UBM Medica's Musculoskeletal Network Highlights Key Orthopedic Findings From AAOS
Date:2/14/2012

NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica's MusculoskeletalNetwork, an online resource for unique and efficient updates on management of musculoskeletal disorders, now features a summary of the key orthopedic findings presented at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) this February in San Francisco, California.

The AAOS conference offers orthopedists a comprehensive program with the latest in education, research, and technology to help them improve their practice performance and care of patients with musculoskeletal conditions.

AAOS conference highlights presented on MusculoskeletalNetwork include:

  • Defensive medicine—ordering tests, making referrals to specialists, and approving hospital admissions primarily to avoid liability and without providing significant benefit to patients—has been practiced by 96% of orthopedic surgeons. The overall annual cost of defensive orthopedic care is estimated at $2 billion.
  • Up-to-date scientific information was presented on injection of platelet-rich plasma, a new and controversial treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. PRP was shown to enhance the rate of union in patients with nonunited fractures of long bones.
  • The benefits of total knee replacement in older patients with osteoarthritis include a reduced risk of cardiovascular conditions and mortality.
  • Vitamin D deficiency is more prevalent than previously thought. More than three-fourths of patients with trauma have deficient or insufficient levels of vitamin D.
  • Elite youth female soccer athletes face an increased risk of delayed or irregular menstruation. They also are more likely to have a stress fracture or ligament injury.

"The AAOS educational program provides physicians a wealth of timely, useful patient care information. We're pleased that MusculoskeletalNetwork can bring these best practices to orthopedists who missed the conference, specialists in related fields, primary care physicians, and allied health professionals," said Editorial Director Leo Robert.
