BACKGROUND Despite the recognized importance of proper 3-dimensional motion of the scapula in throwers, minimal research has quantified scapular position and orientation in throwing athletes. HYPOTHESIS Throwing athletes exhibit scapular position and orientation differences when compared to nonthrowing control subjects. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive(More)
BACKGROUND The Morel-Lavallee lesion is a closed degloving injury most commonly described in the region of the hip joint after blunt trauma. It also occurs in the knee as a result of shearing trauma during football and is a distinct lesion from prepatellar bursitis and quadriceps contusion. PURPOSE To review the authors' experience with Morel-Lavallee(More)
BACKGROUND Recent concussion management guidelines have suggested that athletes with mild (grade 1) concussions may be returned to play if asymptomatic for 15 minutes. The purpose of this study was to assess the utility of a current concussion management guideline in classifying and managing mild concussion. HYPOTHESIS High school athletes diagnosed with(More)
BACKGROUND In older cleft patients, alveolar bone grafting may be associated with poor wound healing, graft exposure, recurrent fistula, and failure of tooth eruption. A new procedure using a resorbable collagen matrix with bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 was compared with traditional iliac crest bone graft to close alveolar defects in older patients. (More)
BACKGROUND Alterations in glenohumeral range of motion, including increased posterior shoulder tightness and glenohumeral internal rotation deficit that exceeds the accompanying external rotation gain, are suggested contributors to throwing-related shoulder injuries such as pathologic internal impingement. Yet these contributors have not been identified in(More)
BACKGROUND There are few reports in the literature detailing arthroscopic treatment of unidirectional posterior shoulder instability. HYPOTHESIS Arthroscopic capsulolabral reconstruction is effective in restoring stability and function and alleviating pain in athletes with symptomatic unidirectional posterior instability. This population has significant(More)
BACKGROUND Varying concentrations of blood components in platelet-rich plasma preparations may contribute to the variable results seen in recently published clinical studies. The purposes of this investigation were (1) to quantify the level of platelets, growth factors, red blood cells, and white blood cells in so-called one-step (clinically used commercial(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case control group study. OBJECTIVES To compare scapular position and orientation between baseball players with and without pathologic internal impingement. BACKGROUND Scapular dysfunction has been implicated as a contributor to throwing-related pathologic internal impingement of the shoulder due to its role in increasing the contact(More)
BACKGROUND Beta-blockers are the mainstay therapy in patients with the congenital long-QT syndrome (LQTS) types 1 and 2. However, limited data exist regarding the efficacy and limitations of this form of medical management within high-risk subsets of these populations. METHODS AND RESULTS Multivariate analysis was carried out to identify age-related(More)
A comparative study between percutaneous repair and open surgical repair of acute spontaneous Achilles tendon ruptures in young athletic patients is presented. Twenty-seven patients with acute Achilles ruptures were evaluated objectively and with subjective questionnaires. Fifteen of the patients were treated by reconstruction with a gastrocsoleus fascial(More)
