Unusual Case of a Volleyball Athlete Presenting with Posterior Shoulder Pain and Infraspinatus Muscle Wasting.

J Orthop Case Rep 2018 Sep-Oct;8(5):11-14

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.

Introduction: Entrapment of the suprascapular nerve is an uncommon but important differential in patients who present with posterior shoulder pain. Frequently misdiagnosed as rotator cuff or cervical disc disease, this increasingly recognized entity can result from traction-related or compression-related etiology. Two sites of compression include the suprascapular and spinoglenoid notches with the latter less commonly encountered. Read More

Subacromial decompression surgery for adults with shoulder pain: a clinical practice guideline.

BMJ 2019 Feb 6;364:l294. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Joint Research, OLVG, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Clinical Question: Do adults with atraumatic shoulder pain for more than 3 months diagnosed as subacromial pain syndrome (SAPS), also labelled as rotator cuff disease, benefit from subacromial decompression surgery? This guideline builds on to two recent high quality trials of shoulder surgery.

Current Practice: SAPS is the common diagnosis for shoulder pain with several first line treatment options, including analgesia, exercises, and injections. Surgeons frequently perform arthroscopic subacromial decompression for prolonged symptoms, with guidelines providing conflicting recommendations. Read More

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 2018 Nov 27:363546518810508. 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

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.

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

Shoulder Arthroplasty in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Population-Based Study Examining Utilization, Adverse Events, Length of Stay, and Cost.

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2018 Jun;47(6)

Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL.

It has been suggested that the utilization of joint arthroplasty in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is decreasing; however, this observation is largely based upon evidence pertaining to lower-extremity joint arthroplasty. It remains unknown if these observed trends also hold true for shoulder arthroplasty. The purpose of this study is to utilize a nationally representative population database in the US to identify trends in the utilization of shoulder arthroplasty among patients with RA. Read More

Long-term results after surgical treatment of subacromial pain syndrome with or without rotator cuff tear.

J Orthop 2018 Sep 17;15(3):757-760. Epub 2018 Mar 17.

Surgical Department, Haraldsplass Deaconess Hospital, Norway.

Purpose: Some studies suggest a common degenerative path might contribute to a range of shoulder diseases involving subacromial pain syndrome and full-thickness rotator cuff tears. One could therefore theorize arthroscopic subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair as interventions at different stages of a degenerative shoulder disease. Few studies have compared long-term outcomes after these two procedures. Read More

J Hand Surg Am 2018 Jun 23. Epub 2018 Jun 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Warren Alpert School of Medicine, Brown University, Providence, RI.

Prolotherapy is a method of treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions whereby a sclerosing agent is injected into an area of tendinosis or osteoarthritis to strengthen and repair painful connective tissue. It is a safe, effective, and relatively inexpensive nonsurgical treatment modality. This article provides a history of prolotherapy, discusses its proposed mechanisms of action, and provides a review of the existing literature on prolotherapy as a treatment for upper extremity pathologies, specifically, hand osteoarthritis, lateral epicondylitis, and rotator cuff disease.
