BACKGROUND Studies evaluating the return to sports and work after shoulder arthroplasty are rare, and there are no studies evaluating return to work after total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). HYPOTHESIS Patients undergoing TSA will be able to return to their preoperative sports levels and occupations. STUDY DESIGN Case series; Level of evidence, 4. (More)
BACKGROUND There is little information about the long-term longitudinal outcomes of total shoulder arthroplasty. Moreover, long-term data on a single shoulder replacement system are lacking. The aim of this study was to analyze, at different time points during a follow-up period of fifteen to twenty years, the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients(More)
Our aim in this prospective study was to evaluate the outcome of total shoulder replacement in the treatment of young and middle-aged active patients with primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis. We reviewed 21 patients (21 shoulders) with a mean age of 55 years (37 to 60). The mean follow-up was seven years (5 to 9). The same anatomical, third-generation,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to evaluate whether arthroscopic (ASC) repair of rotator cuff ruptures causes less postoperative pain and better range of motion (ROM) in the early postoperative period than a mini-open (MO) technique. METHODS Inclusion criteria were a rupture of the supraspinatus tendon with retraction with a maximum to the apex of the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to analyze our results using a modular endoprosthetic replacement system (MUTARS) for bone tumors of the proximal humerus. METHODS Thirty-nine patients were treated with a MUTARS endoprosthesis of the proximal humerus. Mean follow-up duration was 38 months (3-138 months). Most operations were(More)
BACKGROUND Osteonecrosis of the humeral head is a disabling condition that can lead to joint destruction with persistent pain and dysfunction. The aim of the present study was to examine cementless humeral surface replacement arthroplasty as a treatment option for posttraumatic and nontraumatic osteonecrosis. METHODS Between 2002 and 2005, seventeen(More)
BACKGROUND The Latarjet procedure is effective in managing anterior glenohumeral instability in the short term, but there is concern for postoperative arthritis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term functional outcome after the Latarjet procedure and to assess the prevalence of and risk factors for glenohumeral arthritis after this(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to quantify the compensatory movements of the shoulder and elbow in patients with congenital radioulnar synostosis during 10 activities of daily living (ADL). METHODS Maximum and minimum joint angles and range of motion were measured by use of a motion capture system in seven patients and seven matched controls. The(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to analyse the clinical, functional and radiographic outcomes of patients sustaining traumatic anterior dislocations of the shoulder in combination with large anterior glenoid rim fractures, treated by open reduction and internal screw fixation (ORIF). Twenty-nine patients with a mean follow-up of 6.5 years (2.5-12(More)
BACKGROUND The biconcave glenoid in patients with primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis represents a surgical challenge because of the associated static posterior instability of the humeral head and secondary posterior glenoid erosion. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty(More)
