Humeral Retroversion and Injury Risk After Proximal Humeral Epiphysiolysis (Little Leaguer's Shoulder).

08:00 EDT 4th October 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Humeral Retroversion and Injury Risk After Proximal Humeral Epiphysiolysis (Little Leaguer's Shoulder)."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)

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.
