PURPOSE To determine and propose a systematic approach to evaluating magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans for subscapularis tears and compares preoperative MRI interpretations with findings of the same shoulders at arthroscopy. METHODS The study was composed of 202 patients who underwent shoulder arthroscopy by 1 of 5 orthopaedic surgeons during a(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of clinically significant postoperative stiffness following arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. This study also sought to determine the clinical and surgical factors that were associated with higher rates of postoperative stiffness. Finally, we analyzed the result of arthroscopic lysis of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence of associated pathologic shoulder lesions that were addressed surgically in grade 3 acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) dislocations, as well as to compare this incidence between younger and older patients and between acute and chronic cases. METHODS In this multicenter nonrandomized retrospective study, 98 patients operated on(More)
HYPOTHESIS Local application of autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) improves tendon healing in patients undergoing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled, double blind study; considering an alpha level of 5%, a power of 80%, 22 patients for group are needed. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-three patients who(More)
HYPOTHESIS This study investigates the rate of infectious and thromboembolic complications in shoulder arthroscopy and their association with pharmacologic prophylaxis. MATERIALS AND METHODS On behalf of the Italian Society for Knee Surgery, Arthroscopy, Sport Traumatology, Cartilage and Orthopaedic Technologies (SIGASCOT), we asked the members to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff tears can produce excellent results. The application of platelet rich plasma during arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is safe, and produces results which do not deteriorate over time. METHODS A total of 14 patients undergoing arthroscopic repair of a rotator cuff tear received an intra-operative(More)
We evaluated the incidence of FLT3/internal tandem duplication (ITD) mutation in childhood acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) diagnosed over 15 years. FLT3/ITD was found in 10 of 45 (22.2%) non-acute promyelocytic leukaemia (non-APL) patients. The 5-year event-free survival of non-APL patients was higher in FLT3/ITD-negative versus -positive patients (48.9%, SE(More)
PURPOSE As arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery has advanced, new techniques have emerged to maximize the biomechanical strength of the repair construct. The double-row repair has been recommended as a means of increasing the contact area of the repaired rotator cuff to the native bone bed. This study attempts to sequentially examine and measure the rotator(More)
Arthroscopic remplissage of a Hill–Sachs lesion is classically described as a capsulotenodesis of the infraspinatus within the posterolateral humeral head. The aim of this cadaveric study was to evaluate the anatomic relationship between the position of anchors and sutures placed for remplissage and the infraspinatus and teres minor. The hypothesis was that(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to report orthopedic surgeons' management of choice for difficult clinical scenarios of shoulder pathologies. METHODS A web questionnaire was developed including four clinical scenarios of shoulder pathologies. Subsequently, opinions were solicited from more than 1,000 members of an international association of surgeons(More)
