-active patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear were randomized to either immediate reconstruction (within 8 days) or delayed reconstruction (6-10 weeks after injury).Patients were assessed for total sick leave days over the first year after injury. The mean number... Read More »

Synopsis: 142 knees, in 84 patients, with moderate severity osteoarthritis were randomized to intraarticular injection of either platelet-rich plasma or hyaluronic acid.Patients were assessed over 12- and 24-week follow-up for results on the Knee Society Score and a visual analog scale for pain. While the HA... Read More »

Synopsis: 40 patients with rotator cuff tendinitis were randomized to subacromial injection of either platelet-rich plasma or triamicinolone acetonide.Patients were assessed for pain and functional score over a 12-month follow-up.Change in Constant score after 12 months was significantly greater in the PRP group compared to the steroid group. Both groups demonstrate... Read More »

Synopsis: 87 elderly (>70 years of age) patients with an unstable ankle fracture were randomized to treatment through either closed reduction and intramedullary nail fixation, or open reduction and internal fixation using a plate and screws.Patients were assessed for the incidence of complications, length of stay, postoperative mobility status, and functional outcome on the Olerud-Molander score at 1 year postoperatively.Results demonstrated a significantly lower incidence of complications and shorter length of hospital stay in the nail group compared to the ORIF group. Postoperative mobility status... Read More »

Synopsis: Eight randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis comparing the results of intra-articular steroid injection to either sham injection or no injection in the treatment of frozen shoulder.Results were pooled at 4-6 weeks, 12-16 weeks, and 24-26 weeks.Pain scores were significantly lower following IA steroid injection versus control at all three time intervals.Shoulder range of motion was also reported to be greater following IA steroid injection versus control. Results from clinical... Read More »

Synopsis: 40 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to either receive or not receive platelet-rich plasma application during surgery.Patients were assessed for hemoglobin and hematocrit levels over the first 48 hours after surgery, and functional and pain outcomes over the first 2 months after surgery.Results demonstrated no significant differences in Hb level, Hct level, knee range of motion, or scores on the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index between groups. Pain scores were... Read More »

Synopsis: Nineteen studies were included in this meta-analysis comparing outcomes following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction between four-stranded hamstring tendon autografts and patellar tendon autografts.No significant differences in re-rupture rate, functional scores, and knee laxity were observed. Analyses on anterior... Read More »

Synopsis: 126 patients with frozen shoulder were randomized to dual glenohumeral and subacromial injection of betamethasone once per week for 5 weeks, to glenohumeral injection alone once per week for 5 weeks, or to oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for 5 weeks.Patients were assessed for pain, function, and range of motion over the first 6 months post-treatment.Results demonstrated significantly lower pain in the injection group compared to the oral NSAIDs group. Function and range... Read More »

Synopsis: Eight randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis comparing the efficacy and safety of topical and intravenous tranexamic acid for use in total knee arthroplasty.Total blood loss, postoperative blood loss, hemoglobin (Hb) drop, transfusion rate, and the incidence of complications were pooled.No significant differences between groups were noted, with the exception of Hb drop at 24 hours. Despite the difference... Read More »

Synopsis: 34 patients with recurrent lateral patellar dislocation were randomized to undergo a modified Elmslie-Trillat procedure (tibial tubercle transfer) with or without the addition of medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction.Patients were assessed over 5 year follow-up for incidence of redislocation, functional failure requiring reoperation, functional scores, and quantitative CT parameters.Overall, only one case of redislocation was documented, occurring in the control group.Functional scores did not significant differ between groups over follow-up. On CT, changes... Read More »
