The purpose of this study was to examine the interaction of a single dose of Toradol and head impact in an in vivo rat model for sport-related concussion using a validated rat concussion model. Thirty-five Sprague–Dawley rats were placed into one of four groups: (1) Control, (2) Impact Only, (3) Toradol Only, (4) Impact and Toradol. Animals in the impact… (More)
Background: Rotator cuff tendinopathy is a frequent cause of shoulder pain that can lead to decreased strength and range of motion. Failures after using the single-row technique of rotator cuff repair have led to the development of the double-row technique , which is said to allow for more anatomical restoration of the footprint.
BACKGROUND An increase in soccer-related injuries occurred in the United States between 2000 and 2012; however, most studies of soccer-related injuries have only examined the pediatric population and not adults. HYPOTHESIS The number of soccer injuries is increasing in both the pediatric and adult populations. There are differences in injury types and… (More)
The goal of this study was to evaluate contact area and surface pressure as a result of different suture patterns in the treatment of anterior shoulder instability caused by a Bankart lesion. Loads were applied through the humeral head to the glenoid surface in the intact shoulder and after simple suture labral repair (n=10) and vertical mattress labral… (More)
Degeneration and tearing of the long head of the biceps brachii tendon (LHBT) are common intra-articular findings, and surgical intervention including tenodesis or tenotomy is beneficial. A new arthroscopic shoulder technique may be performed through an anterior portal while one is viewing from a posterior portal: (1) Visualize the intra-articular biceps… (More)
BACKGROUND Concussions represent 8.9% to 13.2% of all high school athletic injuries. How these injuries are managed is currently unknown. HYPOTHESIS There are differences in concussion management and awareness among boys football, boys ice hockey, and boys and girls soccer. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive epidemiologic study. METHODS High school athletic… (More)
T he US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.6 to 3.8 million concussions occur during sport and recreational activity annually. 10 A concussion is a complex pathophysiologic process affecting the brain induced by traumatic biomechanical forces. 14 Each year, millions of adolescents participate in high school sports, over the course… (More)
BACKGROUND The posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) is at risk for injury during one-incision distal biceps tendon repair using a cortical button. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the proximity of a cortical button to the PIN during one-incision repairs of the distal biceps tendon using human cadaveric models. METHODS In ten cadaveric elbows the… (More)
