Impact of Humeral Component Version on Outcomes Following RTSA

2017-04-13 03:53:21 | BioPortfolio


The proposed study is a prospective, single-blinded, randomized trial to investigate the impact of humeral component version on shoulder range of motion and patient reported functional outcomes following reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.


Retrospective clinical evidence suggests that increasing humeral component retroversion does not affect measured internal or external rotation, however patients with neutral version may experience better function with daily activities requiring internal rotation compared to those with 20 degrees of retroversion6. Prospective data on clinical outcomes comparing different humeral component versions in RTSA is currently lacking. The proposed study is a prospective, single-blinded, randomized trial to investigate the impact of humeral component version on shoulder range of motion and patient reported functional outcomes following reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Significant alterations in temperature of the human body, above or below 98.6 degrees F. or 37 degrees C. when taken orally.

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.
