J Orthop Res 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University, Saint Louis, MO 63110.

Obesity is a primary risk factor for osteoarthritis, and previous studies have shown that dietary content may play an important role in osteoarthritis pathogenesis of cartilage and bone in the knee. Several previous studies have shown that the ratio of ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), ω-6 PUFAs, and saturated fatty acids can significantly influence bone structure and osteoarthritis (OA) progression. However, the influence of obesity or dietary fatty acid content on shoulder OA is not well understood. Read More

Feature Extraction of Shoulder Joint's Voluntary Flexion-Extension Movement Based on Electroencephalography Signals for Power Assistance.

Bioengineering (Basel) 2018 Dec 24;6(1). Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Automation, College of Information Technical Science, Nankai University, Tianjin 300071, China.

Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) has been considered as an effective way to help and support both the disabled rehabilitation and healthy individuals' daily lives to use their brain activity information instead of their bodies. In order to reduce costs and control exoskeleton robots better, we aim to estimate the necessary torque information for a subject from his/her electroencephalography (EEG) signals when using an exoskeleton robot to perform the power assistance of the upper limb without using external torque sensors nor electromyography (EMG) sensors. In this paper, we focus on extracting the motion-relevant EEG signals' features of the shoulder joint, which is the most complex joint in the human's body, to construct a power assistance system using wearable upper limb exoskeleton robots with BMI technology.

Primary synovial osteochondromatosis of the shoulder: a rare cause of shoulder pain.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Nov 28;11(1). Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Orthopaedic Department, Nevill Hall Hospital, Abergavenny, UK.

Synovial osteochondromatosis is a benign neoplastic condition which manifests as multiple cartilaginous or osteocartilaginous nodules within a joint, bursa and tendon sheath. It typically results in pain and stiffness of the affected joint, and is thought to arise as a result of synovial membrane proliferation and metaplasia. We report the diagnosis and management of a 36-year-old man who presented with a long history of shoulder pain, which had been managed conservatively prior to referral to orthopaedics. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging predictors of shoulder instability in adolescents.

Pediatr Radiol 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Pediatric Orthopedics & Scoliosis Center, Rady Children's Hospital San Diego, 3020 Children's Way, MC 5062, San Diego, CA, 92123, USA.

Background: Managing recurrent shoulder instability in an athlete of any age is challenging. The pediatric literature regarding recurrence of instability is difficult to interpret because of the variable treatment protocols and varying ages. The adult literature suggests that bone loss on the humerus, glenoid or both, as detected by CT, has high rates of recurrence following surgical intervention. Read More

Pectoral girdle and forelimb musculoskeletal function in the echidna (): insights into mammalian locomotor evolution.

R Soc Open Sci 2018 Nov 14;5(11):181400. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Museum of Comparative Zoology and Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, 26 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA, USA.

Although evolutionary transformation of the pectoral girdle and forelimb appears to have had a profound impact on mammalian locomotor and ecological diversity, both the sequence of anatomical changes and the functional implications remain unclear. Monotremes can provide insight into an important stage of this evolutionary transformation, due to their phylogenetic position as the sister-group to therian mammals and their mosaic of plesiomorphic and derived features. Here we build a musculoskeletal computer model of the echidna pectoral girdle and forelimb to estimate joint ranges of motion (ROM) and muscle moment arms (MMA)-two fundamental descriptors of biomechanical function.
