Return to Play after Nonsurgical Treatment of Elbow Ulnar Collateral Ligament Injuries in Professional Baseball Players
Injury to the elbow ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) is relatively common in pitchers. In the 70's reconstructive surgery was developed as a viable option to a potentially career ending injury. Multiple studies have demonstrated return to play (RTP) rates of 74-83% after reconstruction. Studies of RTP after nonoperative treatment in throwing athlete
The purpose of this study was evaluate the incidence of thromboembolic events in patients undergoing arthroscopic surgery of the knee in surgery centers located at elevations near sea level and comparing those rates with the patients undergoing the same operations at surgery centers located in cities at high altitude.
Functionally limiting heterotopic ossification about the shoulder represents an uncommon clinical entity, which has been most commonly reported as a consequence of prolonged immobilization in intensive care unit patients. Severe cases may result in complete glenohumeral ankylosis, with resultant upper extremity motion through the scapulothoracic
The Cost-Effectiveness Of Arthroscopic Bankart Repair Versus Non-Operative Treatment For First-time, Traumatic, Anterior Shoulder Dislocations
Prior studies have demonstrated excellent results after acute arthroscopic stabilization of first-time, traumatic, anterior shoulder dislocations in young patients. However, this treatment has not been widely accepted as first line management of this injury.
