OBJECTIVE: The best treatment for moderately displaced radial head fractures (Mason type II) still remains controversial. In cases of isolated fractures, there is no evidence that a fragment displacement of ≥ 2 mm gives poor results in conservatively treated fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 52 patients (31M, 21F) affected by an isolated Mason type II fracture, treated with a long arm cast for two weeks between 2008 and 2013. All patients had practiced sports before being injured...

BACKGROUND: Proximal humerus fractures are common injuries and nonsurgical treatment has proven to yield good to excellent clinical results. A small percentage of these fractures go on to delayed or nonunion and the incidence and risk factors for this complication are poorly understood. We hypothesize that adjacent joint stiffness of the glenohumeral joint might lead to an increased rate of nonunion for proximal humerus fractures. METHODS: A search of the entire Medicare database from 2005 to 2011 was performed to identify 38,754 patients who sustained a proximal humerus fracture including 13,802 with co-existing ipsilateral shoulder osteoarthritis (OA) and 24,952 with co-existing diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA)...

Synovial chondromatosis is a rare and benign condition of unknown cause. It is also known as synovial osteochondromatosis. It is characterized by involvement of the synovial tissue, which lines various joints of our body. Initial symptoms range from pain in the joint, locking of the joint at times, especially the knee, to arthritis of the joint that is a late feature of this condition. Although large joints such as the knee are commonly affected, involvement of the shoulder joint is a rare occurrence. Historically an open arthrotomy was preferred for removal of loose bodies coupled with a thorough synovectomy...

The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides core support which is essential for the cell and tissue architectural development. The role of ECM in many pathological conditions has been well established and ECM-related abnormalities leading to serious consequences have been identified. Though much has been explored in regards to the role of ECM in soft tissue associated pathologies, very little is known about its role in inflammatory disorders in tendon. In this study, we performed microRNA (miRNA) expression analysis in the long head of the human shoulder biceps tendon to identify key genes whose expression was altered during inflammation in patients with glenohumeral arthritis...

The authors report their experience in the management of a 53-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis who presented with bilateral asynchronous traumatic periprosthetic fractures of the humerus after bilateral elbow replacements. One side was treated with a long-stem revision and internal fixation with bone graft, while the other side was treated with a long-stem distal humeral replacement. She sustained pathological periprosthetic fractures on top of the long-stemmed implants. Total humeral endoprosthesis replacements were performed bilaterally as salvage procedures to provide a stable platform for her elbow and hand function...

Shoulder arthritis due to rheumatoid arthritis is effecting 50% of the patients, but the treatment indications still carry contraversies. The literature had shown that with the optimal selection of indications, patients' morbidity can be improved. In this review, treatment modalites are widely discussed according to the patients' demand, functional status and correct order of treatments.

A 54 year-old woman with a 3-year history of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) consulted us because of weight loss, fever and skin eruption. On physical examination, erythematous plaques with a pseudo-vesicular appearance were seen on the back of both shoulders. Histological examination was consistent with rheumatoid neutrophilic dermatosis (RND). After three days of prednisone treatment, the skin eruption resolved. RND is a rare cutaneous manifestation of seropositive RA, characterized by asymptomatic, symmetrical erythematous plaques with a pseudo-vesicular appearance...
