Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo highlight 2 recent JBJS and OrthoEvidence articles that caught their eye: (1) a propensity-matched study focusing on complete and pending fractures in patients with long-bone metastases and (2) an Advanced Clinical Evidence report focusing on the WHiTE-5 trial comparing cemented vs. uncemented hemiarthroplasty for intracapsular hip fracture.

On-Field Management of Sports Injuries, with special guests Bradley Nelson and Moin Khan

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guests and sports medicine experts Bradley Nelson (Head of Athletic Medicine at the University of Minnesota) and Moin Khan (Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at McMaster University) in an informative discussion on the on-field management of sports injuries. What kind of preparation is ideal for those interested in pursuing a career that involves sports medicine coverage? What can be learned from mentors, including faculty and senior athletic trainers? What types of injuries and medical issues should one should expect to see? What pre-game preparation is needed in terms of communicating and interacting with trainers and EMS, reviewing the emergency action plan, and becoming familiar with the equipment, supports, and facilities that will available during a game? What risks, liabilities, and special considerations are potential areas of concern when on the sidelines, particularly when covering high school games involving minors? What options are available if you are the only person providing coverage?

Hot Topics: (1) The Importance of Blinded Assessment of Outcomes in Clinical trials (2) TXA in Hip Fractures

In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss 3 recent articles that caught their eye. The first part of the discussion focuses on the importance of blinded assessment of outcomes in clinical trials, and the second part focuses on the use of tranexamic acid in patients with hip fractures.   Links: Metcalfe A, Parsons H, Parsons N, Brown J, Fox J, Gemperlé Mannion E, Haque A, Hutchinson C, Kearney R, Khan I, Lawrence T, Mason J, Stallard N, Underwood M, Drew S; START:REACTS team.

Orthobiologics in Orthopaedics: Essential Questions

In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss a number of intriguing questions related to the use of orthobiologics in orthopaedics: How do we set standards for novel biologics? How do we decide what works and what doesn’t? What filter should be used to determine which studies get published? Ultimately, we need to know how these materials are prepared and what is actually in them before we can evaluate their effect on patients. Answering these questions is essential work in order for us to make advances in this field.
