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 »

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: 620 patients with an unstable ankle fracture were randomized to treatment with either close contact casting or internal fixation. The purpose of this study was to determine if functional outcome within the first 6 months after casting was equivalent to internal fixation. Secondary clinical and Read More »

Synopsis: 72 elderly patients with an unstable intertrochanteric fracture were randomized to receive traction table facilitated intramedullary nailing or manual traction intramedullary nailing. The purpose of this study was to compare the two methods of traction in terms of their surgical, functional, and radiographic outcome. Duration of preparation Read More »

Synopsis: Seven randomized controlled trials were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis to compare functional outcome measures between patient-specific instrumentation and conventional instrumentation in total knee arthroplasty. Pooled outcomes included the Knee Society Knee Score, Knee Society Functional Score, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score, the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), and visual analog scale (VAS) scores. Results demonstrated no Read More »

Synopsis: 212 patients scheduled for bilateral simultaneous total hip arthroplasty had their hips randomized to two different femoral stems; one hip was treated using an ultrashort femoral stem, while the other hip was treated with a conventional femoral stem. Patients were followed-up for a mean of 11.8 years. Significant differences that Read More »

Synopsis: Eight randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis comparing minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) and open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with plates or intramedullary nails in the treatment of mid-shaft or distal-third diaphyseal humerus fractures. Results demonstrated significant differences between methods in operative time, functional outcome, and incidence of nerve injury, all in favour of MIPO fixation. No significant differences Read More »
Level 2 Meta Analysis

Synopsis: 96 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to multimodal postoperative analgesia including either a continuous adductor canal block or continuous intraarticular infiltration with bupivacaine. The purpose of this study was to compare pain, morphine equivalents consumption, knee range of motion, and patient satisfaction between groups over the first two postoperative days. With the exceptions Read More »

Synopsis: 55 patients undergoing hammertoe surgery were randomized to undergo one of the following procedures: proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) resection or PIPJ fusion. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of the two techniques using the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society scale, the Foot Function Index, and the visual analogue scale pain scores up to one year postoperatively. Radiographic outcomes such Read More »
