Glenohumeral arthritis secondary to massive rotator cuff tear presents with a superior displacement and femoralization of the humeral head with coracoacromial arch acetabularization. The purpose of this study was to establish prevalence of rotator cuff tear artropathy (CTA) at our institution.
Shoulder instability and rotator cuff pathology can provide a challenging problem, especially in the revision setting. Allograft use in primary or revision surgical intervention for shoulder instability and rotator cuff tear may be a valuable resource. This paper reviews allograft tissue use in shoulder surgery for instability and rotator cuff tear.
The objective of this study was to investigate whether rotator cuff tear morphology could be visualized using radial MRI. We retrospectively investigated 52 shoulders that underwent preoperative MRI and arthroscopy for a complete rotator cuff tear. The tear length and width were measured using oblique coronal, axial, and radial MRI. Arthroscopic findings were compared with the tear morphology. Tear morphology was visualized using oblique coronal and axial MRI for 24 of the 52 shoulders (46%), and radial MRI...
Certain metabolic factors have been proposed as risk factors for a posterosuperior rotator cuff tear. Although metabolic syndrome is of increasing concern in industrialized societies, little information exists regarding its association with posterosuperior rotator cuff tears. The purpose of this study was to determine the risk factors for an atraumatic posterosuperior rotator cuff tear, including metabolic factors and metabolic syndrome.
A 'terrible triad' of anterior shoulder dislocation, axillary nerve damage and rotator cuff tear has been previously described. However, we are unaware of any report of anterior shoulder dislocation, humeral fracture, axillary neuropathy and subsequent rotator cuff tear requiring surgery when the axillary neuropathy was deemed permanent. We report the case of a 20-year-old woman who fell in a motocross accident and had an anterior shoulder dislocation, humeral fracture and axillary neuropathy. The fracture ...
To introduce a (semi-)quantitative surgical score for the classification of rotator cuff tears.
Conversion to full-thickness tear in partial-thickness rotator cuff tears (PTRCTs) is based on the quality and thickness of the normal-looking untorn rotator cuff layer. However, whether the untorn tendon is a healthy tissue remains to be elucidated.
The purpose of this study was to analyze factors relating to delamination in full-thickness rotator cuff tears.
Few studies have reported on the radiological characteristics and repair integrity of coexistent rotator cuff tears (RCTs) and shoulder stiffness after simultaneous arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and capsular release.
Until now, few studies had investigated the neuropathic pain component in patients with a rotator cuff tear (RCT).
Several factors that affect the healing rate of shoulder rotator cuff tears have been elucidated, including tear size, degree of retraction, and degree of muscle atrophy. Identifying these factors preoperatively is critical for appropriate surgical planning and patient counseling. Ultrasound can be used to predict rotator cuff stiffness, which could result in a way to better plan for rotator cuff surgeries.
The purpose of this review is to discuss the indications for reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) in the treatment of massive rotator cuff tear (MCT), review the reported outcomes in the literature, and outline our approach and surgical technique for treating these patients.
This study aimed to evaluate the clinical outcomes and structural integrity of arthroscopic repair of intratendinous rotator cuff tear.
Due to the highly organized tissue and avascular nature of the rotator cuff, rotator cuff tears have limited ability to heal after the tendon is reinserted directly on the greater tubercle of the humerus. Consequently, retears are among the most common complications after rotator cuff repair. Augmentation of rotator cuff repairs with patches has been an active area of research in recent years to reduce retear rate.
Rotator cuff tears are rare injuries in adolescents but cause significant morbidity if unrecognized. Previous literature on rotator cuff repairs in adolescents is limited to small case series, with few data to guide treatment.
A well-functioning rotator cuff is necessary for successful anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). This study evaluated patients who underwent concomitant TSA and rotator cuff repair (RCR) for functional outcomes, revision rates, and predictors of poor results. Retrospective chart review was conducted to identify patients who underwent TSA and RCR. Demographic data, rotator cuff tear and RCR characteristics, range of motion, and radiographs were recorded. Minimum 2-year functional outcomes were obtaine...
Massive rotator cuff tears (RCTs) begin as primary tendon injuries and cause a myriad of changes in the muscle, including atrophy, fatty infiltration (FI), and fibrosis. However, it is unclear which changes are most closely associated with muscle function.
Rotator cuff tears remain a significant clinical problem with a high incidence rate and severe clinical burden. Previous computational models developed to study rotator cuff tears have not modeled tissue damage and tear propagation. The objective of this study was to predict tear propagation for various combinations of tear size and location using an experimentally validated finite element model of supraspinatus tendon. It was hypothesized that larger rotator cuff tears propagate at lower loads than smaller...
The purpose of this study was to identify the tear pattern that could be anatomically repaired by preserving the remaining tendon on footprint and evaluate clinical outcomes of patients who underwent remaining tendon preserving cuff repair.
The rotator cuff muscles are prominent stabilizers of the shoulder and are vulnerable to muscle fatigue. Rotator cuff fatigue may result in subacromial impingement (SAI) through the superior translation of the humeral head. Scapular changes have been reported inconsistently, but may prevent SAI. The purpose of this study was to quantify changes in scapular kinematics, as well as muscle activity during glenohumeral motions following targeted rotator cuff fatigue. Ten healthy men completed four planar glenohu...
The critical shoulder angle (CSA) is the angle created between the superior and inferior bone margins of the glenoid and the most lateral border of the acromion. A few studies recently investigated the relation between CSA and functional outcomes after rotator cuff repair. However, there is a lack of research investigating the effect of CSA on postoperative tendon integrity after rotator cuff repair.
