Suprascapular nerve and rotator cuff function are intimately connected. The incidence of suprascapular neuropathy has been increasing due to improved understanding of the disease entity and detection methods. The nerve dysfunction often results from a traction injury or compression, and a common cause is increased tension on the nerve from retracted rotator(More)
BACKGROUND This study examined outcomes and complications in young patients undergoing revision reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) for failed prior total shoulder arthroplasty or hemiarthroplasty and compared them with those of an age-matched cohort undergoing primary RTSA. METHODS RTSA as a revision for failed shoulder arthroplasty was performed(More)
BACKGROUND Complication rates remain high after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA). Salvage options after implant failure have not been well defined. This study examines the role of reimplantation and revision RTSA after failed RTSA, reporting outcomes and complications of this salvage technique. METHODS Sixteen patients underwent component(More)
Suprascapular neuropathy is generally considered to be a diagnosis of exclusion, although it has been described in association with several activities and conditions. To our knowledge, this is the first description of suprascapular neuropathy with complete neurogenic fatty replacement in patients with intact rotator cuff tendons in the absence of traction(More)
