Supraspinatus muscle location changes after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair: a potential source of preoperatively predicting tear patterns.

Open Access J Sports Med 2019 1;10:33-39. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, East Hokkaido Hospital, Kushiro, Hokkaido, Japan,

Purpose: When repairing retracted rotator cuff tears, the tear pattern (eg, crescent-shaped, L-shaped) is best determined intraoperatively by evaluating the mobility of the tendon in multiple directions. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the location of the supraspinatus (SSP) muscle belly on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients undergoing arthroscopic repair of retracted rotator cuff tears. We hypothesized that the location of the rotator cuff muscle would move after tendon repair, and that the perioperative change in muscle position would correlate with the tear pattern. Read More

J Neuroeng Rehabil 2019 Mar 5;16(1):35. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences, Northwestern University, 645 N Michigan Ave, Suite 1100, Chicago, IL, 60611, USA.

Background: Abnormal synergy is a major stroke-related movement impairment that presents as an unintentional contraction of muscles throughout a limb. The flexion synergy, consisting of involuntary flexion coupling of the paretic elbow, wrist, and fingers, is caused by and proportional to the amount of shoulder abduction effort and limits reaching function. A wearable exoskeleton capable of predicting movement intent could augment abduction effort and therefore reduce the negative effects of distal joint flexion synergy. Read More

A musculoskeletal shoulder simulation of moment arms and joint reaction forces after medialization of the supraspinatus footprint in rotator cuff repair.

Comput Methods Biomech Biomed Engin 2019 Mar 5:1-10. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

a Center for Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery , University Medical Center , Cologne , Germany.

A non-anatomical reinsertion of the supraspinatus medially to the original footprint to avoid over-tensioning of the tendon in large and retracted tears is one surgical option in rotator cuff (RC) repair. The purpose of the study was to determine the biomechanical effects on the glenohumeral joint with regard to this surgical technique. A modified musculoskeletal computational shoulder model was used to evaluate the change in moment arms and muscle forces of the RC and the co-contracting muscles and the alteration of the joint reaction forces (compressive and shear forces) after reinsertion of the supraspinatus 5 mm, 10 mm, 15 mm and 20 mm medially to the original footprint.

Electronic address:

Subject- and site-specific modeling techniques greatly improve the accuracy of computational models derived from clinical-resolution quantitative computed tomography (QCT) data. The majority of shoulder finite element (FE) studies use density-modulus relationships developed for alternative anatomical locations. As such, the objectives of this study were to compare the six most commonly used density-modulus relationships in shoulder finite element (FE) studies. Read More

[Trichilemmal carcinoma in a patient with squamous cell skin cancer].

Arkh Patol 2019 ;81(1):31-34

State Research Center for Dermatovenereology and Cosmetology, Ministry of Health of Russia, Moscow, Russia.

Trichilemmal carcinoma is a rare skin tumor that mainly occurs in the elderly (mean age, 71 years) and is localized in the repeatedly sun-exposed areas, most commonly on the face, scalp, neck, and dorsa of the hands. Its differential diagnosis is made with squamous cell skin cancer, clear-cell porocarcinoma, hidradenocarcinoma, and melanoma. The prognosis of trichilemmal carcinoma is most favorable than that of other skin tumors during radical removal. Read More

Diabetic and non-diabetic patients report equal symptom relief after arthroscopic capsular release of frozen shoulder.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2019 Mar-Apr;10(2):261-264. Epub 2018 May 19.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Regional Hospital Randers, Denmark.

Background: Frozen shoulder is a painful joint disease. Patients with diabetes seem to have worse clinical symptoms and surgery in this patient population is believed to be more common.The objective postoperative evaluation indicates inferior results when surgically treating diabetics, but no previous studies have investigated exclusively the subjective patient satisfaction with arthroscopic capsular release.

Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics, Medway NHS Foundation Trust, Windmill Road, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 5NY, UK.

Rotator cuff tears are a common cause for pain and reduced function. Tears of the tendons of the cuff can be a result of a degenerative process or as a consequence of trauma. Management of cuff tears are surrounded by controversy from indications for surgical management to rehabilitation protocol post-surgical repair. Read More

Mid-term clinical outcome following rotator cuff repair using all-suture anchors.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2019 Mar-Apr;10(2):241-243. Epub 2018 Feb 26.

University of Greenwich, London Bridge Hospital, London, England, United Kingdom.

Background: Symptomatic rotator cuff tears can cause significant pain and functional disturbance, with associated financial ramifications. Non-surgical management should always be considered initially, however if recalcitrant to these measures surgical intervention may involve open, arthroscopic-assisted mini-open or arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs. The use of trans-osseous sutures and suture anchors has been reported with good results, with no significant differences if the repair remains intact or recurrent tears occur. Read More

Skeletal morphology of the early Paleocene plesiadapiform Torrejonia wilsoni (Euarchonta, Palaechthonidae).

J Hum Evol 2019 Mar 11;128:76-92. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Anthropology, Yale University, P. O. Box 208277, New Haven, CT 06520, USA; Division of Vertebrate Paleontology, Peabody Museum of Natural History, New Haven, CT 06520, USA.

Plesiadapiforms, like other Paleogene mammals, are known mostly from fossil teeth and jaw fragments. The several families of plesiadapiforms known from partial skeletons have all been reconstructed as arborealists, but differences in postcranial morphology among these taxa indicate a diversity of positional behaviors. Here we provide the first detailed descriptions and comparisons of a dentally associated partial skeleton (NMMNH P-54500) and of the most complete dentary with anterior teeth (NMMNH P-71598) pertaining to Torrejonia wilsoni, from the early Paleocene (late Torrejonian To3 interval zone) of the Nacimiento Formation, San Juan Basin, New Mexico, USA.
