Angle to the glenoid

Matthaeus Cieciera, Ralf Schoeniger, Ujwal Bhure, Klaus Strobel
Scapular notching (SN) is a unique complication in reverse shoulder arthroplasty, caused by repetitive impingement of the humeral polyethylene liner against the inferior scapular neck. It occurs in up to 96% of cases, with bone loss beneath the glenoid baseplate and polyethylene wear. SN can be associated with pain, decreased range of motion, and might result in glenoid implant failure. Modification of glenosphere design and humeral neck angle showed substantially less SN. SPECT/CT is a promising tool providing combined morphologic and metabolic information in symptomatic SN...

BACKGROUND: Although the elevation angle of the arm affects the range of rotation, it has not been evaluated up to the maximal abduction angle. In this study we conducted an evaluation up to maximal abduction and determined the contact patterns at the glenohumeral (GH) joint. METHODS: Fourteen healthy volunteers (12 men and 2 women; mean age, 26.9 years) with normal shoulders (14 right and 8 left) were instructed to rotate their shoulders at 0°, 90°, 135°, and maximal abduction for each shoulder at a time...

BACKGROUND: Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is typically performed in patients with cuff tear arthropathy. A common type of RSA baseplate has a central peg and 4 peripheral screws inserting into the glenoid surface. Baseplate failure is a significant postoperative complication that reduces prosthetic longevity and usually requires revision surgery. This study evaluated the contribution of mechanical factors on initial baseplate fixation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study simulated glenoid baseplate loading in a RSA...

HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that a new method considering the humeral head would distinguish rotator cuff tears (RCTs) and osteoarthritis (OA) better than the critical shoulder angle (CSA). METHODS: A total of 1011 patients were tested in this study and divided into 4 groups: those with RCTs (n = 493), those with OA (n = 73), those with anterior instability (n = 361), and those with adhesive capsulitis (n = 84). The CSA and new radiologic parameters including the humeral head were measured in the true anterior-to-posterior view: the Y angle connecting the lower end of the glenoid (LG), the center of the humeral head (CH), and the upper end of the glenoid (UG); the G angle connecting UG, CH, and the lateral tip of the acromion; the YG angle connecting LG, CH, and the lateral tip of the acromion; and the R angle connecting UG, LG, and CH...

PURPOSE: The relationship between posterior shoulder instability and increased glenoid retroversion has been documented. Posterior open wedge glenoid osteotomy is a possible treatment option for patients with increased glenoid retroversion, but outcomes in the literature are limited. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to report the clinical and radiological outcomes following posterior glenoid osteotomy. METHODS: Patients that underwent posterior glenoid osteotomy for posterior shoulder instability with a GR angle of more than or equal to 10°, and were at least 12 months out from surgery, were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: The biomechanical properties of all-suture anchor for labral repair depending on the insertion angle and location are lacking. The purpose of this study was to quantify the biomechanical fixation characteristics of the anchor position and insertion angle of all-suture anchors for arthroscopic Bankart repair. METHODS: Twenty-four fresh frozen cadaveric glenoid were used. All-suture anchors with 1.5-mm diameter were randomly inserted at 2:30, 4:00, and 5:30 o'clock positions on the glenoid edge, with either 30°, 45° or 60° insertion angles to the mediolateral axis of the glenoid...

Scapular notching is a common radiographic finding occurring after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, and it refers to an erosive lesion of the inferior scapular neck because of the impingement of the humeral implant during adduction. The clinical importance of notching is unclear, and the optimal treatment of severe notching is unknown. The incidence and severity of scapular notching is related to prosthetic design and surgical technique. Implant design factors include size, shape, and position of the glenosphere, inclination of the humeral neck-shaft angle, implant offset, and native scapular anatomy...

INTRODUCTION: Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is a key tool in the orthopedic trauma surgeon's arsenal, especially when faced with a proximal humerus fracture in older patients. However, few studies have focused on the glenoid side of RSA in this indication as the implant is placed in a generally healthy scapula. HYPOTHESIS: Glenoid implants for RSA after trauma are well positioned and do not often cause complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective multicenter study of 513 patients who underwent RSA because of a proximal humerus fracture...

BACKGROUND: Glenoid version angles are measured to objectively follow changes related to glenohumeral dysplasia in the setting of brachial plexus birth palsy. Measuring glenoid version on cross-sectional imaging was initially described by Friedman et al. in 1992. Recent literature for non-dysplastic shoulders advocates time-consuming reconstructions and reformations for an accurate assessment of glenoid version. OBJECTIVE: To compare Friedman's original method for measuring glenoid version to a novel technique we developed ("modified Friedman") with the reference standard of true axial reformations...
