Both studies compare a treatment group (in which participants receive the treatment of interest) to a control group (in which participants do not receive the treatment). The current study had several strengths, the most notable being study design. Ballas R, Béguin L. Results of a stemless reverse shoulder prosthesis at more than 58 months mean without loosening. The mean age (and standard deviation) was 62.6 ± 9.3 years (62.1 ± 9.6 years in the stemmed cohort and 63.1 ± 9.0 years in the stemless cohort). Epub 2016 Aug 18. Epub 2014 Jul 11. During the preoperative templating, it must be confirmed that the humeral neck is of sufficient diameter to implant at least the smallest stemless humeral component and that the humeral neck cortex is intact. 24. J Shoulder Elbow Surg. In the stemless cohort, a guide pin was placed in the center of the humeral neck cut followed by a central surface reamer and broach. Patients presenting with symptoms of chronic steroid use, defined as use of oral steroids for a chronic condition for 12 months prior to and including the date of surgery (inhaled and topical steroid use is allowed). Women with We performed a prospective, multicenter, single-blinded RCT comparing stemless and short-stemmed implants in patients managed with aTSA. Following their success, many “stemless” implants have been designed with canal-sparing stems that only engage the humeral metaphysis but still allow for standard humeral anatomic neck cuts, facilitating exposure of the glenoid. The inclusion and exclusion criteria are shown in Table I.

Radiographs were assessed for fractures, dislocation/subluxation, component complications, and signs of component loosening. Observational studies are ones where researchers observe the effect of a risk factor, diagnostic test, treatment or other intervention without trying to change who is or isn’t exposed to it. Range-of-motion measurements and American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES), Single Assessment Numeric Evaluation (SANE), and Constant scores were obtained at multiple time points. The use of the Oxford hip and knee scores. 2017 Feb;26(2):225-32. For the ASES score, a 9.5-point margin of noninferiority was used as studies have reported that the minimum clinically important difference (MCID) of the ASES score ranges from 9 to 21 points29,30 and because, for many patient-reported outcome measures, the MCID is approximately half the standard deviation of change31,32, which has been reported to be 19 points for ASES scores33. 2001 Mar;83(2):213-21.

Study protocol for a randomized controlled trial and a prospective cohort. Epub 2018 Jan 24. Representative anteroposterior postoperative radiograph of the stemless implant, made 28 months postoperatively. The primary outcome measures used for noninferiority analysis were the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score at the 2-year follow-up time point, device-related complications (unanticipated adverse device events [UADEs], fracture, dislocation/subluxation, glenoid perforation, dissociation of the device, or revision/removal of any component), and radiographic signs of loosening. Similarities Papers: Randomized Control Trials and Other Prospective Studies I Share Timing and Management of Surgical Site Infections in Patients with Open Fracture Wounds: A X Cohort Secondary Analysis Third, given the low rates of device-related complications and component loosening in the present study, the 2-year follow-up rates of 87% and 90% may have introduced error; if even only a few of the patients who were lost to follow-up had device-related complications or component loosening, it could have had a substantial impact on the results. Razmjou H, Holtby R, Christakis M, Axelrod T, Richards R. Impact of prosthetic design on clinical and radiologic outcomes of total shoulder arthroplasty: a prospective study.

You can design a retrospective cohort study to estimate a benefit but not to determine efficacy of two treatments. J Bone Joint Surg Am. Of the 265 shoulders that received the allocated intervention, 176 (66%) were in male patients and 89 (34%) were in female patients. A randomized controlled trial (or randomized control trial; RCT) is a type of scientific (often medical) experiment that aims to reduce certain sources of bias when testing the effectiveness of new treatments; this is accomplished by randomly allocating subjects to two or more groups, treating them differently, and then comparing them with respect to a measured response. 22. In the stemmed cohort, the reasons for failure included revision for infection (2 shoulders), revision to reverse TSA for postoperative subscapularis tears (2 shoulders), traumatic dislocation treated with closed reduction (1 shoulder), humeral fracture noted intraoperatively during stem impaction (1 shoulder), and radiographic findings (including 2 humeral fractures and 1 case of anterior subluxation, all of which were treated nonoperatively with satisfactory outcomes). This is a prospective cohort study nested within a randomized, placebo-controlled trial with concealment of allocation and blinding throughout intervention and analysis. Jost PW, Dines JS, Griffith MH, Angel M, Altchek DW, Dines DM. In a cluster randomised controlled trial, people are randomised in groups (clusters) rather than individually. Brunner et al., in a prospective multicenter study of 233 patients who underwent stemless aTSA, reported a mean relative Constant score of 78.9% (89% for patients with primary osteoarthritis) at an average of 23 months postoperatively22. If randomization is not ethical or possible, a cohort study is your second best option. However, only one randomized controlled trial has been carried out to compare bariatric surgery with conventional treatment in adolescents, resulting in − 12.7 versus − 1.3 BMI points after 2 years for intervention and control group respectively . The mean age of the patients (and standard deviation) was 62.6 ± 9.3 years, and 99% of the shoulders had a primary diagnosis of osteoarthritis. Figs. Open label means that investigators and participants in a randomised controlled trial are aware of what treatment is being given and received (the study isn't blinded). A recommended rehabilitation protocol from Brigham and Women’s Hospital was provided to all sites27. Randomised trials were required to be of at least two weeks’ duration, and prospective cohort studies were required to be of at least one year’s duration. This is because randomization eliminates bias and produces comparable groups. 2011;6(4):275-81. Here’s a funny example from a TED Talk to illustrate the importance of using a control group: I’ll show you an example of a bad idea:[Shows the audience a piece of plastic with a Radio Shack antenna attached to it]. Patients with pain and/or loss of function in the shoulder for whom other treatment modalities have been unsuccessful. We evaluated the association comprehensively and quantitatively. I am George Choueiry, PharmD, MPH, my objective is to help you analyze data and interpret study results without assuming a formal background in either math or statistics. In the stemmed cohort, the humeral canal was reamed and broached in standard fashion. The multicenter nature of the study was another strength. In this type of study, the investigator can establish a temporal relationship between an exposure and an outcome, or follow the natural development of a condition over time. So as a rule of thumb:An RCT is used to evaluate a treatment or prevention measure and a cohort is used to evaluate an exposure or the natural cause of a disease. 2014 Apr;96-B(4):526-9.

Epub 2016 Jul 8. Patients with subscapularis incompetence. AbstractObjective: To compare the efficacy and safety of intravenous Levetiracetam and Phenobarbitone in the treatment of neonatal seizures. To address this limitation, primary end points were chosen such that surgeon bias should have played little role: ASES scores are determined on the basis of a patient questionnaire, device failure modes were independent of the surgeon, and an independent radiographic reviewer assessed the radiographs. And then we compare the outcome in each group in order to determine if the new treatment is better than the placebo. Beck S, Beck V, Wegner A, Dudda M, Patsalis T, Jäger M. Long-term survivorship of stemless anatomical shoulder replacement. All implants were manufactured by Zimmer Biomet. 9. A prospective cohort study will be carried out on new patients who will use this treatment for some time, while a retrospective cohort study will be carried out on patients who used the old treatment. In the stemless cohort, the median normalized Constant score increased from 45.0% (IQR, 34.0-57.0%) to 104.5% (IQR, 94.0-111.0%) and the mean score increased from 46.3% ± 17.1% to 101.5% ± 16.7%. : “Clinical and radiographic outcomes of the Simpliciti canal-sparing shoulder arthroplasty system. Uschok S, Magosch P, Moe M, Lichtenberg S, Habermeyer P. Is the stemless humeral head replacement clinically and radiographically a secure equivalent to standard stem humeral head replacement in the long-term follow-up? J Shoulder Elbow Surg. Short-term clinical outcome of an anatomic short-stem humeral component in total shoulder arthroplasty. 3-A through 4-B) (see Appendix). In short, If you want to prove a causal relationship between a treatment and an outcome, use a randomized controlled trial. These short-term results are promising given the potential benefits of stemless designs over traditional, stemmed humeral components.

Study Design Study protocol for a randomized controlled trial and a prospective cohort. First, follow-up was only 2 years. A cohort will typically study an exposure to a certain factor rather than a treatment. 2011 Oct;7(3):213-7. Gallacher S, Williams HLM, King A, Kitson J, Smith CD, Thomas WJ. The primary diagnosis was osteoarthritis for 99% of the shoulders. Noninferiority sample size calculations, performed with use of nQuery Advisor 7.0 software (Statsols) with a 1:1 ratio of investigational to control subjects to obtain 90% power while accounting for attrition, resulted in a sample size of 264 subjects. All primary outcomes showed noninferiority of the stemless implant, and no secondary outcomes differed significantly between stemless and stemmed cohorts within the 2-year follow-up period. Patients known to be pregnant or planning to get pregnant, prisoners, and/or alcohol or drug abusers. 2008 Mar 15;59(3):391-8. Collin P, Matsukawa T, Boileau P, Brunner U, Walch G.

Levy O, Copeland SA. Here the researcher does not control who gets the treatment and who doesn’t. Compared to prospective cohort studies they tend to be less costly and shorter in duration. Patients presenting with malunion or nonunion of the tuberosities of the proximal part of the humerus. The humeral neck was cut in either 30° of retroversion or the patient’s native retroversion according to surgeon preference. Churchill RS, Chuinard C, Wiater JM, Friedman R, Freehill M, Jacobson S, Spencer E Jr, Holloway GB, Wittstein J, Lassiter T, Smith M, Blaine T, Nicholson GP. This single-blinded, multicenter RCT demonstrated that the studied stemless shoulder implant was noninferior to the studied stemmed shoulder implant at the time of short-term follow-up after aTSA for the treatment of primary osteoarthritis.
