If you have a pinching and sharp pain in your shoulder or shoulders while swimming, you may be suffering from swimmer's shoulder. This condition may limit your ability to swim and use your arm normally for functional tasks.
Primary Bankart Repair Versus Arthroscopic Anatomic Glenoid Reconstruction in Patients with Subcritical Bone Loss
Anterior shoulder instability and its treatment is a quickly evolving field of interest in orthopaedics, both for patients and for health-care systems. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of arthroscopic anatomic glenoid reconstruction (AAGR) compared with Bankart repair in the treatment of anterior shoulder instability in patients with subcritical glenoid bone loss.
In this article, we describe the unique presentation of an 83-year-old, right-hand dominant male with severe right arm dysfunction secondary to a humeral shaft non-union in the setting of ipsilateral CTA. The case highlights the options for, and difficulty in, managing these concomitant pathologies in a medically frail individual who has lost meaningful upper extremity function and independence because of this injury.
In active-duty military patients younger than 35 years with type II superior labral anterior-posterior tears, biceps tenodesis is more effective in improving pain and function than superior labral anterior-posterior repair, according to new study data.
When a patient initially presents with multiple shoulder instability events, nonoperative treatment will most likely not be successful in treating their traumatic anterior shoulder instability, a new study finds.
