Wrestling is a popular high school and college sport with an injury and illness rate second only to football. It is important that the physician providing medical care for wrestlers be familiar with the unique characteristics of wrestling and the associated common injuries and medical problems. Common orthopedic injuries include shoulder, elbow, and finger dislocation; prepatellar bursitis; knee medial collateral ligament sprains; and cervical strains. Skin infections are the most common cause of missed mat time for wrestlers...

The elbow is a complex joint designed to withstand a wide range of dynamic exertional forces. The location and quality of elbow pain can generally localize the injury to one of the four anatomic regions: anterior, medial, lateral, or posterior. The history should include questions about the onset of pain, what the patient was doing when the pain started, and the type and frequency of athletic and occupational activities. Lateral and medial epicondylitis are two of the more common diagnoses and often occur as a result of occupational activities...

We present a case of intra- and extra-articular localized pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) of the right knee joint separately. A 14-year-old girl presented with a painful mass over the medial aspect of the right knee. MRI demonstrated nodular masses located in the anteromedial area of the knee joint and on the surface of the deep medial collateral ligament outside the joint. Arthroscopic and open synovectomy were performed for both lesions. Histopathology confirmed diagnosis of localized PVNS and pigmented villonodular bursitis, respectively...

The clinical anatomy of several pain syndromes of the knee is herein discussed. These include the iliotibial tract syndrome, the anserine syndrome, bursitis of the medial collateral ligament, Baker's cyst, popliteus tendon tenosynovitis and bursitis of the deep infrapatellar bursa. These syndromes are reviewed in terms of the structures involved and their role in knee physiology. All of the discussed structures can be identified in their normal state and more so when they are affected by disease. The wealth of information gained by cross examination of the medial, lateral, posterior and anterior aspects of the knee brings to life knowledge acquired at the dissection table, from anatomical drawings and from virtual images...

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is the most commonly injured ligament of the knee. There is a spectrum of injury severity, and injuries may be acute or chronic. The MCL is also frequently injured in conjunction with other knee structures. Clinical evaluation of the knee is important to assess the degree of surgical acuity, but magnetic resonance imaging can provide details about the injury that may not be obvious clinically. In addition to injury, MCL bursitis can occur and may be treated with needle aspiration and corticosteroid injection...

Ultrasonography of the elbow is a very helpful and reliable diagnostic procedure for a broad spectrum of rheumatic and orthopedic conditions, representing a possible substitute to magnetic resonance imaging for evaluation of soft tissues of the elbow. Musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) shows many advantages over other imaging modalities, probably the most important being its capability to perform a dynamic assessment of musculoskeletal elements with patient's partnership and observation during examination. In addition, ultrasonography is cost effective, easy available, and has excellent and multiplanar capability to visualize superficial soft tissue structures...

AIMS: The aim of our study was to investigate the incidence and coexistence of multiple knee joint pathologies and the distribution of knee joint pathologies according to age and sex. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed using the clinical data of patients evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee joint. Data from 308 patients examined between August 2002 and July 2003 were included into this study. A Pearson correlation analysis was performed to examine the relationship between the pathological findings and the age and sex of the patients...

The purpose of this article is to describe a sonographically guided technique to perform therapeutic injection into the medial collateral ligament bursa. Scans are performed using a high-frequency linear transducer with the scan plane corresponding to the anatomic coronal plane. The transducer is positioned along the medial aspect of the knee; a 25-gauge needle is placed along the inferior border of the bursa; and a standardized therapeutic mixture (anesthetic and long-active corticosteroid) is injected. Distention of the bursa is the determining factor for a successful injection...

Mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions have gained much popularity, and the sport is watched by many millions annually. Despite ongoing controversy, there have been no objective studies of the injuries sustained in MMA based on on-site evaluation. In the study reported in this article, we attempted to delineate injury patterns for MMA participants. We conducted an observational cohort study of MMA competitions held in Hawaii between 1999 and 2006. The study included 116 bouts, involving 232 "exposures" and 179 male participants between ages 18 and 40...

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is made up of different components and spans the medial aspect of the knee. With injuries the superficial or deep and posterior components may be involved. A variety of conditions including MCL bursitis, medial osteoarthritis, medial cellulitis, medial bursitis, medial meniscal cyst, meniscocapsular separation, and retinacular tear may present with high signal surrounding the MCL fibers and simulate an MCL tear.

There are no clear guidelines for diagnostic imaging of articular and soft tissue pathologies of the shoulder and elbow. Several methods are used, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) and ultrasound (US). Their cost-effectiveness is still unclear. We performed a meta-analysis of the relevant literature and discussed the role of MR imaging of the shoulder and elbow compared with other diagnostic imaging modalities. For the shoulder impingement syndrome and rotator cuff tears, MRI and US have a comparable accuracy for detection of full-thickness rotator cuff tears...

Ultrasonography (US) of the elbow is an increasingly utilized modality for a variety of diagnoses. US is advantageous in many cases because of the ability to perform a dynamic examination while obtaining patient feedback. Furthermore, US is cost effective, widely available, and beautifully demonstrates superficial soft tissue structures. Finally, US is an excellent option for patients whose studies are degraded by motion artifact or those with claustrophobia concerns. The most common pathologies about the elbow are discussed in this article, including partial- and full-thickness tears of the biceps and triceps tendons, common extensor and flexor tendinosis, medial and lateral epicondylitis, radial and ulnar collateral ligament tears, ulnar nerve entrapment, cubital or olecranon bursitis, joint effusions, and intra-articular bodies...

The reconstruction of large soft-tissue defects at the elbow is hard to achieve by conventional techniques and is complicated by the difficulty of transferring sufficient tissue with adequate elasticity and sensate skin. Surgical treatment should permit early mobilisation to avoid permanent functional impairment. Clinical experience with the distal pedicled reversed upper arm flap in 10 patients suffering from large elbow defects is presented (seven male, three female; age 40-70 years). The patient sample included six patients with chronic ulcer, two with tissue defects due to excision of a histiocytoma, and one patient with burn contracture...

The differential diagnosis of anteromedial knee pain is extensive and can be associated with meniscal tear, medial collateral ligament sprain, or pes anserinus bursitis. An association between knee pain and a peripheral nerve sheath tumor has rarely been reported. The authors describe the case of a 44-year-old man with a saphenous nerve schwannoma who presented with vague pain in the medial aspect of his knee mimicking the clinical presentation of a meniscal tear.
