Posterior shoulder instability has been difficult to diagnose and even more challenging to manage. However, it is being diagnosed and treated more frequently, particularly after sports injuries. The purpose of this article is to review literature concerning the management of these pathologies. A literature review was carried out in the main medical(More)
The morphology of the glenoid cavity is highly variable, and no consensus exists regarding how to classify the different forms. We examined 98 dry scapulae to identify a common morphological entity and to define reproducible bony references of the glenoid cavity. The glenoid cavities were photographed perpendicularly in a standardized fashion. The bony(More)
To investigate superior value of adding heavy load eccentric training to conservative treatment in patients with subacromial impingement. Sixty-one patients with subacromial impingement were included and randomly allocated to the traditional rotator cuff training (TT) group (n = 30, mean age = 39.4 ± 13.1 years) or traditional rotator training combined with(More)
The purpose of the study was to determine the normal three-dimensional relationship between the humeral and the glenoid plane of the individual patient. We measured the three-dimensional angle between the glenoid plane and the humeral plane (glenohumeral angle, °GH) and the angle between the plane of the scapula and the plane of the glenoid (glenoscapular(More)
Knowledge of the normal and pathological three-dimensional glenohumeral relationship is imperative when planning and performing a total shoulder arthroplasty. There is, however, no consensus on which references should be used when studying this relationship. The purpose of the present study was to define the most suitable glenoid plane with normally(More)
Recently, arthroscopy of the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) has been described in clinical setting. The aim of this study is to examine the accessibility and safety of the SCJ by arthroscopy in a cadaveric model. An inferolateral and superomedial portal to the SCJ was created in 20 cadaveric specimens. After debridement, the specimens were dissected with a(More)
The knowledge of shoulder pathology has improved tremendously in the last decades, and shoulder surgery is increasingly performed because of new treatment options and better operative results. Nowadays most surgical shoulder procedures are performed in the sitting or semi-sitting (beach chair) position. Stability of the patient and the ability to flex,(More)
