Sternoclavicular Joint Reconstruction Fracture Risk Is Reduced With Straight Drill Tunnels and Optimized With Tendon Graft Suture Augmentation.

BACKGROUND: Despite the rare entity of sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) instability, a variety of different reconstruction techniques for SCJ dislocations have been described. A technique with oblique drilling has been proposed to reduce intraoperative risks. [...]

Quantitative Assessment of the Coracoacromial and the Coracoclavicular Ligaments With 3-Dimensional Mapping of the Coracoid Process Anatomy: A Cadaveric Study of Surgically Relevant Structures

The coracoid process serves as the attachment site for many structures, including the conjoint tendon of the coracobrachialis and the short bead of the biceps, the pectoralis minor muscle, the coracoacromial ligament (CAL), the [...]

Arthroscopic Superior Capsule Reconstruction for Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears

Massive irreparable rotator cuff tears involving the posterosuperior rotator cuff are challenging to treat. Many treatment options exist, including debridement, partial rotator cuff repair, patch- augmented rotator cuff repair, bridging rotator cuff reconstruction with a [...]

The ability of massive osteochondral allografts from the medial tibial plateau to reproduce normal joint contact pressures after glenoid resurfacing: the effect of computed tomography matching

Treatment of shoulder arthritis in patients younger than 50 years remains controversial. Total shoulder arthroplasty has limitations in this age group and is frequently avoided because of concerns of premature glenoid component failure. Therefore, a [...]

Glenoid resurfacing: What are the limits to asymmetric reaming for posterior erosion?

In individuals with glenohumeral osteoarthritis, the pattern of eccentric posterior glenoid erosion and anterior soft tissue contracture is not uncommon. Surgical technique generally includes correction of glenoid orientation to neutral and anterior soft tissue releases. [...]

Glenoid Erosion Leading to Contact with Retained Metallic Suture Anchors: Bilateral Metallosis After Bilateral Shoulder Hemiarthroplasty

Metallosis occurs following the accumulation of metallic debris within the joint space and soft tissues surrounding a prosthesis. This deposition of foreign material results in a macrophagic cellular reaction, leading to the formation of giant [...]

Survivorship and Patient-Reported Outcomes After Comprehensive Arthroscopic Management of Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis

Glenohumeral osteoarthritis (GHOA) is a common cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction. The initial treatment typically consists of nonoperative measures including physical therapy, pharmacotherapy, injections, and activity modifications. When nonoperative treatment fails, surgical options [...]
