BACKGROUND Overhead athletes report an inconsistent return to their previous level of sport and satisfaction after arthroscopic SLAP lesion repair. HYPOTHESIS Arthroscopic biceps tenodesis offers a viable alternative to the repair of an isolated type II SLAP lesion. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS Twenty-five consecutive(More)
HYPOTHESIS The etiology of shoulder pain in the overhead athlete is often difficult to determine. This study hypothesized that (1) instability can present in a purely painful form, without any apparent history of instability, but with anatomic lesions indicative of instability, termed unstable painful shoulder (UPS), and that (2) arthroscopic shoulder(More)
Although a reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) can restore active elevation in the cuff deficient shoulder, it cannot restore active external rotation when both the infraspinatus and teres minor muscles are absent or atrophied. We hypothesized that a latissimus dorsi and teres major (LD/TM) transfer with a concomitant RSA would restore shoulder function and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose is to report the results of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) after previous failed rotator cuff surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective multicenter study of 42 RSA in 40 patients (mean age, 71 years) with a mean follow-up of 50 months. Thirty shoulders presented with a pseudoparalytic shoulder and 12 with a painful(More)
PURPOSE We report the results of a new technique consisting of a combined arthroscopic Bankart repair associated with a transfer of the coraco-biceps tendon to reinforce the deficient anterior capsule by lowering the subscapularis. METHODS The procedure combines 2 parts: an arthroscopic Bankart repair, which recreates the glenoid concavity and retensions(More)
Although much attention has been directed to the development of the humeral components used in shoulder arthroplasty, the major unsolved challenge lies on the glenoid side of the articulation. This challenge arises from difficulties resisting eccentric loading and providing adequate implant-bone fixation. Current glenoid component designs use polyethylene(More)
A reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is a prosthesis that should be used in patients who have specific contraindications to the more conventional total shoulder prosthetic replacements. The patient and surgeon should understand that this reconstruction is technically more difficult and is associated with more complications than conventional shoulder(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of revision arthroscopic stabilization after failed open anterior shoulder stabilization. METHODS We studied a retrospective series of 22 consecutive patients with recurrent anterior shoulder instability after open surgical stabilization (12 Latarjet procedures, 4 Eden-Hybinette procedures, 3(More)
External fixation is commonly used in the treatment of distal radius fractures. In this in vitro study, we investigated changes in fracture stability when using supplemental radial styloid pinning in combination with external fixation. Eight previously frozen cadaveric upper extremities were mounted in a computer-controlled wrist-loading apparatus. This(More)
BACKGROUND Neer modified the Bankart procedure by combining a superoinferior capsular shift with the labral reattachment. The theoretical advantages of the modification were that such a procedure would restore the patient's anatomy and also treat the repeated capsular stretching encountered in anteroinferior instability without limiting external rotation(More)
