Significantly higher instability, pain found with combined UCL, RCL vs. isolated UCL tears

Recently published results showed National Football League players with combined thumb ulnar collateral ligament and radial collateral ligament tears had significantly higher instability and pain compared with players with isolated thumb ulnar collateral ligament injuries.

Researchers included 32 NFL players with 36 thumb metacarpophalangeal collateral ligament injuries, which were confirmed by review of both physical examination findings and MRI. They obtained player demographics, surgical details and return-to-play data from the team electronic medical record and surgeons’ records.
