Based on our experiences, we found that a kind of elbow injury is characterized by an olecranon fracture accompanied by elbow joint posterior dislocation with the proximal radioulnar joint intact.
Clinical and functional outcome after partial or total claviculectomy without reconstruction for oncological causes
In order to achieve clear margins of rare malignant clavicular neoplasms, claviculectomy may become necessary. This study aimed at reviewing clinical, functional and oncological outcome following partial or total claviculectomy without reconstruction.
A study that specifically looked at return to racket sports, not sports in general, in patients who underwent anatomic total shoulder or reverse shoulder arthroplasty showed a 79% return to racket sports by 12-month follow-up.
While multiple clinical and cadaveric studies have validated the use of computed tomography (CT) to detect traumatic arthrotomies about the knee, other studies have called into question whether the use of CT to detect traumatic arthrotomy is applicable to the elbow.
Causes of shoulder pain and weakness can vary in both younger and older people. You might experience minor "clicks" and aches or have persistent, debilitating pain and severe restriction of motion.
