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: 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 »
Level 2 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 25 patients with septic knee arthritis were randomized to irrigation through arthroscopy or arthrotomy. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of each method in treating initial infection, as well as outcomes during a physical examination at 7, 14, 21, and 42 days after surgery. Despite two cases Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 68 patients scheduled for outpatient arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were randomized to be administered either combined single-shot femoral nerve and sciatic nerve blocks (combined ssFSNB), or single-shot femoral nerve block alone (ssFNB). The purpose of this study was to determine if the combined femoral-sciatic nerve block demonstrated significantly lower pain within the post-anaesthesia care unit. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 60 patients scheduled for arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were randomized to receive an injection of either hyaluronic acid or placebo on the first day following the procedure. The purpose of this study was to compare measures of pain, function, and health-related quality of life between groups over a 12-month follow-up to determine if the use of hyaluronic acid can provide benefits in this patient population. The results demonstrated Read More »
RCT
Synopsis: 5 randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis to compare arthroscopic partial meniscectomy to conservative treatment for the management of nonobstructive meniscal tears. Data from included studies was pooled for physical function outcomes, pain, and activity level over multiple time points up to 24-month follow-up. The results from Read More »
Author verified Level 1 Meta Analysis
Synopsis: 32 patients who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear were included in this trial and randomized to arthroscopic reconstruction or non-operative care. The objective of this study was to compare functional outcome and the effect of these treatment methods on the incidence and progression of knee osteoarthritis over a 10-year follow-up. The results of Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 84 patients undergoing arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were included in this trial to evaluate the effect of tourniquets in ACL reconstruction. Patients were randomized to undergo the procedure without a tourniquet or with a tourniquet inflated to 350mmHg. The outcomes of Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 129 patients with an anterior cruciate ligament tear scheduled for anatomic single-bundle reconstruction were randomized to receive either a six-stranded semitendinosus and gracilis (hamstring) allograft (6-strand HT) or bone-patellar-tendon-bone (BPTB) allograft. The purpose of this study was to determine if the 6-strand HT group demonstrated significantly better rotational and anterior knee stability compared to the BPTB group over a 4-year follow-up. Results over the Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: 80 patients with a unilateral tear of the ACL ligament were included in this study and randomized to either single- or double-bundle anatomic ACL reconstruction with a 6- to 8-stranded hamstring autograft. The objective of this study was to determine if there were significant differences in patient-reported outcomes and knee laxity over a minimum of 7-year follow-up. There were no Read More »
Level 2 RCT
Synopsis: Ten studies, including nine randomized controlled trials and one prospective cohort study, were included in this meta-analysis to investigate the efficacy of injury prevention programs in adolescent team sports. Pooled results demonstrated a significant injury rate reduction with the use of injury prevention programs versus control interventions overall. Subgroup differences were Read More »
