The Postero-superior Contact and Rotator Cuff Lesion

2019-09-19 03:56:44 | BioPortfolio


The possibility of physiological contact between the deep surface of the tendon of the supraspinatus muscle and the labrum and/or posterior superior glenoidal rim during an armed movement of the arm (abduction and external rotation or ABER position) has been described for many years. The physiological hypotheses put forward to explain this contact are first of all that the intrinsic mobility of the scapulohumeral joint is limited by these 2 structures, that an anterior instability or micro-instability induces an abnormal anterior translation when performing an abduction and lateral rotation movement, or finally that there is a decrease in humeral retroversion. When this contact becomes symptomatic, it is called a posterior superior conflict. This pathology is mainly found in throwing athletes or athletes repeating maximum external rotation in the abducted position of the arm. This conflict is also described among some manual workers, and is then observed in an older age group.

In Vivo Glenoid Track Width Can Be Better Predicted With the Use of Shoulder Horizontal Extension Angle.

The glenoid track concept has been widely used to assess the risk of instability caused by a bipolar lesion. The mean glenoid track width is reported to be 83% of the glenoid width. However, this widt...

Glenoid reconstruction in revision shoulder arthroplasty.

The aim of the surgical technique is the stable fixation of a glenoid baseplate and reconstruction of bone loss with correction of version, inclination, and medialization of the joint line.

Glenoid retroversion is an important factor for humeral head centration and the biomechanics of posterior shoulder stability.

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...

Long-term follow-up of total shoulder replacement surgery with inset glenoid implants for arthritis with deficient bone.

Total shoulder replacement surgery has been a successful treatment for patients with shoulder arthritis. However, long-term results are limited by complications such as glenoid loosening, wear, and in...
