INTRODUCTION: For any surgery in the upper extremity that does not involve the shoulder, a supraclavicular block is preferred, as it is a safe procedure associated with rapid onset and reliable anaesthesia. Although ropivacaine has been extensively studied for epidural anaesthesia, very few reports exist on its use in supraclavicular brachial plexus block. AIM: This study was conducted to investigate and compare the effectiveness of supraclavicular brachial plexus anaesthesia with two different concentrations of ropivacaine (0...

Axillary nerve injury is a risk of the deltopectoral approach to the proximal humerus. The anterior motor branch is potentially vulnerable during subdeltoid dissection. Insertion of the pectoralis major tendon is an easily identifiable landmark on the humerus. This anatomical study explored whether the superior aspect of the pectoralis major tendon is a useful landmark for localizing the anterior motor branch of the axillary nerve as it travels under the lateral and anterior deltoid muscle. A total of 30 fresh-frozen human bilateral cadaveric upper extremities were examined...

The aim of this study is to translate and cross-culturally adapt the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) for the Chinese language, and to evaluate its psychometric properties. The SPADI was translated and cross-culturally adapted for the Chinese language according to established guidelines. Participants completed the SPADI questionnaire, a visual analogue scale (VAS), and the 36-item short form health survey (SF-36), and were assessed using the Constant-Murley shoulder outcome score. Exploratory factor analysis was used to examine the latent dimensions, and Cronbach's α to measure internal consistency...

[Purpose] The evaluation of sitting balance is important for the prevention of falls in older adults, especially those who have a disability involving the lower extremities. However, no studies have been designed to assess a patient's dynamic sitting balance using a sequential protocol. The objective of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the sequential weight-shifting (SWS) test. [Subjects and Methods] Twenty-three older adults who were physically dependent with regard to ambulation were recruited by convenience sampling...

BACKGROUND: Long-term results and complication rates in shoulder arthroplasty are related to implant positioning. Current literature reports increased precision in glenoid component positioning using 3-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) planning tools. This study evaluated the accuracy of glenoid version and inclination measurements using 2D CT scans compared with a validated 3D software program and its influence on decision making on implant selection. METHODS: Preoperative CT scans were obtained from 50 patients undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty...

Acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries are common injuries, especially in the young and active, male population. AC joint injuries account for 12% of all injuries of the shoulder girdle in the overall population. Although conservative treatment is recommended for Rockwood type I and type II injuries, there is controversial debate about optimal treatment for type III injuries. High-grade injuries are typically treated operatively to avoid painful sequelae. A vast number of different surgical methods have been described over the past few decades...

Surfasoft® is a monofilament woven polyamide thread. Its use over skin grafts has always been combined with other occlusive dressings. Its rapid application and transparent property makes it an ideal primary dressing in the absence of any occlusive layers after the first two days following skin graft application. We describe this modified use in our case series. We modified the use of Surfasoft® in four different burns patients and one skin cancer case. Surfasoft® was predominantly used on difficult sites and secured with either staples or sutures...

BACKGROUND: Epidemic levels of shoulder and elbow injuries have been reported recently in youth and adolescent baseball players. Despite the concerning frequency of these injuries, no instrument has been validated to assess upper extremity injury in this patient population. Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to validate an upper extremity assessment tool specifically designed for young baseball players. We hypothesized that this tool will be both reliable and valid. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study (diagnosis); Level of evidence, 2...

Scaphoid fractures are common injuries which traditionally have been treated with long periods of immobilization even after open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). The purpose of this pilot investigation was two-fold: 1) describe a precise postoperative Early Active Motion (EAM) rehabilitation protocol following ORIF of scaphoid fractures and 2) record the outcomes of the EAM protocol. Eight consecutive patients having undergone ORIF of the scaphoid were enrolled in the EAM and followed for a minimum of 1 year...

BACKGROUND: The chondral print (CP) sign is a chondral change on the humeral head underneath the long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon. Several suggested causative links have been described, but the pathologic mechanism remains unclear. METHODS: We designed this prospective cohort association study of 102 consecutive shoulder arthroscopies to investigate proposed associations of CP with LHB, rotator cuff, labral pathology, and other chondral lesions. Data collection was by a specifically designed pro forma, and statistical analysis was performed...

BACKGROUND: Range of motion (ROM) is a clinically important parameter in evaluating joint function. However, dynamic evaluation to determine the quality of the arm motion using digitized measurement is often overlooked during clinical assessment. We evaluated the accuracy of Kinect v2 (Microsoft, Redmond, WA, USA) as a digital tool for measuring shoulder ROM objectively and proposed a concept of motion smoothness reflecting the quality of arm motion. METHODS: Ten male participants were included in a 2-stage experiment...

BACKGROUND: The critical shoulder angle (CSA) has been reported to be associated with rotator cuff disease and has been suggested as an etiology for cuff tears. However, it is unclear whether acromial morphologic characteristics such as CSA are a cause or effect because all studies to date have been retrospective. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) How often can the CSA be reliably measured? (2) Is the CSA associated with rotator cuff disease? (3) Is the CSA correlated with baseline tear size or tear enlargement? (4) Does the CSA change with time? METHODS: In this retrospective comparison of longitudinally collected data, patients with asymptomatic rotator cuff tears underwent ultrasonography and standardized AP radiographs at enrollment and yearly thereafter during a median of 4 years...

BACKGROUND: Straight antegrade intramedullary nailing of proximal humerus fractures has shown promising clinical results. However, up to 36% of all humeri seem to be "critical types" in terms of the potential violation of the supraspinatus (SSP) tendon footprint by the nail's insertion zone. The aims of this study were to evaluate if a computed tomography (CT) scan could reliably predict the nail's entry point on the humeral head and if it would be possible to preoperatively estimate the individual risk of iatrogenic violation of the SSP tendon footprint by evaluating the uninjured contralateral humerus...
