Arthroscopy 2021 09 20;37(9):2769-2779. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Shoulder & Elbow Clinic, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Myongji Hospital, Goyang-si, Korea. Electronic address:

Purpose: To compare clinical and radiographic results of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) with biceps rerouting (BR) and those of conventional repair for semirigid, large-to-massive rotator cuff tear.

Methods: We prospectively collected data of 111 patients who underwent either ARCR + BR (n = 59, group 1) or only ARCR (n = 52, group 2) for semirigid, large-to-massive rotator cuff tear between January 2016 and December 2018. We comparatively analyzed both groups with respect to preoperative factors including concomitant lesions of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT). Read More

Neuromodulation 2020 Aug 13;23(6):812-818. Epub 2020 Jan 13.

International Spine Pain & Performance Center, Washington, DC, USA.

Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of axillary peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) on pain reduction in patients with chronic shoulder pain. Chronic shoulder pain was defined as pain greater than six months originating from any of the following and not the result of a stroke: subacromial impingement syndrome/rotator cuff pathology, glenohumeral joint arthritis, acromioclavicular joint arthritis, adhesive capsulitis, or biceps tendinopathy.

Materials And Methods: Eight adult patients with chronic shoulder pain, as defined above, who either did not respond to surgical intervention or who were deemed not ideal surgical candidates underwent permanent axillary PNS therapy. Read More

Reliability of the Instability Severity Index Score as a Predictor of Recurrence after Arthroscopic Anterior Capsulolabral Reconstruction: A Multicenter Retrospective Study.

Clin Orthop Surg 2019 Dec 12;11(4):445-452. Epub 2019 Nov 12.

Shoulder and Elbow Clinic, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kyung Hee University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Although the instability severity index score (ISIS) is widely used to predict recurrence after arthroscopic anterior instability surgery, its reliability, especially on the weightings and cutoff values, is questionable. The goal of the current retrospective study was to investigate recurrence after arthroscopic capsulolabral reconstruction to evaluate whether each domain of the ISIS has the appropriate predictive power for recurrence by using logistic regression analyses with odds ratios (ORs).

Methods: This study included 120 consecutive patients who underwent arthroscopic capsulolabral reconstruction between 2004 and 2016. Read More

Is there a relation between rotator cuff injury and core stability?

J Back Musculoskelet Rehabil 2019 ;32(3):445-452

School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, Pamukkale University, Denizli, Turkey.

Background: Strong core stabilization not only minimizes the load on the vertebral column, but also improves strength and endurance of peripheral joints, and enables the energy transfer to distal segments. Despite the current interest surrounding core stability, none of the studies investigated the effect of core stability on the formation of rotator cuff tear or healing after repair.

Objective: To determine the relationship between core stability and upper extremity functional performance in patients who underwent rotator cuff repair surgery and to compare those with healthy subjects of similar age. Read More

Outcomes of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with muscle advancement for massive rotator cuff tears.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2019 Mar 20;28(3):445-452. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Graduate School of Biomedical & Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, Hiroshima, Japan.

Background: We performed arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) combined with miniopen supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscle advancement for massive rotator cuff tears (RCTs) to decrease tension at the repair site with the goal of reduction of the failure rate. We evaluated the clinical outcomes and failure rate after this procedure.

Methods: This study included 47 patients diagnosed with chronic massive RCTs between October 2010 and March 2015. Read More

Comparative Effectiveness of Suprascapular Nerve Block in the Relief of Acute Post-Operative Shoulder Pain: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Pain Physician 2016 Sep-Oct;19(7):445-56

Department of Anesthesiology, National Taiwan University Hospital and National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: The suprascapular nerve accounts for 70% of shoulder sensory innervations, and suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) has been shown to be effective in the relief of chronic shoulder pain including rotator cuff tendinitis, subdeltoid impingement syndrome, and adhesive capsulitis. However, this remains inconclusive for patients undergoing surgery. The present meta-analysis aimed to explore the effectiveness of SSNB for relieving acute post-operative shoulder pain. Read More

Subluxations and dislocations of the tendon of the long head of the biceps.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 1998 Mar-Apr;7(2):100-8

Clinique de Chirurgie Orthopédique Emilie de Vialar, Lyon, France.

Seventy-one cases of subluxation or dislocation of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHB) were retrospectively evaluated. Subluxation was observed in 25 (35%) cases combined with partial tearing of the subscapularis tendon and in 70% with tears of the supraspinatus tendon. Dislocation was defined as a permanent loss of contact between the tendon and the intertubercular groove; it was observed in 46 (65%) cases. Read More

Total shoulder replacement.

Orthop Clin North Am 1987 Jul;18(3):445-53

Section of Orthopedic Surgery, Wake Forest University Medical Center, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

In total shoulder replacement the result is highly dependent upon the integrity or reconstructability of the muscles, tendons, and capsule, as well as the experience of the surgeon. Stability and function of an unconstrained implant are a result of the interrelationship of critical factors such as humeral length, humeral and glenoid version, appropriate abductor tension, rotator cuff integrity, and capsular reconstruction. If these factors are not present and preserved, they must be reconstructed. Read More
