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.

Pectoralis major tendon transfer for recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation after primary surgery in an elderly patient: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(5):e14264

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Soonchunhyang University Hospital Cheonan, Cheonan, Korea.

Rationale: Adequate stability of traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation without any obvious damage to the anterior capsulolabral structure in elderly patients can be achieved by treating the associated rotator cuff injuries. However, in case of recurrent shoulder dislocation despite rotator cuff repair, the repaired rotator cuff may be weakened or reruptured and is often impossible to repair again. Therefore, the role of the rotator cuff as a shoulder stabilizer cannot be expected. Read More

The lever arm ratio of the rotator cuff to deltoid muscle explains and predicts pseudoparalysis of the shoulder: the Shoulder Abduction Moment index.

Bone Joint J 2018 12;100-B(12):1600-1608

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Zurich, Balgrist University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland; Laboratory for Orthopaedic Biomechanics, ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Aims: In patients with a rotator cuff tear, tear pattern and tendon involvement are known risk factors for the development of pseudoparalysis of the shoulder. It remains unclear, however, why similar tears often have very different functional consequences. The present study hypothesizes that individual shoulder anatomy, specifically the moment arms (MAs) of the rotator cuff (RC) and the deltoid muscle, as well as their relative recruitment during shoulder abduction, plays a central role in pseudoparalysis.
