Synopsis: 36 patients with symptomatic recurrence after partial meniscectomy were included in this pilot randomized controlled trial and parallel preference study. 21 patients were randomized to either meniscal allograft transplantation or a physiotherapy program, while 15 patients chose their group as part of a preference study. Baseline demographics and treatment outcomes were similar between the randomized and non-randomized cohorts, which allowed for the data to be pooled and analyzed together. Patients were followed Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 50 patients undergoing one- or two-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) were randomized to postoperative management with our without a rigid cervical collar for a period 6 weeks. Neck Disability Index (NDI), subsidence, and fusion outcomes were evaluated over a period of 24 months. There were no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 27 patients scheduled for ligament reconstruction and tendon interposition of the carpometacarpal joint were randomized to either mobilization after 2 weeks, or continued immobilization for 6 weeks to determine if early mobilization is safe and effective in this population. Patients were followed up at 6 and 12 weeks postoperatively for patient-reported function, pain, pinch and grip strength, and range of motion. No significant differences Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 89 patients who had undergone reverse total shoulder arthroplasty were included in this randomized clinical trial to compare immediate and delayed rehabilitation protocols postoperatively. Range of motion, American Shoulder & Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score, and adverse events were scheduled to be evaluated over a 12-month period. Patients in both Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 37 patients scheduled for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were randomized to either an active or sham transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device to be used for the first week postoperatively to determine its effect on postoperative pain. Patients were assessed for pain using a visual analog scale, and for the number of opioid analgesia pills taken (Percocet) over the first week after surgery. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 140 patients with shoulder impingement syndrome were randomized to acromioplasty followed by an exercise therapy program, or to an exercise therapy program alone. Patients were followed up for measures of patient-reported pain and disability over 11- to 13-year follow-up. Results demonstrated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 48 patients with calcific tendinitis of the rotator cuff were included in this randomized controlled trial to compared the clinical and radiographic outcomes of ultrasound-guided barbotage (needling and lavage) combined with an ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection in the subacromial bursa (SAI) to an ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection in the subacromial bursa alone. At 5 years, while both groups demonstrated significant improvements from baseline in clinical and resorption outcomes, there were no significant differences between groups. These results were Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 14 studies with a total of 1723 patients were included in this meta-analysis to evaluate the clinical efficacy of thoracic pedicle screw placement between intraoperative computer navigation and fluoroscopy-guided navigation in thoracic spine surgery. Pooled outcomes included the malposition rate, operative time, complication rate, pedicle insertion time, and intraoperative blood loss. Findings indicated significant Read More »
Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 181 patients with sub-acute or chronic neck pain were randomized to receive either manual therapy, according the Utrecht School guideline (MTU), or standard physiotherapy (PT). The purpose of this secondary analysis was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of MTU compared to PT. Cost differences were Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 100 patients with thoracolumbar vertebral fracture were randomized to either radiofrequency kyphoplasty or balloon kyphoplasty. The purpose of this study was to compare the rate of cement leakage between the two groups. Postoperative leakage observed Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 77 randomized controlled trials were identified for inclusion in this systematic review evaluating modalities for pain management following arthroscopic ACL reconstruction in an outpatient setting. Evidence evaluating regional nerve blocks, intra-articular (IA) injections, intravenous (IV) and intramuscular (IM) injections, multimodal analgesia, oral medications, cryotherapy compression, mobilization strategies, and intraoperative techniques for the management of pain was identified. The results of Read More »
Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: Nine randomized trials or quasi-randomized controlled trials containing 563 patients with primary patellar dislocations were included in this meta-analysis to compare the rate of recurrence between conservative and surgical management options. The rate of redislocation, subluxation, overall instability, and subsequent surgery were assessed, as well as pain and functional measures. The results from Read More »
