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: 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: 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 »

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: 56 patients with pes anserinus tendino-bursitis were randomized to two treatment groups: one group received 3 weeks of kinesiotaping, while the other received 10 days of naproxen 250mg three times daily plus daily physical therapy sessions. The purpose of this study was to compare pain, swelling, and adverse events from pre- to post-treatment. Results demonstrated a Read More »
Level 2 RCT

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: 100 patients with an ankle sprain presenting to the emergency department within 24 hours of injury were randomized to be administered either topical ketoprofen gel or a placebo gel. The purpose of this study was to compare pain reduction between groups within the first 30 minutes after application of the gel. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »

Synopsis: Seven randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis evaluating the efficacy of corticosteroid injections in the treatment of enthesopathy of the extensor carpi radialis brevis origin. Included RCTs featured local anesthetic or placebo saline injections as a control. Results demonstrated significantly Read More »

Synopsis: 129 patients with an anterior cruciate ligament tear scheduled for anatomic single-bundle reconstruction were randomized to receive either a six-stranded semitendinosus and gracilis (hamstring) allograft (6-strand HT) or bone-patellar-tendon-bone (BPTB) allograft. The purpose of this study was to determine if the 6-strand HT group demonstrated significantly better rotational and anterior knee stability compared to the BPTB group over a 4-year follow-up. Results over the Read More »
