Sport and exercise medicine research activity in the Arab world: a 15-year bibliometric analysis


The role of sports in decreasing the prevalence of many diseases has led to a growing interest in the field of sport and exercise medicine. But sport and exercise medicine still remains new to the Arab world, waiting to be explored. The aim of this study is to describe and characterize sport and exercise medicine research activity in the Arab world between 2002 and 2016.

Physical Testing in Sports Rehabilitation: Implications


Strength and power constitute vital predictors for an individual’s quality of life and athletic performance. Measurement of these two parameters is very important in the world of sports science and medicine and necessitates a high level of accuracy and reliability. A comprehensive holistic approach that includes multiple testing, psychosocial assessment, and a gradual return to activity is best to achieve promising outcomes and pre-injury athletic levels.

Intraoperative periprosthetic humeral fracture during reverse shoulder arthroplasty: a sequelae of prior biceps tenodesis

Intraoperative periprosthetic humeral fractures are a rare but debilitating complication of reverse shoulder arthroplasty and can occur during multiple stages of the procedure. Prior biceps tenodesis has been found to reduce cortical humeral strength and predispose the patient to humeral fracture.

Dysfunctional expansion of hematopoietic stem cells and block of myeloid differentiation in lethal sepsis


Severe sepsis is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. High mortality rates in sepsis are frequently associated with neutropenia. Despite the central role of neutrophils in innate immunity, the mechanisms causing neutropenia during sepsis remain elusive. Here, we show that neutropenia is caused in part by apoptosis and is sustained by a block of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) differentiation.

Is Intraarticular Pathology Common in Patients With Hip Dysplasia Undergoing Periacetabular Osteotomy?


Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) enables correction of bony acetabular deficiency in the setting of hip dysplasia. Patients with insufficient acetabular coverage often have intraarticular pathology, but the degree of this pathology has been incompletely characterized. We have used arthroscopy as an adjunct to PAO to further delineate intraarticular pathology in patients with hip dysplasia with mechanical symptoms.

Biomechanics of the Acute Boutonniere Deformity


Purpose: To demonstrate which structures of the extensor mechanism create a boutonniere deformity, when damaged, in a cadaver model. An analysis of how damage to these anatomical structures affects the biomechanical performance of the extensor mechanism was also performed.
