Do Less Medialized Reverse Shoulder Prostheses Increase Motion and Reduce Notching?
TLDR
Less medialization of reverse shoulder arthroplasty improves external and medial rotation, thus facilitating the activities of daily living of older patients, and reflects longer prosthesis survival, but longer followup is necessary to confirm these preliminary observations. Expand
Mid-term outcome of reverse shoulder prostheses in complex proximal humeral fractures.
TLDR
Reverse shoulder prosthesis may be a good alternative for displaced three- and four-part proximal humeral fractures in selected patients and the functional results are more predictable than with hemiarthroplasty in elderly patients. Expand
Surgical Technique: The Anterosuperior Approach for Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty
TLDR
The anterosuperior approach can be used in primary and revision reverse shoulder arthroplasty, as well as in acute humeral head fracture, and due to subscapularis tendon preservation, a low risk of postoperative instability. Expand
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty combined with a latissimus dorsi and teres major transfer for a deficit of both active elevation and external rotation. Results of 15 cases with a minimum of 2-year
TLDR
The combined procedure helped restoration of active elevation and external rotation in cases of massive cuff tear including the teres minor tendon. Expand
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
Results of latissimus dorsi tendon transfer in primary or salvage reconstruction of irreparable rotator cuff tears.
TLDR
In patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears, clinical results of latissimus dorsi tendon transfer showed significant pain level reduction, and gains in active range of motion both in forward elevation and external rotation. Expand
Arthroscopic repair of the rotator cuff: prospective study of tendon healing after 70 years of age in 145 patients.
TLDR
Arthroscopic repair significantly improves the clinical results, even in patients older than 70 years, and healing proves to be correlated with the quality of the clinical result and patient age. Expand
Arthroscopic-assisted latissimus dorsi tendon transfer for irreparable posterosuperior cuff tears.
TLDR
Arthroscopic-assisted LD tendon transfer improves shoulder pain and function in patients with irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears, with similar clinical and radiologic results compared with results of published series using open techniques. Expand
CT scan evaluation of glenoid component fixation: a prospective study of 27 minimally cemented shoulder arthroplasties
TLDR
Long-term result of arthroplasty is correlated with glenoids durable fixation to underlying bone: this study shows higher fixation of glenoid component with bone integration of central peg. Expand
The Reverse Shoulder Prosthesis-Surgical Technique
TLDR
The surgical technique of the reverse shoulder prosthesis is described in detail and indications for the procedure, difficulties encountered during surgery, and potential postoperative complications and their solutions are discussed. Expand
