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...

OBJECTIVES: To summarise the evidence for generic prognostic factors across a range of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. SETTING: primary care. METHODS AND OUTCOMES: Comprehensive systematic literature review. MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsychINFO and EMBASE were searched for prospective cohort studies, based in primary care (search period-inception to December 2015). Studies were included if they reported on adults consulting with MSK conditions and provided data on associations between baseline characteristics (prognostic factors) and outcome...

BACKGROUND: The main reconstruction techniques for proximal humerus tumors include osteoarticular allografts (OAs), endoprostheses (EPs), or allograft prosthetic composites (APCs). A common complication is infection, and constructs involving the use of allografts are believed to be at a higher risk of infection. Literature comparing infection rates between different modalities of reconstruction is scarce and underpowered. The study purposes were (1) to determine and compare the prevalence of infection in patients who underwent reconstruction of the proximal humerus including OAs, EPs, and APCs; (2) to identify preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative predictors of infection that might be modifiable; and (3) to present our protocol of treatment in patients with superficial and deep infections...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to analyze a population of patients with bilateral reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) to evaluate their ability to perform activities of daily living and personal hygiene tasks. METHODS: At a minimum 2-year follow-up, we retrospectively reviewed 50 patients (100 shoulders) with a mean age of 72 years who underwent staged bilateral RTSA. The average follow-up period was 61 months (range, 24-121 months), with a minimum 2-year follow-up after the second surgical procedure...

BACKGROUND: Restoration of soft tissue balance for intraoperative posterior instability during anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is particularly difficult. The effectiveness of posterior capsular plication (PCP) in restoring soft tissue balance is largely unknown. The purpose of this study was to report the outcomes, complications, and reoperations of primary TSA in which a PCP was performed to correct excessive intraoperative posterior subluxation. METHODS: Thirty-eight shoulders (37 patients) underwent PCP for intraoperative posterior instability during anatomic TSA...

HYPOTHESIS AND BACKGROUND: The role of degeneration is not well understood for rotator cuff pain. If age-related degenerative changes would be the cause of symptoms, degeneration would precede or concur with self-reported pain. We performed 3 systematic literature reviews. Our objectives were to determine the prevalence estimates for rotator cuff partial or complete tears (1) in cadavers and (2) in the general population and (3) to estimate the incidence/prevalence of self-reported nontraumatic shoulder pain in the general population in order to compare their respective age-related profiles...

BACKGROUND: The return to work of young patients undergoing shoulder arthroplasty is increasingly important. Whereas studies have shown superior outcomes of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) compared with humeral hemiarthroplasty (HHA), no prior literature has compared RTSA with HHA in regard to return to work. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively collected shoulder arthroplasty registry was performed to analyze all patients who underwent RTSA or HHA at a single institution...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the United States. A small portion of differentiated thyroid cancers (DTCs; 2% to 13%) develop bone metastases, which can decrease a patient's survival rate by more than 60%. METHODS: A systematic literature search of studies, including patients with DTC with bone metastases, was conducted by following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. A case series of patients with DTC diagnosed with bone metastases seen at our institution was also included...

This study explored the radiographic and anatomical differences in normal shoulders between men and women, as well as factors such as race, height, weight, and age. A total of 205 patients with documented normal anatomical radiographs comprised the study population. Five fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon reviewers measured head diameter, humeral head size, head to tuberosity distance, greater tuberosity width, neck-shaft angle, surface-arc angle, glenoid neck length, and distance from the lateral acromion process to the greater tuberosity on anteroposterior radiographs with the shoulder in external rotation...

BACKGROUND: The red ear syndrome represents a rare symptom complex consisting of auricular erythema associated with painful and burning sensations. It has been described in combination with tinnitus rarely. It has been hypothesized to be etiologically related to altered trigeminal afferent input, temporomandibular disorders, and thalamic dysfunction. OBJECTIVES: The initial objective of applying transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) in a case of red ear syndrome in combination with tinnitus was the alleviation of the phantom sounds...

PURPOSE: Although many conservative management options are available for patients with non-surgical shoulder conditions, there is little evidence of their effectiveness. This review investigated one manual therapy approach, thrust manipulation, as a treatment option. METHODS: A systematic search was conducted of the electronic databases from inception to March 2016: PubMed, PEDro, ICL, CINAHL, and AMED. Two independent reviewers conducted the screening process to determine article eligibility...

Allston Julius Stubbs, Halis Atil Atilla
BACKGROUND: Despite the rapid advancement of imaging and arthroscopic techniques about the hip joint, missed diagnoses are still common. As a deep joint and compared to the shoulder and knee joints, localization of hip symptoms is difficult. Hip pathology is not easily isolated and is often related to intra and extra-articular abnormalities. In light of these diagnostic challenges, we recommend an algorithmic approach to effectively diagnoses and treat hip pain. METHODS: In this review, hip pain is evaluated from diagnosis to treatment in a clear decision model...

BACKGROUND: Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is a rare hereditary disorder that arises from heterozygous loss of function mutations in the runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2) gene. As RUNX2 is mainly expressed in osteoblasts, CCD typically affects the skeletal and dental systems. Few studies have investigated RUNX2 mutation effects on non-skeletal systems. Here, we describe limb-girdle myopathy, an uncommon phenotype of CCD, in a patient with a heterozygous missense mutation (p.R225Q) in the RUNX2 gene...
