Factors Associated With Full Recovery After Surgical Repair of Shoulder Instability

2016-12-01 16:08:21 | BioPortfolio


Case control study to evaluate different factors (e.g muscle strength, psychological factors) that are associated with full recovery and functional status 6 months after surgical repair of shoulder instability.


In this study the investigators will try to find correlations between different factors and functional abilities of patients 6 months post shoulder surgery.

Patients will be examined in a single encounter for muscle strength, fear avoidance beliefs and functional abilities.

Functional abilities will be examined using two validated questionnaires:

1. The Western Ontario Shoulder Instability index (WOSI)

2. Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH)

Fear avoidance will be evaluated using the Fear Avoidance Belief Questionnaire (FABQ)

Muscle strength of the rotator cuff muscles will be measured using Biodex Isokinetic system, model 4.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Chronic progressive degeneration of the stress-bearing portion of a joint, with bizarre hypertrophic changes at the periphery. It is probably a complication of a variety of neurologic disorders, particularly TABES DORSALIS, involving loss of sensation, which leads to relaxation of supporting structures and chronic instability of the joint. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Lack of stability of a joint or joint prosthesis. Factors involved are intra-articular disease and integrity of extra-articular structures such as joint capsule, ligaments, and muscles.

Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.

Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.

Genetic disorder of mucopolysaccharide metabolism characterized by skeletal abnormalities, joint instability, development of cervical myelopathy, and excessive urinary keratan sulfate. There are two biochemically distinct forms, each due to a deficiency of a different enzyme.
