Association Between Clinical and Imaging Outcomes After Therapeutic Loading Exercise in Patients Diagnosed With Achilles or Patellar Tendinopathy at Short- and Long-Term Follow-up: A Systematic Review
Conclusions: Based on the findings of the present review, the use of imaging outcomes as a complementary examination to the clinical assessment was confirmed. Overall, an improvement in clinical outcomes seems to be associated with a reduction in tendon thickness and tendon neovascularization. Clinicians should be aware that during the interpretation of the imaging outcomes, factors such as tendinopathy location, exercise modality performed, and a follow-up period should be considered.

A Case Series and Literature Review: Isolated Traumatic First Rib Fracture in Athletes
Conclusions: Traumatic fracture of the first rib in sport is certainly not a common diagnosis, but it is likely more widespread than sports medicine providers realize. Considering the diagnosis of first rib fracture for athletes with shoulder pain after trauma is essential for identifying this injury. Although more study is likely needed to make definitive recommendations on treatment and return to play protocols, the case series and literature review presented suggests that rehabilitation and return to play when the patient is asymptomatic may be appropriate care.

Practice Patterns of Family Physicians With and Without Sports Medicine Certification
Conclusions: The similarity of scope of practice for SM-FPs and family physicians without a CAQ and the time spent practicing SM by SM-FPs suggests that most SM-FPs are spending a significant amount of time continuing to practice their primary specialty. Sports medicine family physicians are largely attracted to urban practice settings, most likely because of the higher likelihood of employment opportunities. Finally, factors that may be dissuading women from entering the field of SM deserve further investigation. (Source: Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine)

Concussion Symptom Underreporting Among Incoming National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I College Athletes
Conclusions: Greater concussion knowledge did not reduce the number of reasons that participants viewed as drivers for concussion nondisclosure. In other words, participants understood why athletes choose to hide symptoms even when they also understood the symptoms, risks, sequelae, and consequences of concussion (and potential harm of nondisclosure). Situational contexts and important stakeholder attitudes also appeared to importantly influence symptom disclosure decisions. A multifaceted approach that goes beyond current educational strategies to addresses situational, social, and athletic pressures may be needed to in...

Ruptured Extensor Pollicis Longus Tendon After a Nondisplaced Distal Radius Fracture in a Young Adult Soccer Player
Abstract: Forearm fractures of the distal radius are one of the most common fractures seen in the upper extremity, and they represent approximately 1/6 of fractures treated in the emergency department. Forearm fractures are associated with a rare but known complication of a delayed ruptured extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon. This sequela is more commonly seen in adults after a nondisplaced distal radius fracture, with much variability in the incidence ranging from 0.07% to 5%. By contrast, this complication in the pediatric population is almost exclusively seen after a displaced or unstable fracture necessitating sur...

Heterotrophic Ossification in Patient With Prosthetic Leg
Abstract: 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. This abnormal formation was actually advantageous because it created a more snug fit of the prosthetic device and improved the pa...
