AIM: Arthrodesis of the shoulder joint is a radical event, so it is difficult to explain its significance to patients. It has been the last resort in hopeless cases. Knowledge of long-term results and evaluation of advantages and disadvantages seems to be helpful in this regard. METHODS: Eleven patients with mean age of 45 (31 - 58) years were operated between 2000 and 2013. All patients could be included in the investigation (FU mean 8.5 [3 - 16] years; 8 male and 3 female; right 9, left 2)...

PATHOGENESIS: Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is characterized by a progressive degenerative process, which is based on chronic inflammation with intra-articular release of different cytokines and proteolytic enzymes. The main predisposing factors are a history of trauma or surgery, as well as chronic overuse or instability of the glenohumeral joint. Affected patients especially suffer from impaired joint function and pain, which are often associated with cognitive and psychosocial restrictions...

BACKGROUND: End-effector robots are commonly used in robot-assisted neuro-rehabilitation therapies for upper limbs where the patient's hand can be easily attached to a splint. Nevertheless, they are not able to estimate and control the kinematic configuration of the upper limb during the therapy. However, the Range of Motion (ROM) together with the clinical assessment scales offers a comprehensive assessment to the therapist. Our aim is to present a robust and stable kinematic reconstruction algorithm to accurately measure the upper limb joints using only an accelerometer placed onto the upper arm...

PURPOSE: Patients with an upper brachial plexus lesion can suffer from dysfunction, joint deformities and instability of the shoulder. The goal of this study was to determine pain, shoulder function, patient satisfaction and muscle strength in shoulder arthrodesis in patients with an upper brachial plexus lesion more than 15 years after surgery. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 12 patients with a brachial plexus lesion of mean age 46 years (27-61). At a mean of 19...

In a previous study, compared with throwing athletes with superior labral anterior posterior (SLAP) tears, those with concomitant SLAP tears and rotator cuff tears (RCTs) had significantly poorer outcome scores and return to play. Posterior shoulder instability also occurs in throwing athletes, but no studies currently exist regarding outcomes of these patients with concomitant RCTs. The authors hypothesized that throwing athletes treated with arthroscopic capsulolabral repair for posterior shoulder instability with coexistent rotator cuff pathology would have poorer outcome scores and return to play...

Overhead athletes subject their shoulders to extreme repetitive torque, compression, distraction, and translation stresses, resulting in adaptive changes of the soft tissues and osseous structures within and around the glenohumeral joint. These anatomic adaptations result in biomechanical enhancements, which improve performance. Understanding the difference between necessary and adaptive changes and pathologic findings is critical when making treatment decisions. Injuries to the shoulder of the overhead athlete can be generally classified into three groups: internal impingement, internal impingement with acquired secondary anterior instability, and primary anterior or multidirectional instability...

REVIEW
R M Frank, A A Romeo
Anterior glenohumeral instability remains a difficult problem in the athletic and working patient populations. Treatment strategies are variable and range from nonoperative approaches incorporating immobilization and rehabilitation to surgical management. Surgical decision-making can be challenging, especially with a high-level patient who wishes to return to high-demand activities. Operative options range from open soft tissue stabilization to arthroscopic soft tissue stabilization, with both open and arthroscopic options for bony reconstruction in the setting of clinically significant anterior glenoid bone loss...

Shoulder instability after a posterior glenoid rim fracture is rare and potentially difficult pathology to treat. Operative techniques often involve a large dissection to view the fragments resulting in local soft tissue injury. Internal fixation is often achieved with interfragmentary screws; however, this may not be possible with small or multifragmentary fracture patterns. We describe an arthroscopic technique for posterior glenoid rim fracture fixation using knotless suture anchors. These anchors can be inserted without cannulas allowing easier access to the posterior glenoid...

Posterior shoulder instability, although relatively rare in the general population, is more commonly seen in athletes, especially those in contact sports. Although nonoperative treatment has been associated with satisfactory results in the setting of posterior shoulder instability, conservative management may ultimately fail and lead to recurrence particularly in young, male patients. Both arthroscopic and open repair techniques to address posterior instability have been described, with each showing positive patient-reported outcomes, low risk of recurrence, and considerably high return-to-sport rates...

Introduction: Shoulder instability is one of the most common pathologies seen by the orthopedic sports medicine surgeon. With a uniquely young, high-demand patient population in the U.S. Military, the incidence of shoulder instability is remarkably more common than the civilian population. As such, military orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine and shoulder specialists have developed a unique understanding and experience of shoulder instability. The historical advances of shoulder instability in the military have been instrumental in understanding the epidemiology, evaluation, pathology, treatment of first-time shoulder subluxations and dislocations, operative and non-operative treatment options, arthroscopic and open stabilization methods, management of the in-season athlete, treatment of combined and circumferential labral pathology, and associated pathology...

In the treatment of anterior shoulder instability, there are various conditions in which a sling effect is needed to enhance anterior stability. The traditional Latarjet procedure provides a sling effect but destroys the coracoacromial arch, which may result in superior instability. To preserve the coracoacromial arch and create a sling to enhance the anterior-inferior side of the shoulder, we introduce an arthroscopic technique to transfer the long head of the biceps (LHB) brachii. Indications of LHB transfer are patients younger than 45 years of age who participate in competitive sports, require forceful external rotation and abduction movement of the shoulder, and/or have capsule-ligament insufficiency, as well as patients 45 years o or older who have combined SLAP lesions (type II or IV)...

Posterior glenoid reconstruction using distal tibia allograft is an available technique for the treatment of posterior shoulder instability with glenoid bone loss. A key aspect to this procedure relies on maintaining complete control of the graft during insertion and securement to the posterior glenoid. Although there are commercially available products to aid with graft control, we describe a novel graft transfer technique that is compatible with all cannulated systems for maintaining positive graft control...

Arthroscopic techniques are an emerging technology to deal with glenoid bone defects in patients with anterior shoulder instability, and improvements are being made to safely minimize the risk of injury to the anterior neurovascular structures including the axillary nerve. Arthroscopic glenoid reconstruction is a technically demanding procedure, but it does have promising short-term outcomes. I truly like the concept of anterior (and also posterior) bone grafting for defects of the glenoid, including the arthroscopic Latarjet...
