Patients with rotator cuff tears experience fatty infiltration increased percentages of most likely caused primarily by muscle atrophy and a single image slice did not capture 3-D muscle measurements, according to recently published data.
In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, silicone metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty provided benefits that were sustained for up to 7 years and had low rates of implant fracture or deformity, according to recently published results
After platelet-rich plasma injections, researchers have described the structural change in the healing process as well as improvement in patients’ pain and function, in a new report.
Results presented at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting showed favorable results with both tenodesis and tenotomy in the treatment of lesions of the long head of the biceps tendon.
Locked posterior shoulder dislocation is an uncommon condition and is associated with a reverse Hill-Sachs lesion in 50% of cases. The condition is likely to occur in cases of violent trauma, seizures, or electric shock. Unrecognized dislocation with humeral head fracture affects joint function and humeral head vascularity and may lead to chronic instability, osteonecrosis, and osteoarthritis.
Nerve transfer is favored over nerve grafting in managing high ulnar nerve injuries because of better improvement of motor power and better restoration of grip functions of the hand.
This study aimed to investigate the anatomy of the articular surface of the distal radius, in particular measuring the angle between the dorsal and volar rims at several points from radial to ulnar, to ascertain whether volar tilt is uniform between the scaphoid and lunate facet and to explore consistency between standard lateral and ATL views.
Retear and stiffness are not uncommon outcomes of rotator cuff repair. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between rotator cuff repair healing and shoulder stiffness.
It’s rare to fracture your shoulder blade (scapula). Your shoulder blade is well protected by your chest and muscles, so it takes significant force for this fracture to occur. When it does, most people have other injuries—like head damage or a chest injury. Given its potential severity, a shoulder blade fracture is one to know about.
