In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss 2 recent JBJS and OE articles that caught their eye. The first part of the discussion focuses on a large RCT evaluating the effect of supplemental perioperative oxygen on SSI among adults with lower-extremity fractures, and the second part focuses on a systematic review on the use of medical ozone versus hyaluronic acid for knee OA.
