Musculoskeletal injuries are a leading cause of disability in both the general population and military, and the ability to effectively quantify musculoskeletal function remains problematic. The aim of the current study is to investigate the reliability, responsiveness, and criterion validity of the kiio Sensor for measurement of muscle strength, a key aspect of comprehensive functional assessment. Forty-four (24 male, 20 female) physically active civilian adults (mean [SD] = 21.2 [1.5] years of age) with no history of upper extremity injuries in the last year and no current complaints of pain, weakness, or functional limitation completed two sessions of maximum shoulder external rotation contractions...

Kinematics of the shoulder girdle obtained from non-invasive measurement systems such as video motion analysis, accelerometers and magnetic tracking sensors has been shown to be adversely affected by instrumentation measurement errors and skin motion artefact. The degree to which musculoskeletal model calculations of shoulder muscle and joint loading are influenced by variations in joint kinematics is currently not well understood. A three-dimensional musculoskeletal model of the upper limb was used to evaluate the sensitivity of shoulder muscle and joint force...

BACKGROUND: Repair of the subscapularis with reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) is controversial. The purpose of this study is to quantify rTSA outcomes in patients with and without subscapularis repair to determine if there is any impact on clinical outcomes. METHODS: Three hundred forty patients received rTSA and had the subscapularis repaired, whereas 251 patients received rTSA and did not have the subscapularis repaired. The patients were scored preoperatively and at latest follow-up using the Simple Shoulder Test; University of California, Los Angeles; American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons; Constant; and Shoulder Pain and Disability Index metrics...

Study Design Repeated-measures clinical measurement reliability study. Background While there are some shoulder functional tests for athletes, no widely used performance test of arm and shoulder function currently exists to assess lower level upper extremity functional demands, for example in a non-athlete population or elderly individuals. In these individuals, functional measures rely on patient self-report. Objectives Describe the development of the Timed Functional Arm and Shoulder Test (TFAST), age-related scores and between-session reliability in a group of asymptomatic high-school athletes, young, middle-aged and older adults, and a preliminary group of symptomatic patients...

PURPOSE: Proper humeral head (HH) sizing is critical to success in anatomic shoulder replacement for management of glenohumeral arthritis. In this study, we evaluate the accuracy and reliability of using non-articular landmarks on conventional radiographs for HH templating. METHODS: Anatomic HH replacement was performed on five non-arthritic shoulders, from fresh adult cadavers. Pre-operative and post-operative radiographs and 3-D CT scans were obtained. Humeral head size was determined using the articular surface and three extra-articular landmarks (inner aspect of the lateral cortex, the medial footprint of the rotator cuff, and the medial calcar)...

BACKGROUND: In some settings, specific techniques for open reduction and internal fixation are preferred based on the eminence of a surgeon or professional organization. An emphasis on technical aspects of surgery that are not proved superior and vary substantially from surgeon to surgeon can be confusing for trainees. This study applied a numerical grading of the technical aspects of tension band wire (TBW) fixation for olecranon fracture; assessed the interobserver agreement of each criterion; and measured the correlation of the technical grading and objective and subjective long-term outcomes...

STUDY DESIGN: Repeated cross-sectional study. INTRODUCTION: Multiple studies have evaluated the psychometric properties of the Simple Shoulder Test (SST) through traditional methods supporting it as valid and reliable. Since the evidentiary pool supporting the use of the SST has only partially addressed key measurement properties and the development of SST pre-dates the common use of Rasch model, validation of SST has become a necessity to establish as a reliable and valid PRO for shoulder conditions...

BACKGROUND: Extraarticular fractures of distal humerus are challenging injuries to treat because of complex anatomy and fracture patterns. Functional bracing may not provide adequate stability in these injuries and operative treatment with intramedullary nails or conventional plates also has the limitation of inadequate fixation in the short distal fragment. The 3.5 mm precontoured single column locking plate (extraarticular distal humerus plate [EADHP]) has been introduced to overcome this problem...

OBJECTIVE: The idea of this article is to propose to the general use of a new term to semiologically describe musculoskeletal wrist pain. FINDINGS: The use of terms with Greco-Latin roots is common in the medical field. The result is expressed in the newly coined word (neologism) "carpalgia", defined as musculoskeletal pain in the region of the wrist. CONCLUSIONS: The use of other terms related to musculoskeletal pain of the shoulder (omalgia), knee (gonalgia), metatarsus (metatarsalgia), spine (cervicalgia, lumbalgia), or hip (coxalgia) terms have demonstrated their importance through their applicability in different medical journals in recent years...

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...
