Heat- and Cold-induced Injuries in Athletes: Evaluation and Management

Both extreme heat and cold can be challenging for athletes during training and competition. One role of the team physician is to educate coaches and athletes on the risks of exposure to these conditions and how to best prevent and manage their adverse effects. Heat illness varies in degree from mild to severe, with the most severe forms being potentially fatal. Cold exposure can result in systemic effects and peripheral injury to the extremities.

Single-row versus double-row rotator cuff repair: techniques and outcomes.

Double-row rotator cuff repair techniques incorporate a medial and lateral row of suture anchors in the repair configuration. Biomechanical studies of double-row repair have shown increased load to failure, improved contact areas and pressures, and decreased gap formation at the healing enthesis, findings that have provided impetus for clinical studies comparing single-row with double-row repair. Clinical studies, however, have not yet demonstrated a substantial improvement over single-row repair with regard to either the degree of structural healing or functional outcomes. Although double-row repair may provide an improved mechanical environment for the healing enthesis, several confounding variables have complicated attempts to establish a definitive relationship with improved rates of healing. Appropriately powered rigorous level I studies that directly compare single-row with double-row techniques in matched tear patterns are necessary to further address these questions. These studies are needed to justify the potentially increased implant costs and surgical times associated with double-row rotator cuff repair.

Management of the posttraumatic arthritic knee.

Excellent long-term outcomes can be achieved with contemporary methods of ligament reconstruction and open reduction and internal fixation for injuries around the knee; nevertheless, posttraumatic arthritis frequently develops. Reconstruction options for symptomatic posttraumatic knee arthritis include osteotomy, arthrodesis, and arthroplasty. Surgical challenges include the presence of extensive (often broken) hardware, scarring, stiffness, bony defects, compromised soft tissues, and malalignment. Patient age and activity and the anatomic location and extent of damage to the articular surface must be taken into account when determining the surgical treatment plan. For younger patients, osteotomy, allograft transplantation, or arthrodesis of the knee is considered, whereas older, low-demand patients are usually treated with arthroplasty. Attention to specific technical details and careful surgical technique are necessary to achieve a successful result. Functional improvement is usually seen following arthroplasty and, sometimes, arthrodesis. However, complications are common, and outcomes following arthroplasty are generally inferior to those reported for other diagnoses.

Three Scientific Exhibits Win Award of Excellence

The 2012 Annual Meeting features more than 88 Scientific Exhibits that graphically illustrate a study or complex procedure. The Exhibits can be viewed in Academy Hall, Level 1 of Moscone West from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. today and from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. In addition, an author from each Exhibit will be available on Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to provide information and answer questions regarding the Exhibit.

Although all the Scientific Exhibits present valuable information, three are stand-outs, according to the Exhibits Committee.

Committee members William H. Seitz Jr, MD, chair; George Walter Balfour, MD; Dennis B. Brooks, MD; Benjamin Goldberg, MD; Steven M. Kurtz, MD; Donald H. Lee, MD; Pekka A. Mooar, MD; Joseph T. Moskal, MD; James V. Nepola, MD; Rick F. Papandrea, MD; and John R. Tenny, MD, viewed each exhibit on Wednesday, evaluating them based on the following criteria:
