Dr. Raynor was a recent guest on The Sports Medicine Podcast, hosted by Dr. Andrew Dold. He and others had a round table journal club discussion on 4 recent important articles in the orthopedic surgery literature. Check it out here.
Dr. Raynor was honored to serve as the keynote speaker this year at the North Texas Athletic Trainers' Society annual symposium. This is the annual meeting for area athletic trainers from all over North Texas as well as their student athletic trainers. Dr. Raynor delivered a talk on the evaluation and treatment of hip pain in the athlete. He was happy to see many familiar faces and meet many new ones as well.
A paper regarding the optimal management of multidirectional shoulder instability published by Dr. Raynor and Dr. Millett was in the news.
Patients with multidirectional instability of the shoulder experienced an effective and safe treatment with arthroscopic pancapsular capsulorrhaphy with suture anchors at middle-term follow-up in a cohort study.
In the study, multidirectional instability (MDI) was defined clinically as symptomatic instability in more than one direction, one of which was inferior. Surprisingly to the investigators, about 64% of the patients studied had labral detachments and these were also seen in patients with the more classic atraumatic onset of multidirectional glenohumeral instability, according to the findings.
“The most important finding is that arthroscopic pancapsular capsulorrhaphy [APC] can be effective for treating these patients with these complex instability patterns of the shoulder,” Peter J. Millett, MD, MSc, of the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., told Orthopedics Today.
Dr. Raynor and other members of The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado were featured in this issue of Vail Daily. Local high school athletes in the area received free screening physicals prior to participation in sports for the season.
