Treatment of painful pseudoparesis due to irreparable rotator cuff dysfunction with the Delta III reverse-ball-and-socket total shoulder prosthesis.
BACKGROUND The Delta III reverse-ball-and-socket total shoulder implant is designed to restore overhead shoulder function in the presence of irreparable rotator cuff deficiency by using the intactExpand

The Results of Repair of Massive Tears of the Rotator Cuff*†
Background: Massive tears of the tendons of the rotator cuff cause atrophy and fatty degeneration of the rotator cuff muscles and painful loss of function of the shoulder. Repair of massive rotatorExpand

Fatty degeneration of the muscles of the rotator cuff: assessment by computed tomography versus magnetic resonance imaging.
Forty-one patients scheduled for shoulder surgery underwent computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination of their affected shoulder to verify whether fatty degenerationExpand

A review of the Constant score: modifications and guidelines for its use.
The requirement to assess surgical results and the means of quantifying them have always provoked intense debate. Since Codman’s introduction of ‘‘the end result idea,’’ the main aim in assessmentExpand

Is there an association between the individual anatomy of the scapula and the development of rotator cuff tears or osteoarthritis of the glenohumeral joint?: A radiological study of the critical
We hypothesised that a large acromial cover with an upwardly tilted glenoid fossa would be associated with degenerative rotator cuff tears (RCTs), and conversely, that a short acromion with anExpand

Mechanical strength of repairs of the rotator cuff.
We have studied the mechanical properties of several current techniques of tendon-to-bone suture employed in rotator-cuff repair. Non-absorbable braided polyester and absorbable polyglactin andExpand

Comparison of the subjective shoulder value and the Constant score.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the subjective shoulder value (SSV) and to compare it with the Constant score (CS). The SSV is defined as a patient's subjective shoulder assessmentExpand
