Most anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in high-risk sports such as basketball, football, lacrosse, soccer, and volleyball occur by noncontact mechanisms (landing, deceleration, or lateral pivoting. Noncontact ACL injuries often occur in female athletes by a common 3-part mechanism: dynamic lower extremity valgus loading combined with an extended knee on a single leg.
BACKGROUND: Amid evidence that the number of ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) reconstructions performed annually is on the rise, there continues to be significant variation among surgeons in the management of UCL injuries. The purpose of this paper was to survey the members of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) to assess current trends related to the comprehensive treatment of athletes presenting with UCL injury.
METHODS: An online survey was distributed to the active members of the ASES. The survey was composed of 3 sections assessing the demographics of the survey-takers, presenting 7 distinct fictional clinical case scenarios of athletes with UCL injury, and posing a series of more general questions about operative and nonoperative management of UCL injuries.
RESULTS: There were 159 ASES members who responded to the survey (24% of the active membership); 65 respondents (40.9%) reported >15 years of clinical experience. Of the 7 case scenarios presented, a consensus was reached to indicate the patient for surgery in 4 cases. In all 7 cases, when operative management was the preferred option, a consensus was reached to perform UCL reconstruction. The preferred method of UCL reconstruction among respondents was the docking technique (66.0%); 36.3% of respondents used platelet-rich plasma in their treatment of UCL injuries.
CONCLUSION: The survey presented here shows that an overall experienced and well-trained cohort of surgeons tended to agree and often reached consensus opinions on how to approach UCL injury. Professional athletes and those with complete tears were indicated for surgery by consensus, whereas opinion was more divided on how to treat partial tears or nonprofessionals.
Multi-ligament knee injury (MLKI) associated with knee dislocation can result in vascular injury. The purpose of this study was to compare knee function after MLKI between patients with a vascular injury requiring popliteal artery bypass grafting and patients without vascular involvement. Additionally, factors associated with poor knee function in patients who had MLKI with vascular injury were evaluated.This ...

Bone stress injuries (BSIs) are a common overuse injury in athletes; site of injury has been shown to relate to underlying bone health in female athletes. Hypothesis/Purpose: This case series characterizes the association of type of sports participation and anatomic site of BSIs with low bone mineral density (BMD), defined as BMD Z-score <-1.0.
