Dr. Nate Orvets presented the findings of the acute versus delayed MRI imaging and associated pathology in traumatic anterior shoulder dislocations. We found more posterior labral tears, SLAP tears, and higher grade of cartilage damage in patients if they wait more than 6 months to get their MRI scans after the primary shoulder dislocation. This increase associated lesions in the shoulder is related to recurrent instability. This study has been presented at multiple national meetings and currently is published in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine (OJSM). Dr. Orvets won first place for this research study.
