Synopsis: 68 patients with an unstable syndesmosis injury following an external rotation ankle fracture with posterior malleolus involvement were randomized to the management of the syndesmotic injury with either anterior-inferior tibiofibular ligament repair and augmentation with anchor-anchor rope construct, or standard trans-syndesmosis screw fixation. The fracture in both groups was fixed with plates and screws. Patients were followed Read More »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 60 patients with a complete Achilles tendon rupture were randomized to either open repair with a Krackow stitch followed by standardized rehabilitation or nonoperative treatment with standardized rehabilitation alone. The purpose of this study was to compare results on the Leppilahti score, calf strength, health-related quality of life and re-rupture rate between groups over an 18-month follow-up. No significant differences Read More »

Synopsis: 50 patients with chronic ankle instability and previously failed conservative treatment were randomized to undergo a modified Brostrom procedure (anterior talofibular ligament repair) arthroscopically or via open surgery. The purpose of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes between groups over the first 12 months after surgery. Results demonstrated no Read More »

Synopsis: 18 randomized controlled trials (n=1407 patients, 1442 fractures) were included in this meta-analysis for the purpose of comparing percutaneous reduction and fixation with Kirschner Wires (PRFK) and open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) in the treatment of closed calcaneal fractures. Outcomes of interest included complications related to the surgical wound, postoperative function, and the quality of reduction. Results demonstrated that Read More »

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 »

Synopsis: 96 patients with a displaced, intraarticular calcaneal fracture were randomized to either a percutaneous reduction and cannulated screw fixation or a minimally invasive sinus tarsi approach for plate and screw fixation. The purpose of this study was to compare functional and radiological outcomes between the two treatment options over a 24-month follow-up. American Orthopaedic Foot Read More »

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 »

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 »

Synopsis: 250 patients with displaced proximal humerus fracture were randomized to surgical management, with either internal fixation or hemiarthroplasty, or conservative management with sling immobilization. The purpose of this study was to compare treatment methods based on outcome of the Oxford Shoulder Score, as well as the incidence of complications. Follow-up was conducted Read More »
