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

Cross-talk between shoulder and neck pain: an imaging study of association between rotator cuff tendon tears and cervical foraminal stenosis.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(36):e12247

Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey.

Rotator cuff tendon tears are prevalent in patients with shoulder pain, the third most common musculoskeletal complaint. As shoulders are largely innervated by cervical nerves, it seems possible that rotator cuff pathology could have an association with cervical spine disorders, although few studies have investigated this possibility. This study aimed to explore the association between rotator cuff tendon tears and cervical radiculopathy (at C5 and C6 levels) in the shoulder pain population. Read More

A Large Size Lipoma at Spinoglenoid Notch Mimicked Traumatic Rotator Cuff Tear.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Jun;23(2):267-269

* Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Myongji Hospital, Goyang, Korea.

Herein, we report a large lipoma at the spinoglenoid notch that mimicked a rotator cuff tear, which occurred in a 61-year-old male farmer. Weakness and pain in the shoulder started abruptly after hard labor, and our first impression was a traumatic rotator cuff tear; however, there was no tear on MRI, and complete marginal excision of a large lipoma at the spinoglenoid notch relieved the symptoms completely at a postoperative three-month follow-up visit. We believe that certain activities such as forceful shoulder abduction may have caused the sudden onset of suprascapular neuropathy in the loosely compressed suprascapular nerve by the lipoma.
