The Clinical and Structural Long-Term Results of Open Repair of Massive Tears of the Rotator Cuff
- Open repair for massive rotator cuff tear with a modified transosseous-equivalent procedure: preliminary results at short-term follow-up. Yamaguchi, Hiroshi; Suenaga, Naoki; Oizumi, Naomi; Hosokawa, Yoshihiro; Kanaya, Fuminori // Journal of Orthopaedic Science;Jul2011, Vol. 16 Issue 4, p398
Background: Many surgical procedures have been reported for rotator cuff tears. We adopted the modified transosseous-equivalent procedure, also termed 'surface-holding repair with transosseous sutures,' and demonstrated that this procedure has a biomechanical advantage regarding the...
- Pit above the lesser tuberosity in axial view radiography. Cho, Jae-Ho; Han, Kyeong-Jin; Lee, Doo-Hyung; Chung, Nam-Su; Park, Do // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Feb2015, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p370
Purpose: This study examined the relationship between the presence of a pit above the lesser tuberosity on axial view radiographs and rotator cuff tears and compared the demographic data between groups according to the presence of a pit above the lesser tuberosity. The hypothesis of this study...
- The effect of tear size on the treatment outcome of operatively treated rotator cuff tears. Kukkonen, Juha; Kauko, Tommi; Virolainen, Petri; Äärimaa, Ville // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Feb2015, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p567
Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the tear size and the short-term clinical outcome of rotator cuff reconstruction. The hypothesis was that the size of the rotator cuff tear has a direct negative correlation with post-operative clinical outcome. Methods:...
- A cost analysis of single-row versus double-row and suture bridge rotator cuff repair methods. Bisson, Leslie; Zivaljevic, Nikola; Sanders, Samuel; Pula, David // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Feb2015, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p487
Purpose: To calculate the costs to the US healthcare system of transition from single-row (SR) to double-row (DR) rotator cuff repair (RCR) and to calculate the decrease in re-operations for re-tear that DR RCR would need to accomplish in order to render the transition cost-neutral. Methods:...
- Full-thickness rotator cuff tears in patients younger than 55 years: clinical outcome of arthroscopic repair in comparison with older patients. Dwyer, Tim; Razmjou, Helen; Holtby, Richard // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Feb2015, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p508
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine whether younger patients had a similar response to repair of a full-thickness rotator cuff tear (RCT) as older patients. Methods: A secondary analysis was conducted of prospectively collected data of patients with full-thickness RCTs. Patients...
