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: 62 patients with a rotator cuff tear were randomized to either augmented open repair with a porcine small intestine submucosa (SIS) graft or non-augmented open repair. The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate if the SIS graft significantly reduced the incidence of retear over the first year of follow-up. Results demonstrated a Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: Seven randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis evaluating the efficacy of corticosteroid injections in the treatment of enthesopathy of the extensor carpi radialis brevis origin. Included RCTs featured local anesthetic or placebo saline injections as a control. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »
Author verified Level 1 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 97 patients scheduled to undergo arthroscopic subacromial decompression or arthroscopic acromioclavicular joint resection were randomly allocated to receive a 40 mg dose of dexamethasone, 8 mg dose of dexamethasone, or placebo. Doses were administered intravenously. The aim of Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: Three randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with level II evidence were included in this meta-analysis of patients with articular surface partial-thickness rotator cuff tears. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the transtendon repair technique compared to completion of the tear followed by subsequent repair. Constant scores were Read More »
Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 92 patients scheduled for outpatient arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were randomized to be managed with either a single-shot interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB) or continuous interscalene block for 72 hours postoperatively. The purpose of this study was to evaluate if the continuous ISB group demonstrated significantly better analgesia compared to the single-shot group over the first 3 postoperative days. The results demonstrated Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 11 randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis investigating the short-term efficacy of a suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) for the management of chronic shoulder pain. Comparative treatments from identified studies included intra-articular corticosteroids, physical therapy, and placebo. Pain reduction and Read More »
Level 1 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 27 randomized controlled trials (RCT) were included in this bayesian network meta-analysis to provide a comprehensive comparison of injection therapies for lateral epicondylitis. A total of 13 therapies were identified from the literature. The results from Read More »
Level 1 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 30 patients with adhesive capsulitis were randomized in this pilot trial to undergo sessions of physiotherapist-directed stretching exercises with or without the addition of joint mobilization techniques. The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of joint mobilization techniques led to a significantly greater improvement in patient-reported function, disability, and pain, as well as shoulder range of motion. Outcomes were assessed Read More »
