Ultrasound of the elbow with emphasis on the sonoanatomy of the distal biceps tendon and its importance for the surgical treatment of tendon lesions.

J Ultrason 2020 15;20(81):e129-e134. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

LEONARDO, Hirslanden Clinic Birshof , Münchenstein, Baselland , Switzerland.

Degenerative or traumatic ruptures of the distal biceps tendon are less common than proximal lesions. Distal lesions lead to a significant loss of function with usually considerable discomfort for patients. Therefore, precise diagnostics using operator-dependent high-resolution musculoskeletal ultrasound with illustration of the extent of the affected tendon lesion are important for optimizing patient management.

Translational Medicine, Parc Tauli University Hospital, Sabadell, Spain.

The rupture of the Achilles tendon (AT) usually occurs in high-caliber athletes, but low-demand patients are also are risk, mainly if they are under corticoids or quinolones. The diagnosis of the AT rupture is usually neglected, and this could result in a worse prognosis for the patient if not treated in an appropriate time. For these patients or for those with high surgical risk, an option of minimally invasive surgery remains attractive. Read More

Knowledge regarding the importance of the superior labrum in shoulder function is evolving as biomechanical and clinical studies define the roles of the labrum in shoulder function and dysfunction. The diagnosis of the clinically significant labral injury, the alteration in labral anatomy that is associated with the production of clinical symptoms and dysfunction and requires management, is based on specific history and clinical examination findings that point to the loss of labral roles. Surgical management should address all aspects of the altered labral anatomy and repair the labral structure to allow normal labral roles without excessive biceps tension. Read More

Although the long head of the biceps tendon is known to resist superior movement of the humeral head in the shoulder joint and assist flexion and supination of the elbow joint, its exact function remains unclear. Moreover, the ideal treatment of lesions of the long head of the biceps tendon such as tendinitis, subluxation, dislocation, and partial or complete rupture remains controversial. Various tenodesis methods have been introduced by many authors. Read More

Editorial Commentary: Does the Morphology of the Acromion Explain All Rotator Cuff Tears?

Arthroscopy 2019 12;35(12):3316-3317

Bern, Switzerland.

Given the high prevalence of rotator cuff tears and their socioeconomic impact, surgeons and researchers have tried to understand their etiology and pathomechanism for almost hundred years. Articles about tendon degeneration with increasing age dominate the literature, and numerous factors contributing to tendon degeneration have been identified. One of them, the lateral extension of the acromion, as quantitated using the acromion index or the critical shoulder angle, has become very popular in the last few years. Read More

Effect of affective temperament on outcome of rotator cuff surgery.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 12 13;105(8):1549-1553. Epub 2019 Nov 13.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Etimesgut Şehit Sait Ertürk State Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Introduction: Although numerous risk factors have been described, the effects of temperament, which is defined as a risk factor for certain disorders, on the outcome of patients undergoing rotator cuff surgery have not been investigated.

Hypothesis: We investigated whether a relationship exists between affective temperament and the outcome of patients undergoing rotator cuff surgery.

Material And Methods: The outcomes of 176 patients undergoing rotator cuff surgery were examined using the Oxford and Constant questionnaires as well as visual analog scale values preoperatively and postoperatively. Read More

A meta-analysis comparing tenotomy or tenodesis for lesions of the long head of the biceps tendon with concomitant reparable rotator cuff tears.

J Orthop Surg Res 2019 Nov 15;14(1):370. Epub 2019 Nov 15.

Department of Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine, The Second Hospital of Inner Mongolia Medical University, No. 1 Yingfang Street, Huimin District, Hohhot, 010000, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.

Background: The best treatment for lesions of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) with concomitant reparable rotator cuff tears is still controversial. The purpose of the meta-analysis was to compare clinical outcomes of biceps tenotomy and tenodesis for LHBT lesions.

Methods: A literature retrieval was conducted in MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Library from 1979 to March 2018. Read More

All-Suture Anchor Settling After Arthroscopic Repair of Small and Medium Rotator Cuff Tears.

Am J Sports Med 2019 12 13;47(14):3483-3490. Epub 2019 Nov 13.

Shoulder and Elbow Clinic, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: All-suture anchors are increasingly being used in rotator cuff repair. However, there are debates on the micromotion of all-suture anchors.

Purpose: To perform rotator cuff repair on patients with rotator cuff tears and different shoulder bone mineral densities (BMDs) and investigate (1) where the anchor is located under the cortex, (2) if there is any anchor migration settling during follow-up, and (3) if structural outcome differs according to shoulder BMD.

The effect of tendon rotation on distal biceps repair.

JSES Open Access 2019 Oct 11;3(3):225-231. Epub 2019 Sep 11.

Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Background: The distal biceps tendon externally rotates from proximal to distal before inserting onto the radius. Our hypothesis is that an externally rotated (anatomic) repair would re-create native supination moment arm and flexion force, whereas an internally rotated (nonanatomic) repair would result in reduced force transmission.

Methods: The mechanical tests performed in this study measured isometric moment arms and elbow flexion force using a validated elbow simulator as previously published. Read More

Total shoulder arthroplasty with nonspherical humeral head and inlay glenoid replacement: clinical results comparing concentric and nonconcentric glenoid stages in primary shoulder arthritis.

JSES Open Access 2019 Oct 13;3(3):145-153. Epub 2019 Sep 13.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Background: Glenoid morphology can influence the outcomes of total shoulder arthroplasty. This study examines the results of a new technique according to preoperative glenoid staging. We hypothesized that there would be no statistically significant difference in outcomes between Levine concentric (Walch A) and Levine nonconcentric (Walch B) glenoids treated for primary glenohumeral arthritis using nonspherical humeral head and inlay glenoid replacement.

Novel implant-free loop Tenodesis vs. simple Tenotomy of the long biceps tendon - a biomechanical investigation.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2019 Nov 9;20(1):522. Epub 2019 Nov 9.

Clinic of Trauma Surgery, University Medical Center Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauss-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: Simple tenotomy and anchor tenodesis are commonly used in treatment of long biceps tendon (LHB) pathologies. The tenotomy can result in biceps distalization or cosmetic deformities. A novel loop Tenodesis Technique (LTD) could prevent a distalization of the biceps muscle without the risk of implant associated complications. Read More
