BACKGROUND: Revision shoulder arthroplasty in the setting of glenoid bone loss poses substantial surgical challenges. This study's purpose was to compare radiographic and clinical results of patients requiring structural iliac crest bone autograft (ICBA) for severe bone loss versus patients with less severe bone loss treated with nonstructural bone allograft (NSBA) in the setting of revision reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RSA). METHODS: A retrospective cohort of 30 patients (70% of the 43 patients who met the inclusion criteria) undergoing revision RSA with ICBA (n = 15) or NSBA (n = 15) between 2007 and 2015 were analyzed at a minimum 2-year follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Patient-based evaluation of health care has been gaining attention in the past 2 decades. The purpose of this study was to evaluate patient satisfaction in a shoulder outpatient clinic and determine which factors impact satisfaction levels. METHODS: Fifty-nine outpatients with shoulder complaints from December 2017 to January 2018 were included. Patient satisfaction was measured using the Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey, and 2 methods of calculation were implemented: top-box and average scores...

BACKGROUND: Latissimus dorsi (LD) and teres major (TM) tendon transfers are effective surgical procedures to improve shoulder abduction and external rotation for children with obstetrical brachial plexus palsy (OBPP). Open pectoralis major (PM) tendon Z-plasty and arthroscopic subscapularis (SS) release are 2 options for the release of internal rotation contractures to enhance muscle transfers. This study compared the functional results of LD and TM tendon transfers with open PM tendon Z-plasty or arthroscopic SS release...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the functional outcomes of bipolar pedicled pectoralis major (PM) transfer to restore elbow flexion. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 29 transfers in 28 patients with a mean age of 31.2 years (range, 5-65 years). The loss of elbow flexion was due to brachial plexus palsy in 24 patients, elbow flexors necrosis in 4, and poliomyelitis in 1. The entire PM muscle was mobilized and fixed proximally to the coracoid process. Intraoperative positioning and postoperative immobilization of the shoulder and the elbow flexed at 60° and 120°, respectively, allowed direct distal fixation of the muscle to the biceps brachii tendon...

BACKGROUND: Anatomic factors associated with static posterior translation of the humeral head with or without glenohumeral osteoarthritis are unknown. We tested the hypothesis that there is an association between glenoid wear, glenoid version, and/or anteroposterior acromial tilt. METHODS: Ninety-nine patients with glenohumeral joint degeneration involving advanced glenoid cartilage wear and/or rotator cuff disease scheduled for anatomic or reverse total shoulder replacement underwent standardized conventional radiographic and computed tomographic shoulder imaging...

BACKGROUND: Lateral collateral ligament (LCL) insufficiency may occur in patients with chronic lateral epicondylitis (LE). We report on 14 consecutive patients with chronic LE and LCL insufficiency. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 14 patients with LE and LCL insufficiency diagnosed between 2006 and 2015. The patients had undergone débridement for LE and ligament reconstruction for LCL insufficiency. The study included 9 men and 5 women with an average age of 53 years (range, 41-69 years)...

BACKGROUND: Nerve growth factor (NGF) plays a key role in osteoarthritic pain and low back pain. Rotator cuff tear (RCT) is often associated with severe shoulder pain. However, the role of NGF in RCT remains to be fully understood. METHODS: Rats were divided into sham and RCT groups. The rotator cuff was harvested from the sham and RCT groups on various days for reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis of Tnfa, Ngf, Il1b, and Cox2 expression. Rotator cuffs from the sham and RCT groups were also harvested at 1 and 14 days for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunohistochemistry to assess NGF protein levels and localization...

BACKGROUND: The Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic (KJOC) score has been used to describe various parameters of throwing shoulder and elbow function for the return to play after a long period of rehabilitation, such as after ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction. No study has yet to identify how scapular dyskinesis (SD) in baseball players affects the KJOC score. This study investigated the relationship of the KJOC score to SD evaluated in collegiate baseball players with and without upper extremity injury...

BACKGROUND: The early diagnosis of suspected periprosthetic low-grade infections in shoulder arthroplasties is important for the outcome of the revision surgical procedures. The aim of this study was to investigate new biomarkers of infection in revision shoulder arthroplasties, taking into account the implant design, patient age, and comorbidities. METHODS: The study included 33 patients with shoulder arthroplasties undergoing revision surgical procedures. Microbiological diagnostic testing was performed in all cases...

BACKGROUND: The major complication and reoperation rates after distal biceps repair are poorly defined. The purpose of this large retrospective cohort study of distal biceps repairs performed by multiple surgeons within a large orthopedic group was to more clearly define the rates and risk factors of clinically impactful major complications and reoperations. METHODS: All distal biceps tendon repairs performed from January 2005 through April 2017 with a minimum 2-month follow-up were identified using Current Procedural Terminology code 24342...

HYPOTHESIS: We evaluated the correlation of preoperative factors with pain after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR). We hypothesized that nonstructural factors, including metrics of psychological well-being and preoperative narcotic use, would correlate with higher pain levels postoperatively and that structural factors, such as tear size, would not be predictive. METHODS: Ninety-three patients were prospectively enrolled and evenly distributed by tear size...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this cadaveric study was to investigate different defined drill trajectories through the radial tuberosity for the placement of a cortical button and their proximity to the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) by using the double-incision technique. METHODS: A total of 10 elbows from 5 fresh entire cadavers were used in this study. Detachment of the distal biceps tendon was performed to simulate its rupture. A standardized double-incision approach was performed, and the radial tuberosity was exposed in full pronation...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to describe the rate and type of complications occurring within 90 days following the Latarjet procedure for anterior glenohumeral instability. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing the Latarjet procedure by fellowship-trained surgeons from a single institution between 2007 and 2016 were included for analysis. Indications for the Latarjet procedure included primary or recurrent anterior instability with clinically significant anterior glenoid bone loss and/or failed prior arthroscopic stabilization...
