Synopsis: 8 ACE Reports (all randomized controlled trials) from the OrthoEvidence database were included in this review/meta-analysis examining the effect of arthroscopic surgery and physical therapy in the treatment of degenerative tears of the meniscus and knee osteoarthritis. The purpose of this review was to determine if any differences in outcome were demonstrated between arthroscopy followed by physical therapy versus physical therapy alone, regarding pain, function, satisfaction, adverse events, or osteoarthritis progression. Pain results were Read More »
ACE Review
Synopsis: 8 ACE Reports (7 randomized controlled trials and 1 systematic review and meta-analysis, n=694) from the OrthoEvidence database assessing the effectiveness of corticosteroid injections in comparison to control injections (either saline or local anesthesia) for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis were included in this review. The purpose of this review was to determine the impact of corticosteroid injections on pain and physical function in comparison to these control treatments. As such, information Read More »

Synopsis: Six ACE Reports were identified from the OrthoEvidence database which compared intra-articular injection(s) of hyaluronic acid to corticosteroid in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. All of the included studies were randomized controlled trials which reported pain and/or functional outcomes within 6 months of intervention. Pooled analysis of Read More »
ACE Review
Synopsis: Seven ACE Reports of randomized controlled trials were identified from the OrthoEvidence database that evaluated the use of PRP and blood product injections compared to corticosteroids injections for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis to determine the efficacy of PRP in this patient population. Evaluated outcomes included visual analog scale (VAS) for pain, Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) scores, the Patient-Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation (PRTEE) questionnaire, Upper Extremity Functional Scale (UEFS) for upper extremity disorders, the Liverpool Elbow function score, grip strength, and tendon thickness. Results from statistical Read More »

ACE Review
Synopsis: 13 ACE reports (4 reviews/ meta-analyses, 9 RCTs) were included from the OrthoEvidence database that compared operative versus nonoperative or operative versus operative treatments for displaced midshaft clavicle fractures. The findings of this review demonstrated that surgical procedures led to a lower rate of nonunion and malunion with better functional outcome when compared to nonoperative treatment. Comparisons of operative Read More »
