Allegra and Salo Presents Research at American College Emergency Physicians


John Allegra, MD, PhD, FACEP, and David Salo, MD, PhD, presented at the 2012 American College of Emergency Physicians scientific assembly, held Oct. 8-11 in Denver.

Drs. John Allegra and David Salo presented "Gender Differences in the Occurrence of Patellar dislocations.” The goal was to examine gender differences in the occurrence of patella dislocations in a large emergency department database. They hypothesized there would be an increased occurrence of dislocations in females, and as a result of gender specific musculoskeletal differences after puberty, the gender differences would be higher after puberty. The study found a small but statistically significant greater occurrence of patella dislocations among females in an ED database. And contrary to the hypothesis, gender differences decreased after puberty. Additionally, the occurrence of patellar dislocations in females did not increase over the study time period.
