Background: Health disparities related to concussions have been reported in the literature for certain minority populations. Given the significant impact of concussions on long- and short-term function, the mitigation of barriers to accessing care is an important public health objective. Objective: To determine if racial and ethnic disparities exis...
Article
Background: Tendinosis is a chronic degenerative condition. Current research suggests both percutaneous needle tenotomy (PNT) and leukocyte-rich platelet-rich plasma (LR-PRP) may be effective treatments for chronic tendinosis, but no studies have assessed the effectiveness of PNT alone vs. PNT with intratendinous LR-PRP for multiple tendon types i...
Article
Context The incidence of sports-related concussion in females has been increasing in recent years. Objective To conduct a meta-analysis on sex-based differences in concussion incidence in various sports and to determine the effects of study design (retrospective vs prospective), setting (competition vs practice), and population (university and abo...

Ultrasound can play an important role in differentiating the etiology of elbow pain since most pathology is extra-articular and superficial, including tendinosis and tears, ligamentous injury, nerve injury or entrapment, and bursitis (AIUM practice guideline 31:1473–1488, 2012; Tran N, Chow K, Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 11(2):105–116, 2007; Martino...

Handoff, or transfer of patient care information, occurs formally and informally many times each day, within and...
Article
Paget's disease of bone (PDB) is a localized bone disease characterized by excessive bone resorption due to overactive osteoclasts. Seven genetic loci (PDB1-PDB7) have been reported for late-onset PDB. PDB3 is the only locus where a gene, sequestosome 1 (SQSTM1), has been identified. Mutations in SQSTM1 have been associated with both sporadic and h...
