BACKGROUND Although the onset mechanism of an olecranon stress fracture (OSF) due to a throwing disorder is believed to involve valgus extension overload, olecranon posteromedial impingement, or triceps traction force, this issue is still debated in the literature. PURPOSE To establish a classification system for the different types of OSFs to improve(More)
Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is one of the common neurovascular disorders of the upper extremities, and the compression or traction of the brachial plexus is the main pathology. We hypothesized that baseball players are more likely to be affected by TOS compared with other overhead-throwing athletes because of strenuous use of their throwing arm. The(More)

Quadrilateral space syndrome (QSS) is the term used to describe axillary nerve palsy due to compression of the axillary nerve and posterior circumflex artery in the quadrilateral space. The precise pathophysiology of QSS is still unclear; hence, a consensus of diagnosis and treatment for QSS has not yet been achieved. The authors present the case of a(More)
OBJECTIVES LIPUS has been reported to promote bone union in pseudoarthrosis and delayed fracture union as well as to have a beneficial effect in shortening the duration of bone healing in fresh fractures. The purpose of this study was to examine whether LIPUS has an accelerating effect on healing OCD. SUBJECTS AND METHODS From 2008 to 2012, cases with(More)
BACKGROUND Repetitive valgus stress applied during a throwing motion can lead to various elbow disturbances, including ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury. Subchondral bone density reportedly reflects the cumulative force on a joint surface under actual loading conditions. PURPOSE (1) To evaluate the distribution of subchondral bone density across the(More)
