Synopsis: 111 patients eligible for primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomly allocated to receive either a posterior stablized (PS) post/cam tibial insert or a more congruent cruciate-substituting (CS) insert. This study aimed to compare the clinical outcomes during the postoperative period and radiographic and functional outcomes at a minimum 2-year follow-up between the two devices. At 2-years the Read More »

Synopsis: Eleven randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis analyzing the efficacy of gabapentin and pregabalin for postoperative analgesia following total knee arthroplasty. The control groups used for comparison in the included studies received either placebo or no additional intervention. The results of Read More »
Level 1 Meta Analysis

Synopsis: 200 patients scheduled for unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomly allocated to 4 groups to determine if there is a difference in efficacy between different administration methods of TXA. In group 1, 500 mg TXA was administered intravenously. In group 2, Read More »

Synopsis: 34 patients undergoing revision total knee arthroplasty were randomized to either hybrid fixation, with cemented femoral components and cemented tibial baseplates with press-fit stems, or all-cement fixation. The purpose of this study was to compare three-dimensional component micromotion and functional outcome between groups over a 2-year follow-up. No significant differences Read More »

Synopsis: 83 patients with plantar fasciitis were randomized to one of the three following physiotherapy interventions for the purpose of comparing pain, disability, and balance outcomes after 8 weeks: (1) stretching and exercise of hip and foot muscles, (2) stretching and exercises of foot muscles only, and (3) stretching of foot muscles only. Outcomes of interest included a VAS scale for pain, the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS), the Star Excursion Balance test (SEBT). Results demonstrated that Read More »

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: 184 patients scheduled to undergo surgical treatment for closed fractures were randomized to receive tissue dissection performed with either one surgical scalpel or two. The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of two surgical blades (one for superficial incision and the another for deep tissue dissection) would result in a significantly decreased incidence of surgical site infection (SSI) when compared to a single-blade technique, after a 30-day observational period. Results demonstrated comparable Read More »

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 »

Synopsis: 49 patients over the age of 50 undergoing surgical treatment for chronic insertional Achilles tendinopathy were randomly assigned to receive Achilles debridement alone or in conjunction with a flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon transfer. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the addition of FHL tendon transfer to the conventional Achilles debridement procedure further reduced pain and improved function up to 1 year post-operative. Outcomes were assessed 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 »
