Review of orthopaedic services: Prepared for the Auditor General for Scotland. March 2010

Review of orthopaedic services: Prepared for the Auditor General for Scotland. March 2010. Website http://www.audit-scotland.gov.uk/media/article.php?id=128 "In recent years, the National Health Service (NHS) in Scotland has significantly reduced the length of time people are waiting to receive orthopaedic procedures such as hip replacements and knee operations. Over 95% of patients are now treated within 26 weeks of referral, compared to only 66% in 2003. But there is scope to make savings by working more efficiently. An Audit Scotland report, Review of orthopaedic services, says there is high demand for these services. Orthopaedic care is particularly important for older people, who have the highest rates of fractures and joint replacement."

Osteochondroma

 Osteochondromas are benign tumours of bone and cartilage. They frequently grow outwards from bone and can be palpated. They most commonly occur on the knee, proximal femur or the humerus. Although not always symptomatic they can impinge nerves and vessels. Any osteochondroma that continues to grow after skeletal maturity should be removed due to an increased risk of malignancy.

Treatment allocation in trials: cluster randomisation

Researchers investigated the effectiveness of neuromuscular training in reducing the rate of acute knee injuries in adolescent female football players. A cluster randomised controlled trial study design was used. The intervention was a 15 minute neuromuscular warm-up programme (targeting core stability, balance, and proper knee alignment) carried out twice a week throughout one season. A total of 230 football clubs were recruited from the female under 14 to under 18 series in eight regional districts of the Swedish Football Association, located in the middle and southern parts of Sweden. Clubs were randomised to the intervention or control using cluster allocation, stratified by regional district. In total, 121 clubs were allocated to the intervention group and 109 to the control group, and the clubs were followed for one season. The coaches of the clubs allocated to the control group were instructed to train and play as usual without any changes.1

A man with a mass in the thigh

A 54 year old man presented to his general practitioner because of a fullness in his left lateral thigh that he first noticed while playing golf, although it was not related to an identifiable injury. He had a history of hypertension and fibromyalgia and was taking atenolol, ramipril, pregabalin, and tramadol but was otherwise well. The GP thought that the swelling was caused by a muscular injury, but the patient re-presented four months later because the mass had grown from a small bump to a swelling of 8 cm in diameter. It was also beginning to cause some knee stiffness but no pain. On examination he had a large firm swelling in his lateral thigh. On this occasion his GP referred him on a two week wait to the regional plastic surgery department. An ultrasound scan showed a 6 × 8 cm intramuscular mass with cystic changes and patchy neovascularity, but no inguinal or pelvic lymphadenopathy. Ultrasonography was followed by magnetic resonance imaging, with and without gadolinium contrast (fig 1⇓).

Arthroscopy for degenerate meniscal tears of the knee

The NHS performs around 150 000 arthroscopic knee operations a year, with more than half involving resection of the meniscus. Therefore, close scrutiny of this intervention in the United Kingdom is entirely appropriate, particularly in the context of the ongoing drive towards providing evidence based and value based care.
