Success at the High School, Collegiate and Professional Levels Not Necessarily Related to Early Sports Specialization, Say Researchers

Specializing in one sport early in a child’s athletic career is often touted as a way to gain that elusive college scholarship or even go on to the pros. However, researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada today say “not so fast.”

Patients with Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears May Have Surgical Option, New Research Shows

The arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) surgical technique can offer patients with irreparable rotator cuff repairs the opportunity to return to sports and jobs that require heavy physical work, as presented in research today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Patients Taking Opioids Prior to ACL Surgery More Likely to Be on Pain Medications Longer

More than 130,000 Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgeries take place each year with the majority of patients not requiring pain medication after three months post-operatively. However, researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting today in Toronto, Ontario, Canada found that those patients who were filling opioid prescriptions prior to surgery were 10 times more likely to be filling prescriptions five months after surgery.

Assessing Concussion Symptom Presentation May Provide Insight into Rise in Rates

How physicians and athletic trainers assess symptoms may give insight into why concussion rates are on the rise, say researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting today in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Different Surgical Approaches Offer Patients Improved Quality of Life after ACL Reconstruction

The most common surgical techniques used to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) offer patients improved quality of life five years after injury, according to research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The study followed patients for five years following surgery.

Outreach Athletic Trainers Have a Positive Economic Impact on Sports Coverage for Health Systems and Patients, Say Researchers

The cost-effectiveness of certified outreach athletic trainers (ATC) as a type of physician extender in an orthopaedic provider and/or hospital system setting has many benefits, both financially and with patient care, say researchers presenting their work today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Patients Can Expect to Stay Active, Enjoy High Quality of Life 10 Years After ACL Surgery

In the first prospective ACL reconstruction cohort with over 80% follow-up at 10 years, researchers from the Multicenter Orthopaedics Outcome Network (MOON) demonstrated that patients could perform sports-related functions and maintain a high knee-related quality of life a decade after surgery, though activity levels decline over time. The study, presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, received the O’Donoghue Sports Injury Research Award.

Scientists “Myth Bust” Human VS Animal Competition

On Sunday, Phelps will go head-to-head against a very unlikely competitor: a great white shark. Yes, you read that correctly – an actual shark. While the logistics of this race alone leave me with many, many questions, I’m most curious about whether this would even be a fair fight from the get-go. Brian Sennett, MD, chief of Sports Medicine at Penn Medicine, and Peter Dodson, BSc, MSc, PhD, a professor of Anatomy at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine, detail the advantages and disadvantages of each competitor -- from the aerodynamics and muscle make up to the impact of oxygen intake and VO2 max to the buoyancy that comes with having lungs.

Researchers Say Young Patients Who Experience Patellar Dislocations May Be at Risk for Similar Injuries Later in Life

Young patients who suffer patellar dislocations are at a higher risk of recurring dislocations, especially long-term after their initial injury, according to research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Researchers received the Herodicus Award, presented to the best resident paper featured at the meeting, and determined by the Herodicus Society.
