Patients aged 80 years and older had low rates of perioperative mortality and reoperation after anatomic and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, according to results published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
There are a number of issues that can cause shoulder pain, including osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, fractures, rheumatoid arthritis or other inflammatory disorders, or osteonecrosis which impacts blood flow to the humerus.
Long periods of physical work involving positioning the arms over the shoulder and excessive load on the shoulders are common direct causes of shoulder pain.
Elbow hemiarthroplasty and total elbow arthroplasty provided a similar functional outcome for unreconstructable distal humeral fractures in patients aged 60 years or older: a multicenter randomized controlled trial
Semiconstrained total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is an established treatment for elderly patients with distal humeral fractures not amenable to stable internal fixation (unreconstructable). In recent years, there has been increasing interest in elbow hemiarthroplasty (EHA), a treatment option which does not entail restrictions in weight-bearing as opposed to TEA. These two treatments have not been compared in a randomized controlled trial (RCT). The aim of this study was to compare the functional outcome of EHA and TEA for the treatment of unreconstructable distal humeral fractures in elderly patients.
Young Collision Athletes have High Rate of Return to Play and Good Clinical Outcomes Following Open Latarjet Procedure
The purpose of this study was to evaluate return to play (RTP), clinical outcomes and recurrence rates in collision athletes 20 years of age and younger who underwent open Latarjet for anterior shoulder instability.
When something compresses or pinches a nerve in the shoulder, a person may experience pain, numbness, or tingling. Pinched nerves typically heal without treatment.
Results showed the optimal observed outcome after anterior shoulder instability surgery included minimal postoperative pain, absence of recurrent instability and osteoarthritis, low revision rates and increased range of motion.
Every fracture is different. So it's important to work closely with your healthcare provider and physical therapist to design a clavicle fracture rehabilitation program that is specific to your injury, fitness level, and lifestyle.
Patients with shoulder instability who failed primary posterior labral repair had lower acromial tilt and higher posterior acromial height than patients with successful primary repair, according to results presented here.
Published results showed preoperative grip strength positively correlated with shoulder strength and function after reverse shoulder arthroplasty and may work as a prediction tool for outcomes in these patients.
