BACKGROUND: The Latarjet technique is a reliable treatment option for recurrent anterior shoulder instability. However, the complication rate has been reported to be as high as 30%, with 1.6% of patients suffering a nerve injury. The all-arthroscopic Latarjet procedure has been gaining popularity, even as it has introduced its own challenges. Given that the surgeon is not able to palpate the nerves, their localization and protection can be difficult. Additionally, the use of different instruments can lead to distinct nerve injury mechanisms...

AIM: To evaluate the association between various risk factors, including sleeping position, and impingement syndrome. Impingement syndrome is the most common cause of shoulder problems. The pathogenesis of this problem is still debated these days. METHODS: This was a case control study conducted at the outpatient clinic of Songklanakarind hospital. Data regarding history, physical examination and radiographic evaluations using supraspinatous outlet views were obtained from all patients with clinically suspected impingement syndrome...

Impingement syndrome is a common ailment of the shoulder, particularly in individuals who perform repetitive overhead activities, such as athletes and laborers. Patients typically report progressive shoulder pain often exacerbated by flexion and abduction and may demonstrate a classic painful arc of motion. This article describes a case of a 45-year-old man with signs and symptoms consistent with impingement syndrome. Workup revealed a well-circumscribed, homogeneous lesion within the supraspinatus muscle on magnetic resonance imaging...

PURPOSE: The quantitative assessment of muscle atrophy has a degree of importance in prognosticating rotator cuff treatment. However, it has been conjectured that muscle fat increases with aging. Therefore, we thought that the quantitative assessment of the supraspinatous would be better if made in comparison with a standard of reference such as the deltoid. Consequently, we performed a two-part study, first evaluating supraspinatous changes compared with the deltoid in "normals" with aging, and second, determining if in patients with cuff tears the supraspinatous fat exceeds that of the deltoid...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the present study was to determine the acromial shape and examine if there is a correlation between the acromial morphology and genders, ages and sides. MATERIAL AND METHOD: The present examined 154 dried Thai scapulas (107 males and 47 females) with age range from 16 to 87years (mean = 49 + 17 years). The acromial morphology of each scapula was studied by the computerized image analysis of digitized photography through the supraspinatous outlet view, with the distance (M) measured from its anterior to posterior end, the height (H) of the resultant curve and the distance (N) from the anterior end to the point perpendicular to the height...

Shoulder arthroscopy and the introduction of suture anchors has provided the surgeon with the ability to repair rotator cuff tears through minimal incisions. Rotator cuff repair involves the use of several portals, such as the posterior portal, the anterior portal, the anterior superior portal, the anterior inferior portal, and the Neviaser portal. The authors have developed 2 additional portals, the new Subclavian portal and the modified Neviaser portal, to improve the safety and efficacy of rotator cuff repair and solve a number of problems associated with traditional repair techniques...

OBJECTIVE: This study was performed to examine the relationship and association of abnormalities seen in the long head of the biceps brachii tendon to abnormal findings in the rotator cuff. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred eleven patients underwent MR imaging for shoulder pain followed by arthroscopic or open shoulder surgery from January 1997 to December 2000. Patients were identified by a retrospective search, and all consecutive patients having undergone both MR imaging and surgery were included in the patient cohort...

The aim of this study was to determine the normal ultrasonographic anatomy of the canine shoulder. Fourteen shoulders from 7 clinically normal mid-sized dogs were radiographed and imaged using high frequency ultrasound. Each shoulder was isolated postmortem, and the ultrasonographic and gross anatomy was studied during dissection. The ultrasonographic appearance of the shoulder specimens was similar to that found in the live dogs. Twenty-four shoulders isolated postmortem from 12 variably sized dogs were also used to characterize the normal ultrasound anatomy over a range of sizes...

After sonographical examination we performed surgically an experimental muscle injury of known size and location on 28 New Zealand white rabbits by a stab with a scalpel into the supraspinatic muscle. The changes in the healing process were sonographically followed and documented for 2 months in short periods of time. The sonographically detectable changes during the healing process underlie a regularity. The changes in sonography can be explained by histopathology with respect to the theoretics of ultrasound physics...

Rotator cuff tears (RCT) are frequent and increase with age. Why do only a relatively small percentage cause a permanent severe handicap justifying surgery? Is there a relationship between size and site of the tear and the clinical symptoms? How do they influence the postoperative result? These questions were answered in a prospective study of 76 operated patients. We adopted D. Patte's classification of the RCT into four groups according to the site and size of the lesion. Our figures were compared with those obtained by Patte in an analogous study of 256 cases...

Discontinuity and asymmetry of the rotator cuff and the presence of the "triangle" sign are regarded as CT evidence of major abnormalities. Accurate evaluation of these signs depends on the presence or absence of atrophy of the supraspinatous muscle as seen on computed tomography.
