Research Focus

While in the lab, Dr. Deal focused on nerve repair using different neurorrhaphy techniques, including external fixator-assisted primary neurorrhaphy. She also examined the effect of ice on reducing microvascular permeability following contusion. She found that ice reduces edema after contusion by inhibiting leukocyte adhesion to the endothelium. In a large two-part clinical and basic science study, Dr. Deal examined the effect arthroscopic pressurization on the immature physis. In an animal model, she found that the intra-articular pressures associated with pediatric arthroscopy are not detrimental to skeletal growth. On the clinical side, an extensive review and follow-up of pediatric arthroscopic cases found no growth disturbances. In addition, Dr. Deal also investigated the biomechanics of radial head replacement.
