BACKGROUND: The advantages of performing either a single- or 2-staged joint replacement has been reviewed extensively in the hip and knee arthroplasty literature, but far less data exist regarding total shoulder replacements. In the appropriate clinical setting, bilateral total shoulder arthroplasty yields excellent functional results with a low complication profile. ...

BACKGROUND: In massive rotator cuff tears a teres major (TMj) tendon transfer to the insertion of the supraspinatus (SSp) reverses its adduction moment arm into abduction which is supposed to be an adequate salvage procedure. Analysis of muscle function to find biomechanical ground of such success is scarce. METHODS: We ...

HYPOTHESIS: Needle lavage is frequently performed before consideration of surgical removal in shoulders with calcific tendinitis because this may avoid surgery. However, its role in nonoperative treatment has not been fully investigated in terms of clinical and radiographic response. We hypothesized that needle decompression and subacromial steroid injection would show ...
