At the time of their retirement, professional athletes have probably been playing their competitive sport for decades. With long sports seasons (i.e. 46 weeks in soccer), players spend 9/10ths of their year conditioning and strength training six days a week. They must adjust to a new reality when they hang up their cleats, pads and helmets. Many pro athletes cut out training cold turkey after retirement. It becomes drudgery after a

Arthroscopic capsular plication for anterior instability related to isolated capsular redundancy is an effective procedure that yields a high rate of patient satisfaction and return to overhead athletic activity with an acceptably low failure rate. Patients with associated rotator cuff injury may be at higher risk for treatment failure.

Background: There is limited information regarding direct comparisons of the outcome of osteochondral autograft transfer (OAT) mosaicplasty and microfracture for the treatment of isolated articular cartilage defects of the knee. The purpose of this retrospective comparative study was to compare the general health outcomes, knee function, and Marx Activity Rating Scale scores for patients treated with OAT or microfracture for symptomatic chondral defects of the femoral condyles or trochlea. We hypothesized

Platelet-rich fibrin matrix applied to the tendon-bone interface at the time of rotator cuff repair had no demonstrable effect on tendon healing, tendon vascularity, manual muscle strength, or clinical rating scales. In fact, the regression analysis suggests that PRFM may have a negative effect on healing. Further study is required to evaluate the role of PRFM in rotator cuff repair.
