OBJECTIVE To determine: 1) whether the patients had been oriented to use immobilization for at least four weeks and which type of immobilization was prescribed, 2) how many dislocations occurred until the patient received information about the need of surgery, 3) How long it takes for patients to have an appointment with a shoulder surgeon, 4) How many(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical and functional outcomes from arthroscopic repairs on small and medium-sized tears of the supraspinatus muscle tendon. METHODS 129 cases of isolated small and medium tears of the supraspinatus muscle tendon were evaluated retrospectively. The average duration of pain was 29 months. The average joint range of motion(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze whether the Bernageau radiographic view is adequate for studying the anterior glenoid rim and to determine the distance between the posterior and anterior glenoid rims. METHODS Fifty patients (31 males) with a mean age of 34 years were evaluated by positioning their arm at 160° forward flexion and body at 70° to the x-ray chassis,(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to establish values and parameters using multislice reconstruction in axial computerized tomography (CT) in order to quantify the erosion of the glenoid cavity in cases of shoulder instability. METHODS We studied two groups using CT. Group I had normal subjects and Group II had patients with shoulder instability. We measured values of(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the functional results among patients undergoing tenotomy with or without tenodesis of the long head of the biceps associated with arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff injuries, with a minimum two-year follow-up. METHOD This was a retrospective non-randomized trial with evidence level III, in which the medical files of 77 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluate the results from the Latarjet procedure in patients with anterior recurrent dislocation of the shoulder who present bone loss of the glenoid cavity greater than 25%. METHODS Twenty six male patients underwent the Latarjet procedure, The bone loss was evaluated by means of radiography using the Bernageau view and by means of CAT scan.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate bone healing and the patient's outcome after open reduction and internal fixation, when using the technique described by Walch et al, in 1996, which uses conventional intramedullary corticocancellous bone graft and internal fixation with plate and screws added by a tricortical intramedullary bone graft, also autologous. METHODS From(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the distance between the axillary nerve and the antero-lateral (AL) edge of the acromion, its anatomical variability and relationship to humeral length and body height. METHODS Twenty-two shoulders were dissected. The anterosuperior (AS) approach was used; the deltoid was detached from the acromion and the distance between the AL(More)
