Glenohumeral instability: Validity of low-field MRI for diagnosis of labral tears

Conclusion Low-field MRI is an appropriate method to diagnose labral tears, with sensitivity levels of 83.3%. Nevertheless, in order to correctly determine the type of lesion present it is advisable, though not indispensable, to carry out a direct MR arthrogram, except in the case of SLAP lesions, where diagnosis is virtually impossible without the addition of intra-articular contrast (unless patients with glenohumeral effusion).

Abstract Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears are recognized as a cause of ulnar-sided wrist pain. Nowadays, arthroscopy plays an important role in providing treatment as well as in establishing the diagnosis. Arthroscopic repair of a TFCC tear is indicated after the failure of non-surgical treatments such as cast immobilization, splinting, and administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for more than 3 months. Several arthroscopic therapeutic methods have been described, including the inside-out, outside-in, and all-arthroscopic techniques. However, these arthroscopic procedures are time-co...

Full-thickness rotator cuff tears remain a significant cause of pain and dysfunction in the elderly. Substantial improvement in pain and functional outcomes with arthroscopic cuff repair is possible. Recent data has shown that patients older than 70-75 years still have clinical improvement with operative rotator cuff repair.

DiFeliceAbstractRecently, there has been a resurgence of interest in ligament preservation of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) that has the advantage of preserving the native tissue and maintaining proprioceptive function. Studies reporting outcomes of remnant-preserving ACL surgery have shown encouraging results with a higher potential for early healing and better functional outcomes compared with remnant-resecting surgery. Over the past decade, several surgical techniques...

The surgical management of recurrent anterior shoulder instability with severe glenoid bone loss has been challenging until now. Therefore the Latarjet procedure was introduced as an alternative that provided good results in cases of full instability with a bone defect. In cases of recurrent anterior shou...

Minimal clinically important differences (MCIDs) for different patient outcome scores have been reported for various shoulder diseases, including shoulder arthroplasty and the nonoperative treatment of rotator cuff disease. The purpose of this study was to assess the MCID for the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Standardized Shoulder Assessment Form (ASES) score, the Simple Shoulder Test (SST), and a visual analog scale (VAS) measuring pain, after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.
