Imbalance in Axial-plane Rotator Cuff Fatty Infiltration in Posteriorly Worn Glenoids in Primary Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis: An MRI-based Study.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

M. J. Hartwell, R. E. Harold, P. T. Sweeney, A. L. Seitz, G. Marra, M. D. Saltzman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA.

Background: Fatty infiltration of the rotator cuff evaluated with CT has been associated with asymmetric glenoid wear and humeral head subluxation in patients with glenohumeral arthritis. The relationship between rotator cuff pathologic findings and abnormal glenoid wear plays an important role in determining the optimal surgical management of advanced glenohumeral osteoarthritis. Compared with CT, MRI has increased sensitivity for identifying rotator cuff conditions; therefore, prior studies using CT may have underestimated the association between fatty infiltration of the rotator cuff and abnormal glenoid wear.

The Evolution of the Walch Classification for Primary Glenohumeral Arthritis.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

From New England Baptist Hospital, Boston, MA (Jawa), Boston Sports and Shoulder Center, Waltham, MA (Jawa), and Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA (Shields).

Our understanding of the pathology of and treatment for glenohumeral arthritis (GHA) has grown dramatically in the past few decades. Original observations regarding patterns of glenoid erosion, glenoid retroversion, and posterior humeral head subluxation in patients with primary GHA were documented in the 1980s and early 1990s. In the late 1990s, Walch et al proposed what is now the most widely used classification system to describe the characteristic pathology of GHA. Read More

Cureus 2021 Apr 7;13(4):e14339. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Orthopedics, Maharishi Markandeshwar (Deemed to be University), Ambala, IND.

Introduction Fracture of the clavicle bone is a very common injury owing to its subcutaneous location. Controversy exists about the optimal treatment of midshaft clavicle fractures in the presence of significant displacement and comminution of the fracture.

Shoulder strap fixation of LUCAS-2 to facilitate continuous CPR during non-supine (stair) stretcher transport of OHCAs patients.

Sci Rep 2021 May 10;11(1):9858. Epub 2021 May 10.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Lin-Kou Medical Center, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taoyuan, Taiwan.

Early recognition and rapid initiation of high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are key to maximising chances of achieving successful return of spontaneous circulation in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs), as well as improving patient outcomes both inside and outside hospital. Mechanical chest compression devices such as the LUCAS-2 have been developed to assist rescuers in providing consistent, high-quality compressions, even during transportation. However, providing uninterrupted and effective compressions with LUCAS-2 during transportation down stairwells and in tight spaces in a non-supine position is relatively impossible. Read More

Structural Analysis of Hollow Versus Solid-stemmed Shoulder Implants of Proximal Humeri with Different Bone Qualities.

J Orthop Res 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

School of Biomedical Engineering, Western University, London, ON, Canada.

Stress shielding of the proximal humerus following total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) can promote unfavorable bone remodeling, especially for osteoporotic patients. The objective of this finite element (FE) study was to determine if a hollow, rather than solid, titanium stem can mitigate this effect for healthy, osteopenic, and osteoporotic bone. Using a population-based model of the humerus, representative average healthy, osteopenic, and osteoporotic humerus FE models were created. Read More
