Compaction Bone-Grafting in Prosthetic Shoulder Arthroplasty
- Locked posterior shoulder dislocation: treatment options and clinical outcomes. Schliemann, Benedikt; Muder, Daniel; Geßmann, Jan; Schildhauer, Thomas; Seybold, Dominik // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Aug2011, Vol. 131 Issue 8, p1127
Background: Posterior dislocation of the shoulder is a rare injury and often misdiagnosed during the initial presentation to a physician. Misdiagnosis is due to a lack of clear clinical signs compared to anterior dislocation and inappropriate radiographs. In contrast to anterior dislocations,...
- Reconstruction techniques in comparison for reverse shoulder trauma prosthesis in the elderly: a follow-up between 2 and 4 years. Russo, Raffaele; Cautiero, Fabio; Fontanarosa, Alberto; Rotonda, Giuseppe; Valerio, Giuliana // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Jul2015, Vol. 135 Issue 7, p905
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of a bone graft technique called bCAT (bone Collar And Tie), in which the fractured humeral head is modelled into a collar shape versus puzzle piece reconstruction (PPR) in elderly patients with complex proximal humeral...
- Immediate Postoperative Radiographs After Shoulder Arthroplasty Are Often Poor Quality and Do Not Alter Care. Namdari, Surena; Hsu, Jason; Barron, Matthew; Huffman, G.; Glaser, David // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Apr2013, Vol. 471 Issue 4, p1257
Background: It is technically difficult to obtain high-quality, postoperative shoulder radiographs immediately after surgery. Further, poor-quality radiographs may be unlikely to change clinical practice or improve patient outcomes. We therefore questioned the value of routine postoperative...
- Impingement linked with head size and edge-loading, but not cup position, in retrieved polyethylene liners. Buddle, Renee Blisard // Orthopedics Today;Dec2013, Vol. 33 Issue 12, p16
The article discusses a study on metal-on-polyethylene total hip arthroplasties retrieved at a mean of 10 years, which found that small head size and edge-loading is associated with impingement.
- Shoulder Arthroplasty for Fracture: Does a Fracture-specific Stem Make a Difference? Krishnan, Sumant; Reineck, John; Bennion, Philip; Feher, Leanne; Burkhead, Wayne // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Dec2011, Vol. 469 Issue 12, p3317
Background: Arthroplasty for shoulder fractures is a technically challenging and unpredictable procedure and its use is controversial. Questions/purposes: We therefore asked (1) to what degree function would be restored, (2) whether tuberosity healing would reliably occur, and (3) whether stem...
- Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty: A Review of Results According to Etiology. Wall, Bryan; Nové-Josserand, Laurent; O'Connor, Daniel P.; Edwards, T. Bradley; Walch, Gilles // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Jul2007, Vol. 89-A Issue 7, p1476
Background: Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty provides a surgical alternative to standard total shoulder arthroplasty for the treatment of selected complex shoulder problems. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effects of etiology on the results of reverse total shoulder...
- Bone graft incorporation after revision hip arthroplasty in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, seventy eight revisions using bone allografts with or without metal reinforcements. Kowalczewski, Jacek; Rutkowska-Sak, Lidia; Marczak, Dariusz; Słowińska, Iwona; Słowiński, Radosław; Sibiński, Marcin // International Orthopaedics;Apr2013, Vol. 37 Issue 4, p595
Purpose: The aim of the study was to assess bone graft incorporation after revision hip arthroplasty in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Methods: We report an acetabular reconstruction using impacted, morselized, frozen, radiation sterilized bone allografts in 71 patients suffering from...
- Study highlights instability, infection rates following reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Levine, William N.; Brockenbrough, Gina; Owens, Colleen // Orthopedics Today;Jan2011, Vol. 31 Issue 1, p24
The article focuses on a study by G. J. Trappey published in the November 23, 2010 issue of "Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research" which revealed a comparable instability rates for primary and revision reverse shoulder arthroplasty procedures, but higher infection rate for revision operations.
- Proper patient selection, surgical technique have proven essential for minimizing risks and ensuring quality outcomes. Blazek, Nicole // Orthopaedics Today Europe;Jul/Aug2011, Vol. 14 Issue 4, p6
The article focuses on the increasing popularity of reverse shoulder arthroplasty as an innovative shoulder procedure for restoring motion and relieving pain in patients with shoulder injuries.
