Factors affected variability in PF instability injuries among high school athletes

August 31, 2015

Understanding that patterns of patellofemoral instability injuries among high school athletes may vary by sport, sex and type of exposure, which investigators in this study found, may help with the formulation of new injury prevention strategies and to decrease the risk of further patellofemoral instability injuries.

From the National High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance System, investigators obtained data on patellofemoral instability injuries sustained for 22 sports from 2007 to 2008 through 2012 to 2013. They collected data regarding athlete demographics, injury mechanism and details, practice vs. competition, return to play (RTP) and any required surgery.
