All-Arthroscopic Long Head of the Biceps Transfer: An Optional Technique for Soft-Tissue Biceps Tenodesis.

Arthrosc Tech 2020 May 10;9(5):e611-e615. Epub 2020 Apr 10.

Department of Orthopaedics, Faculty of Medicine, Thammasat University, Pathumthani, Thailand.

Proximal tendinopathy of the long head of the biceps (LHB) is a common shoulder problem that requires surgical intervention, especially in patients with concomitant rotator cuff tears. The comparative results of biceps tenotomy and biceps tenodesis are still doubtful; both techniques show good to excellent results in terms of postoperative pain and functional outcomes. The described technique-all-arthroscopic LHB transfer-is an optional biceps tenodesis technique using all-arthroscopic soft-tissue tenodesis and arthroscopic suturing of the LHB to the short head of the biceps and coracoacromial ligament combined with release of the LHB from the bicipital groove.

Editorial Commentary: Is Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Shoulder Ever Appropriate in Evaluating Patients With Calcific Tendinopathy of the Rotator Cuff?

Arthroscopy 2020 04;36(4):991-992

Houston, Texas.

Calcific tendinopathy of the rotator cuff is a common pathology that often presents with clinical symptoms simulating a rotator cuff tear. The reported incidence of rotator cuff tear in the setting of calcific tendinopathy varies widely; however, the reported incidence of full-thickness rotator cuff tear on imaging in calcific tendinopathy is consistently low (<5%). In patients with symptomatic calcific tendinopathy, initial conservative management followed by minimally invasive treatments should be employed prior to performing shoulder magnetic resonance imaging to assess for a rotator cuff tear.

Influenza Vaccination Is Not Associated with Increased Number of Visits for Shoulder Pain.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2020 Mar 2. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

A. I. Gonzalez, J. T. P. Kortlever, M. G. Moore, D. C. Ring, Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care, Dell Medical School - The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA.

Background: Shoulder injury from vaccination was approved for automatic compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP)-a federal government program started in 1988 to shield the manufacturers of childhood vaccines from liability. The approval was made on the basis of case reports rather than experimental evidence. This, combined with the addition of influenza vaccination to the VICP in 2005 (which broadened coverage to include adults) and other social factors, was associated with a rapid rise in the number of claims of shoulder injury from vaccination over the last decade, which now account for more than half of all claims to the VICP.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Treatment in Upper Limb Diseases: A Systematic Review.

J Clin Med 2020 Feb 6;9(2). Epub 2020 Feb 6.

Department of General Surgery and Medical Surgical Specialties, Section of Orthopedics and Traumatology, A.O.U. Policlinico-Vittorio Emanuele, University of Catania, 95123 Catania, Italy.

Background Rotator cuff tendinopathy (RCT), subacromial impingement (SAIS), and medial (MEP) and lateral (LEP) epicondylitis are the most common causes of upper limb pain caused by microtrauma and degeneration. There are several therapeutic choices to manage these disorders: extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has become a valuable option.

Methods: A systematic review of two electronic medical databases was performed by two independent authors, using the following inclusion criteria: RCT, SAIS, MEP, and LEP, ESWT therapy without surgical treatment, with symptoms duration more than 2 months, and at least 6 months of follow-up.
