PURPOSE: To assess the ability of 3-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, 1.5 and 3 tesla [T]) to quantify glenoid bone loss in a cadaveric model compared with the current gold standard, 3D computed tomography (CT). METHODS: Six cadaveric shoulders were used to create a bone loss model, leaving the surrounding soft tissues intact. The anteroposterior (AP) dimension of the glenoid was measured at the glenoid equator and after soft tissue layer closure the specimen underwent scanning (CT, 1...

Muscle atrophy has been established as a predictor of failure after rotator cuff repair. Traditionally, preoperative magnetic resonance imaging has been used as a baseline for subsequent comparison. Use of a preoperative baseline may overestimate the degree of atrophy present. In addition, postoperative progression of atrophy correlates with the integrity of the tendon.

Rotator cuff disease remains a complex clinical problem with significant variation in pathology, clinical presentation, and management options. Functionally, humeral head depression is critical in restoring or maintaining arm elevation, and the shoulder superior capsule serves in this important function. Could disruption of the shoulder superior capsule be the "essential lesion" of rotator cuff disease? Possibly, but many questions remain unanswered, and substantial scientific evidence is required before we can assert with certainty that disruption of the superior capsule with resultant superior instability of the humeral head is the essential lesion of rotator cuff disease...

Idiopathic adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder is a relatively common condition that results in pain and loss of motion due to capsular thickening and fibrosis. Most cases are successfully treated with conservative management including physical therapy and intra-articular steroid injections. If conservative management fails, arthroscopic capsular release allows precise release of thickened capsular tissue with a lower risk of complications and less soft-tissue trauma than manipulation under anesthesia alone...

The preoperative assessment of anterior glenoid bone loss is a critical step in surgical planning for patients with recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability. The structural integrity of the glenoid has been identified as one of the most important factors influencing the success of operative repair. The currently accepted gold standard for glenoid structural assessment among most orthopaedic surgeons is the use of 3-dimensional reconstructed computed tomography images with the humeral head digitally subtracted, yielding an en face sagittal oblique view of the glenoid...

Bone reconstruction for management of glenohumeral instability to reduce postoperative recurrence rates is increasingly emphasized in our literature. Unfortunately, significant complication rates are associated with these procedures, particularly in the United States where training in bony glenoid reconstruction may be limited. The alternative of early intervention, specifically surgical treatment of first-time shoulder dislocation, could result in glenoid bone preservation and overall improvement in the results of soft-tissue stabilization procedures...

BACKGROUND: It has been reported that arthroscopic shoulder stabilization yields higher rates of failure in contact or collision athletes as compared with open shoulder stabilization; however, this is largely based upon studies that do not employ modern, evidence-based surgical indications and techniques for arthroscopic shoulder stabilization. PURPOSE: To (1) determine the pooled failure rate across all studies reporting failure after primary arthroscopic shoulder stabilization for anterior shoulder instability in contact or collision athletes and (2) stratify failure rates according to studies that use evidence-based surgical indications and techniques...

BACKGROUND: Long-term studies of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction suggest that normal stability is not restored in the majority of patients. The Achilles tendon allograft is frequently utilized, although recently, the quadriceps tendon has been introduced as an alternative option due to its size and high patellar bone density. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical strength of PCL reconstructions using a quadriceps versus an Achilles allograft...

BACKGROUND: Outcomes assessments after superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) tear/repair are highly varied, making it difficult to draw comparisons across the literature. This study examined the inconsistency in outcomes reporting in the SLAP tear literature. We hypothesize that there is significant variability in outcomes reporting and that although most studies may report return to play, time to return reporting will be highly variable. METHODS: The PubMed, Medline, Scopus, and Embase databases were systematically reviewed for studies from January 2000 to December 2014 reporting outcomes after SLAP tear/repair...

BACKGROUND: Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction (UCLR) has become a common procedure among Major League Baseball (MLB) pitchers. It is unclear if a limit on innings pitched after UCLR should be instituted to prevent revision UCLR. HYPOTHESIS: Number of innings pitched and number of pitches thrown after UCLR will not affect whether a pitcher requires a revision UCLR. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study. METHODS: All MLB pitchers between 1974 and 2015 who pitched at least 1 full season after UCLR were included in this study...

The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) is a vital structure to the overhead athlete, especially the baseball pitcher. For reasons not completely understood, UCL injuries have become increasingly more common in major league baseball (MLB) pitchers over the past 10 years. UCL reconstruction (UCLR) is the current gold standard of treatment for these injuries in MLB pitchers who wish to return to sport (RTS) at a high level and who have failed a course of non-operative treatment. Results following UCLR in MLB pitchers have been encouraging, with multiple RTS rates now cited at greater than 80%...

BACKGROUND: The management of young patients with glenohumeral arthritis is controversial. Resurfacing of the glenoid with biologic interposition and reaming of the glenoid have been suggested as potential treatment options. The goal of this study was to determine the change in glenohumeral contact pressures in interposition arthroplasty, as well as glenoid reaming in an arthritis model. We hypothesized that interposition with meniscal allograft will lead to the best normalization of contact pressure throughout the glenohumeral range of motion...

BACKGROUND: The rate of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is rising, which has an impact on health care expenditure. One avenue to mitigate cost is outpatient TSA. There are currently no published reports of this practice. In this study, we determine the 30-day adverse event and readmission rates after outpatient TSA and compare these rates with inpatient TSA. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study using a population database in the United States was undertaken. Patients who underwent primary TSA between 2005 and 2014 were identified and divided into 2 cohorts based on length of stay (LOS): outpatient TSA (LOS 0 days) and inpatient TSA (LOS >0 days)...

Hip and knee dislocations are not uncommon but simultaneous ipsilateral dislocation of the hip and knee joint is rare; consequently, there is an inadequate amount of literature on the subject. We identified only 11 such cases reported in English literature. In the present report, we describe the case of a 23-year-old male patient who presented with ipsilateral hip and knee dislocation on the right side after being involved in a road traffic accident. The hip dislocation was associated with a posterior wall acetabular fracture...
