This lecture is designed to immerse you in the direct anatomical consideration in the mechanisms and assessment of athletic injuries. Gross dissection of the most commons sport injuries laced with assessment and considerations in predisposing factors to injury. This module will give the student the full scope of athletic injury structure and function as well as a full understanding of the orthopedic assessment of these anatomic structures.
Three learning objectives:
1. The lecture will reacquaint the student with the anatomic aspects of the top sport injuries in the upper extremity.
2. At the completion of this lecture, the student will gain a full understanding of orthopedic examination of the injuries discussed.
3. At the completion of this lecture, the student will understand the mechanisms of injury that may predispose an athlete to injury, based on anatomic, structural and functional considerations.
Top sport injuries in detail- structure, function, assessment-.
1. Head Trauma- evaluating the peripheral vascular supply, meninges, Dural layers, middle meningeal artery, orbit, zygomatic arch, facial nerve, trigeminal nerve
2. Acceleration/deceleration injuries to the cervical spine – muscles and joints involved
3. Shoulder – Biceps brachii tendon, Pectoralis major/minor tendon, Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Subscapularis, Serratus anterior, glenoid labrum
