Recovery and time to surgery linked in proximal hamstring avulsion fixation

May 6, 2015

A delay in surgery for a patient who has suffered a hamstring avulsion injury can lead to a longer delay in return to sport for athletes of all levels, according to results of a study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine conducted by Harry Benjamin-Laing, BSc, MBCh, MRCS, and colleagues.

The study, performed at the Institute of Sport Exercise and Health, in London, examined the outcomes of athletes at all levels of play who had hamstring avulsions and the speed at which they returned to their level of sport after various delays to surgery.
