People who engage in high-intensity interval training are at greater risk for injury, especially in the knees and shoulders, a Rutgers study found.
For patients undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, previous steroid injections into the shoulder don't increase the risk of surgical-site infection—unless the injection is administered within one month before surgery, reports a study in the April 17, 2019 issue of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, an estimated 2 million people in the United States will visit a doctor for a rotator cuff problem each year.
Ulnar collateral ligament insufficiency affects cubital tunnel syndrome during throwing motion: a cadaveric biomechanical study
In throwing athletes, cubital tunnel syndrome and insufficiency of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) are common pathologic processes of the elbow. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of UCL tears on ulnar nerve elongation in the simulated throwing position.
Outcomes and the speed of recovery were similar between patients who underwent rotator cuff repair with bicep tenodesis and patients who underwent only rotator cuff repair, according to a presentation at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting.
