A retrospective review of 3,200 advanced laparoscopic procedures demonstrated five brachial plexus injuries during a 5-month period in 1986 (0.16% incidence rate). Brachial plexus injury can occur during laparoscopic surgery using steep Trendelenburg's position with shoulder braces and the patient's arm extended at 90 degrees. Position modification can(More)
Proprioception is an essential part of shoulder stability and neuromuscular control. The purpose of the study was the development of a precise system of shoulder proprioception assessment in the active mode (Propriometr). For that purpose, devices such as the electronic goniometer and computer software had been designed. A pilot study was carried out on a(More)
Injured cartilage has a limited capacity to heal itself. Untreated damage leads to secondary osteoarthritis. There is a need to find a way to reconstruct cartilage in order to prevent secondary osteoarthritis. The aim this study was to evaluate and compare the chondrogenic potential of three different cell materials: perichonrdrial grafts, periosteal grafts(More)
The main purpose of this study is to establish which of two methods is more reliable in glenoid assessment for instability in pre-operative planning. Accordingly, we have studied the intra- and inter-observer reliability of glenoid parameters with the use of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) reconstructed computed tomography (CT) images. One(More)
The feasibility of using most comfortable loudness (MCL) as a real-world measure of speech attenuation introduced by hearing protection devices (HPDs) was studied. The authors compared three insert HPDs and an earmuff under three test conditions: (a) monaural earphone listening, (b) binaural earphone listening, and (c) sound field listening. The earmuff was(More)
Pain of the shoulder is becoming a serious clinical problem. A proper diagnosis, surgical, physiotherapycal, pharmacological and psychological treatment allow to achieve the best result. This shoulder's problem is very common in young, working people, who expect a quick and effective treatment. One of the procedures in the treatment of the painful shoulder(More)
The evaluation of glenohumeral joint volume in both unstable (with/without laxity) and stable shoulders (subacromial impingement) and volume reduction potential of arthroscopic techniques: (labral anchor repair vs. capsular shift). Material was based on 133 patients: anterior shoulder instability without laxity (group I, n = 49), with laxity (group II, n =(More)
PURPOSE Flexor injuries are most common in the hand and require special attention and experience from the surgeon. Both quality and technique affect the stability of the suture. The selection of the optimum method will influence the process of rehabilitation. The aim of this study was to compare three different suture techniques based on the strength,(More)
Background. The purpose of the paper is to present the treatment results of patients with injured rotator cuff, based on 6 months study, major limb dysfunction and severe pain. <br /> Material and methods. Study is based on 14 patients, who underwent arthroscopic and open surgery of the shoulder. After arthroscopic repair of coexisting injuries and curbed(More)
