Treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus: a systematic review
TLDR
BMS was identified as an effective treatment strategy for OCD of the talus and because of the relatively high cost of ACI and the knee morbidity seen in OATS, it is concluded that BMS is the treatment of choice for primary osteochondral talar lesions. Expand
Systematic review of treatment strategies for osteochondral defects of the talar dome.
TLDR
It is concluded that NT and excision alone are not to be recommended in treating talar OCD, and ECD seems to be the most effective treatment strategy for osteochondral defect of the talus. Expand
Arthroscopic treatment for osteochondral defects of the talus. Results at follow-up at 2 to 11 years.
TLDR
Patients who had been treated for an osteochondral defect of the talus by arthroscopic curettage and drilling were reviewed, finding good or excellent results, as assessed by the Ogilvie-Harris score, were found in 86% in the primary group and in 75%" in the revision group. Expand
Treatment Strategies in Osteochondral Defects of the Talar Dome: a Systematic Review
TLDR
It is concluded that NT and excision alone are not to be recommended in treating talar OCD and both EC and ECD have been shown to lead to a high percentage good/excellent results. Expand
Surgical versus conservative treatment for acute injuries of the lateral ligament complex of the ankle in adults.
TLDR
There was some limited evidence from a few trials for a higher incidence of ankle stiffness, impaired ankle mobility and complications in the surgical treatment group, but the functional implications of this are uncertain. Expand
Different functional treatment strategies for acute lateral ankle ligament injuries in adults.
TLDR
An elastic bandage has fewer complications than taping but appears to be associated with a slower return to work and sport, and more reported instability than a semi-rigid ankle support, in adults with acute lateral ankle ligament ruptures. Expand
Immobilisation and functional treatment for acute lateral ankle ligament injuries in adults.
TLDR
Functional treatment appears to be the favourable strategy for treating acute ankle sprains when compared with immobilisation, and these results should be interpreted with caution, as most of the differences are not significant after exclusion of the low quality trials. Expand
What is the evidence for rest, ice, compression, and elevation therapy in the treatment of ankle sprains in adults?
TLDR
Insufficient evidence is available from randomized controlled trials to determine the relative effectiveness of RICE therapy for acute ankle sprains in adults, and treatment decisions must be made on an individual basis. Expand
Functional treatments for acute ruptures of the lateral ankle ligament
TLDR
It is concluded that an elastic bandage is a less effective functional treatment for acute ruptures of the lateral ankle ligament in adults. Expand
Manipulation of the wrist for management of lateral epicondylitis: a randomized pilot study.
TLDR
Manipulation of the wrist appeared to be more effective than ultrasound, friction massage, and muscle stretching and strengthening exercises for the management of lateral epicondylitis when there was a short-term follow-up. Expand
