  • Surgeries Before College Athletics May Result In More Injuries During College Play

    Athletes who’ve had lower extremity surgeries before going on to play in college, might be at a higher risk for another surgery independent of gender and sport, say researchers presenting their work today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL. “This is the first study to look at […]

  • Shoulder dominance has no effect on function, quality of life after proximal humerus fracture

    Recently published data indicated there was no significant difference with regard to shoulder dominance in the functional outcome and quality of life perception observed in proximal humeral fractures. Researchers retrospectively studied 179 patients with proximal humeral fractures (PHFs). Fractures were divided into two groups based on whether they occurred in the dominant or nondominant arm. […]

  • Treatment of shoulder instability helps return collegiate athletes to playing field

    Athletes who suffer a shoulder instability injury may return to play more successfully after being treated arthroscopically compared to nonoperative treatment, say researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Annual Meeting. “Our research highlights that collegiate collision athletes with in-season shoulder instability injuries are more likely to return to […]

  • Greater strength, endurance found in quadriceps after PCL tear vs ACL tear

    Compared with ACL tears, the quadriceps muscle of the injured limb had greater strength and endurance after PCL tears, according to study results. Researchers compared quadriceps and hamstring muscle strength and endurance between 20 prospectively enrolled patients with isolated PCL tears and a retrospective, matched control group of 20 patients with isolated ACL tears. Using […]

  • Girls suffer more overuse injuries in teen sports

    A new study performed by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center shows that when it comes to overuse injuries in high school sports, girls are at a much higher risk than boys. Overuse injuries include stress fractures, tendonitis and joint pain, and occur when athletes are required to perform the same motion […]

  • Hemiarthroplasty, TSA offer lasting pain relief, improved range of motion

    Both hemiarthroplasty and total shoulder arthroplasty offered lasting pain relief, and range of motion was improved at the long-term follow-up; however, unsatisfactory Neer ratings were high, according to study results. Seventy-eight Neer hemiarthroplasties (HAs) and 36 Neer total shoulder arthroplasties (TSAs) were performed by a single surgeon between Jan. 1, 1976, and Dec. 31, 1985, […]

  • 3D Imaging and Templating May Improve Glenoid Positoning in Anatomic TSA

    All patients had postoperative, artifact-reduction 3D CT scans to evaluate glenoid position relative to the preoperative plan. No patients in this study were lost to follow up. The authors found that 3D imaging is a superior to traditional 2D imaging for templating in that it yields superior glenoid implant positioning when performing anatomic total shoulder […]

  • Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty for the Massive Rotator Cuff Tear

    Orthopaedic surgeons have become increasingly interested in the use of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty to manage massive rotator cuff tears. This has been due to the success we have had with the procedure as the rate of complications decreased, thanks to the significant knowledge we have gained over the course of the past 10 years […]

  • Make no bones about it: The female athlete triad can lead to problems with bone health

    Participation in sports by women and girls has increased from 310,000 individuals in 1971 to 3.37 million in 2010. At the same time, sports-related injuries among female athletes have skyrocketed. According to a new study in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS), women with symptoms known as the “female athlete triad” […]

  • Noncontact lower-extremity injury risks likely differ by sport, gender

    According to recently published data, differences were noted between sport and sex with regard to the risk for sustaining a noncontact lower-extremity injury. Researchers culled online data self-reported from high school soccer and basketball players of both sexes who sustained a noncontact lower-extremity injury between 2005 and 2012. All injuries were compared against the 6.4 […]
