Randomized controlled studies have a high level of evidence. However, some patients are not treated in the manner to which they were randomized and actually switch to the alternative treatment (crossover). In such cases, "intent-to-treat" statistical methods require that such a switch be ignored, resulting in bias. Thus, the study conclusions could be wrong. This bias is a common problem in the knee meniscus literature.

INTRODUCTION: The use of the semitendinosus tendon alone for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction keeps the gracilis muscle intact and decreases anterior pain in comparison with the use of the patellar tendon. Recently, Lubowitz described a new all-inside technique with an ST4 tendon fixed with a cortical button in both femoral and tibial sides. We hypothesized that this type of graft with cortical button fixation provides well-controlled residual anterior tibial translation (<3mm)...

Variable reporting of relevant clinical outcomes results in reporting bias, making it difficult to compare and contrast the results of different studies and treatments. Cartilage researchers should use the metric reporting score to ensure that outcome is reported in a standard manner.

Systematic Reviews (SRs) are becoming an increasingly utilized resource for readers that aims to answer a specific question by critically analyzing multiple research studies or papers on a topic. Although an SR can be extremely helpful to find an answer to a question, it may also be scrutinized, as the methodology is often not robust enough to adequately determine the outcome. This editorial serves to highlight the benefits of an SR, the methodology of a high-caliber SR, and some common pitfalls that may reduce the impact of an SR...

The knee anterolateral ligament may be fiction, but we thought it fact. As true anatomic restoration of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) may not be possible today, we are open to the possibility that lateral augmentation of ACL reconstruction could be of benefit in some patients.

Statisticians are required to ensure that systematic reviews and meta-analyses are performed using proper methods. Forest plots contain substantial and important information and are visually compelling, but conclusions could be incorrect absent appropriate application of statistical methods.

Reported outcome of matrix-assisted cartilage treatment is 11% treatment failure at 5 years. On the other hand, the glass is more than half full, because 89% of patients do well at 5 years. Abrasion arthroplasty results in approximately 66% survivorship at 20 years; future cartilage restoration outcomes should prove more durable.

Sometimes systematic reviews seem overprevalent, and some systematic reviews can be "inconclusive," which does not improve clinical decision making. On the other hand, systematic reviews can make a positive impact on patient outcomes by summarizing clinically relevant literature for arthroscopic surgeons and related researchers.

Surgeons may tell patients that arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tear results in clear improvement in patient outcomes. However, a limitation of the medical literature is that pooled findings may not be generalizable to all patients.

Superior labrum from anterior to posterior (SLAP) lesions are a slap in the face to the revered trinity of history, physical examination, and imaging. SLAP lesions are difficult to diagnose, and arthroscopy is not only the gold standard, but the current method on which expert arthroscopic shoulder subspecialists rely.
