CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) - The Western & Southern Open 2014, continues at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason. So do the injuries to players.
One common condition is "tennis elbow". What might surprise you is how little that condition has to do with tennis.
Karah Russell is a volunteer at the tournament and an amateur tennis player who loves the game. She doesn't always love the toll tennis takes on the body, however. As with most players, she tends to feel it most in her legs and arms.
Staged bilateral total shoulder arthroplasty: improved outcomes with less than 6 months between surgeries.
Research on optimal timing of bilateral anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is lacking. The purpose of this study was to investigate functional outcomes in patients undergoing bilateral anatomic TSA to understand the ideal timing for the second arthroplasty.
Outcomes After Isolated Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction for the Treatment of Recurrent Lateral Patellar Dislocations: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
A patellar dislocation is a common knee injury in the young, athletic patient population. Recent trends indicate that the use of long-term nonoperative treatment is decreasing, and surgical intervention is more commonly recommended for those patients who fail initial nonoperative management with recurrent patellar dislocations. Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction has become increasingly utilized in this regard.
The LG/J murine strain exhibits near-normal tendon biomechanical properties following a full-length central patellar tendon defect.
Identifying biological success criteria is needed to improve therapies, and one strategy for identifying them is to analyze the RNA transcriptome for successful and unsuccessful models of tendon healing. We have characterized the MRL/MpJ murine strain and found improved mechanical outcomes following a central patellar tendon (PT) injury. In this study, we evaluate the healing of the LG/J murine strain, which comprises 75% of the MRL/MpJ background, to determine if the LG/J also exhibits improved biomechanical properties following injury and to determine differentially expressed transcription factors across the C57BL/6, MRL/MpJ and the LG/J strains during the early stages of healing.
