REVIEW
Leigh J Weiss, Dean Wang, Michael Hendel, Philip Buzzerio, Scott A Rodeo
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Rotator cuff injuries are a common cause of pain and dysfunction for the elite athlete and can result in time loss from participation. This review highlights the current management of these injuries. RECENT FINDINGS: Conservative management of rotator cuff injuries continues to be the "gold standard" in the elite athlete. This includes a comprehensive rehabilitation program, anti-inflammatories, and corticosteroid injections. Newer treatment techniques such as intramuscular dry needling and the use of biologics such as platelet-rich plasma and stem cells demonstrate early promising results; however, these modalities require further investigation to determine their effectiveness...

REVIEW
Joseph N Liu, Grant H Garcia, Anirudh K Gowd, Brandon C Cabarcas, Michael D Charles, Anthony A Romeo, Nikhil N Verma
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the etiology, classification, presentation, evaluation, treatment strategy, and outcomes in overhead athletes with partial thickness rotator cuff tears. RECENT FINDINGS: Despite advances in surgical repair techniques, return to play following surgical repair of partial rotator cuff tears remains modest at best. Overhead athletes may be particularly prone to rotator cuff pathology due to the supraphysiological strains within the tendon during the throwing motion, as well as mechanical stress with contact between the undersurface of the rotator cuff and the glenoid...

REVIEW
Ryan A Mlynarek, Struan H Coleman
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To discuss the clinical significance of the most common hip and groin injuries in baseball players, as well as an algorithmic approach to diagnosis and treatment of these injuries. RECENT FINDINGS: (a) Limitations in throwing velocity, pitch control, and bat swing speed may be secondary to decreased mobility and strength within the proximal kinetic chain, which must harness power from the lower extremities and core. (b) Approximately 5.5% of all baseball injuries per year involve the hip/groin and may lead to a significant amount of time spent on the disabled list...

REVIEW
Kevin C Wall, Alison P Toth, Grant E Garrigues
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To introduce the challenges in addressing irreparable rotator cuff tears and examine the surgical options, specifically interposition grafting and superior capsule reconstruction. RECENT FINDINGS: Interposition grafting of rotator cuff tears shows promising results in reducing pain and improving function postoperatively and one study demonstrated that it performs significantly better than partial repair alone. Superior capsule reconstruction has become popular rapidly, but given the novelty of the procedure, there is currently a paucity of outcomes data to review...

REVIEW
Randall J Hlubek, Gregory M Mundis
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Recurrent lumbar disc herniation (RLDH) is the most common indication for reoperation after a lumbar discectomy. The purpose of this manuscript is to review the incidence, risk factors, and treatment for RLDH. RECENT FINDINGS: Patients who require revision surgery for RLDH improved significantly compared to baseline; however, the magnitude of improvement is less than in primary discectomy patients. Treatment with either repeat discectomy or instrumented fusion has comparable clinical outcomes...

REVIEW
Peter B Derman, Todd J Albert
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The various lumbar interbody fusion (IBF) techniques and the evidence for their use in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis (DLS) are described in this review. RECENT FINDINGS: The existing evidence is mixed regarding the indications for and utility of IBF in DLS, but its use in the setting of pre-operative instability is most strongly supported. Anterior (ALIF), lateral (LLIF), posterior (PLIF), transforaminal (TLIF), and axial (AxiaLIF) lumbar IBF approaches have been described...

REVIEW
Michael J Elsenbeck, Jonathan F Dickens
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Young athletes continue to experience traumatic shoulder instability and are often plagued by recurrent instability, limiting their return to sport. The purpose of this paper was to review return to sport in athletes after shoulder stabilization surgery for anterior shoulder instability. RECENT FINDINGS: Athletes managed nonoperatively demonstrate unacceptably high rates of recurrent instability and are less likely to successfully return to sport...

REVIEW
Jack M Bert, Jessica Hooper, Sam Moen
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Outpatient total joint arthroplasty (OTJA) allows for a safe, cost effective pathway for appropriately selected patients. With current pressures on arthroplasty surgeons and their associated institutions to reduce costs per episode of care, it is important to define the steps and challenges associated with establishing an outpatient arthroplasty program. RECENT FINDINGS: Several studies have outlined techniques of selecting patients suitable for this type of postoperative pathway...

REVIEW
Vincent A Lizzio, Fabien Meta, Mohsin Fidai, Eric C Makhni
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The goal of this paper is to provide an overview in evaluating the patient with suspected or known anteroinferior glenohumeral instability. RECENT FINDINGS: There is a high rate of recurrent subluxations or dislocations in young patients with history of anterior shoulder dislocation, and recurrent instability will increase likelihood of further damage to the glenohumeral joint. Proper identification and treatment of anterior shoulder instability can dramatically reduce the rate of recurrent dislocation and prevent subsequent complications...

REVIEW
Stephan N Salzmann, Jennifer Shue, Alexander P Hughes
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) is a relatively new, minimally invasive technique for interbody fusion. The goal of this review is to provide a general overview of LLIF with a special focus on outcomes and complications. RECENT FINDINGS: Since the first description of the technique in 2006, the indications for LLIF have expanded and the rate of LLIF procedures performed in the USA has increased. LLIF has several theoretical advantages compared to other approaches including the preservation of the anterior and posterior annular/ligamentous structures, insertion of wide cages resting on the dense apophyseal ring bilaterally, and augmentation of disc height with indirect decompression of neural elements...

REVIEW
Ankur S Narain, Fady Y Hijji, Jonathan S Markowitz, Krishna T Kudaravalli, Kelly H Yom, Kern Singh
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this study is to summarize the recent literature investigating the use of minimally invasive (MIS) techniques in the treatment of lumbar degenerative stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and scoliosis. RECENT FINDINGS: MIS lumbar decompression and fusion techniques for degenerative pathology are associated with reduced operative morbidity, shortened length of hospital stay, and reduced postoperative pain and narcotics utilization. Recent studies with long-term clinical follow-up have demonstrated equivalence in clinical outcomes between open and MIS surgical procedures...

#17
REVIEW
Andre M Samuel, Harold G Moore, Matthew E Cunningham
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Current guidelines for the optimal treatment degenerative spondylolisthesis are weak and based on limited high-quality evidence. RECENT FINDINGS: There is some moderate evidence that decompression alone may be a feasible treatment with lower surgical morbidity and similar outcomes to fusion when performed in a select population with a low-grade slip. Similarly, addition of interbody fusion may be best suited to a subset of patients with high-grade degenerative spondylolisthesis, although this remains controversial...

REVIEW
Justin Rabinowitz, Richard Friedman, Josef K Eichinger
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Glenoid Bone Loss is a commonly encountered problem in anterior shoulder instability. In this article, we review current techniques for diagnosis, indications and management of glenoid bone loss. RECENT FINDINGS: Multiple bone grafting techniques are available depending on the glenoid defect size including the coracoid, distal clavicle, iliac crest, and allograft distal tibia. Advancement in imaging methods allows for more accurate quantification of bone loss...

REVIEW
Amit M Momaya, John M Tokish
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the recent evolution in the treatment of anterior shoulder instability and the dynamic interaction between the glenoid and Hill-Sachs lesion. RECENT FINDINGS: Through the glenoid track concept, glenoid- and humeral-sided bone loss are evolving away from being approached as separate entities. Recent cadaveric studies have validated the glenoid track concept. Moreover, a recent clinical study has demonstrated a much higher rate of failure after arthroscopic Bankart repair for shoulders that were off track...

REVIEW
Nathan Olszewski, Michael Gustin, Emily J Curry, Xinning Li
PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: The goal of this review is to provide a guide on surgical decision-making options for complex anterior shoulder instability using a case-based approach. RECENT FINDINGS: Arthroscopic Bankart repair is well documented for having successful outcomes in patients with isolated labral tear involvement with minimal bone loss. Latarjet is a generally accepted procedure in patients with 20-30% glenoid bone loss. When bone loss exceeds that which cannot be managed through Latarjet, a range of options exist and are highly dependent upon the extent of osseous deficiency on both the glenoid and humeral sides, surgeon experience, and patient-specific factors...
