This article presents a review of studies on elbow and shoulder surgery done between July 2006 and June 2007. One article presents information about the effect of nicotine on tendon-to-bone healing. The study indicates that nicotine is detrimental to such healing. The study also focuses on rotator cuff repair. Another study looked at differences in the outcome of arthroscopic acromioplasty and open acromioplasty. This study found no appreciable differences. A study investigated postoperative pain management after arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery and the effect of analgesics administered through subacrimonial infusion or intravenous injection.

    Background: The retear rate following rotator cuff repair is variable. Recent biomechanical studies have demonstrated that double-row tendon-to-bone fixation excels in initial fixation strength and footprint coverage compared with the single-row or transosseous fixation methods. This study was...
