Revision rotator cuff reconstruction for large tears with retraction results in a high rate of recurrent cuff tearing. To try to obtain more consistent results, I conducted a study of a technique that addresses the potential factors involved. Ten patients (7 men, 3 women) were enrolled. Mean age was 58 years. Mean follow-up was 24 months. Mean time between primary and revision cuff surgery was 36 months. The cardinal inclusion criterion was a symptomatic, full-thickness rotator cuff tear with at least 3 cm of retraction in a shoulder that previously underwent rotator cuff repair...

Rheumatoid wrist arthritis is common and affects about 1.5 million people in the United States. For advanced disease, arthrodesis and implant arthroplasty have been recommended as treatment options. In 1970, palmar shelf arthroplasty was introduced, and initial results were encouraging but not reproducible. In 1990, Dr. Skoff modified the original procedure with good results in patients followed for 2 to 7 years. This study reports the results of 13 patients (9 women, 4 men; average age, 43 years) who were followed up for an average of 13...

Dupuytren's disease is an affliction of the palmar fascia. Selective fasciectomy is recommended once contracture has occurred. Alternatives for wound closure include tissue rearrangement, the open palm technique, and full-thickness skin grafting. In this prospective study, a new "synthesis" technique was used to treat a cohort of patients with advanced Dupuytren's disease. The results were then compared with those of a second cohort of patients who underwent the open palm technique. Thirty consecutive patients were selected...

Rupture of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon after a distal radius fracture is an uncommon event; the incidence is 3%,according to a review of treatment of 200 consecutive patients with Colles fractures. Diagnosis is based on persistent dorsal wrist pain and a positive retroflexion sign. Recommended treatments in the prerupture setting include a third dorsal compartment release with or without an extensor retinacular patch graft. Also recommended are a palmaris longus graft in the acute rupture setting and a transfer from the extensor indicis proprius to the EPL tendon in the subacute or chronic setting...
