Role of proinflammatory factors in Patients with Rotator Cuff Disease
To measure the levels of various cytokines and metalloproteases in patients with rotator cuff disease, and control group and to determine the correlations among them.
We hypothesize that cytokines and MMP's level will be significantly higher in patients with RC pathology than in control group and will be related to the time frame since injury (i.e. - higher levels as close to the injury). In addition we will examine possible relation of those levels to the pain curve by using Visual Analogue Scale.

The purpose of this study is to examine deficits in activation and motor patterns, as well as central drive in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy. There are three specific aims: (1) d...
This trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of the ArthroFLEX® ECM scaffold graph as an augment in rotator cuff repair surgery to reduce the failure rate of rotator cuff repairs for large...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the immobilization period is helpful for the better healing of repaired rotator cuff. The investigators hypothesis is that the longer imm...
The purpose of the study is to compare two different rehabilitation protocols after arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery.
The overall goal of doing this study is to improve long term patient function and outcomes in the healing rates of Rotator Cuffs. The investigators would also like to see if this method ca...
Due to the highly organized tissue and avascular nature of the rotator cuff, rotator cuff tears have limited ability to heal after the tendon is reinserted directly on the greater tubercle of the hume...
Shoulder instability and rotator cuff pathology can provide a challenging problem, especially in the revision setting. Allograft use in primary or revision surgical intervention for shoulder instabili...
Few studies have reported on the radiological characteristics and repair integrity of coexistent rotator cuff tears (RCTs) and shoulder stiffness after simultaneous arthroscopic rotator cuff repair an...
Several factors that affect the healing rate of shoulder rotator cuff tears have been elucidated, including tear size, degree of retraction, and degree of muscle atrophy. Identifying these factors pre...
Massive and irreparable rotator cuff tears are difficult to manage surgically. One technique is to use a synthetic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) patch to bridge the tear. However, there is little inf...
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.

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.
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)
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
