Young Collision Athletes have High Rate of Return to Play and Good Clinical Outcomes Following Open Latarjet Procedure
The purpose of this study was to evaluate return to play (RTP), clinical outcomes and recurrence rates in collision athletes 20 years of age and younger who underwent open Latarjet for anterior shoulder instability.
Elbow hemiarthroplasty and total elbow arthroplasty provided a similar functional outcome for unreconstructable distal humeral fractures in patients aged 60 years or older: a multicenter randomized controlled trial
Semiconstrained total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is an established treatment for elderly patients with distal humeral fractures not amenable to stable internal fixation (unreconstructable).
How to Avoid Shoulder Pain at Work
Long periods of physical work involving positioning the arms over the shoulder and excessive load on the shoulders are common direct causes of shoulder pain.
Patients shown to do better when surgeon averages over 10 shoulder replacement ops a year
Patients treated by surgeons who average over 10 shoulder replacements a year have a lower risk of reoperation and serious complications, and a shorter hospital stay than those treated by surgeons who do fewer operations, finds a study published by The BMJ today.
Patients had improvements in sleep comfortability following shoulder arthroplasty
Results published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found patients who underwent anatomic total or reverse shoulder arthroplasty had “significant and rapid” improvements in sleep disturbance after surgery.
New Bionic Implant Allows Control of All Fingers
A multinational team of engineers and surgeons has developed a bionic hand with a high level of function in every finger -- a significant advance for amputees.
Surgical Intervention Following a First Traumatic Anterior Shoulder Dislocation is Worthy of Consideration
Up to 60% of patients experience recurrence after a first traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation (FTASD), which is often defined as having experienced either dislocation or subluxation. Thus, surgical intervention following a FTASD is worthy of consideration and is guided by the number of patients that need to receive surgical intervention to prevent one redislocation (i.e., Number Needed to Treat), (subjective) health benefit, complication risk, and costs.
Reliability of Ulnar Collateral Ligament Findings on Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) tears are common in baseball players. While MRI is the most utilized imaging modality for UCL injuries, the inter-rater reliability of MRI analyzing specific characteristics of UCL pathology has not been defined.
