Coracoacromial morphology: a contributor to recurrent traumatic anterior glenohumeral instability?

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA; Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, School of Computing, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA; Department of Bioengineering, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Although scapular morphology contributes to glenohumeral osteoarthritis and rotator cuff disease, its role in traumatic glenohumeral instability remains unknown. We hypothesized that coracoacromial and glenoid morphology would differ between healthy subjects and patients with recurrent traumatic anterior shoulder instability.

Methods: Computed tomography scans of 31 cadaveric control scapulae and 54 scapulae of patients with recurrent traumatic anterior shoulder instability and Hill-Sachs lesions were 3-dimensionally reconstructed. Read More

Surgical Considerations in Managing Osteoporosis, Osteopenia, and Vitamin D Deficiency During Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair.

Orthop Clin North Am 2019 Apr;50(2):233-243

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Rothman Institute-Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Osteopenia and osteoporosis are common in older adults and are associated with increased risk of fragility fractures. Vitamin D deficiency caused by chronic disease, poor nutrition, and inadequate sun exposure affects bone quality. Chronic rotator cuff tears can deteriorate the bone mineral density of the greater tuberosity and have been linked to reduced anchor pullout strength and high re-tear rate after repair especially in older patients with larger tear size.

Targeting the NF-κB signaling pathway in chronic tendon disease.

Sci Transl Med 2019 Feb;11(481)

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Columbia University, 650 W 168th St, New York, NY 10032, USA.

Tendon disorders represent the most common musculoskeletal complaint for which patients seek medical attention; inflammation drives tendon degeneration before tearing and impairs healing after repair. Clinical evidence has implicated the nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB) pathway as a correlate of pain-free return to function after surgical repair. However, it is currently unknown whether this response is a reaction to or a driver of pathology. Read More

Current peri-operative imaging concepts surrounding shoulder arthroplasty.

Skeletal Radiol 2019 Feb 23. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Department of Orthopaedics, Duke University Hospital, 2301 Erwin Road, Durham, NC, 27710, USA.

Glenohumeral osteoarthritis is a prevalent degenerative disease that can lead to excruciating pain and debility. End-stage osteoarthritis can be treated by both conservative and surgical interventions. Along with a comprehensive history and physical exam, pre-operative imaging with plain radiographs, computerized tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging plays an essential role in the decision-making process guiding whether the patient undergoes a shoulder hemiarthroplasty, anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty, or a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

Editorial Commentary: Progression of Degenerative Full-Thickness Rotator Cuff Tears: Are We Finally Using Natural History Data to Define At-Risk Tears?

Authors:
Jay D Keener

Arthroscopy 2019 Jan;35(1):235-236

Washington University.

Defining and understanding natural history data for any disease is paramount to developing effective treatment strategies: degenerative rotator cuff disease is no different. The natural history defines disease progression without treatment or intervention. Given the persistent variable indications for surgical intervention for painful rotator cuff tears, a more thorough understanding of the rate of progression of full-thickness rotator cuff tears can help to refine surgical indications and potentially define the risks of nonoperative treatment.

Performance of PROMIS Global-10 Compared With Legacy Instruments for Rotator Cuff Disease.

Am J Sports Med 2019 Jan 27;47(1):181-188. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, School of Medicine, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA.

Background:: The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Global-10 was recently developed to assess physical and mental health and provide an estimated EuroQol-5 Dimension (EQ-5D) score. This instrument needs to be validated for specific patient cohorts such as those with rotator cuff pathology.

Hypothesis:: There is moderate to high correlation between the PROMIS Global-10 and legacy patient-reported outcome measures; PROMIS Global-10 will not show ceiling effects; and estimated EQ-5D scores will show good correlation and low variance with actual EQ-5D scores. Read More

Attrition of rotator cuff without progression to tears during 2-5 years of conservative treatment for impingement syndrome.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2019 Mar 11;139(3):377-382. Epub 2018 Nov 11.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Severance Hospital, Arthroscopy and Joint Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 50-1 Yonsei-ro, Seodaemun-gu, CPO Box 8044, Seoul, 120-752, South Korea.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the natural history of intact rotator cuff in impingement syndrome patients with concomitant spur protruding from the undersurface of acromion.

Methods: This retrospective study included 119 patients with an intact rotator cuff who underwent conservative treatment for a spur protruding from the undersurface of the acromion. The protruded spur was defined as a trapezoid- or tetragon-shaped bony protrusion with a downward peak extending more than 3 mm in length from the baseline drawn along the acromial undersurface on the coronal view of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography arthrography (CTA).

[Comparative functional outcome of reverse shoulder prostheses implanted on degenerative and oncological indications].

Orv Hetil 2018 11;159(45):1838-1843

Ortopédiai Klinika, Semmelweis Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Budapest, Üllői út 78/B, 1082.

Introduction: Several methods (bone graft, endoprosthesis) are used to reconstruct proximal humerus resections due to primary and metastatic tumours. One of the new procedures is the replacement of the joint surfaces and the removed proximal humerus end with reverse shoulder prosthesis, optionally supplemented with bone implantation (composite procedure) in the hope of achieving better shoulder function.

Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the shoulder function of the patient group operated by the above procedure with reverse prosthesis to a patient group operated by indication of degenerative shoulder disease (rotator cuff arthropathy). Read More

Arthroscopic repair of glenoid rim fractures: a ligamentotaxis surgical technique.

Musculoskelet Surg 2018 Oct 20;102(Suppl 1):41-48. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

Ospedale di Suzzara, Suzzara, Mantova, Italy.

Purpose: Glenoid fractures occur as a result of direct impact of the humeral head against the glenoid rim following high-energy trauma. They frequently involve one-third of the glenoid surface with an oblique fracture rim from 2 to 6-7 o'clock, and they must not be confused with bony Bankart lesions. In medium-age patients, they are frequently associated with acute cuff tear while in older patients with chronic cuff tear: These conditions increase the instability of the shoulder if not treated.

Does Distal Clavicle Resection Decrease Pain or Improve Shoulder Function in Patients With Acromioclavicular Joint Arthritis and Rotator Cuff Tears? A Meta-analysis.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Dec;476(12):2402-2414

J. Wang, S.-W. Zhu, H.-B. Jia, X.-L. Ma, Department of Orthopaedics, Tianjin Hospital, Tianjin, China J.-X. Ma, X.-L. Ma, Department of Orthopaedics Institute, Tianjin Hospital, Tianjin, China.

Background: Acromioclavicular joint arthritis is a common, painful, and often missed diagnosis, and it often accompanies other shoulder conditions such as rotator cuff disease. Whether distal clavicle resection is important to perform in patients undergoing surgery for rotator cuff tears and concomitant acromioclavicular joint arthritis is controversial.

Questions/purposes: The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the effect of distal clavicle resection on (1) outcome scores; (2) shoulder ROM, joint pain or tenderness, and joint instability; and (3) risk of reoperation among patients treated surgically for rotator cuff tears who had concomitant acromioclavicular joint arthritis.

Allogenic Pure Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for Rotator Cuff Disease: A Bench and Bed Study.

Am J Sports Med 2018 Nov 12;46(13):3142-3154. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, SMG-SNU Boramae Medical Center, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Dongjak-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background:: Although platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a popular option for rotator cuff disease, the underlying mechanism of PRP and its clinical indications are unclear. Further, some kinds of PRP might be detrimental to patients. Allogenic PRP prepared through a standardized process and fully characterized could eliminate variations in PRP as well as uncertainties regarding its use in each patient, which could provide clues about its mechanism of action and indications for its use.

Therapeutic Effects of Umbilical Cord Blood-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Combined with Polydeoxyribonucleotides on Full-Thickness Rotator Cuff Tendon Tear in a Rabbit Model.

Cell Transplant 2018 Oct 1:963689718799040. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

3 Department and Research Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

While therapies using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to treat rotator cuff tendon tear (RCTT) have yielded some promising preliminary results, MSCs therapy has not yet completely regenerated full-thickness RCTT (FTRCTT). It has recently been reported that polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) is effective in the treatment of chronic rotator cuff disease. We hypothesized that local injection of human umbilical cord blood-derived (UCB)-MSCs with PDRN would be more effective in regenerating tendon tear than UCB-MSCs alone. Read More

The Effect of Rotator Cuff Repair on Natural History: A Systematic Review of Intermediate to Long-Term Outcomes.

JB JS Open Access 2018 Mar 9;3(1):e0043. Epub 2018 Feb 9.

Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery (P.N.C., H.R., E.G., and R.Z.T.), and Epidemiology (A.P.P. and C.Z.), University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Background: Rotator cuff disease can have a progressive natural history of increasing tear size and worsening function. It remains unknown whether rotator cuff repair alters this natural history.

Methods: A systematic review of the intermediate to long-term (minimum 5-year) results of operative rotator cuff repair and no repair of rotator cuff injuries was performed to compare (1) patient-based outcomes, (2) future surgical intervention, (3) future tear progression or recurrence, and (4) tear size.
