Objective 3-dimensional biomechanical changes of the shoulder at rest or during arm elevation were measured by means of a new specific method using an optoelectronic detection system that was developed for computer-aided surgery. Additionally, the shoulder syndrome following neck dissection was evaluated by the recognized orthopedic shoulder Constant score. The statistical evaluation encompassed 12 patients with unilateral radical neck dissection (RND), 12 patients with unilateral modified… CONTINUE READING
