Proper use of sound scientific methodology in clinical trials is paramount to the validity of the results and of particular relevance when new treatments are being implemented.



In this project we have performed extensive literature searches in the fields of cartilage treatment techniques and treatment of posterior cruciate ligament tears. All retrieved trials have been critically appraised using standardized methods in areas such as randomisation, blinding, use of indenpendent reviewer etc.
