Synopsis: Nine studies (6 randomized controlled trials and 3 prospective comparative studies) were selected to examine the effects of leukocyte-poor platelet rich plasma and leukocyte-rich platelet rich plasma in knee osteoarthritis treatment. Due to the presence of only one direct comparison between LP-PRP and LR-PRP at the time of the study, studies which compared either to hyaluronic or placebo were included, and network meta-analysis was undertaken. Primary outcome was Read More »
Author verified Level 2 Meta Analysis
6%
Synopsis: Twenty randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included in a meta-analysis and systematic review comparing pain, treatment-emergent adverse events, and function between Hylan G-F 20 injections and low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (LMWHA) injections for knee osteoarthritis. No significant differences between products were observed in pain overall or the incidence of treatment-emergent related adverse events. When subgrouped based Read More »
Level 1 Meta Analysis
6%
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: Ten randomized controlled trials (645 patients) were included in this meta-analysis to determine the effect of therapeutic ultrasound in the management of knee osteoarthritis when compared to sham or no-intervention. The pooled results of this meta-analysis indicated that therapeutic ultrasound significantly reduced pain and improved function compared to sham treatment. Additionally, few adverse Read More »
Level 1 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
3%
Synopsis: 100 patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to receive physical therapy with either an intra-articular (IA) corticosteroid injection of 1mL methylprednisolone (40mg DepoMedrol, Pfizer) dissolved in 4mL lidocaine (10mg/mL, SAD), or an IA placebo injection of 1mL isotonic saline with 4mL lidocaine (10mg/mL, SAD). The purpose of this study was to determine whether an IA corticosteroid injection in combination with physical therapy is able to improve ultrasound-assessed signs of inflammation such as synovial hypertrophy, Doppler activity, and Baker's cyst presence after 12 weeks of treatment. Findings indicated comparable Read More »
Author verified Level 1 RCT
3%
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
2%
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: 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 »
