Coracohumeral distance and coracoid overlap as predictors of subscapularis and long head of the biceps injuries.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

São João University Hospital, Porto, Portugal; Porto Medical School, Porto University, Porto, Portugal.

Background: Subscapularis (SS) lesions are often underdiagnosed because of an incomplete understanding of contributing factors but also because of a greater difficulty in SS tear diagnosis with magnetic resonance imaging or physical examination. In this setting, predicting factors can be useful tools in these injuries' management. The goal of this study was to determine the influence of the coracohumeral distance (CHD) and coracoid overlap (CO) in anterior rotator cuff lesions, as well as to determine the CHD and CO values that can accurately predict SS and long head of the biceps (LHB) injuries.

Rotator cable and rotator interval: anatomy, biomechanics and clinical importance.

EFORT Open Rev 2019 Feb 20;4(2):56-62. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Loyola University, Chicago, USA.

The rotator cable and rotator interval are among the most recent topics of interest in current shoulder literature. Most of the research has been published in the last two decades and our understanding about the importance of these anatomical structures has improved with biomechanical studies, which changed the pre- and intra-operative approaches of shoulder surgeons to rotator cuff tears in symptomatic patients.The rotator cable is a thick fibrous bundle that carries the applied forces to the rotator cuff like a 'suspension bridge'.

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

Laser testing for upper extremity proprioceptive deficits following rotator cuff injury: two case reports.

Physiother Theory Pract 2019 Jan 24:1-9. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

a Brooks Rehabilitation , Jacksonville , FL , USA.

Background: Rotator cuff (RTC) dysfunction incidence ranges from 7% to 25% in the general population with a high recurrence rate. RTC musculature plays a significant role in dynamic stability of the glenohumeral joint with damage to these structures associated with proprioceptive impairments. Impaired proprioception has been linked to increased injury risk in other body regions; however, similar relationships with the upper extremity have not been extensively evaluated. Read More

Gene Expression Patterns Analysis in the Supraspinatus Muscle after a Rotator Cuff Tear in a Mouse Model.

Biomed Res Int 2018 23;2018:5859013. Epub 2018 Dec 23.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Konkuk University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Rotator cuff tear is a muscle-tendinous injury representative of various musculoskeletal disorders. In general, rotator cuff tear occurs in the tendon, but it causes unloading of the muscle resulting in muscle degeneration including fatty infiltration. These muscle degenerations lead to muscle weakness, pain, and loss of shoulder function and are well known as important factors for poor functional outcome after rotator cuff repair. Read More

Collagen I: a kingpin for rotator cuff tendon pathology.

Am J Transl Res 2018 15;10(11):3291-3309. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

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

Derangements in tendon matrisome are pathognomonic for musculoskeletal disorders including rotator cuff tendinopathies (RCT). Collagen type-1 accounts for more than 85% of the dry weight of tendon extracellular matrix (ECM). The understanding of basic tendon physiology, organization of ECM, structure and function of component biomolecules of matrisome and the underlying regulatory mechanisms reveal the pathological events associated with RCT.

Surgical Management of Comminuted, Displaced Greater Tuberosity Fractures: A New Technique of Subacromial Spacer on Top of Double-Row Suture Anchor Fixation.

Authors:
Leslie Naggar

Joints 2018 Sep 31;6(3):211-214. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Cabinet Médical, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Arthroscopic treatment of greater tuberosity (GT) fractures has been previously described. Arthroscopy allows identifying and addressing coexisting injuries, such as rotator cuff tears, labrum, or superior labrum anterior and posterior lesions, which are often present. Fracture comminution precludes the use of rigid fracture fixation with screws and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is performed instead. Read More

Association between the Critical Shoulder Angle and Rotator Cuff Tears in Japan.

Acta Med Okayama 2018 Dec;72(6):547-551

Department of Rehabilitation, Machida Orthopaedics, Ino, Kochi 781-2123,

Distinct anatomic variants of the scapula such as the critical shoulder angle (CSA) were found to be associated with rotator cuff tears (RCTs), but it is unclear whether the CSA is a risk factor in Japanese. Here we sought to determine whether the CSA is associated with RCTs in a Japanese population, and whether the CSA is a more useful parameter than the conventionally used parameters. Our RCT group and non-RCT group each consisted of 54 consecutive cases. Read More
