Developing a risk prediction model for the functional outcome after hip arthroscopy
Hip arthroscopic treatment is not equally beneficial for every patient undergoing this procedure. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to develop a clinical prediction model for functional outcome after su...
Today, the @US_FDA issued a draft guidance for device manufacturers of arthroscopy pump tubing sets intended for multiple patient use. The draft guidance includes recommendations to mitigate the risk of infection, outline device design considerations, &risk mitigation strategies pic.twitter.com/sQJtAHKidx
ConclusionThe findings of this study partly confirm the hypotheses that pain and functional impairments after TKA without patellar resurfacing are associated with patellar shape. No association was revealed between postoperative patellar orientation and function nor pain. Quantitative consideration of patellar congruency could therefore prevent pain and improve function after TKA without patellar resurfacing.Level of evidenceRetrospective study, Level III.
ConclusionsAthletes competing in the NBA combine who have undergone a partial meniscectomy perform as well as uninjured athletes in all NBA combine performance testing. Furthermore, as athletes are further out from surgery, they have an improvement in both standing and max vertical jump.
To evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes of arthroscopic debridement for capitellar osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) in adolescent baseball players.
To compare isometric hamstring strength deficits, knee laxity, functional outcomes, and patient reported outcomes between patients who underwent ACL reconstruction with doubled semitendinosus and gracilis tendon autograft (ST/G) versus quadrupled semitendinosus autograft (ST), at a minimum follow-up of 1 year post-operatively.
To investigate the influences of time from injury to surgery and meniscal injuries on knee rotational laxity in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-deficient knees using the electromagnetic system (EMS) retrospectively.
Purpose The aim of the present meta-analysis is to provide a direct comparison between MPFL reconstruction and the other medial patellofemoral soft tissue surgeries in the restoration of the medial patellar restraint after lateral patellar dislocations in the absence of untreated predisposing factors such as high grade trochlear dysplasia, knee malalignment, patella alta or high TT-TG distance.Methods PubMed, Cochrane-library, WebOfScience, and grey literature databases were searched to find all the relevant records.
Authors: Yeung M, Shin JJ, Lesniak BP, Lin A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare complication rates between arthroscopic versus open biceps tenodesis in the setting of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and to determine the effect of fellowship training on complication rates. METHODS: The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery database was used to identify cases of arthroscopic and open biceps tenodesis in the setting of rotator cuff repair between 2012 and 2016. Surgical, medical, and anesthetic complications, location, fellowship training, surgery year, and patient demographic data we...
CONCLUSION: A well-designed database and user-friendly interface have greater potential for research utility, clinical efficiency, and, thus, cost-effectiveness when compared with standard voice-dictated operative notes. Widespread utilization of such tools can accelerate the pace and improve the quality of orthopaedic clinical research. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level IV. PMID: 31977610 [PubMed - in process]
