Neurophysiology of Weakness and Exercise in Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

The purpose of this study is to examine deficits in activation and motor patterns, as well as central drive in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy. There are three specific aims: (1) d...

LifeNet: Extracellular Matrix Graft in Rotator Cuff Repair

This trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of the ArthroFLEX® ECM scaffold graph as an augment in rotator cuff repair surgery to reduce the failure rate of rotator cuff repairs for large...

Duration of Immobilization After Rotator Cuff Repair: Its Clinical Impact

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the immobilization period is helpful for the better healing of repaired rotator cuff. The investigators hypothesis is that the longer imm...

Early Active Rehabilitation After Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair

The purpose of the study is to compare two different rehabilitation protocols after arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery.

Long Term Prognosis of MRI Diagnosed Partial Thickness Tears of the Rotator Cuff

Patients diagnosed with partial thickness tears of the rotator cuff are sometimes surgically repaired, while other cases are not. It is unknown how patients fare over time without electing...

Allograft Use in Shoulder Surgery: Instability and Rotator Cuff.

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 instabili...

Rotator cuff tear following long-standing axillary neuropathy in a female motocross racer.

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, ...

A Rotator Cuff Tear Concomitant With Shoulder Stiffness Is Associated With a Lower Retear Rate After 1-Stage Arthroscopic Surgery.

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 an...

Efficacy of concomitant acromioplasty in the treatment of rotator cuff tears: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Scientific evidence is not clear regarding the routine use of acromioplasty in the treatment of rotator cuff repair. The aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes between patients undergoing ...

Editorial Commentary: Rotator Cuff Surgery Planning: Yet Another Reason for Orthopedic Surgeons to Learn to Use Ultrasound….

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 pre...

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)

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.

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.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.
