Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis Who Receive Platelet-Rich Plasma or Bone-Marrow Aspirate Concentrate Injections Have Better Outcomes Than Patients Who Receive Hyaluronic Acid: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
To systematically review the literature in order to compare the efficacy and safety of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), and hyaluronic acid (HA) injections for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA).
Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to treat knee conditions, including cartilage injuries, meniscus tears, and ligament problems. Because it uses several small incisions rather than a large one, people tend to return to their activities more quickly and with less pain. But that's not true for everyone.
Patients younger than 65 years undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) have 99 percent implant survivorship at eight years and have low rates of revision and readmission, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held from March 7 to 11 in Las Vegas.
According to one study, iliotibial band syndrome is one of the most common injuries in runners presenting with lateral knee pain, with an incidence estimated between 5% and 14%
A sprained wrist is an injury that affects the ligaments, which are soft tissue structures connecting bone to bone. These injuries range in severity and often occur with trauma, such as a fall, or during sports activities. Mild wrist sprains usually heal within a few weeks, but severe injuries can require surgery.
Treatment of co-afflicted athletes with femoroacetabular impingement and osteitis pubis or core muscle injury has been a challenging dilemma. Recent developments in peripubic endoscopic surgery may provide a long-awaited solution.
The periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) has proven to be an effective strategy for correcting adult hip dysplasia. However, there are still unanswered questions with regard to its use for “borderline” acetabular dysplasia, a term used to describe a lateral center-edge angle (LCEA) of 18° to 25°.
Trochlea dysplasia, increased TT-TG distance and patella alta are risk factors for developing first-time and recurrent patella dislocation: a systematic review
The aim of the study was to perform a systematic review and best knowledge synthesis of the present literature concerning biomechanical risk factors for developing first-time and recurrent patella dislocation.
Researchers from Karolinska Institutet have compared high dose exercise therapy versus low dose in patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. The study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine show that both groups had similar results. However, high dose exercise therapy provided superior outcomes related to function in sports and recreation in the short term, with results subsiding after six months.
Hip dysplasia is a condition that occurs when the hip socket (acetabulum) is too shallow to fully support the ball of the hip joint, called the femoral head. This typically affects a developing fetus, a condition called congenital hip dysplasia or developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). However, symptoms can appear during adolescence or even in adulthood.
