  Three-dimensional shoulder motion after teres major or latissimus dorsi tendon transfer for posterosuperior rotator cuff tears


Background

Teres major (TM) transfer and latissimus dorsi (LD) transfer are essential treatment options in patients with posterosuperior rotator cuff (RC) tears. The purpose of this study was to quantify shoulder kinematics before and after TM transfer and LD transfer in posterosuperior RC tear patients.

  Fatty infiltration of stage 1 or higher significantly compromises long-term healing of supraspinatus repairs


Arnaud Godenèch et al | JSES juni 2017

Background

Fatty infiltration (FI) compromises outcomes of rotator cuff repairs. Most clinicians consider FI of the infraspinatus, whether it is torn or intact, because it is most rapidly affected. The purpose of this study was to report long-term outcomes of isolated supraspinatus repairs and to determine their associations with FI of the infraspinatus and supraspinatus.

  Isolated serratus palsy etiology influences its long-term outcome


Hypothesis and Background

The cause of isolated serratus palsy is multifactorial, but evaluation of the mechanism of the injury indicates that the lesion to the long thoracic nerve is mechanical in origin in most cases. What is unknown, however, is how etiology influences its long-term outcome. We believed that overuse injuries may recover sooner and better than acute traumatic, infectious, or inflammatory injuries.

  Does early motion lead to a higher failure rate or better outcomes after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair? A systematic review of overlapping meta-analyses


Background

The aims of the study were as follows: to perform a systematic review of meta-analyses comparing “early motion” and “delayed motion” after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair; to provide a framework to analyze the best available evidence to develop recommendations; and to identify gaps where suggestions could be made for future investigations.
