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.
Osseous glenoid defects after recurrent posttraumatic anterior shoulder dislocation. Suitable for primary stabilization as well as for revision surgery in cases previously operated on.
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
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.
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.

Anterior glenoid bone loss is present in nearly all cases of recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability. Treating glenoid bone loss in the setting of recurrent instability is challenging, and often, ...
Complex glenoid deformities present the most difficult challenges in shoulder arthroplasty. These deformities may be caused by severe degenerative or congenital deformity, posttraumatic anatomy, tumor...
Shoulder dislocations are a common injury, with anterior shoulder dislocation among male patients being the most common presentation. A patient with recurrent shoulder instability, anterior-superior e...
Nowadays, bone tunnel enlargement (BTE) after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is a well-known phenomenon. It has been identified, investigated and described by many authors during the last t...
The optimal graft for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) remains controversial.
The objective of this study is to investigate arthroscopic treatments of recurrent anterior shoulder instability. Functional outcomes of arthroscopic anatomic glenoid reconstruction with b...
The objective of this prospective study is to assess the clinical, functional and radiological outcomes of three different ACL reconstruction procedures: Bone Patella Bone graft, Single bu...
To investigate if the use of autologous bone graft around the anchor-peg glenoid prosthesis correlates with bony apposition on computed tomography scans, decreased radiolucent lines and co...
The purpose of the study is to study the effect of anatomical direct insertion ACL reconstruction compared with conventional anatomical ACL reconstruction.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of four strong ligaments connecting the bones of the knee joint. If overstretched, the ACL can tear. Reconstruction of a torn ACL is now a commo...
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.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
