    3-Dimensional Versus 2-Dimensional Comparison of Knee Valgus Collapse during Vertical Jump: Clinical Implications for ACL Risk of Injury Assessment

    Guilherme M. Cesar*, Chase M. Pfeifer and Judith M. Burnfield

    Time-effi cient screening of lower extremity biomechanics to identify potential injurious movement patterns is crucial within athletic medicine settings. When considering biomechanical risk factors for anterior cruciate ligament injuries, several screening tests have been used to assess dynamic knee valgus. Current methods involving 3-dimensional motion capture systems are considered gold standard for such assessment; however, these methods are time consuming and require expensive materials.

    An Unusual Cause of Anterolateral Ankle Pain and Snapping

    Vasileios Triantafyllis* and Roshin Thomas

    Most patients with anterolateral ankle pain report some history of trauma as the precipitating event. In the majority of cases of anterolateral ankle pain with no history of trauma the cause is proliferative synovitis, especially in the area of the anteroinferior tibiofibular ligament [1,2]. Our case report is about a patient with anterolateral ankle pain and snapping, with no history of trauma, caused by an abnormal peroneal tertius muscle belly. We have found only one similar case reported in the literature [3]. That particular case was treated with arthroscopic resection, which requires specialist arthroscopic skills. In our case we have done an open resection, which can be safely performed by most surgeons.

    Parents Take-On Concussion: Advances in Sideline Research and Culture in Youth Sports

    Arlene Silverio, Scott Briggs, Lisena Hasanaj, Jeffrey Hurd, Jr, Max Lahn, Liliana Serrano, Lucy Cobbs, Jenelle Raynowska, Rachel Nolan, Joel Birkemeier, Dennis Cardone, Steven L Galetta and Laura J. Balcer*

    Identifying concussion and initiating removal from play is challenging for even the most diligent youth sports organizations. Empowering parents to implement removal from play protocols and sideline testing may be the most practical plan at community levels to protect young athletes. We developed paradigms for community-based youth sports teams that incorporated both standard concussion protocols and researchinvestigations.

    Retrospective Analysis of Non-Contact ACL Injury Risk: A Case Series Review of Elite Female Athletes

    Lee Herrington* and Ros Cooke

    Background: Literature on ACL injury is limited when assessing for the presence and interaction of multiple risk factors simultaneously. Identifying risk factor interaction may increase the impact of prevention programmes to target ACL injury reduction. The aim of this study was to retrospectively assess ACL injured female athletes to identify which modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors were present at the time of injury.
