CPG Update

The latest clinical practice guideline (CPG), “The Treatment of Osteoarthritis of the Knee (OAK), Second Edition,” was approved in May and is available on the AAOS website. Articles on the guideline have appeared in the Journal of the AAOS (September), AAOS Now (June), and The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (Oct. 16). The OAK CPG has also been accepted by the national Guidelines Clearinghouse and the Guidelines International Network databases.

The AAOS Evidence-Based Medicine Unit has the following five CPGs in development:

ACL and Hip Fracture CPGs
The guideline work groups have held their final meetings. They have developed recommendations, assigned ratings for each recommendation based on the best available evidence, and written rationales. Solicitation for peer review has begun and input received will be reviewed by the work group.
