We report a case of fibromatosis demonstrating prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-positive scan. A 76-year-old man was under assessment because of rising prostate-specific antigen level. Bone scan showed abnormal soft tissue uptake of Tc-MDP adjacent to the right scapula, compatible with a mass in MRI, thereafter. Because of the unavailability of Ga-PSMA scan in our department and also high cost in other centers, the patient underwent Lu-PSMA for more assessment, which revealed PSMA-avid mass. Pathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of low-grade fibromatosis...

BACKGROUND: Description of the native shape of a glenoid helps surgeons to preoperatively plan the position of a shoulder implant. A statistical shape model (SSM) can be used to virtually reconstruct a glenoid bone defect and to predict the inclination, version, and center position of the native glenoid. An SSM-based reconstruction method has already been developed for acetabular bone reconstruction. The goal of this study was to evaluate the SSM-based method for the reconstruction of glenoid bone defects and the prediction of native anatomic parameters...

OBJECTIVES: Pygathrix is an understudied Asian colobine unusual among the Old World monkeys for its use of arm-swinging. Little data exists on the anatomy and mechanics of brachiation in this genus. Here, we consider this colobine to gain insight into the parallel evolution of suspensory behavior in primates. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study compares axial and appendicular morphological variables of Pygathrix with other Asian colobines. Additionally, to assess the functional consequences of Pygathrix limb anatomy, kinematic and kinetic data during arm-swinging are included to compare the douc monkey to other suspensory primates (Ateles and Hylobates)...

BACKGROUND: The global range of motion of the arm is the result of a coordinated motion of the shoulder complex including glenohumeral (GH), scapulothoracic, sternoclavicular and acromioclavicular joints. METHODS: This study is a non-systematic review of kinematic patterns in degenerated shoulders. It is a based on our own research on the kinematics of the shoulder complex and clinical experience. RESULTS: For patients with subacromial impingement syndrome without rotator-cuff tears, most kinematic studies showed a small superior humeral translation relative to the glenoid and decreased scapular lateral rotation and posterior tilt...

BACKGROUND: How the shape of the glenoid defect being reconstructed influences stability in reversed shoulder arthroplasty has never been evaluated. The purpose of this study was to compare the reconstruction of two different shaped defects in reversed shoulder arthroplasty. METHODS: Two groups (ten Sawbone scapulae each) of oblique- and rectangular-shaped glenoid defects were tested biomechanically. On the anterior half of the glenoid, bony defects (rectangular and oblique shaped) were prepared and reconstructed subsequently with a graft and reversed shoulder arthroplasty...

BACKGROUND: Several etiologic factors have been postulated in overhead athletes according to their shoulder injuries, such as the scapular posture asymmetries. The measurement of the acromion border distance has been considered as reliable clinical test for evaluating the static scapula posture. The aim of this study was to quantify the differences in scapular posture between the dominant and non-dominant shoulders in two static positions in volleyball and swimmers athletes with asymptomatic shoulder injuries using the sliding calliper device...

Snapping scapula syndrome is a rare condition characterized by crepitus of the scapula on motion of the ipsilateral upper extremity. It may be quite painful and disabling. The majority of cases are due to bursal and muscular disorders. Snapping scapula syndrome secondary to an underlying osteochondroma is an even more infrequent phenomenon. The case presented highlights the unusual post pubertal growth of an osteochondroma of the scapula that progressed to develop a snapping scapular syndrome. Review of the literature revealed less than fifty reported cases of this phenomenon secondary to an underlying osteochondroma...

BACKGROUND: Sprengel deformity is a rare congenital shoulder girdle anomaly characterized by scapula malposition, periscapular muscle atrophy, and limited shoulder movement. Traditionally, it has been managed by omovertebral bar excision and muscle transplantation procedures guided by age and Cavendish grade. We present a unique observation in humans: a case series with Sprengel deformity possessing a cleithrum, an ancestral remnant of shoulder girdle development found in archaic bony fish...

A 4-year-old boy presented with swelling over the inferior tip of the scapula and an unclear history. Initial radiographic findings were concerning for an aggressive lesion. This case highlights how a multimodality imaging approach was used to relieve uncertainty by diagnosing a paediatric bowing type fracture of the scapular tip.

The levator scapulae muscle typically runs from the transverse process of the atlas to the superior angle of the scapula. In this paper, we describe a rare finding identified during a dissection of a male cadaver, wherein a continuation of the right levator scapulae ran past its normal attachment to the C1 transverse process, fusing with the inferior attachment of the rectus capitis lateralis muscle. No variants were found on the opposite side, and the innervation of the levator scapulae muscle variant was typical of that of a normal levator scapulae...

BACKGROUND: Although hydrotherapy is widely used to treat women with fibromyalgia, no studies have investigated the effects of this intervention on scapular kinematics in this population. This study verified the effectiveness of a hydrotherapy program on scapular kinematics, pain and quality of life in women with fibromyalgia. METHODS: Twenty women completed the study and performed three evaluations before treatment (to establish a baseline), and two other evaluations (after 8 and 16weeks of hydrotherapy) at the end of treatment...

BACKGROUND: Version correction via eccentric reaming reduces clinically important retroversion in Walch type B2 glenoids (those with substantial glenoid retroversion and a second, sclerotic neoglenoid cavity) before total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). Clinically, an increased risk of glenoid component loosening in B2 glenoids was hypothesized to be the result of compromised glenoid bone quality attributable to eccentric reaming. However, no established guidelines exist regarding how much version correction can be applied without compromising the quality of glenoid bone...

BACKGROUND: Pectoralis minor compression syndrome (PMCS) is a compression of the neurovascular structures in the sub-pectoral tunnel and remains underestimated in the management of patients with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). Its underdiagnosis may be responsible for incomplete or failed treatment. The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of PMCS in our experience. METHOD: We retrospectively reviewed all patients treated for TOS in our department. We selected those in whom PMCS was diagnosed with a systematic dynamic arteriography...

Patient-reported quality of life (QoL) outcomes have the potential to assist clinicians in providing individually tailored treatment decisions. QoL assessments were collected prospectively for 168 consecutive patients treated for oral cancer between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2014 using the University of Washington Quality of Life Questionnaire. Patients were followed up for 18 months post-treatment. Sub-group analyses were performed using paired t-tests and analysis of variance (ANOVA) to compare the effects of adjunctive chemoradiotherapy, type of bone resection, and methods of soft and hard tissue flap reconstruction...
