The increased humeral retroversion on the dominant side of throwing athletes is thought to result from repetitive throwing motion. Little Leaguer's shoulder-a rotational stress fracture of the proximal humeral epiphyseal plate-may influence the risk of humeral retroversion and injury of the shoulder or elbow joint.

Glenoid retroversion is a known independent risk factor for recurrent posterior instability. The purpose was to investigate progressive angles of glenoid retroversion and their influence on humeral he...
Augmentation of proximal humeral fracture fixation with an endosteal fibular allograft has increased in popularity because it biomechanically improves construct stability and potentially may lead to a...
The emergence of minimally invasive techniques has expanded the use of plates and improved their safety for the repair of humeral diaphyseal fractures with proximal extension. In this study, we aimed ...
In vitro wear studies demonstrate decreased polyethylene wear with a ceramic compared with a metal humeral head. In this in vivo study, we analyzed prospectively collected 5-year data, comparing the ...
Proximal humeral fractures are a commonly encountered injury; however, no consensus has been reached for the ideal treatment. Current surgical fixation options include plate, plate with fibular strut ...
To investigate the assumption that reversed shoulder prosthetic replacement will give a better functional outcome compared to open reduction and internal fixation with an angular stable pl...
Prospective non-randomized, open, unicentric clinical trial to compare two different treatments for Three-four parts fractures of proximal humerus (Neer's Classification) in elderly patien...
The aim of the study is to compare the results regarding fracture healing and functional outcome after the treatment of proximal humeral fractures with the four different treatment metho...
Reverse shoulder prosthesis has recently emerged as an acute treatment for complex proximal humeral fractures. Promising functional results have been reported in observational papers. How...
Proximal humeral fractures are common injuries with the highest incidence being amongst the elderly. Most proximal humeral fractures are nondisplaced or minimally displaced. The majority o...
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

A depression in the lateral angle of the scapula that articulates with the HUMERAL HEAD.
The portion of the upper rounded extremity fitting into the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA. (from Stedman, 27th ed)
Fractures of the HUMERUS.
A condition characterized by pain in or near the lateral humeral epicondyle or in the forearm extensor muscle mass as a result of unusual strain. It occurs in tennis players as well as housewives, artisans, and violinists.
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 ...
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
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...
