BACKGROUND Injury to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) often results in valgus elbow instability requiring reconstruction. No standardized and validated outcome measure has compared outcomes between surgical techniques and institutions in the overhead throwing athlete. The aim of this study was to use the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic shoulder and elbow score (KJOC score) to report functional outcomes in overhead throwing athletes undergoing UCL reconstruction. We predict that the KJOC score… CONTINUE READING
