Rotator cuff rehab

Justin J Ernat, Craig R Bottoni, Douglas J Rowles
Humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament (HAGL) is a lesion that has been recognized as a cause of recurrent shoulder instability. To our knowledge there are no reports of successful return to full function in young, competitive athletes or return to manual labor following nonoperative management of a HAGL lesion. A 26-year-old Navy SEAL was diagnosed with a HAGL injury, and associated traction injury of the axillary nerve as well as a partial tear of the rotator cuff. Operative intervention was recommended; however, due to issues with training and with inability to properly rehab with the axillary nerve injury, surgical plans were delayed...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of a specific rehabilitation program for patients in whom ultrasound-guided percutaneous treatment (UGPT) was performed for rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy (RCCT). SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In this prospective observational study, 86 patients (22 males and 64 females) with shoulder calcific tendinopathy treated with UGPT were enrolled. At the end of the procedure, a corticosteroid injection into the subacromial-subdeltoid bursa was performed...

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus for the optimal postoperative rehabilitation protocol after rotator cuff repairs. OBJECTIVE: To determine if there is sufficient level I or II evidence available in the literature for establishment of a uniform, optimal rotator cuff rehabilitation protocol. DATA SOURCES: A systematic review of level I and II English-language, prospective, randomized controlled trials published between 1966 and 2008 was performed...

A major requirement to design an implant is to develop our understanding of the applied internal forces during everyday activities. In the absence of any basic apparatus for measuring forces directly, it is essential to rely on modelling. The major aim of this study was therefore to understand the biomechanical function of subjects with the reversed anatomy Bayley-Walker prosthesis, using an inverse dynamic shoulder model. In this context, the muscle and joint forces of 12 Bayley-Walker subjects were compared to those of 12 normal subjects during 12 activities of daily living...

OBJECTIVE: To discuss and evaluate the surgical techniques of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and its clinical results. METHODS: From March 2002 to May 2005, 44 out of 68 patients treated by arthroscopic rotator cuff repair had been reviewed with a mean post-operation time of 12 months. Of the 44 patients, 40 were available for follow-up, with a mean period of 20.6 (12 - 40) months. The mean age was 56 (30 - 81) years. According to Gerber classification, there were 8 partial tears, 27 small tears and 5 massive tears...
