The article presents updates which were based on the scientific activities in the specialty of sports medicine in the U.S. from August 2008-September 2009. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has been described as the most investigated topic in sports medicine. Posterolateral corner injuries are usually diagnosed as part of a multiligamentous knee injury. The use of biological products for articular cartilate replacement has been considered as the most investigated areas of orthopedics.
