Preoperative Evaluation Important in Arthroscopic Shoulder Stabilization

Young athletes with shoulder instability are considered to be a high-risk group of patients following arthroscopic shoulder stabilization given the high recurrence rates and lower rates of return to sport, which have been reported in the literature.

However, according to researchers presenting their work today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's (AOSSM) Annual Meeting in San Diego outcomes may be improved by proper patient selection and reserving arthroscopic stabilization for athletes with fewer incidents of pre-operative instability.

Method To Treat Blood Vessel Damage in Diabetes

A study showed the evidence in diabetes, both the tightly woven endothelial cells that line our blood vessels and the powerhouses that drive those cells start to come apart as early steps in the destruction of our vasculature.

Levels of the enzyme PDIA1, which enables a healthy homeostasis of endothelial cells as well as the production of new blood vessels, decrease in diabetes, while the activity of Drp1, a key regulator of fission regulated by PDIA1. The study was published in the journal Cell Reports.
