BACKGROUND: Nonsurgically treated patients with AIS demonstrate altered scapular kinematics and decreased patient-reported shoulder function compared with typically developing adolescents. It is unknown whether surgical correction of the spine deformity has beneficial or detrimental effects on scapulothoracic joint function, as previous assessments of shoulder function following surgery have only focused on humerothoracic motion. The objective of this study was to perform a comprehensive analysis of scapular kinematics before and after PSF and compare postoperative scapular kinematics in AIS to those of a typically developing cohort...

Shoulder performance and sensorimotor control assessments help to identify shoulder instabilities and document the rehabilitation progress. Testing seated subjects in a position of hand prehension requires less controlled adjustments to maintain body balance in a clinically relevant situation. The objective of this work was to determine the test-retest repeatability of a novel shoulder stability test in seated subjects with the ipsi-lateral hand in prehension during four arm loading conditions. Able-bodied subjects were seated on a rigid chair fixed to a force plate...

RATIONALE: Scapular winging is caused by neuromuscular dysfunction of shoulder stabilizer muscles. Clinically, a winged scapula can be easily diagnosed by typical physical findings. We report a case of atypical winged scapula caused by dorsal scapular neuropathy combined with suprascapular neuropathy, which has rarely been reported. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 25-year-old right-handed male was admitted to the clinic due to right arm weakness for 1 year. On physical examination, right winged scapula with medially rotated inferior angle was observed on flexion...

Following arthroscopic rotator cuff repair there is a balance between allowing reliable tendon healing and regaining range of motion. Common rehabilitation philosophy requires time for shoulder immobilization combined with passive range of motion to avoid shoulder stiffness yet maximize tendon healing.

The main goal of this study was to determinate the extent of the relationship between shoulder pain and time of wrist and thumb immobilization required after injury. One hundred twenty-three consecutive subjects presenting to the practice of different Orthopedic Specialist hospitals with a diagnosis of distal radius or scaphoid fracture that required wrist and thumb immobilization were screened for eligibility criteria. Upper extremity pain and the need for shoulder rehabilitation were assessed using the visual analogue scale (VAS) at baseline after immobilization period (T0) 1- and 3-month follow-up (1-FU/2-FU)...

Robotic and sensor-based neurologic rehabilitation for the upper limb is an established concept for motor learning and is recommended in many national guidelines. The complexity of the human hands and arms and the different activities of daily living are leading to an approach in which robotic and sensor-based devices are used in combination to fulfill the multiple requirements of this intervention. A multidisciplinary team of the Fondazione Don Carlo Gnocchi (FDG), an Italian nonprofit foundation, which spans across the entire Italian territory with 28 rehabilitation centers, developed a strategy for the implementation of robotic rehabilitation within the FDG centers...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the clinical outcome of arthroscopic treatment for anterior shoulder dislocation in elite and professional baseball players. METHODS: This study included 51 baseball players who underwent arthroscopic Bankart repair between 2008 and 2015. The follow-up duration was set at 24 months or longer, based on clinic visit or telephone survey. After surgery, players who played in 1 or more official games were considered to have returned to play (RTP), and those who participated in more than 10 official games were considered to have solidly returned to play (sRTP)...

Raptor population growth is dynamic and trends vary across species and by location in the United States. For those species that are declining, it is important to identify potential causes including chemical contaminants. Sampling wild raptors is problematic due to their small population sizes and role as a top predator. Therefore, we obtained liver samples (n = 56) from carcasses of several raptor species, including common species like red-tailed hawks, red-shouldered hawks, barred owls, great horned owls, and osprey that arrived dead or were euthanized from a non-profit rehabilitation center in Charlotte, North Carolina...

Luxatio erecta humeri is the rarest type of glenohumeral dislocation, which has been reported to be associated with humeral fracture, rotator cuff tear and neurovascular injury. To our knowledge, a single-sided acute inferior glenohumeral dislocation associated with humeral greater tuberosity fracture and axillary nerve injury has not yet been reported. Here, we reported a traumatic first-time inferior shoulder dislocation from a construction worker who got hyperflexion of the left shoulder when fell and grasped the railing causing...

Traumatic anterior shoulder dislocations are the most common dislocations of the shoulder, and the recurrence rate is high when they are treated nonoperatively in young patients (<30 years old). This has led to a trend toward early surgical stabilization. Originally open Bankart repair was considered the standard of care, with good clinical outcomes and a low recurrence rate. However, the majority of Bankart repairs are now performed with newer arthroscopic techniques because of their potential advantages and similar results...
