Treatment of distal clavicle fracture: a systematic review of treatment modalities in 425 fractures
The nonunion rate is high, however, the functional outcome is acceptable in most of the cases with nonunion, and the intramedullary screw fixation, CC stabilization and interfragmentary fixation would be preferred because of their low complication rate. Expand
Prognostic factors affecting anatomic outcome of rotator cuff repair and correlation with functional outcome.
The fatty degeneration of the infraspinatus muscle served as an independent predictor of the postoperative integrity of the rotator cuff, and the functional outcome did not correlate with the anatomic outcome. Expand
Within-day reliability of shoulder range of motion measurement with a smartphone.
Considering convenience and cost-effectiveness, this new method for the shoulder ROM measurement using the inclinometer application on a smartphone could be widely used for measuring the shoulderROM, although the between-day reliability needs to be established first. Expand

High energy injuries, severe fractures, and the female gender contribute to the development of CRPS I after the surgical treatment of a distal radius fracture (DRF). Expand
Moderate preoperative shoulder stiffness does not alter the clinical outcome of rotator cuff repair with arthroscopic release and manipulation.
This study suggests that moderate preoperative shoulder stiffness does not affect clinical outcomes of rotator cuff repair if arthroscopic capsular release with manipulation is added to the index procedure. Expand
Comparison of the Cellular Composition and Cytokine-Release Kinetics of Various Platelet-Rich Plasma Preparations
The DS method generally led to a higher concentration of platelet relative to the SS method, however, the cytokine content was not necessarily proportional to the cellular composition of the PRPs, as the greater content could be different between the SS or DS method depending on the type of cytokine.

To What Degree do Shoulder Outcome Instruments Reflect Patients’ Psychologic Distress?
Shoulder outcome measures reflected different psychologic aspects of illness behavior, and the contributions made by psychologic distress to different shoulder outcome instruments apparently differed. Expand
Is Early Passive Motion Exercise Necessary After Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair?
It is suggested that early passive motion exercise is not mandatory after arthroscopic repair of small to medium-sized full-thickness rotator cuff tears, and postoperative rehabilitation can be modified to ensure patient compliance. Expand
Effectiveness of multidetector computed tomography arthrography for the diagnosis of shoulder pathology: comparison with magnetic resonance imaging with arthroscopic correlation.
The data suggest that CTA is a cost-effective, useful method in the preoperative evaluation of labral abnormalities, such as Bankart and SLAP lesions, and may also be useful for the detection of full-thickness rotator cuff tears. Expand
Comparative Evaluation of the Measurement Properties of Various Shoulder Outcome Instruments
There was no single shoulder outcome instrument that was superior to the others in terms of the measurement properties, and most of the tested shoulder outcome instruments did not reflect health-related quality of life well and poorly correlated with each other. Expand
