AAOS 2017: Why Some ACL Surgeries Fail

Typically, orthopaedic surgeons can get athletes back to their sport with ACL reconstruction surgery. But what happens when the reconstruction surgery isn’t successful?

American Chiropractic Association Adopts Low Back Pain Treatment Guidelines

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), during its annual House of Delegates meeting March 17, approved a resolution to adopt clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of low back pain from the American College of Physicians (ACP) and the Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP). The association seeks to direct its members, payers and policy makers toward shared interpretations of current evidence-based best practices.

Weight-Bearing Exercises Promote Bone Formation in Men

Osteoporosis affects more than 200 million people worldwide and is a serious public health concern, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation. Now, Pamela Hinton, associate professor in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, has published the first study in men to show that long-term, weight-bearing exercises decrease sclerostin, a protein made in the bone, and increase IGF-1, a hormone associated with bone growth. These changes promote bone formation, increasing bone density.

Researchers Identify Potential Treatment for Type of Muscle and Brain Degenerative Disease

UCLA researchers have discovered the molecular basis of an incurable disease known as inclusion body myopathy, Paget disease with frontotemporal dementia, or IBMPFD. Using both fruit flies and human cells the researchers discovered how IBMPFD mutations cause cellular damage, and identified two compounds that are able to reverse the mutations effects. The findings suggest potential strategies to combat IBMPFD and other diseases, including ALS.

Revised Understanding of Graft-Versus-Host Disease Origins Offers New Direction for Potential Therapies

An international research team led by the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute is changing the understanding of the key cellular and molecular events that trigger graft-versus-host disease, an often fatal complication of bone marrow transplants.

Correlation Between 2nd ACL Reconstruction and Physical Therapy Utilization Noted by Researchers

Age, gender and frequency of physical therapy utilization after an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery may be correlated with second ACL reconstruction rates, according to researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Specialty Day today.

Shoulder Injuries in Professional Baseball Players: A Continuing Puzzle

Professional baseball players struggle to return to a high level of play after biceps tenodesis (BP) surgery, according to research presented today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Specialty Day in San Diego. The study examined how players with SLAP tears responded to biceps tenodesis.

Levels of Biomarkers After ACL Surgery May Signal Severity of Osteoarthritis Later in Life

A majority of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction patients develop a condition known as posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA) within 15 years of surgery, which can be debilitating and limit activity. Researchers presenting their work at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Specialty Day in San Diego are highlighting how a set of biomarkers on the day of surgery may explain why some individuals have worse PTOA than others after two years.
