BACKGROUND Shoulder immobilization can induce adhesion of the joint, capsular contracture or lead to the condition of frozen shoulder. However, little is known about the histological effects of immobilization on the shoulder joint. This study aimed to explore the effect of immobility on the subscapular bursa (SSB) and the joint capsular content, including the distribution of types I and III collagen, within an immobilized rat shoulder. METHODS Forty-six Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly… Expand
Characterization of a frozen shoulder model using immobilization in rats
This study demonstrated that a rat frozen shoulder model using immobilization generates the pathophysiologic process of inflammation leading to fibrosis on the glenohumeral joint similar to that seen in patients with frozen shoulder. Expand

The results suggest that joint capsules fibrosis with overexpression of type I collagen occurs and progresses within 1 week after immobilization, and an increase in myofibroblasts is related to the mechanism of joint capsule fibrosis. Expand
Rat Model of Adhesive Capsulitis of the Shoulder.
A rat model of shoulder adhesive capsulitis with lasting reducedROM and increased stiffness is introduced, resulting in decreased rotational ROM and increased joint stiffness in rats. Expand
In vivo kinetic evaluation of an adhesive capsulitis model in rats.
This animal model of adhesive capsulitis rendered lasting effects on in vivo kinematics of the shoulder in rats, including a decrease in rotational range of motion and an increase in joint stiffness. Expand
Can Collagenase Be Used in the Treatment of Adhesive Capsulitis?
The results suggest that this treatment could be considered for use in patients with an intact rotator cuff, and observed that subacromial injections of collagenase Clostridium histolyticum effectively treated adhesive capsulitis. Expand
Platelet-rich plasma as a potential prophylactic measure against frozen shoulder in an in vivo shoulder contracture model
In this in vivo shoulder contracture model, PRP injections seem to reduce the histological severity grade of some parts of the secondary frozen shoulder without causing any side effects. Expand
Role of matrix metalloproteinases 2 and 9 in the development of frozen shoulder: human data and experimental analysis in a rat contracture model.
Animal study showed that the sequential expression of IL-6 and MMPs may be associated with fibrosis of the joint capsule, suggesting the involvement of MMP-2 and M MP-9 in the development of FS. Expand
Adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder: review of pathophysiology and current clinical treatments
The pathophysiology of adhesive capsulitis is reviewed, highlighting its clinical presentation, natural history, risk factors, pathoanatomy and pathogenesis, and how this new understanding can help facilitate development of novel pharmacological therapies. Expand
The Prognosis of Arthrofibroses: Prevalence, Clinical Shortcomings, and Future Prospects.
This review describes the clinical landscape of joint fibrosis, including the risk factors and causes, as well as current clinical treatments and their shortcomings, and discusses therapeutics for the prevention or treatment of arthrofibrosis that are in preclinical development and in ongoing clinical trials.

Comparison of outcomes between partially healed and acute metaphyseally malaligned distal radial fracture treated by palmar locking plate fixation.
Partially healed metaphyseally malaligned healed DRFs had inferior clinical outcomes to acute metaphySEally unstable DRFs in an early postoperative period, however, achieved similar clinical outcomes at 1 year postoperatively when treated using palmar locking plate fixation. Expand
