  • Study shows that injury rates from wearing high-heeled shoes have doubled

    Americans love high-heeled shoes. One survey in 2003 reported that 62 percent of American women wore shoes with a 2-inch or greater heel on a regular basis. Those shoes are taking a toll. New research from the University of Alabama at Birmingham shows that high-heeled-shoe-related injuries doubled between 2002 and 2012. The findings were published […]

  • Can diet and exercise prevent muscle loss in old age?

    Scientists at the University of Southampton have shown that although some studies find diet can enhance the effects of exercise to prevent muscle loss in later life, current evidence about what works is inconsistent. Between the ages of 40 and 80, an estimated 30 to 50 per cent of muscle mass is lost, resulting in […]

  • Male track and field athletes at greater risk of injury

    Compared with other sexes and competition levels, male track and field athletes, particularly masters male athletes, are at a greater risk of injury, according to researchers. During the course of a 3-year period, the researchers recorded 436 injuries sustained by 48,473 competing athletes participating in the Penn Relays Carnival who were treated by the medical […]

  • Total ankle arthroplasty can improve outcomes in coronal plane deformity

    Although research has shown satisfactory outcomes for total ankle arthroplasty in patients with preoperative coronal plane deformity of greater than 10°, it is still considered a relative contraindication; however, researchers recently reported the effective use of total ankle arthroplasty in a patient with a severe preoperative varus deformity without the need for osteotomy. The researchers […]

  • Noncontact lower-extremity injury risks likely differ by sport, gender

    According to recently published data, differences were noted between sport and sex with regard to the risk for sustaining a noncontact lower-extremity injury. Researchers culled online data self-reported from high school soccer and basketball players of both sexes who sustained a noncontact lower-extremity injury between 2005 and 2012. All injuries were compared against the 6.4 […]

  • Osteochondral autograft transplantation may offer higher rate of return to pre-injury athletics

    Among patients who underwent cartilage repair of the knee, osteochondral autograft transplantation enabled a much higher rate of return to pre-injury athletics, according to results presented at the International Cartilage Repair Society Annual Meeting. “Osteochondral autograft transfer offers a significantly higher return rate to pre-injury athletics,” Aaron J. Krych, MD, said in his presentation here. […]

  • Most NFL players with injuries to the midfoot return to game action, study finds

    Nearly 93 percent of National Football League (NFL) athletes who sustained traumatic injuries to the midfoot returned to competition less than 15 months after injury and with no statistically significant decrease in performance, according to new research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The findings, which focus on Lisfranc injuries […]

  • Arthroscopy added to ORIF for unstable ankle fractures did not affect function, pain at intermediate follow-up

    Arthroscopic evaluation of acute unstable ankle fractures performed in conjunction with open reduction and internal fixation did not appear to have an effect on the patient-reported function at mid-term follow-up, but investigators used arthroscopy to perform intra-articular treatments that would have been impossible to carry out otherwise, according to an investigator from Chicago. During a […]

  • External frame fixation aided stable reduction of pilon fractures

    Fragments of pilon fractures could be adequately reduced without exposing the soft tissues of the ankle to additional trauma when investigators at Ashford and St. Peters NHS Foundation Trust used Ilizarov external frames for indirect reduction, fixation and stabilization of fractures, according to a presentation given here. Ashwin Unnithan, MBBS, MSc, FRCS (Ortho), and colleagues […]
