BACKGROUND The present study aims to add to the body of evidence delineating the learning curve for a shoulder surgeon to become proficient in focussed ultrasound for the detection of full-thickness rotator cuff tears, as well as to describe a learning method for this skill. METHODS Consecutive patients who were scheduled to undergo an arthroscopy for(More)
INTRODUCTION Misinterpretation of the Rockwood classification system for acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) separations has resulted in a trend towards using unilateral radiographs for grading. Further, the use of weighted views to 'unmask' a grade III injury has fallen out of favour. Recent evidence suggests that many radiographic grade III injuries represent(More)
CONTEXT Good preparation for surgical procedures has been linked to better performance and enhanced learning in the operating theatre. Mental imagery is increasingly used to enhance performance in competitive sport and there has been recent interest in applying this in surgery. OBJECTIVES This study aims to identify the mental imagery components of(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to validate the Functional Shoulder Score (FSS), a new patient-reported outcome score specifically designed to evaluate patients with rotator cuff disorders. METHODS One hundred and nineteen patients were assessed using two shoulder scoring systems [the FSS and the Constant-Murley Score (CMS)] at 3 weeks(More)
BACKGROUND Few series report the results of total elbow replacement (TER) in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Most report the use of a linked implant. There are theoretical benefits to using an unlinked prosthesis, and thus we report our experience of the clinical benefit and survivorship of both this implant and a linked semiconstrained(More)
