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

Incorporation of the Amniotic Membrane as an Immunomodulatory Design Element in Collagen Scaffolds for Tendon Repair.

ACS Biomater Sci Eng 2018 Dec 19;4(12):4367-4377. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 600 South Mathews Avenue, Urbana, Illinois 61801, United States.

Tendon injuries often require surgical intervention and even then result in poor outcomes due to scar formation and repeated failure. Biomaterial implants offer the potential to address multiple underlying concerns preventing improved tendon repair. Here, we describe modifications to the composition of an anisotropic collagen-glycosaminoglycan (CG) scaffold biomaterial, incorporating amniotic membrane (AM)-derived matrix to alter the inflammatory response and establish conditions for improved regenerative repair.

The lever arm ratio of the rotator cuff to deltoid muscle explains and predicts pseudoparalysis of the shoulder.

Bone Joint J 2018 Dec;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.

The presence of a rotator cuff tear interferes with age-dependent muscle atrophy of intact shoulder muscles. An MRI study with 3 years' follow-up.

Hum Mov Sci 2018 Dec 26;62:161-168. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Orthopaedics, Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands. Electronic address:

Rotator cuff muscle atrophy is frequently studied, but it is unknown whether redistribution of mechanical load in the presence of a rotator cuff tear influence muscle atrophy that is observed in patients. We hypothesized that in the presence of a supraspinatus tear, redistribution of mechanical load towards teres minor and deltoid slows down atrophy of these muscles over time. In this retrospective observational study of 129 patients, we measured the cross-sectional surface-areas on MRI of shoulder muscles in an intact rotator cuff (n = 92) and in a supraspinatus-tear group (n = 37) with a mean follow-up of 3 ± 1.

Current Clinical Recommendations for Use of Platelet-Rich Plasma.

Curr Rev Musculoskelet Med 2018 Dec;11(4):624-634

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Stanford University, 450 Broadway St, Redwood City, CA, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review evaluates current clinical literature on the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), including leukocyte-rich PRP (LR-PRP) and leukocyte-poor PRP (LP-PRP), in order to develop evidence-based recommendations for various musculoskeletal indications.

Recent Findings: Abundant high-quality evidence supports the use of LR-PRP injection for lateral epicondylitis and LP-PRP for osteoarthritis of the knee. Moderate high-quality evidence supports the use of LR-PRP injection for patellar tendinopathy and of PRP injection for plantar fasciitis and donor site pain in patellar tendon graft BTB ACL reconstruction.

Influence of the site of acromioplasty on reduction of the critical shoulder angle (CSA) - an anatomical study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2018 Oct 13;19(1):371. Epub 2018 Oct 13.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Zurich, Balgrist University Hospital, Uniklinik Balgrist, Forchstrasse 340, 8008, Zürich, Switzerland.

Background: A large critical shoulder angle (CSA) >35° is associated with the development of rotator cuff tearing. Lateral acromioplasty (AP) has the theoretical potential to prevent rotator cuff tearing and/ or to reduce the risk of re-tears after repair. It is, however unclear which part of the lateral acromion has to be reduced to obtain the desired CSA. Read More

Genes interconnecting AMPK and TREM-1 and associated microRNAs in rotator cuff tendon injury.

Mol Cell Biochem 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Departments of Clinical & Translational Science and Orthopedic Surgery, Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, NE, 68178, USA.

Fatty infiltration and inflammation delay the healing responses and raise major concerns in the therapeutic management of rotator cuff tendon injuries (RCTI). Our evaluations showed the upregulation of 'metabolic check point' AMPK and inflammatory molecule, TREM-1 from shoulder biceps tendons collected from RCTI subjects. However, the epigenetic regulation of these biomolecules by miRNAs is largely unknown and it is likely that a deeper understanding of the mechanism of action can have therapeutic potential for RCTI.

Medial Subluxation or Dislocation of the Biceps on Magnetic Resonance Arthrography Is Reliably Correlated with Concurrent Subscapularis Full-Thickness Tears Confirmed Arthroscopically.

Biomed Res Int 2018 9;2018:2674061. Epub 2018 Sep 9.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Arthroscopy and Joint Research Institute, Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between biceps medial subluxation/dislocation on the magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) imaging and subscapularis full-thickness tear confirmed arthroscopically. We hypothesized that presence of a biceps medial subluxation or dislocation would strongly indicate a subscapularis full-thickness tear.

Methods: A total of 432 consecutive patients who underwent arthroscopic repair for rotator cuff tears with/without subscapularis tears at our institute were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

Acromioclavicular joint cyst formation in a patient with rotator cuff-tear arthropathy: a rare cause of shoulder discomfort.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Sep 27;2018. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Charite Universitatsmedizin Berlin Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Berlin, Germany.

We report a case of a 77-year-old man who presented to our shoulder department with a soft tissue mass on his right acromioclavicular (AC) joint. Previously attempted puncture aspiration had revealed serous fluid retention which recurred after each of several drainage attempts. Conventional radiography and MRI of the affected shoulder joint demonstrated a progressed cuff-tear arthropathy with an irreparable tear of the supraspinatus tendon, static superior migration of the humeral head, opening of the AC joint capsule and a superior joint-fluid 'eruption' and accumulation called 'Geyser sign'.

Management of the Failed Arthroplasty for Proximal Humerus Fracture.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2019 Jan;27(2):39-49

From the Center for Shoulder, Elbow and Sports Medicine, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY.

A variety of reasons exist for failure of arthroplasty performed for management of proximal humerus fracture. Revision surgery for these failures is complex and has a high likelihood of inferior outcomes compared with primary arthroplasty. Successful management requires consideration of various modes of failure including tuberosity malunion or resorption, rotator cuff deficiency, glenoid arthritis, bone loss, component loosening, stiffness, or infection.

Distal Triceps Speed Bridge Repair.

Arthrosc Tech 2018 Sep 13;7(9):e907-e913. Epub 2018 Aug 13.

Orthopaedic Research of Virginia, Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.

Distal triceps ruptures are uncommon injuries resulting in loss of elbow extension strength and necessitating surgical repair to ensure optimal functional outcome. Traditional fixation techniques using running, locking sutures through the tendon secured through bone tunnels have been shown to poorly restore the anatomic footprint and are mechanically inferior to anatomic repairs. We endorse restoring the anatomic footprint of the distal triceps, similar to the well-researched rotator cuff repair model. 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.
