Clinical Outcome Comparison Between Medial and Lateral Offset Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty

2014-08-27 03:15:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate two FDA approved implant designs for the Tornier Reverse Shoulder arthroplasty. The small difference in design is the amount of offset each implant has. This offset may improve clinical outcomes in the patient population. There have been no clinical comparative studies between these two designs in the literature to date. We would like to follow these patients for two years after implantation of the reverse shoulder and evaluate their radiographs, pain scores, and shoulder functional scores. this would be the first randomized prospective single blinded study of its kind.

Description

The combination of shoulder arthritis and rotator cuff deficiency presents quite a surgical challenge. The reverse prosthesis offers a treatment option for subset of patients as previous attempts to treat with soft tissue reconstruction or conventional arthroplasty have provided sub-optimal clinical results. Numerous reports in the literature have validated the effectiveness of the reverse design.

Patients meeting criteria must be between the ages of 50 and 95 years of age and are a candidate for a reverse shoulder arthroplasty. This is includes patients with rotator cuff tear arthroplasty, irreparable rotator cuff tears, significant proximal humerus fractures and malunions, and chronic proximal humerus dislocators. A total of 40 patients will be enrolled and randomized to either one of two groups; 20 patients will be randomized to the Tornier Reversed shoulder Arthroplasty Medial offset, and 20 will receive the Lateral offset design. Both implants are FDA approved. The patients will be followed for 24 months and will follow-up will be at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months and 24 months questionnaires will be completed at each visit, x-rays will be done at pre-op, 3 month, 6 months 12 and 24 months.

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.

The tear-forming and tear-conducting system which includes the lacrimal glands, eyelid margins, conjunctival sac, and the tear drainage system.
