The article presents updates related to sports medicine and surgery. It says the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) remains the most studie area in sports medicine. A clinical study also compared the use of double-bundle or single-bundle reconstructions. It tells that while previous multiple systematic reviews of single-row as compared with double-row repairs of rotator cuff showed no difference in terms of clinical outcomes, the latter may provide improved tendon healing and lower retear rates.
