It is still unknown whether glenoid inclination or lateral acromial roof extension is a more important determinant for development of rotator cuff tears (RCT) or osteoarthritis (OA) of the shoulder. It was the purpose of this study, to evaluate whether there is a potential predominance of one of these factors in pathogenesis of RCT or concentric OA. We analyzed 70 shoulders with advanced degenerative RCT and 54 shoulders with concentric OA undergoing primary shoulder arthroplasty (anatomical or reverse) using antero-posterior radiography and multiplanar computed tomography...

Surgical repair of rotator cuff tears presents a significant clinical challenge with high failure rates and inferior functional outcomes. Graft augmentation improves repair outcomes, however currently available grafting materials have limitations. While cell-seeded decellularized tendon slices may facilitate cell infiltration, promote tendon incorporation and preserve original mechanical strength, the unique fibrocartilage zone is yet to be successfully reestablished. In this study, we investigated the biological and mechanical properties of an engineered tendon-fibrocartilage-bone composite (TFBC) with cyclic tension (3% strain, 0...

Superior capsular reconstruction has received increased attention as a surgical technique to address massive 'irreparable' rotator cuff tears; however, the functional limitations and surgical techniques associated with this repair have yet to be sufficiently explored. The goal of this study was to utilize a multidisciplinary approach to characterize the biomechanics of this repair by: 1) identifying activities of daily living that may overburden graft, and 2) optimizing surgical techniques used during implantation...

BACKGROUND: Most of the literature on shoulder arthroplasty failure comes from high-volume centers. These reports tend to exclude the experience of community orthopedic surgeons, who perform most of the shoulder joint replacements. METHODS: We analyzed the failure reports mandated by the US Food and Drug Administration for all hospitals. Each reported event from 2012 to 2016 was characterized by implant, failure mode, and year of surgery. RESULTS: For the 1673 anatomic arthroplasties, the most common failure modes were glenoid component failure (20...

BACKGROUND: There is evidence for differences of scapular shape between shoulders with rotator cuff tears (RCT) and osteoarthritic shoulders (OA). This study analyzed orientation and shape of the acromion in patients with massive RCT and concentric OA (COA) in a multiplanar computed tomography (CT) analysis. METHODS: CT scans of 70 shoulders with degenerative RCT and 45 shoulders with COA undergoing primary shoulder arthroplasty were analyzed. The 2 groups were compared in relation of (1) shape of the acromion, (2) its orientation in space, and (3) the anteroposterior glenoid coverage in relation to the scapular plane...

BACKGROUND: Irreparable rotator cuff tears (IRCTs) are a challenging problem with diverse treatment modalities. We propose a technique for the treatment of IRCTs in which a vascularized dermal autograft is transferred to the posterosuperior region of the rotator cuff using the supraclavicular artery (SCA) island flap. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Dissection of 11 fresh cadavers (19 shoulders) was performed, and the SCA island flap was harvested in all specimens. A full-thickness posterosuperior rotator cuff defect was created, and the flap was tunneled under the acromion and secured into position over the defect using multiple suture anchors...

BACKGROUND: Massive rotator cuff tears (RCTs) begin as primary tendon injuries and cause a myriad of changes in the muscle, including atrophy, fatty infiltration (FI), and fibrosis. However, it is unclear which changes are most closely associated with muscle function. PURPOSE: To determine if FI of the supraspinatus muscle after acute RCT relates to short-term changes in muscle function. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study. METHODS: Unilateral RCTs were induced in female rabbits via tenotomy of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus...

BACKGROUND: The failure of rotator cuffs to heal after repair is an unresolved surgical issue. There have been substantial efforts, including the use of biological supplements, to enhance tendon healing. Dermal fibroblasts are a good candidate for tendon tissue engineering because they are similar to the tenocytes used for collagen synthesis. In addition, they are easily accessible because autologous dermal fibroblasts can be obtained from individual skin without major skin defects and allogenic dermal fibroblasts (ADFs) have already been commercialized in the field of skin engineering...

BACKGROUND: Previous biomechanical studies regarding deltoid function during glenohumeral abduction have primarily used static testing protocols. HYPOTHESES: (1) Deltoid forces required for scapular plane abduction increase as simulated rotator cuff tears become larger, and (2) maximal abduction decreases despite increased deltoid forces. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study. METHODS: Twelve fresh-frozen cadaveric shoulders with a mean age of 67 years (range, 64-74 years) were used...

Herein, we report a large lipoma at the spinoglenoid notch that mimicked a rotator cuff tear, which occurred in a 61-year-old male farmer. Weakness and pain in the shoulder started abruptly after hard labor, and our first impression was a traumatic rotator cuff tear; however, there was no tear on MRI, and complete marginal excision of a large lipoma at the spinoglenoid notch relieved the symptoms completely at a postoperative three-month follow-up visit. We believe that certain activities such as forceful shoulder abduction may have caused the sudden onset of suprascapular neuropathy in the loosely compressed suprascapular nerve by the lipoma...

BACKGROUND: Treatment options for irreparable cuff tears include synthetic interposition grafts, but whether such grafts can maintain acceptable shoulder function and prevent cuff tear arthropathy in the long-term is unknown. METHOD: This was a retrospective case series of 13 consecutive patients treated with a synthetic interposition graft made of Dacron (DuPont, Wilmington, DE, USA). Patients were examined with bilateral ultrasonography, bilateral x-ray imaging, Constant-Murley score, and Western Ontario Rotator Cuff score...

BACKGROUND: Focus has recently been on the critical shoulder angle (CSA) as a factor related to rotator cuff tear and osteoarthritis (OA) in the European population. However, whether this relationship is observed in the Asian population is unclear. METHODS: The correlation between the CSAs measured on anteroposterior radiographs and the presence or absence of rotator cuff tears or OA changes was assessed in 295 patients. Rotator cuff tears were diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging or ultrasonography...

PURPOSE: The first aim of this study was to introduce the concept of hybrid repair (incomplete repair) for large to massive rotator cuff tears and to report clinical results and structural integrity of patients with a minimum 2-year follow-up. The second aim was to compare arthroscopic hybrid repair with partial repair for large to massive rotator cuff tears. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 65 patients who underwent arthroscopic incomplete (hybrid) repair (45 patients) or partial repair (20 patients) for large to massive cuff tears from March 2011 to January 2015...
