Evaluation of functional outcome of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair using southern california orthopedic institute technique
Conclusion: We conclude that the SCOI single-row technique proves to be a good and effective modality of treatment in the arthroscopic management of small-to-medium-sized rotator cuff tears. In Indian population, considering cost-effectiveness, single-row repair of rotator cuff tears using SCOI technique can be an interesting option in its management.
AbstractIntroductionTo determine whether the placement of an interscalene brachial plexus block (IBPB) with general anaesthesia before shoulder arthroscopy would be effective in establishing a clear visual field and in shortening the surgical procedure.MethodThis prospective randomized control trial study included 152 patients who had undergone arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Group A received IBPB and group B did not receive IBPB. A visual clarity scale (VCS) was determined by arthroscopic visualization. The systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), heart rate (HR), duration of surgical procedure, VC...
ConclusionAn intact lacertus fibrosus contributes to elbow strength and should be preserved in distal biceps tendon repair.Level of evidenceIII.
Authors: West CR, Bedard NA, Duchman KR, Westermann RW, Callaghan JJ Abstract Background: Revision hip arthroscopy often serves as a measure for a failed primary hip arthroscopy procedure. The purpose of this study was to examine the rate, timing, and risk factors for revision hip arthroscopy using a large national database. Methods: The Humana administrative claims dataset was reviewed from 2007 through the second quarter of 2015 to identify patients undergoing hip arthroscopy using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and laterality modifiers. Patients with subsequent ipsilateral revision hip arthroscop...
Authors: Paschos NK, Bannister ER, Kelly Iv JD, Zgonis MH Abstract Multiple alternatives to reverse total shoulder arthroplasty exist for the management of massive rotator cuff tears. Surgeons should understand the current indications for and outcomes of alternatives to reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for the management of massive rotator cuff tears. Successful rotator cuff repair involves two major challenges: the creation of forceful mechanical integrity of the repair and the creation of a biologic environment that enhances tissue healing. Given the latest advancements in grafts and biologic enhancement, arth...
ConclusionReported cases of PTRCT and its surgical repair have both increased substantially over time. Approximately 11.70% of patients with PTRCT undergo either open or arthroscopic procedure as a means of surgical repair. With the growing popularity of arthroscopic procedures for rotator cuff repair, further investigation should be performed to analyze trends and risk factors for PTRCT, a seemingly underrepresented orthopedic condition.

ConclusionsSuture tape augmentation of the MPFL resulted in similar primary contact pressures and joint kinematics in comparison with MPFL reconstruction using a tendon graft. A pretension of 2 N was found to restore the knee joint closest to normal patellofemoral kinematics.
ConclusionsSPBT using all-suture type anchor was a favorable treatment option for lesions of the LHBT with rotator cuff tear. The clinical relevance of this study is the finding that double on-lay fixation with all-suture type anchor would result less cosmetic deformity than the single on-lay fixation for those who need subpectoral biceps tenodesis.Level of evidenceIII
Recent studies of patients with rotator cuff tears have demonstrated improved efficiency with Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) when compared with traditional patient-reported outcome measures (PROM). However, these studies have been cross-sectional in nature and the responsiveness of PROMIS computer adaptive test (CAT) forms has not been evaluated. The purpose of this study was to determine the responsiveness of PROMIS CAT assessments in patients undergoing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.
