Clinical Trial Summary

Purpose: The investigators aimed to determine whether this treatment is effective on pain and function by applying mesotherapy treatment to patients followed up with gonarthrosis. Methods: This study is a prospective randomized controlled study. The research will be carried out between November 2021 and April 2022 in Pamukkale University Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) After the approval of the Pamukkale University Faculty of Medicine Ethics Committee, 38 patients diagnosed with gonarthrosis will be divided into 2 groups using a table of random numbers. The first group will be the group that only applied quadriceps strength exercise and Mesotherapy will be applied to the second group along with quadriceps strength exercise. The data will be analyzed with the SPSS package program. Continuous variables will be given as mean ± standard deviation and categorical variables as numbers and percentages. parametric test Test of Significance of Difference Between Two Means in comparison of independent group differences when assumptions are met; When parametric test assumptions are not met, the Mann-Whitney U test will be used to compare independent group differences. In addition, the relationships between continuous variables will be examined with Spearman or Pearson correlation analyzes and the differences between categorical variables will be examined with Chi-square analysis. Since there is no similar study conducted and there is no possibility to conduct a pilot study, assuming that a moderate effect size will be obtained as a result of the power analysis made in the direction of the hypothetical expectations, it was taken to obtain 80% power with 95% confidence, and it was calculated that at least 38 people should be included in the study.


Clinical Trial Description

Detailed Description: This study is a prospective randomized controlled study. The research will be carried out in Pamukkale University Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) After the approval of the Pamukkale University Faculty of Medicine Ethics Committee,38 participants will be admitted to Pamukkale University PMR clinic will be included in this study. Patients will be informed about the content, purpose, and application of the study and their written consent will be obtained. Treatment Protocol 38 patients diagnosed with gonarthrosis will be divided into 2 groups using random numbers table. The first group will be the group that only applied quadriceps strength exercise and Mesotherapy will be applied to the second group along with quadriceps strength exercise. Group 1: Exercise Group (Quadriceps Strength)10 repetition in three-set, 5 times a week for three weeks Group 2: Mesotherapy (MT) once a week for three weeks. Patients will receive 2 ml of 2% lidocaine, 2 ml of pentoxifylline will be used. Sterile and disposable (0.26mm × 4mm and 0.3mm × 13 mm, Terumo) will be used for mesotherapy. and injection techniques (IDP=2-4 MM) AND (IDS=1-2 MM) will be used. Statistics The data will be analyzed with the SPSS package program. Continuous variables will be given as mean ± standard deviation and categorical variables as numbers and percentages. parametric test Test of Significance of Difference Between Two Means in comparison of independent group differences when assumptions are met; When parametric test assumptions are not met, the Mann-Whitney U test will be used to compare independent group differences. In addition, the relationships between continuous variables will be examined with Spearman or Pearson correlation analyzes and the differences between categorical variables will be examined with Chi-square analysis. Since there is no similar study conducted and there is no possibility to conduct a pilot study, assuming that a moderate effect size will be obtained as a result of the power analysis made in the direction of the hypothetical expectations, it was taken to obtain 80% power with 95% confidence, and it was calculated that at least 38 people should be included in the study. ;
