Anatomical glenoid reconstruction via a J-bone graft for recurrent posttraumatic anterior shoulder dislocation.

22:12 EDT 20th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Anatomical glenoid reconstruction via a J-bone graft for recurrent posttraumatic anterior shoulder dislocation."


OBJECTIVE:
To reconstruct the anatomical glenoid shape in cases of osseous glenoid rim defects after recurrent posttraumatic anterior shoulder dislocation to restore stability without severely compromising the range of motion.
INDICATIONS:
Osseous glenoid defects after recurrent posttraumatic anterior shoulder dislocation. Suitable for primary stabilization as well as for revision surgery in cases previously operated on.
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Recurrent anterior shoulder dislocations without glenoid rim defects. Hyperlax shoulders with multidirectional instability. Patients over 60 years of age due to compromised bone quality. Teenage patients due to incomplete apophyseal fusion at the iliac crest. SURGICAL
TECHNIQUE:
The subscapularis tendon and capsule are split. The humeral head is retracted laterally, and the glenoid defect is prepared and abraded with a rasp. A bicortical iliac crest bone block including crest and outer cortex is harvested and molded in a J-shaped manner. To incorporate the graft, a crevice on the glenoid rim is produced using a chisel. The keel is fitted into the preformed crevice with a spiked impactor. The graft's surface is contoured using a high-speed burr.
RESULTS:
A total of 47 shoulders were followed-up after an average of 90 months (range 25-152 months). The mean Rowe scores were 94.3 for the affected shoulder and 96.8 for the uninjured shoulder. The Constant scores reached 93.5 and 95 points, respectively. Loss of external rotation was 4.4°. In addition, 24 shoulders were followed-up by computed tomography (CT). There were no recurrences, with the exception of one traumatic graft fracture. Of 19 patients with arthropathy at follow-up, 11 already had arthropathy prior to the procedure.

Arthroscopic distal tibial allograft augmentation for posterior shoulder instability with glenoid bone loss.

Glenoid bone loss is commonly associated with recurrent shoulder instability. Failure to recognize and appropriately address it can lead to poor outcomes. Numerous studies have found anterior-inferior...

Evolving concept of bipolar bone loss and the hill-sachs lesion: from "engaging/non-engaging" lesion to "on-track/off-track" lesion.

For anterior instability with glenoid bone loss comprising 25% or more of the inferior glenoid diameter (inverted-pear glenoid), the consensus of recent authors is that glenoid bone grafting should be...

How can we optimize anterior iliac crest bone harvesting? An anatomical and radiological study.

Anterior iliac crest bone is a widely used donor site for bone harvesting. It provides an autologous bone graft consisting of cancellous bone that can be packed or cortical bone with greater structura...

Does the presence of glenoid bone loss influence coracoid bone graft osteolysis after the Latarjet procedure? A computed tomography scan study in 2 groups of patients with and without glenoid bone loss.

Coracoid bone graft osteolysis and fibrous union are the principal causes of failure in patients treated with the Latarjet procedure. This study aims to investigate the hypothesis that coracoid bone g...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.

Death of a bone or part of a bone, either atraumatic or posttraumatic.

The compartment containing the inferior part and anterior extremities of the frontal lobes (FRONTAL LOBE) of the cerebral hemispheres. It is formed mainly by orbital parts of the FRONTAL BONE and the lesser wings of the SPHENOID BONE.

The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.

A light and spongy (pneumatized) bone that lies between the orbital part of FRONTAL BONE and the anterior of SPHENOID BONE. Ethmoid bone separates the ORBIT from the ETHMOID SINUS. It consists of a horizontal plate, a perpendicular plate, and two lateral labyrinths.
