Incidence and Trends of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in the United States

The incidence of ACLR increased between 1994 and 2006, particularly in females as well as those younger than 20 years and those 40 years or older, and the most common concomitant procedures were partial meniscectomy and chondroplasty.

Operative Management of Ulnar Collateral Ligament Insufficiency in Adolescent Athletes

The docking technique results in favorable clinical outcomes in adolescent athletes with UCL insufficiency at a minimum of 2 years postoperatively, and adolescent gymnasts and javelin throwers may be at an increased risk for transient paresthesia of the ulnar nerve caused by increased stress on the medial elbow.

Development of a National Cruciate Ligament Surgery Registry

A national population-based cruciate ligament registry has been developed, implemented, and maintained in Norway and it is expected that inadequate procedures and devices can be identified, as well as prognostic factors associated with good and poor outcomes, at least for the most frequent categories.

Operative Treatment of Ulnar Collateral Ligament Injuries of the Elbow in Athletes

Reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament, with transposition and stabilization of the Ulnar nerve and appropriate rehabilitation, was found to be effective in correcting medial instability of the elbow and allowed most athletes to return to previous levels of play in less than 1 year.

Public Perceptions of Tommy John Surgery

This study is the first of its kind to investigate public perception of Tommy John surgery and has identified an alarming percent of players, coaches, and parents with misperceptions.

Reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament in athletes.

Reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament using a free tendon graft was performed on sixteen athletes who participated in sports that involved throwing, and all had valgus instability of the elbow.

Rate of Return to Pitching and Performance After Tommy John Surgery in Major League Baseball Pitchers

There is a high rate of RTP in professional baseball after UCL reconstruction, and patients who underwent UCL reconstructions had better results in multiple performance measures when compared with demographic-matched controls.

Is Tommy John Surgery Performed More Frequently in Major League Baseball Pitchers From Warm Weather Areas?

MLB pitchers who played high school baseball in warm weather climates have undergone medial UCL reconstruction more frequently and earlier in their MLB careers than pitchers who play in cold weather areas.

Ulnar Collateral Ligament Reconstruction in High School Baseball Players

The success rate of ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction in high school baseball players is nearly equal to that in more mature groups of throwers, and special attention should be paid to elite-level teenage pitchers who throw with high velocity.
