In rats, diffuse brain damage can occur with no signs of 'concussion,' reports study in Neurosurgery (3/23/2014)

A standard experimental model of concussion in rats causes substantial brain damage -- but no behavioral changes comparable to those seen in patients with concussion, reports a study in the April issue of Neurosurgery, official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health. ...> Full Article


Shoulder revision repair surgery not as successful 2 years later, say researchers (3/22/2014)

Long-term outcomes of revision arthroscopic rotator cuff repair surgery is not as successful as in a first-time surgery, according to researchers from the Orthopaedic Research Institute in Sydney, Australia, who are presenting their work today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day. ...> Full Article


ACL tears are not the end for college football players (3/21/2014)

High-level college football players frequently return to the field after an ACL reconstruction, according to research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day. The study added to earlier research by exploring specific factors that affected return to play, including player standing on rosters and year in school. ...> Full Article


Socioeconomic factors may contribute to delay in pediatric ACL reconstructions (3/20/2014)

Research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day in New Orleans highlights evidence that insurance type, household income and age at injury are significant, independent predictors of the rate which Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgeries occurred in kids. Researchers also noted that a delay in pediatric ACL surgery of more than five months correlated with increased severity of other knee injuries in the future. ...> Full Article


Young athletes with knee pain may turn to meniscus transplant (3/19/2014)

Patients undergoing meniscal allograft transplantation surgery require an additional operation approximately 32 percent of the time, but overall see a 95 percent success rate after an average five-year follow-up, according to new research released today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's Specialty Day. ...> Full Article


Significant head, neck injury risk associated with extreme sports (3/18/2014)

A new study presented today at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons found that the thrill of extreme sports comes at a price: a higher risk for severe neck and head injuries. ...> Full Article


Universal neuromuscular training reduces ACL injury risk in young athletes (3/17/2014)

New research presented today at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons found that universal neuromuscular training for adolescent athletes -- which focuses on the optimal way to bend, jump, land and pivot the knee -- is an effective and inexpensive way to avoid ACL sprains and tears. ...> Full Article


No link between years of football play and cognitive function in adolescent athletes (3/16/2014)

A new study presented today at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons found no link between neurocognitive function and years of football play in adolescent athletes. ...> Full Article


Study identifies genetic differences in female athletes with ACL injuries (3/15/2014)

For the first time, a new study identified varied female-to-male expression of ribonucleic acid molecules leading to proteins maintaining ligament structure, that could explain why females are more likely to suffer an anterior cruciate ligament injury than males. ...> Full Article

Major League Baseball players win more games following Tommy John surgery (3/13/2014)

In the new study, 'Rate of Return to Pitching and Performance after Tommy John Surgery in Major League Baseball Pitchers,' presented today at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, researchers found a high rate of pitchers returning to Major League Baseball play following Tommy John surgery, with a significant improvement in pitching performance. ...> Full Article


Glucosamine fails to prevent deterioration of knee cartilage, decrease pain (3/12/2014)

A short-term study found that oral glucosamine supplementation is not associated with a lessening of knee cartilage deterioration among individuals with chronic knee pain. Findings published in Arthritis & Rheumatology, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology journal, indicate that glucosamine does not decrease pain or improve knee bone marrow lesions -- more commonly known as bone bruises and thought to be a source of pain in those with osteoarthritis. ...> Full Article


Professor shows golfers how to improve their performance and strategy (3/8/2014)

Columbia Business School Professor Mark Broadie expands upon the strokes gained putting stat he developed and which is now in use by the Professional Golfers' Association Tour. Every Shot Counts is not a book about golf mechanics. Instead, using statistical data from the past decade, it is designed to show golfers of all handicaps new ways to improve golf strategy and measure performance. ...> Full Article


College athletes often sidelined from healthy lifestyle later in life (3/5/2014)

College athletes often sidelined from healthy lifestyle later in lifeAn Indiana University study found that elite college athletes often struggle to stay active in later years, facing limitations to their day-to-day activities in middle age that could be a result of injuries during their athletic career. Researchers knew that compared to non-athletes, college athletes experience more severe injuries -- and long-term effects of those injuries. Findings that former elite athletes also scored worse on depression, fatigue and sleep scales were a surprise. ...> Full Article


Researchers look beyond basketball stats to analyze team movement in getting shots (3/4/2014)

Everyone knows a basketball player is more likely to miss a three-point shot if a defender is in his face, but a new automated method for analyzing team formations, created by Disney Research Pittsburgh, shows how players get open for a shot: via defensive role swaps. ...> Full Article


Soccer formations analysis suggests home advantage is result of execution (3/3/2014)

An automated analysis by Disney Research Pittsburgh of team formations used during an entire season of professional soccer provides further evidence that visiting teams are less successful than home teams because they play conservatively, not because of a mythical home advantage. ...> Full Article


New study looks at biomarkers in assessing pitch count's bearing on injury (3/2/2014)

A pioneering research project looking at the correlation between pitch count and throwing arm injuries involves movement and strength studies along with what is believed to be a first in this field of research -- biomarkers. ...> Full Article


More evidence that vision test on sidelines may help diagnose concussion (3/1/2014)

A simple vision test performed on the sidelines may help determine whether athletes have suffered a concussion, according to a study released today that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's 66th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, April 26-May 3, 2014. ...> Full Article
