Stem-Based Repair of the Subscapularis in Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

Subscapularis integrity following total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is important to maintaining glenohumeral joint stability and functional outcome. In recent years increased emphasis has been placed on the management of the subscapularis during TSA. Options for management of the subscapularis during TSA include tenotomy, release of the tendon from the bone (peel technique), or a lesser […]

Severe, global loss of shoulder motion not linked with underlying full-thickness rotator cuff tears

Results of this imaging study on patients with stiff shoulders that demonstrated severe and global loss of passive range of motion shows no correlation between the condition and full-thickness rotator cuff tears. “[We] found that shoulder stiffness with severe and global loss of passive [range of motion] ROM is not associated with a full-thickness rotator […]

In-season anterior shoulder instability: What is the risk in returning to play?

Shoulder instability is a common injury in contact and collision athletes. While the acute management is relatively straight forward, the controversy arises when considering the risks associated with return to play in athletes. Shoulder instability encompasses a wide spectrum of injury from microinstability, through subluxations all the way to complete locked dislocations that require a […]

BLOG: Treatment and diagnosis of SLAP tears can sometimes prove difficult

Diagnosis and treatment of superior labral anterior to posterior tears can sometimes be controversial and pose a difficult decision-making process. The first line of treatment for most SLAP tears is usually rehabilitation. If that is not successful, the next step is often operative intervention. Operative treatment of type I (superior labral anterior to posterior) SLAP […]
