The nerve blocks most commonly used in hand surge...

Does Bone Grafting at the Time of Bone-Patellar Tendon-Bone ACL Reconstruction Reduce the Incidence of Post-operative Anterior Knee Pain: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Study
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04958733

Aug 5th, 2022 - It is estimated that 48 out of 10,000 people, in the United States, will tear their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) annually and undergo ACL reconstruction (ACLR).

Rotator Cuff Failure With Continuity
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02716441

Aug 5th, 2022 - Currently, rotator cuff healing is defined as "intact", "attenuated", or "failed" based on the observation (or not) of a recurrent defect (i.e., a "gap") in the tendon using MRI or ultrasound imaging. The investigators' previous work has identified a new outcome, in which there is no detectable defect or "gap" in the repaired tendon, but the repaired tendon has undergone significant retraction....
