High impact information on Ankle Injuries

  • Hormonal therapy: ACL and ankle injury [1].
  • METHOD: A study was carried out to document the nature of aeroball related incidents, between 1991 and 1995, at Lancaster University Sports Centre. Lace-up ankle supports were introduced in April 1992, and their effect on the incidence of ankle injury was recorded [2].
  • RESULTS: For the primary endpoints at day 4, the mean pain VAS scores were 31.9 mm +/- 1.96 for celecoxib and 29.0 mm +/- 1.91 for naproxen, and the responder rate for Patient's Global Assessment of Ankle Injury was 71% in the celecoxib group and 72% in the naproxen group, differences that were not statistically significant [3].
  • Immediate high-dose ibuprofen is therefore recommended as treatment for moderate to severe acute ankle injuries [4].

Chemical compound and disease context of Ankle Injuries

  • Patient's Global Assessment of Ankle Injury responses, given on days 4 and 8, showed that the celecoxib group improved significantly more than the placebo group did, with 67% of the celecoxib group versus 55% of the placebo group improving at day 4 (P < .05) [5].
