Many techniques, including non-operative and surgical option, have been described for(More)
Primary synovial chondromatosis is an uncommon condition, and involvement of the glenohumeral joint is rare. Currently, the recommended treatment is arthroscope-assisted synovectomy and removal of the loose bodies. We report a case with the clinical findings, radiographic features, arthroscopic technique for treatment of this disease and the main(More)
This study evaluated mid-term functional results of the Grammont inverted prosthesis for the treatment of shoulder osteoarthritis associated with massive cuff rupture. Twenty-eight patients with a minimum of 6 years of follow-up were evaluated. Clinical evaluation was performed on all patients preoperatively and at follow-up using the Constant score.(More)
Latissimus dorsi transfer is our preferred treatment for active disabled patients with a posterosuperior massive cuff tear. We present an arthroscopically assisted technique which avoids an incision through the deltoid obtaining a better and faster clinical outcome. The patient is placed in lateral decubitus. After the arthroscopic evaluation of the lesion(More)
