The main cause of instability after unconstrained shoulder prosthesis is soft tissue deficiency.
TLDR
The major cause of instability in this series was soft tissue deficiency, and most of the patients required conversion, and the platform system used made conversions easier. Expand
Outcome of lower trapezius transfer to reconstruct massive irreparable posterior-superior rotator cuff tear.
TLDR
Transfer of the lower trapezius prolonged with Achilles tendon allograft to reconstruct massive irreparable posterior-superior rotator cuff tear may lead to good outcome in most patients, specifically for those who have preoperative flexion of >60°. Expand
Arthroscopic Subacromial Spacer Implantation in Patients With Massive Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears: Clinical and Radiographic Results of 39 Retrospectives Cases.
TLDR
Arthroscopic implantation of a subacromial spacer for irreparable rotator cuff tear leads to significant improvement in shoulder function at a minimum of 1 year postoperatively. Expand
Arthroscopically-Assisted Latissimus Dorsi Transfer for Irreparable Rotator Cuff Insufficiency: Modes of Failure and Clinical Correlation.
TLDR
With complete healing of LDT, the outcome is significantly lower in those with rupture compared with those without rupture, showing that LDT can efficiently treat massive and irreparable RCT. Expand
Is previous nonarthroplasty surgery a risk factor for periprosthetic infection in primary shoulder arthroplasty?
TLDR
The risk of infection after primary SA is significantly higher in patients with a history of prior non-arthroplasty-related surgery, and potential preoperative and intraoperative workup should be undertaken to identify at-risk patients. Expand
Return to Sport After Shoulder Arthroplasty in Recreational Athletes: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
Most patients returned to sport after surgery, and all who return to sport were practicing their sport in the 3 months before surgery. Expand
Orthopedic complications of linear morphea: Implications for early interdisciplinary care
TLDR
Joint contractures were most common, affecting 88% of patients, followed by limb atrophy, angular deformity, and limb length discrepancy; 14% required surgical intervention. Expand
Carpal tunnel syndrome pathophysiology: role of subsynovial connective tissue.
TLDR
The creation of a shear injury of the SSCT in a rabbit model induced similar modifications to what is observed in CTS, suggesting that this could be a pathway leading to idiopathic CTS. Expand
Is bipolar latissimus dorsi transfer a reliable option to restore elbow flexion in children with arthrogryposis? A review of 13 tendon transfers.
TLDR
Pedicled bipolar latissimus dorsi transfer is suggested as a reliable therapeutic option to restore active elbow flexion in arthrogryposis with acceptable results regarding regaining range of motion and patient satisfaction. Expand
Long-term results of latissimus dorsi transfer for internal rotation contracture of the shoulder in patients with obstetric brachial plexus injury
TLDR
Although the short-tem results of latissimus dorsi transfer and subscapularis release are encouraging, these gains deteriorated over a longitudinal follow-up period, leading to functional impairment. Expand
