What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

1. An evaluation of the effectiveness of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on cervical spondylosis

An evaluation of the effectiveness of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on cervical spondylosis Objective: To investigate the clinical efficacy of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on patients with cervical spondylosis. Patients and methods: Sixty patients with cervical spondylosis were grouped using computer-generated random numbers. Group A (n=30) received acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles combined with traction. Group B (n=30) received (...) , the NDI and PSQI scores of group A were significantly lower than those in group B (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupuncture using seven acupoint-penetrating needles combined with traction was more effective, reduced neck pain, and improved sleep quality in patients with cervical spondylosis compared to acupuncture of non-relevant acupuncture points.

4. Abnormal central motor conduction at the upper but not lower limbs correlates with severe cervical spondylosis: discussion of an unexpected observation (PubMed)

Abnormal central motor conduction at the upper but not lower limbs correlates with severe cervical spondylosis: discussion of an unexpected observation A novel pattern of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) abnormalities in cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) comprising abnormal central motor conduction time (CMCT) to the upper limbs and normal CMCT to the lower limbs was observed. CSM was more severe radiologically and tended to be more severe clinically when this pattern (...) was encountered.To further characterize this observation, 414 consecutive TMS evaluations of cervical spondylosis were reviewed. Those cases in which (a) CMCT was abnormal at the upper and (b) normal at the lower limbs and (c) a cervical spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was available (ULabnormal group) were included for further analysis. Cases where CMCT was abnormal at the lower limbs only (LLabnormal) were used for comparison. MRI-measured sagittal and parasagittal diameters of the spinal canal at all

5. Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion versus cervical arthroplasty for the management of cervical spondylosis: a meta-analysis. (PubMed)

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion versus cervical arthroplasty for the management of cervical spondylosis: a meta-analysis. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and cervical arthroplasty for patients with cervical spondylosis.PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library were used to search for relevant articles published prior to April 2016 to identify studies comparing ACDF and cervical arthroplasty involving patients (...) with cervical spondylosis. Relative risks (RR) and mean differences (MD) were used to measure the efficacy and safety of ACDF and cervical arthroplasty using the random effects model.The meta-analysis of 17 studies involved 3122 patients diagnosed with cervical spondylosis. Patients undergoing ACDF showed lower overall success rate (RR 0.84; 95 % CI 0.77-0.92; P < 0.001), higher VAS score (MD 0.36; 95 % CI 0.08-0.64; P = 0.011), and shorter mean surgical duration (MD -1.62; 95 % CI -2.80 to -0.44; P = 0.007

6. Techniques of lumbar-sacral spine fusion in spondylosis: systematic literature review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials (PubMed)

Techniques of lumbar-sacral spine fusion in spondylosis: systematic literature review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials Spine fusions can be performed through different techniques and are used to treat a number of vertebral pathologies. However, there seems to be no consensus regarding which technique of fusion is best suited to treat each distinct spinal disease or group of diseases.To study the effectiveness and complications of the different techniques used for spinal fusion (...) in patients with lumbar spondylosis.Systematic literature review and meta-analysis.Randomized clinical studies comparing the most commonly performed surgical techniques for spine fusion in lumbar-sacral spondylosis, as well as those reporting patient outcome were selected.Identify which technique, if any, presents the best clinical, functional, and radiographic outcome.Systematic literature review and meta-analysis based on scientific articles published and indexed to the following databases: PubMed (1966

7. Enhanced external counterpulsation and traction therapy ameliorates rotational vertebral artery flow insufficiency resulting from cervical spondylosis (PubMed)

Enhanced external counterpulsation and traction therapy ameliorates rotational vertebral artery flow insufficiency resulting from cervical spondylosis Clinical trial of patients with rotational vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) resulting from cervical spondylosis.To investigate the effectiveness of enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) and traction therapy for these patients.EECP would reduce arterial stiffness and vascular resistance, and increase regional blood flow of vertebral (...) arteries, thus may ameliorate symptoms in these patients.One hundred sixty-three patients who were clinically suspected rotational VBI caused by cervical spondylosis were enrolled in this study. They were randomly allocated into 3 groups: EECP + traction, EECP, and traction group. All patients and 50 healthy volunteers received transcranial color Doppler examination of the vertebral artery and basilar artery in both a neutral cervical spine position and a rotational position.Within 3 days after

10. Surgery for degenerative lumbar spondylosis. (PubMed)

Surgery for degenerative lumbar spondylosis. This section is under preparation and will be included in the next issueDegenerative conditions affecting the lumbar spine are variously described as lumbar spondylosis or degenerative disc disease (which we regarded as one entity) and are associated with back pain, instability, spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis. The objective of this review was to assess the effects of surgical interventions for the treatment of degenerative lumbar (...) for degenerative lumbar spondylosis were identified. There were many serious weaknesses of trial design, including poor methods of randomisation, lack of blinding and lack of independent assessment of outcome which at times gave considerable potential for bias. Most of the published results were reporting on technical surgical outcomes with some crude ratings of clinical outcome, but few patient-centred outcomes of pain, disability or capacity for work. There was a particular lack of long-term outcomes
