Neuromuscular Training Improves Biomechanical Deficits at the Knee in Anterior Cruciate Ligament-Reconstructed Athletes.

Clin J Sport Med 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.

Objective: Athletes who return to sport after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) demonstrate persistent biomechanical and neuromuscular deficits of the knee.

American Medical Society for Sports Medicine Position Statement on Concussion in Sport.

Clin J Sport Med 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Sport-related concussion (SRC) is a common injury in recreational and organized sport. Over the past 30 years, there has been significant progress in our scientific understanding of SRC, which in turn has driven the development of clinical guidelines for diagnosis, assessment, and management of SRC. In addition to a growing need for knowledgeable health care professionals to provide evidence-based care for athletes with SRC, media attention and legislation have created awareness and, in some cases, fear about many issues and unknowns surrounding SRC.

Surgery, Division of Orthopedics.

The association between donor-specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibody formation and small bone allograft resorption has not been studied. We present the case of a patient treated for glenoid bone loss using a distal tibial allograft with Bankart repair who formed donor-specific HLA antibodies against the allograft and had subsequent graft resorption. X-ray and computed tomography (CT) scans were performed before and after surgery at standard checkpoints. Read More

Heterotrophic Ossification in Patient With Prosthetic Leg.

Clin J Sport Med 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

UT Southwestern School of Medicine, VA of North Texas.

Heterotrophic ossification (HO) is a well-described phenomenon in patients with spinal cord injury, head injury, burns, hip replacement, and general trauma. However, it has also been described through a relative paucity of case reports that repeated microtrauma from the use of weight-bearing leg prostheses is an additional possible cause of HO. In our case, we examine a patient who developed an extreme case of HO after he began an exercise regimen with assistance from a running limb. Read More

Clin J Sport Med 2018 Oct 9. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Gold Coast Spine, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Chronic persistent lower back pain due to degenerative disc disease (DDD) of the lumbar spine is a common condition in the athletic population, which does not always improve with nonoperative treatment. We present a case report of a professional Australian rugby league player with DDD of the lumbar spine presenting with persistent lower back pain, which was not responding to conventional nonsurgical treatment. He then underwent a surgical total disc replacement of the lumbar spine and was subsequently able to return to playing professional rugby league at his previous level of competition. Read More
