Surgical safety and effectiveness in orthopedics: Swiss-wide multicenter evaluation and prediction of core outcomes in arthroscopic rotator cuff reconstruction


In this project prospective data are collected from a representative group of specialized clinics performing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) to serve as reference baseline and outcome values, as well as the development of prediction models for individual patients.

Clinical Trials [1259 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

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.

Outcome Following Surgery to Repair Rotator Cuff Tears

There are two ways in which surgeons repair rotator cuff tears. An open method involves making an incision (cut) 5-6 inches in length in the skin and repairing the tear with the skin open,...

Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Tear Repair: Single Versus Double Layer Fixation

Retear rates after arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs remain unsatisfactorily high. Recently, attention has been paid to restore the rotator cuff's native anatomy by reconstructing the supe...

Treatment of Atraumatic Rotator Cuff Rupture in Elderly Patients

The purpose of the investigators study is to compare the effect of: 1) physiotherapy 2) arthroscopic acromioplasty and debridement or 3) arthroscopic rotator cuff reconstruction and acromi...

Massive Rotator Cuff Tear Reconstruction

To compare bridging reconstruction to superior capsular reconstruction using human dermal allograft augmentation for repair of massive rotator cuff tears.

Midterm outcomes of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair in patients aged 75 years and older.

Full-thickness rotator cuff tears remain a significant cause of pain and dysfunction in the elderly. Substantial improvement in pain and functional outcomes with arthroscopic cuff repair is possible. ...

Effect of Fatty Acid-Binding Protein 4 Inhibition on Rotator Cuff Muscle Quality: Histological, Biomechanical, and Biomolecular Analysis.

A rotator cuff tear (RCT) induces fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) expression, resulting in ectopic fat accumulation in the rotator cuff muscle.

Surgical Versus Nonsurgical Management of Rotator Cuff Tears: A Matched-Pair Analysis.

Rotator cuff disease is a major medical and economic burden due to a growing aging population, but management of rotator cuff tears remains controversial. We hypothesized that there is no difference i...

Acupuncture for symptomatic rotator cuff disease: Protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Rotator cuff disease (RCD) consists of subacromial impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tendinopathy or tendinitis, partial or full rotator cuff tear, calcific tendinitis, and subacromial bursitis. Acup...

Depression increases the risk of rotator cuff tear and rotator cuff repair surgery: A nationwide population-based study.

Chronic inflammation is known to be associated with both rotator cuff tears (RCTs) and depression. However, no epidemiological studies with a longitudinal follow-up have been performed to prove this a...

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.

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.

Instruments for measuring arterial blood pressure consisting of an inflatable cuff, inflating bulb, and a gauge showing the blood pressure. (Stedman, 26th ed)
