Tranexamic Acid Administration in Arthroscopic Surgery Is a Safe Adjunct to Decrease Postoperative Pain and Swelling: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysisTo systematically screen the literature in an effort to critically examine the effect of tranexamic acid (TXA) in patients undergoing arthroscopic surgery, specifically pertaining to pain, blood loss, length of surgery, and both major and minor complications.
Shoulder Latarjet Surgery Shows Wide Variation in Reported Indications, Techniques, Perioperative Treatment, and Definition of Outcomes, Complications, and Failure: A Systematic ReviewTo systematically review and compare the surgical indications, technique, perioperative treatment, outcomes measures, and how recurrence of instability was reported and defined after coracoid transfer procedures.
Better Outcomes but No Difference in Joint Space Narrowing at Five Years Among Patients Without Unstable Chondral Lesions Versus Those With Unstable Chondral Lesions (Left In Situ) at the Time of Arthroscopic Partial MeniscectomyTo compare 5-year outcomes among patients with and without unstable chondral lesions undergoing arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM).
Hip Arthroscopy Volume and Reoperations in a Large Cross-Sectional Population: High Rate of Subsequent Revision Hip Arthroscopy in Young Patients and Total Hip Arthroplasty in Older PatientsTo report contemporary trends in hip arthroscopy case volume in the United States using a large cross-sectional cohort with accurate laterality tracking for assessment of revision surgery and rates of conversion to total hip arthroplasty (THA).
Complications of Superior Capsule Reconstruction for the Treatment of Functionally Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears: A Systematic ReviewThe purpose of this systematic review is to characterize the complications associated with superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) for the treatment of functionally irreparable rotator cuff tears (FIRCTs).
Multimodal Nonopioid Pain Protocol Provides Equivalent Pain Versus Opioid Control Following Meniscus Surgery: A Prospective Randomized Controlled TrialTo assess the effectiveness of a nonopioid pain regimen in controlling postoperative pain as compared with a traditional opioid pain control following primary meniscectomy or meniscal repair.
Long Head of Biceps Tenotomy Is Not Inferior to Suprapectoral Tenodesis in Arthroscopic Repair of Nontraumatic Rotator Cuff Tears: A Multicenter, Non-inferiority, Randomized, Controlled Clinical TrialTo determine if long head of the biceps (LHB) tenotomy is not inferior to suprapectoral LHB tenodesis when performed in conjunction with arthroscopic repair of small- to medium-sized nontraumatic rotator cuff tears.
Undergoing an Arthroscopic Procedure Prior to Shoulder Arthroplasty is Associated With Greater Risk of Prosthetic Joint InfectionTo utilize a national all-payer claims dataset to understand whether a history of a prior shoulder arthroscopy is associated with adverse outcomes or complications after the index shoulder arthroplasty itself.
Superior Postoperative Stability and Functional Outcomes With Anteromedial Versus Transtibial Technique of Single-Bundle Autologous Hamstring Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Meta-analysis of Prospective Randomized Controlled TrialsThe aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the postoperative stability and functional outcomes of anteromedial (AM)– and transtibial (TT)–based single-bundle hamstring anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction techniques.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Versus Hyaluronic Acid in the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis: A Meta-analysis of 26 Randomized Controlled TrialsTo compare the effectiveness and safety of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid (HA) in patients with adult knee osteoarthritis (KOA) and to explore the most effective and safe protocol by using a meta-analysis method.
Meniscus Repair Does Not Result in an Inferior Short-term Outcome Compared With Meniscus Resection: An Analysis of 5,378 Patients With Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament ReconstructionTo compare the preoperative and 1- and 2-year postoperative Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) subscale scores between isolated anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) and ACLR with additional medial meniscus (MM) and/or lateral meniscus (LM) resection or repair.
Injections Prior to Rotator Cuff Repair Are Associated With Increased Rotator Cuff Revision RatesTo determine whether shoulder injections prior to rotator cuff repair (RCR) are associated with deleterious surgical outcomes.
How Satisfied Are Patients with Arthroscopic Bankart Repair? A 2-Year Follow-up on Quality-of-Life OutcomeTo report general life and health satisfaction after arthroscopic Bankart repair in patients with post-traumatic recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability and to investigate postoperative time lost to return to work at 2-year follow-up.
Opioid Consumption After Rotator Cuff RepairRising perioperative opioid use in the United States is of increasing concern. The purposes of this study were (1) to define opioid consumption after rotator cuff repair (RCR) in the United States and (2) to evaluate patient factors that may be associated with prolonged opioid use after arthroscopic RCR.
