Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the body mistakenly attacks its own joints, leading to pain in the affected areas. The symptoms of RA differ from those of other types of arthritis, so there are special requirements for its diagnosis and treatment.
Medial epicondylitis (ME) is a pathological condition that arises in laborers and athletes secondary to repetitive wrist flexion and forearm pronation causing degeneration of the common flexor tendon. Although nonoperative management has demonstrated high rates of success, no standardized surgical technique has been established for situations when operative management is indicated.
Patients who underwent arthroscopy prior to total shoulder arthroplasty had a greater risk of periprosthetic joint infection, according to results presented at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting.
Arthritis in the AC joint is a most common cause of shoulder pain in adults. Arthritis here usually develops when the smooth cartilage between your scapula and collar bone wears down, becoming thin and rough. This can cause pain and inflammation in the joint when the end of your bones rub against each other.
Shoulder surgery can potentially restore pain-free range of motion and full function to a damaged shoulder joint. Surgery is a treatment for a variety of conditions in your shoulder joint. These include rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocations, and shoulder separations.
Total Elbow Arthroplasty Gives Good Functional Outcome in Distal Humerus Fracture with Pre-existing Chronic Elbow Dislocation
Distal humerus fracture with concomitant chronic elbow dislocation is difficult to manage by open reduction and internal fixation, while total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is an effective treatment for acute fracture or failed internal fixation of distal humerus fracture in elderly patients with osteoporosis
Results of Arthroscopic Revision Rotator Cuff Repair for Failed Open or Arthroscopic Repair: A Prospective Multicenter Study on 100 Cases
To investigate results after arthroscopic revision RCR. We hypothesized that (1) arthroscopic revision RCR would lead to improved outcomes, (2) the clinical results would be dependent on tendon integrity and (3) tear pattern, tendon involvement, and repair technique would influence clinical and structural results.
Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, occurs when inflammation and scar tissue invade the shoulder joint. It can start with inflammation of the joint that leads to scarring, or in some cases the scarring happens with little inflammation.
Stiffness after elbow injuries can severely limit daily life. If adequate conservative treatment does not result in satisfactory improvement of elbow function, surgical intervention should be considered. Whether an open or arthroscopic procedure is preferable is still a topic of debate and a systematic review of functional outcomes is lacking.
The shoulder joint is comprised of the socket, which looks like a golf tee, and the upper part of the arm, the humeral head, which looks like a golf ball. Injury to shoulder ligaments and labrum can often render the shoulder joint unstable.
