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.

The purpose of the study is to compare two different rehabilitation protocols after arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery.
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,...
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...
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...
To compare bridging reconstruction to superior capsular reconstruction using human dermal allograft augmentation for repair of massive rotator cuff tears.
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. ...
A rotator cuff tear (RCT) induces fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) expression, resulting in ectopic fat accumulation in the rotator cuff muscle.
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...
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...
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...
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.

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)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
