The article offers updates related to several studies on shoulder and elbow surgery. It cites the study by Y. S. Kim and colleagues on the impact of room-temperature or warmed irrigation fluid on body temperature and other variables of 50 patients undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery. It mentions the clinical and radiographic evaluation conducted by S. Moosmayer and colleagues on 420 asymptomatic shoulders in 50- to 79-year-old patients.
