this is referring to an earlier post.

BlizzCon 2010: Update on man injured during dance contest {WoW}

Oct 25th 2010 7:32PM @tharveyyorkshire What you are referring to is called an avulsion fracture. That is where the bone comes off with the ligament. And we can refer to his ligamental damage as a rupture if you want, but that seems a bit much. Also, coming from a medical perspective, working with athletes all week, working with orthopaedic surgeons, and being exposed to orthopaedics for 20 years, tear is a perfectly acceptable term and is used most when referring to ligament injuries, next to sprain. Also, in textbooks you will see the different grades of tear referred to as Grade I "tear" up to a Grade III+ "tear".

@xowarbird69ox That is true, not all tears are repaired surgically. However, when talking about surgery for knee ligaments, they are usually referring to the ACL, MCL, and LCL. But you make a good point.

Oct 25th 2010 6:09PM Ok, I have to rant a little.

1) You tear ligaments, not break them
2) He is wearing a brace and not a cast
3) I saw comments saying it was the ACL he tore, that was never mentioned in the article. There are 4 major ligaments that are in the knee: ACL, PCL, LCL, MCL. The PCL is the only one that is not normally fixed surgically.

Breakfast Topic: Healers are the drummers of WoW {WoW}

Jan 7th 2010 3:42PM As a bass player and a drummer I have to say that healers are the bassists. They get overlooked and people get angry if they do anything fancy. Just sit there and heal. Just keep the groove. Healer are the backbone of WoW. /thanks healers
