Effects of Taichi exercise on knee and ankle proprioception among individuals with knee osteoarthritis
Conclusion: The current review identified strong, high-quality evidence to recommend hip muscle strengthening in the conservative management of persons with knee OA. Further research is needed to establish the underlying mechanisms for the clinical benefits.
ConclusionThere was no difference in the risk of revision ACL reconstruction between the two femoral tunnel drilling techniques at short-term follow-up. We observed minor differences in patient-reported outcomes at 1-year follow-up favouring the anteromedial portal technique, which may not be clinically relevant. Surgeons can achieve good clinical outcomes with either drilling technique.Level of evidenceIII.

To assess the 24-month cost-effectiveness of supervised treatment compared to written advice in knee osteoarthritis (OA).
Meniscal tears are commonly observed on MRIs obtained in middle-aged and older adults, with some studies suggesting a 35% prevalence in the 50-and-older population (1). Not all tears are symptomatic, but patients with these tears often seek treatment when they experience pain, swelling, or interference with valued activities. Physical therapy (PT) and arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) are among the treatment options available to these patients, with clinical trials showing similar benefits in terms of pain and functional improvement for both (2).
Periarticular knee fractures present a significant challenge to minimize post-traumatic osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study is to compare the rates of conversion to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for different periarticular knee fractures, investigate the rate of knee injections as a more rapid assessment of knee symptoms and identify risk factors that lead to conversion to TKA following periarticular fractures.
This study assessed whether MBBF in the femoral neck (FN) is preserve d in the context of inhibited remodeling in subjects receiving denosumab.This open ‐label study enrolled postmenopausal women with osteoporosis who had received ≥2 doses of denosumab (60 mg subcutaneously Q6M) per standard of care and were planning elective total hip replacement (THR) owing to osteoarthritis of the hip. Transverse sections of the FN were obtained after THR and analyzed histomorphometrically. MBBF, based on fluorochrome labeling and presence of smooth cement lines, was evaluated in cancellous, endocortical, and periosteal envelopes o...
