No Strength Differences Despite Greater Posterior Rotator Cuff Intramuscular Fat in Patients with Eccentric Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2022 Jun 2. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA.

Background: When nonoperative measures do not alleviate the symptoms of glenohumeral osteoarthritis (OA), patients with advanced OA primarily are treated with anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). It is unknown why TSAs performed in patients with eccentric (asymmetric glenoid wear) compared with concentric (symmetric glenoid wear) deformities exhibit higher failure rates, despite surgical advances. Persistent disruption of the posterior-to-anterior rotator cuff (RC) force couple resulting from posterior RC intramuscular degeneration in patients with eccentric deformities could impair external rotation strength and may contribute to eventual TSA failure.

Comparing the Results of External Rotational Humeral Osteotomy in Older Children to the Mod Quad and Triangle Tilt Procedures in Adults with Obstetric Brachial Plexus Injury.

Eplasty 2022 8;22:e2. Epub 2022 Feb 8.

Texas Nerve and Paralysis Institute, Houston, Texas.

Background: External Rotational Humeral osteotomy is used to address the external rotation deficit in older children with obstetric brachial plexus Injury (OBPI). Although this procedure improves the cosmetic effect of shoulder subluxation, it has no effect on the underlying structural (glenohumeral deformity and scapular elevation and rotation) and functional problems. In this study, improvements in glenohumeral joint alignment; scapular hypoplasia, elevation, and rotation (SHEAR) deformity; and upper extremity functional movements were demonstrated in adult patients with OBPI 1 year after the mod Quad and/or triangle tilt surgeries.

Tendon transfers for massive rotator cuff tears.

Antonio Cartucho

EFORT Open Rev 2022 May 31;7(6):404-413. Epub 2022 May 31.

Shoulder and Elbow Unit, Hospital Cuf Descobertas, Lisbon, Portugal.

Massive rotator cuff tears (MRCTs) present a particular challenge due to high rates of retear that can range from 18 to 94%, failure of healing after repair, and potential for irreparability. Management of MRCTs must take into consideration the patient's characteristics, clinical examamination and expectation, number and quality of muscle tendons units involved. Conservative treatment, arthroscopic long head of the biceps tenotomy, cuff debridement, partial repair, and superior capsule reconstruction are viable solutions to treat selected patients.

Biomechanical analysis of anterior stability after 15% glenoid bone loss: comparison of Bankart repair, dynamic anterior stabilization, dynamic anterior stabilization with Bankart repair, and Latarjet.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Shoulder and Elbow Division, Sports Medicine Institute, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Dynamic anterior shoulder stabilization (DAS) with Bankart repair is a recently described stabilization technique thought to be more robust than an isolated Bankart repair while avoiding many coracoid transfer-related complications and technical demands. DAS involves transfer of the long head biceps through a subscapularis split to the anterior glenoid to create a sling effect. We hypothesize that DAS with Bankart repair will restore anterior stability in a human-cadaveric model with subcritical (15%) glenoid bone loss. Read More
