An unwelcome introduction to shoulder bursitis, a painful inflammation in the joint most often brought on by overuse or injury. The wear and tear of daily life can make this a chronic condition, too.
Efficacy and safety of monopolar versus bipolar radial head arthroplasty: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Radial head replacement is the main line of treating complex unstable elbow injuries. Based on polarity, radial head prostheses are either monopolar or bipolar. The difference between both designs in patients’ clinical outcomes and postoperative complications is not yet clear.
Rotator cuff repair can be used to reverse increased glenohumeral joint load, according to a new study.
A discovery by a multi-institutional team of researchers and engineers about how tendon and bone attach in the shoulder joint has uncovered previously unsuspected engineering strategies for attaching dissimilar materials. The discovery also sheds new light on how the rotator cuff functions and on why rotator cuff repairs fail so frequently.
For starters, "good" posture occurs when the muscles of the body support the skeleton in an alignment that is both stable and energy efficient.
Open fractures about the elbow are an infrequent but complex injury with limited existing literature. The aims of the study were to review: the treatment strategies of open elbows fractures, functional outcome and complication rates associated with the injury and correlate the outcome with the topography of fracture.
Dr. Paul Cagle and Dr. Brad Parsons answer ICJR’s questions about their study evaluating long-term survivorship in patients with glenohumeral osteoarthritis who were younger than age 60 at the time of total shoulder arthroplasty.
Shoulder blade pain doesn't always have an obvious cause. It can be a symptom of something serious like a heart attack or lung cancer. Or maybe you slept on it wrong or have poor posture at the computer.
When a patient initially presents with multiple shoulder instability events, nonoperative treatment will most likely not be successful in treating their traumatic anterior shoulder instability, a new study finds.
When you run, you know to hold your chest up and proud, keep your spine long and tall, and your shoulders pulled back. But how often do you think about your posture when you’re sitting?
