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: 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 »

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 »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 101 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty due to osteoarthritis were randomized to combined femoral and sciatic nerve block with or without the addition of local infiltration analgesia as part of the multimodal postoperative analgesia regimen. Patients were assessed for pain scores and rescue analgesia consumption over 72 hours postoperatively, as well for knee range of motion and Knee Society Score over a 6-month follow-up. With the exception 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: 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 »

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 »
