Calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder: clinical perspectives into the mechanisms, pathogenesis, and treatment.

Orthop Res Rev 2018 3;10:63-72. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Milan,

Calcific tendinopathy (CT) of the shoulder is a common, painful condition characterized by the presence of calcium deposits in the rotator cuff tendons. Current theories indicate that CT may be the result of a cell-mediated process in which, after a stage of calcium deposition, calcifications are spontaneously resorbed. However, in a minority of cases, this self-healing process is somehow disrupted, resulting in symptoms. Read More

Connect Tissue Res 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

d Department of Orthopaedic Surgery , School of Medicine and Gyeongsang National University Changwon Hospital , Changwon , Republic of Korea.

Purpose: Neuronal theory regarding rotator cuff degeneration has developed from the findings that glutamate, an amino acid and an excitatory neurotransmitter, is present in increased concentrations in tendon tissues with tendinopathy and that glutamate induces cell death in fibroblasts of origin in rat supraspinatus tendon. The purpose of the current study was to determine whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has cytoprotective effects against glutamate-induced fibroblast death.

Materials And Methods: Primary cultured fibroblasts were obtained from rat supraspinatus tendons. Read More

Platelet-rich plasma: myth or reality?

Radiologia 2018 Nov - Dec;60(6):465-475. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Sección de Radiología Musculoesquelética, Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital Universitario Virgen de las Nieves, Granada, España.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a preparation for therapeutic purposes that is increasingly accepted for various musculoskeletal disorders, due to its theoretical potential to repair tissues with poor healing capacity. Several randomised clinical trials have investigated the capacity of PRP to repair tendons, ligaments, muscles and cartilage, and to date there is level 1a evidence to support its use for lateral epicondylitis, osteoarthritis of the knee, plantar fasciitis and rotator cuff tendinopathy; and level 1b for patellar tendinopathy and osteoarthritis of the hip. Retrospective cohort studies and case series describe promising results with PRP for treating other musculoskeletal disorders. Read More

Rotator cuff tear characteristics: how comparable are the pre-operative MRI findings with intra-operative measurements following debridement during arthroscopic repair?

Int Orthop 2018 Aug 29. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, School of Medicine, Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Purpose: Magnetic resonance (MRI) is a valuable imaging method which can detect pre-operative rotator cuff tear characteristics accurately. However, tendon degeneration almost always necessitates a certain amount of debridement during arthroscopic repair, which alters tear size and shape. The aim of this study is to question the accuracy of the pre-operative tear size and classification in MRI and its relation to the tear size and type of the debrided tendon during arthroscopic repair.

Fc receptor-like 3 (-169T>C) polymorphism increases the risk of tendinopathy in volleyball athletes: a case control study.

BMC Med Genet 2018 Jul 18;19(1):119. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Research Division, National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedics, Avenida Brasil, 500, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 20940-070, Brazil.

Background: Tendinopathy pathogenesis is associated with inflammation. Regulatory T (Treg) cells contribute to early tissue repair through an anti-inflammatory action, with the forkhead box P3 (FOXP3) transcription factor being essential for Treg function, and the FC-receptor-like 3 (FCRL3) possibly negatively regulating Treg function. FCRL3 -169T>C and FOXP3 -2383C>T polymorphisms are located near elements that regulate respective genes expression, thus it was deemed relevant to evaluate these polymorphisms as risk factors for tendinopathy development in athletes.

Editorial Commentary: Hype, Hope and Everything in Between. What Produces the Real Effect for Blood-derived Products Including Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Arthroscopy 2018 Jun;34(6):1976-1978

Vail, Colorado (R.F.L.).

Biological approaches have a promising future in the orthopaedic field because of their potential benefits that include their minimal invasiveness, potential for accelerated healing, and promise for rapid recovery. However, as the initial hype for these therapies starts to fade, it should be replaced by solid basic and clinical science research to tailor each compound to a determined patient/pathology. Blood contains several products that can be both beneficial and detrimental for every specific tissue, and therefore a one-fits-all approach should be avoided. Read More
