Anterior rotator cable disruption does not affect outcomes in rotator cuff tear with subscapularis involvement

This study included 226 patients who underwent arthroscopic repair of anterosuperior rotator cuff tears (n = 107, group A) and rotator cuff tears with subscapularis involvement (n = 119, group B). The visual analog scale (VAS) pain score, subjective shoulder value (SSV), American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) score, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) shoulder score, and active range of motion (ROM) were assessed. Modified belly press test was performed t o assess the strength of the subscapularis muscle. Cuff integrity was evaluated using magnetic resonance arthrography or computed tomographic arthrography at 6 months after operation.ResultsAt 3-year follow-up, the VAS score, SSVs, ASES scores, UCLA shoulder scores, active ROM, and modified belly press test showed significant improvement in both groups (p

Conclusions We present a simple arthroscopic technique using a single suture anchor placed in the ulnar fovea. Repairs performed with this technique are simple and the results achieved seem to be similar to those obtained with conventional open or arthroscopic techniques, although further investigation with an increased number of patients and follow-up are required. It however became our first choice of treatment in European Wrist Arthroscopy Society (EWAS) 2 lesions of the TFCC.

Abstract BACKGROUND: The application of telehealth for surgical follow-up has gained recent exposure in orthopedic care. Although the results following joint arthroplasty are encouraging, the role of telemedicine for postoperative care following arthroscopic rotator cuff repair still needs to be defined. The goal of this study was to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and socioeconomic benefits of telehealth as a platform for postoperative follow-up. METHODS: This was a prospective, randomized controlled trial that enrolled 66 patients who underwent follow-up in the office vs. via telemedicine for postoperative v...

CONCLUSIONS: This study described that the direct continuous infusion of anesthetic under subacromial analgesic pump showed a greater pain relief with less side effects compared with intravenous infusion for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. PMID: 32147277 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is often associated with severe postoperative pain. Various agents, routes, and modes are used for the treatment of postoperative pain with a minimum of side effects. This systematic work was conducted to compare the postoperative effect of subacromial patient-controlled analgesia with intravenous patient-controlled analgesia after an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair surgery.

ConclusionArthroscopic partial repair, either with or without ISB implantation, resulted in significantly improved clinical and functional short-term outcomes for the treatment of MRCT. Patients who were treated with combined partial repair and ISB implantation had a potential propensity toward better functional outcomes and higher patient satisfaction compared to the single-partial-repair-treated group. However, given that these differences were not significant, we feel that further studies are required to clarify the potential therapeutic value of ISB implantation in the treatment of irreparable MRCT.Level of EvidenceLev...

Outcomes of arthroscopic instability repairs vary depending on repair techniques and anchor materials. The purpose of this study is to determine the short to mid-term redislocation, resubluxation rate and clinical outcomes following arthroscopic stabilization of nonabsorbable, biologically inert polymer polyether ether ketone (PEEK) suture anchors. This is a retrospective study with 140 patients who underwent arthroscopic anterior stabilization surgery using PEEK (Pushlock) anchors with a mean follow-up of 40 months. Patient ranked pain scores, clinically assessed range of motion and strength testing were collected preoper...
