Feasibility and Preliminary Efficacy of an Activity Tracker-driven Intervention for Promoting Physical Activity in People Living With Osteoarthritis of the Knee (TRACK-OA)
Physical activity is an essential first-line treatment for patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). However, a 2013 systematic review found only 13% met the activity recommendation of 150 minutes or more per week.
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a costly health condition affecting more than 10% of Canadian adults. Excessive and unbalanced loads passing through the knee joint have been implicated in the progression of OA. Typical conservative treatment of OA has focused on increasing daily activity, without consideration for the underlying joint loading.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tunnel Widening Comparing All-inside and Interference Screw Fixation Technique
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the incidence and degree of bone tunnel widening between two groups who have undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstructive surgery. The two groups have undergone different graft fixation methods: an interference screw/suspensory button fixation hybrid technique, and an all-inside suspensory method fixation. Tunnels are created at the time of surgery for graft placement and fixation, but have been known to enlarge post-operatively. Little has been studied on the relatively new all-inside technique.
