Debridement and hinged motion distraction is superior to debridement alone in patients with ankle osteoarthritis: a prospective randomized controlled trial

ConclusionsThe study demonstrated comparable postoperative functional outcome and quality of life. However, rate of postoperative revision surgery was substantially higher in ankle debridement alone group.Level of evidenceRandomized controlled study, Level I.

LascellesAbstractOsteoarthritis (OA) is a debilitating disease in dogs. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used to treat OA; however, many dogs do not obtain adequate pain relief with an NSAID alone. This pilot study evaluated the systemic anti-inflammatory and mobility enhancing effects of an eggshell membrane-based nutritional supplement in dogs with OA-associated pain and mobility impairment. Twenty-seven dogs with OA-associated pain were enrolled int...

The objective of this study was to look for compensatory foot and ankle behaviours during gait in paediatric patients with symptomatic ACL deficiency.HypothesisCompensation for ACL deficiency during gait occurs at the foot and ankle in children, because compensation at the hip and pelvis would require greater energy expenditure.Material and methodsWe included 47 patients, 33 males and 14 females, ranging in age from 9 to 17 years (mean, 14.1 years). The patients had a history of unilateral ACL injury documented by MRI and initially treated by immobilisation and physical therapy. They were allowed to walk with full weight-b...

However in most of these studies the control and test knees were present in different patients thus incorporating a large amount of bias in the results. Therefore, the present study was designed in which patients with bilateral osteoarthritis knee were incl...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewReview the effectiveness and safety of current treatment protocols for fluoroscopically guided genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation (RFA) used for recalcitrant knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis (OA).Recent FindingsRandomized controlled trials and cohort studies of fluoroscopically guided RFA of the genicular nerves demonstrate variability in responder rates from 59% at 3  months to as high as 74% at 6 month follow-up. Studies that investigated the prognostic value of genicular nerve blocks to select patients for RFA demonstrate no difference in outcomes with current treatment proto...

ConclusionShort-term cryotherapy was not superior to a sham intervention in terms of relieving pain or improving function and quality of life in people with knee OA. Although cryotherapy is considered to be a widely used resource in clinical practice, this study does not suggest that it has an important short-term effect, when compared with a sham control, as a non-pharmacological treatment for people with knee osteoarthritis.RegistrationNCT02725047.
