Missed Bilateral Anterior Shoulder Dislocation With Bilateral Coracoid Fracture and Unilateral Long Head of Biceps Rupture.

Cureus 2020 Oct 17;12(10):e10996. Epub 2020 Oct 17.

Orthopedic Surgery, Faculty of Medical Science, Lebanese University, Beirut, LBN.

Missed or chronic bilateral anterior shoulder dislocation is a rare presentation, usually secondary to epileptic attack. We present herein an exceptional case of this injury pattern, associated with bilateral displaced fracture of the coracoid process, and unilateral rupture of the long head of biceps. Treatment consisted of open reduction through osteotomy of the lesser tuberosity, with additional stabilization of the glenohumeral joint, using the Latarjet procedure by transposition of the coracoid fragment with its attached conjoint tendon to the antero-inferior glenoid rim.

Editorial Commentary: Coracoclavicular Ligament Reconstruction. Double Up It Is?

Erik Hohmann

Arthroscopy 2020 05;36(5):1271-1272

More than 100 surgical techniques have been described for the reconstruction of the coracoclavicular ligament complex. None of the techniques appears superior, but double-button fixation for acute high-grade acromioclavicular dislocations has become an attractive option. The clinical outcomes are good to excellent, and the return to physical activity and sport is above 90%. Read More

Comparison of a novel hybrid hook locking plate fixation method with the conventional AO hook plate fixation method for Neer type V distal clavicle fractures.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2020 02 9;106(1):67-75. Epub 2019 Dec 9.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dankook University College of Medicine, Cheonan, Korea. Electronic address:

Background: The conventional AO hook locking compression plate (LCP) (Synthes, Solothurn, Switzerland) has only three holes for lateral fragments; therefore it is not suitable for use during the fixation of small-comminuted fragments in some cases. Recently, a novel hybrid hook LCP (TDM, Seoul, Korea) was developed to overcome this limitation. Here, we evaluated the clinical and radiologic outcomes of a novel hybrid hook LCP for Neer type V distal clavicle fractures compared to the outcomes of a conventional AO hook plate. Read More

Shoulder Pseudodislocation Associated with Calcific Tendinitis/Bursitis and Diagnosed by Point of Care Ultrasound.

J Emerg Med 2019 Oct 30. Epub 2019 Oct 30.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan; Department of Pharmacology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Background: Shoulder pseudodislocation, or "drooping shoulder," presents with acute pain and deformity of the joint, with radiographs demonstrating inferior subluxation of the humeral head relative to the glenoid fossa. The diagnosis must be made promptly and distinguished from true glenohumeral dislocation, both to avoid unnecessary attempts at closed reduction and to facilitate investigation of the underlying cause, which may include septic arthritis, hemarthrosis, or other emergent etiologies. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) may be useful in the evaluation of emergency department (ED) patients with suspected pseudodislocation. Read More

The novel arthroscopic subscapular sling procedure grants better stability than an arthroscopic Bankart repair in a cadaveric study.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2020 Jul 17;28(7):2316-2324. Epub 2019 Oct 17.

Orthopaedic Department, Aalesund Hospital, Aalesund, Norway.

Purpose: This novel arthroscopic subscapular sling procedure stabilizes the shoulder using a semitendinosus graft to create a sling around the subscapular tendon, which provides both static and dynamic stability. The aim of the study was to evaluate the biomechanical stability of the subscapular sling procedure in human cadaveric shoulders. The hypothesis was that the sling offers an equal stabilizing effect and range of motion compared to an arthroscopic Bankart repair. Read More

Arthroscopic Coracoacromial Ligament Transfer Augmented With Suspensory V-Shaped Fixation System for Chronic Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocation.

Arthrosc Tech 2019 Jul 11;8(7):e697-e703. Epub 2019 Jun 11.

Shoulder Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Unit, Orthopedics Department, Zagazig University Hospitals, Zagazig, Egypt.

Chronic acromioclavicular joint dislocations (ACJDs) develop when there is failure of conservative treatment, failed surgical treatment of acute ACJD, or simply missing the treatment in the acute healing phase. There is wide agreement that mechanical fixation alone in chronic ACJD is not sufficient and biological augmentation is necessary. Various arthroscopic techniques for reconstruction of the coracoclavicular ligament have been described, but allografts are expensive, are not available in all centers, carry the risk of disease transmission, and are "dead tissue" with a poor capacity for healing.

Irreducible superolateral dislocation of the glenohumeral joint.

Skeletal Radiol 2015 Sep 9;44(9):1387-91. Epub 2015 Jun 9.

Department of Radiology, University of Washington, 4245 Roosevelt Way NE, Box 354755, Seattle, WA, 98105, USA,

The overwhelming majority of glenohumeral dislocations are anterior dislocations that either spontaneously reduce or are reduced at the point of care without significant complications. Posterior dislocations are uncommon, and superior and inferior dislocations are even rarer. We present a case of "superolateral" shoulder dislocation in which the entire rotator cuff was torn either off its insertion or at the musculotendinous junction in combination with a large longitudinal split tear of the deltoid muscle.

[Bony Bankart lesions].

Unfallchirurg 2014 Dec;117(12):1125-38; quiz 1138-40

Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Suite 1000, 81657, Vail, CO, USA.

Fractures of the anteroinferior glenoid rim, termed bony Bankart lesions, have been reported to occur in up to 22% of first time anterior shoulder dislocations. The primary goal of treatment is to create a stable glenohumeral joint and a good shoulder function. Options for therapeutic intervention are largely dependent on the chronicity of the lesion, the activity level of the patient and postreduction fracture characteristics, such as the size, location and number of fracture fragments.
