RATIONALE: Cervical nerve root injury is one of the complications of traumatic cervical spine fracture. Although one of the most effective treatments to reduce inflammation in nerve root injuries is the use of corticosteroids or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids and NSAIDs can inhibit bone healing. So, when nerve injury accompanies bone fractures, corticosteroids and NSAIDs have limitations as therapeutic agents. However, polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) may be useful in the treatment of neuropathy or musculoskeletal pain patients with contraindication of the use of corticosteroids because of its anti-inflammatory effect, as revealed in previous studies...

We previously evaluated 94 patients (96 shoulders) who underwent reverse shoulder arthroplasty using a central compressive screw with 5.0-mm peripheral locking screws for baseplate fixation and a center of rotation lateral to the glenoid as treatment for end-stage rotator cuff deficiency. The purpose of this study was to report updated results at a minimum follow-up of 10 years. Forty patients (42 shoulders) were available for clinical follow-up. In the patients available for study, implant survivorship, with the end point being revision for any reason, was 90...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to discuss the epidemiology, pathoanatomy, diagnosis, and clinical management of pediatric and adolescent patients following a first-time shoulder dislocation. RECENT FINDINGS: Shoulder instability is becoming increasingly common as pediatric and adolescent patients engage in earlier organized sports competition. Recommended treatment following a first-time glenohumeral dislocation event in adolescents depends on several factors, but surgical stabilization is becoming more frequently performed...

BACKGROUND: Glenohumeral dislocation is the most commonly encountered adult joint instability. The epidemiology in the United Kingdom and worldwide is unclear and often limited to young, active groups that are not representative of general populations. Information regarding epidemiology and outcome from a first dislocation is useful for trauma service planning and patient counseling. We calculated the incidence of shoulder instability after a first dislocation in our urban population and investigated predictors of recurrent instability...

The purpose of this study was to compare reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) outcomes in normal weight, overweight, and obese patients. A RTSA outcomes registry was reviewed for rotator cuff-deficient patients with a minimum 2-year follow-up. Fractures, rheumatoid arthritis, and revisions were excluded. Based on World Health Organization body mass index (BMI) classification, there were 29 normal weight, 50 overweight, and 51 obese patients. All groups demonstrated significant improvements from preoperative to most recent follow-up in function scores, pain, and forward elevation...

PURPOSE: Adult mid-shaft clavicle fractures are common injuries. For displaced fractures, open reduction with plate or intramedullary (IM) fixation is the widely used techniques. All methods have their own potential drawbacks, especially related to local soft tissue complications. There is little information about outcome and management of local wound complications after clavicle fracture fixations. METHODS: Ninety-seven patients underwent open reduction and internal fixation, 17 were treated with IM screw fixation and 80 with plate fixation...

Rim defects of the anterior glenoid cavity are a main reason for residual shoulder instability after traumatic dislocation of the shoulder. These defects can be the result of a glenoid rim fracture or chronic glenoid erosion after repeated shoulder dislocations. Treatment concepts for these entities are entirely different. While in the acute fracture situation glenoid rim fractures can be treated operatively or non-operatively, augmentation of the anterior glenoid for stabilization of the shoulder should be considered if the defect exceeds 15-25% of the anterior glenoid...

STUDY DESIGN: Single-blinded randomized controlled trial. INTRODUCTION: Pain management is essential in the early stages of the rehabilitation of distal radius fractures (DRFx). Pain intensity at the acute stage is considered important for determining the individual recovery process, given that higher pain intensity and persistent pain duration negatively affect the function and cortical activity of pain response. Graded motor imagery (GMI) and its components are recent pain management strategies, established on a neuroscience basis...

PURPOSE: It is known that shoulder surgery may cause iatrogenic injury to the axillary nerve as a serious complication, but there is little evidence to indicate whether the axillary nerve is at risk of injury during an anterolateral acromial approach for minimally-invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) of proximal humerus fractures. We hypothesised that this surgical method is safe for the axillary nerve and would preserve it from iatrogenic injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective follow-up cohort study on 49 consecutive patients with proximal humerus fractures who were managed with MIPO through an anterolateral approach...

BACKGROUND: Long head biceps tendon pathology is a common cause of anterior shoulder pain and is often associated with other shoulder conditions, such as rotator cuff tears and osteoarthritis. It is well accepted that older patients are at increased risk for major and minor peri- and postoperative complications. The purpose of this study is to investigate patients over 65 years old who underwent subpectoral biceps tenodesis and compare the complication rates of this group to those of patients younger than 65 years old...

We report a case of a 15-year-old boy with chronic intermittent left shoulder pain due to an undiagnosed lesser tuberosity avulsion fracture, an associated biceps pulley injury and intra-articular dislocation of the long head of the biceps tendon. Lesser tuberosity avulsion fractures are rare injuries that are difficult to detect on clinical exam and radiographically, which may lead to delayed diagnosis and chronic shoulder instability. Few reports describe dislocations or subluxations of the biceps tendon in association with lesser tuberosity avulsions in children...

INTRODUCTION: The use of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) has increased dramatically over the last two decades, with many surgeons now indicating RSA for the acute management of displaced proximal humerus fractures (PHF) in the elderly. RSA relies on adequate deltoid muscle function to obtain a good outcome, yet no literature to date exists which discusses preoperative assessment of deltoid structure prior to RSA. The purpose of this study was to assess for preoperative fatty deltoid-degeneration in patients with displaced PHF...
