Conservative therapy has been recommended for the treatment of a chronic cuff lesion with relatively good results. However, recent reports about operative treatment of cuff lesions have yielded more favorable results. Although the current literature seems to favor early treatment, there is an ongoing debate about the timing of the ...

The risk of glenoid component failure has led us to explore nonprosthetic glenoid arthroplasty coupled with humeral hemiarthroplasty, the "ream and run" (R&R) procedure, for the management of glenohumeral arthritis in active patients. We hypothesized that patients having a R&R procedure would have outcomes comparable with those of similar patients ...

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 designed to report the repair integrity and clinical outcome following arthroscopic double-row ...
