Disentangling the percepts of illusory movement and sensory stimulation during tendon vibration in the EEG.

Neuroimage 2021 Jul 27:118431. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Acute Neurorehabilitation Unit (LRNA), Division of Neurology, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV), Lausanne, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Mechanical vibration of muscle tendons in specific frequencies - termed functional proprioceptive stimulation (FPS) - has the ability to induce the illusion of a movement which is congruent with a lengthening of the vibrated tendon and muscle. The majority of previous reports of the brain correlates of this illusion are based on functional neuroimaging. Contrary to the electroencephalogram (EEG) however, such technologies are not suitable for bedside or ambulant use. Read More

Treatment options for massive rotator cuff tears: a narrative review.

Acta Biomed 2021 Jul 26;92(S3):e2021026. Epub 2021 Jul 26.

Clinica Ortopedica - ASUFC - Udine, Italy DAME - University of Udine, Italy.

The treatment of massive rotator cuff tears poses a challenge to orthopedic surgeons. The prevalence of massive rotator cuff tears is 40% of all rotator cuff tears. Compared with smaller tears, massive rotator cuff tears are often complicated by structural failure and poor outcomes and present a higher rate of recurrent tearing after surgical repair. Read More

Arthroscopic Tenotomy of the Long Head of the Biceps Tendon and Section of the Anterior Joint Capsule Produce Moderate Osteoarthritic Changes in an Experimental Sheep Model.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2021 Jul 13;18(14). Epub 2021 Jul 13.

Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, Campus Bio-Medico University, Via Alvaro del Portillo, 200, Trigoria, 00128 Rome, Italy.

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the glenohumeral (GH) joint is a common cause of shoulder pain, resulting in considerable invalidity. Unfortunately, the study of its pathogenesis is challenging. Models of OA are necessary to identify specific targets for therapy and to be able to interfere with the development and evolution of OA. Read More

Uncommon Bilateral Absence of Long Heads of the Biceps Tendons in Twin Sisters: A Report of 2 Cases.

JBJS Case Connect 2021 07 23;11(3). Epub 2021 Jul 23.

Pan Am Clinic, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

We present 2 cases, 45-year-old identical twin sisters, with bilateral congenital absence of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT); 1 twin was symptomatic, while the other was not. Variations of the intra-articular portion of this tendon are widely reported, but there are few reports of cases with absent LHBT. These cases may be of particular interest to radiologists and surgeons because they demonstrate that absent biceps when congenital in nature may not always coincide with symptoms. Read More

Prophylaxis for Heterotopic Ossification Following Distal Biceps Tendon Repair.

Orthopedics 2021 Jul-Aug;44(4):e588-e592. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a possible complication of distal biceps tendon repair (DBTR). Several agents can prevent HO formation, although relatively few studies have investigated prophylaxis specifically after DBTR. The purposes of this study were to survey members of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) to determine (1) what percentage use HO prophylaxis after DBTR; (2) type, dosage, and duration of prophylaxis used; and (3) use of single-incision or double-incision surgical technique.

Proximal hamstring tendon avulsion: state of the art.

J ISAKOS 2021 Jul 20;6(4):237-246. Epub 2020 Nov 20.

Sports Orthopedic Research Center, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Complete proximal hamstring tendon avulsions from the ischial tuberosity, though infrequent, are the most severe type of hamstring muscle injury in the field of sport medicine. These serious injuries are commonly associated with a delayed or even misdiagnosis, despite obvious clinical findings. The published literature favours surgical repair even though the studies represent lower levels of evidence. Read More

Distal Biceps Tendon Tears: Diagnosis and Treatment Algorithm.

JBJS Rev 2021 Jul 14;9(7). Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Unity Health, St. Joseph's Health Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

»: Distal biceps tendon (DBT) tears occur most commonly in middle-aged men after a sudden, forced eccentric contraction of the flexed elbow.

»: An understanding of the multiple risk factors, mechanisms, and pathophysiological causes is essential for proper and timely diagnosis.

»: High clinical suspicion and routine physical examination with appropriate special examination tests, including the hook test, the passive forearm pronation test, the biceps crease interval test, and the bicipital aponeurosis flex test, can help with rapid and accurate diagnosis and guide appropriate and timely management.

Soft Arthroscopic Latarjet Procedure: Technical Note on Biceps Tendon as a Modified Sling for Restoration of Glenohumeral Stability.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Jun 17;10(6):e1531-e1537. Epub 2021 May 17.

Department of Orthopedics & Traumatology, Faculty of Medicine, Menoufia University, Egypt, Shebien El-kom, Menoufia Governorate, Egypt.

As an alternate to sling glenohumeral restabilization mechanism of Latarjet procedure, recent different arthroscopic soft-tissue reconstructive techniques have been described for the management of glenohumeral instability. One of these techniques is trans-subscapularis bony tenodesis of long head of biceps (instead of coracoid graft transfer) to the anteroinferior glenoid. For simplification of the latter technique, the current article reports an alternative arthroscopic technique for management of glenohumeral instability in patients with type V SLAP lesion or poor soft-tissue quality of the anterior capsulolabral complex.

The Flexion Initiation Test and an Evidence-Based Diagnostic Algorithm for Distal Biceps Tendon Tears.

Arthrosc Sports Med Rehabil 2021 Jun 13;3(3):e721-e726. Epub 2021 Mar 13.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, New England Baptist Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was (1) to assess the flexion initiation test's (FIT) ability to detect distal biceps tendon tears (DBTT) in a cohort of consecutive patients presenting with elbow pain and (2) to generate a reliable evidence-based diagnostic algorithm using a combination of both the FIT and hook tests.

Methods: We performed a retrospective review of 125 consecutive patients who presented with elbow pain, all of which had the FIT and hook test performed prior to imaging/further intervention. The integrity of the tendon was determined during surgery or by magnetic resonance imaging. Read More

Abnormal changes in motor cortical maps in humans with spinal cord injury.

J Physiol 2021 Jun 30. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Arms+Hands Lab, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL 60611 and Hines Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Chicago, IL, 60141, USA.

The functional role of motor cortical reorganization following spinal cord injury (SCI) remains largely unknown. Here, we tested motor maps in a hand muscle at rest and during voluntary contraction of the hand with and without voluntary contraction of a proximal arm muscle. Motor maps area in participants with SCI decreased during hand voluntary contraction and further decreased during additional contraction of a proximal arm muscle compared with rest. Read More
