AIMS: Our purpose was to determine the quality of current randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in hand surgery using standardised metrics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Based on five-year mean impact factors, we selected the six journals that routinely publish studies of upper extremity surgery. Using a journal-specific search query, 62 RCTs met our inclusion criteria. Then three blinded reviewers used the Jadad and revised Coleman Methodology Score (RCMS) to assess the quality of the manuscripts...

BACKGROUND: Orthopedic and plastic surgery residents receive unique training yet often compete for similar hand surgery fellowships. This study compared didactic hand surgery training during orthopedic and plastic surgery residency. METHODS: The Plastic Surgery In-Service Training Exam and Orthopaedic In-Training Examination were analyzed for hand content for the years 2009 to 2013. Topics were categorized with the content outline for the Surgery of the Hand Examination...

INTRODUCTION: All individuals have a physiologic tremor that may become more pronounced in periods of stress, stimulant use, or caffeine. There are few publications measuring the effects of these factors on surgeons or trainees and no comprehensive reviews. We sought to review the representative literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An exhaustive literature search to identify journal articles evaluating factors that affect surgical tremor or dexterity was performed...

BACKGROUND: Much of the decision-making in orthopaedics rests on uncertain evidence. Uncertainty is therefore part of our normal daily practice, and yet physician uncertainty regarding treatment could diminish patients' health. It is not known if physician uncertainty is a function of the evidence alone or if other factors are involved. With added experience, uncertainty could be expected to diminish, but perhaps more influential are things like physician confidence, belief in the veracity of what is published, and even one's religious beliefs...

BACKGROUND: In high-income countries, 6% of all women will have sustained a fracture of the wrist (distal radius) by the age of 80 years and 9% by the age of 90 years. Advances in orthopaedic surgery have improved the outcome for patients: many such fractures can be treated in a plaster cast alone, but others require surgical fixation to hold the bone in place while they heal. The existing evidence suggests that modern locking-plate fixation provides improved functional outcomes, but costs more than traditional wire fixation...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) are frequent but unwanted complications for patients following anaesthesia and cardiac surgery, affecting at least a third of patients, despite pharmacological treatment. The primary aim of the proposed research is to test the efficacy of PC6 acupoint stimulation versus placebo for reducing PONV in cardiac surgery patients. In conjunction with this we aim to develop an understanding of intervention fidelity and factors that support, or impede, the use of PC6 acupoint stimulation, a knowledge translation approach...

PURPOSE: Research abstracts presented during the proceedings of an annual meeting are often cited and can influence clinical practice. Prior studies show that roughly 50% of abstracts at American Society for Surgery of the Hand meetings are eventually published. Yet, it is unknown how often the results or conclusions of published studies differ from the podium presentation. The objective of this study was to quantify the differences between abstracts presented during the annual meeting of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the resulting manuscripts...

PURPOSE: To create a current reading list of the hand surgery articles most commonly cited in the last 20-plus years. METHODS: Using the Web of Science Citation Index Search, we searched "hand" and "wrist" in the orthopedic, surgery, and sport sciences research areas. We then reviewed the articles and chose the 50 most commonly cited articles related to hand surgery. Articles were categorized as clinical or basic science. Clinical articles were subcategorized as either therapeutic, prognostic, diagnostic, or economic/decision analysis and assigned a level of evidence rating...

OBJECTIVE: An application was received to review the evidence on the 'The Da Vinci Surgical System' for the treatment of gynecologic malignancies (e.g. endometrial and cervical cancers). Limitations to the current standard of care include the lack of trained physicians on minimally invasive surgery and limited access to minimally invasive surgery for patients. The potential benefits of 'The Da Vinci Surgical System' include improved technical manipulation and physician uptake leading to increased surgeries, and treatment and management of these cancers...

BACKGROUND: Systematic reviews are fundamental decision-making tools for the assessment of the effectiveness of healthcare interventions and for determining future research fields. In the field of hand surgery, so far, there exists only a limited number of systematic reviews. According to the diversity and multitude of hand surgical topics, relevant fields for systematic reviews were identified by means of an expert ranking. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A catalogue of 24 topics was extracted from publications of representative hand surgical journals...

BACKGROUND: Statistical independence means that one observation is not affected by another; however, the principle of statistical independence is violated if left and right-side measures within a subject are considered to be independent, because they are usually correlated and can affect each other. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the violation of statistical independence in recent orthopaedic research papers and to demonstrate the effect of statistical analysis that considered the data dependency within a subject...

INTRODUCTION: Before the new temporary ice rink in Esbjerg was built, opponents feared that it would disproportionately increase the number of traumas needing medical care at the hospital. The reason for this concern was that it was built with ramps. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During the winter of 2004 an estimated 30,000 people visited the two ice rinks in Esbjerg. The temporary rink had ramps, whereas the permanent rink had no ramps. A total of 104 persons were injured and needed treatment at the emergency room of orthopaedic surgery...

This prospective study describes the use of a short hand cast, which leaves the finger metacarpophalangeal and wrist joint free, for angularly displaced little finger metacarpal shaft fractures which require reduction. Twenty-seven patients with a mean age of 25 (range, 16-39) years with little finger or combined ring and little finger displaced metacarpal shaft fractures were prospectively recruited. All were treated by closed fracture reduction and immobilization in the cast. Patients were followed up at 1 week, 4 weeks, and between 6 and 12 months...

The indices for ulnar translation described by Chamay et al. (1983, Annales de Chirurgie de la Main, Vol. 2, pp. 5-17), and Bouman et al. (1994, Journal of Hand Surgery Vol. 19B, pp. 325-329), and for carpal height described by Youm et al. (1978, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol. 40A, pp. 423-431) and Bouman et al. (1994) were compared in pre- and postoperative wrist X-rays of 91 patients with rheumatoid arthritis undergoing radiolunate arthrodesis. Both indices described by Bouman had a higher applicability and sensitivity than the Chamay and Youm indices and are recommended for use with the rheumatoid wrist...

P I Androsov
Professor Androsov's articles should be of considerable interest to American surgeons, representing as they do a new freedom in the exchange of ideas with the medical profession of the Soviet Union. In recent years no Russian surgeon has sought publication of original work in surgical journals of this country. Early last fall I visited Professor Androsov in Moscow at the Sklifosovsky Institute, a hospital made famous by the late Professor Yudin. I was impressed by the work that he and his associates were doing in peripheral vascular surgery and in the reconstruction of lye burns of the esophagus...
