Eight-year follow-up after scapulectomy in a neonate with congenital Ewing sarcoma of the scapula
With an incidence of 2 per 100,0000, Ewing sarcoma represents the second most common primary bone neoplasia after the osteosarcoma.4 Only 2.6% of cases occur by the age of 3.9 The classic peak lies between ages 15 and 30 years. Only 2 publications have reported the existence of congenital skeletal Ewing sarcomas.5,6 To date, a treatment protocol with a curative course has not been described in the literature. Although histopathology seems to be inconsistent, genetic examination usually reveals a typical chromosomal translocation. (Source: Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery)

Analysis of technical feasibility and neurovascular safety of endoscopic distal biceps repair: a cadaveric study
This cadaveric study was designed to analyze the safety of endoscopic repair of distal biceps tendon (DBT) tears using 2 reattachment techniques. We evaluated the proximity of neurovascular structures to endoscopy portals; iatrogenic injury to neurovascular, musculotendinous, and osseous structures; and changes in compartment pressures. We hypothesized that an all-endoscopic repair of the ruptured DBT would be technically safe and the risk of iatrogenic injury would be low. (Source: Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery)

Does arthroscopic rotator cuff repair improve patients' activity levels?
Rotator cuff repair decreases pain, improves range of motion, and increases strength. Whether these improvements translate to an improvement in a patient's activity level postoperatively remains unknown.

Currently, there are no studies that examine the effect of rotator cuff repair on shoulder activity level. (Source: Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery)

Intraobserver and interobserver reliability of recategorized Neer classification in differentiating 2-part surgical neck fractures from multi-fragmented proximal humeral fractures in 116 patients
Optimal fracture classification should be simple and reproducible and should guide treatment. For proximal humeral fractures, the Neer classification is commonly used. However, intraobserver and interobserver reliability of the Neer classification has been shown to be poor. In clinical practice, it is essential to differentiate 2-part surgical neck fractures from multi-fragmented fractures. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate whether surgeons can differentiate 2-part surgical neck fractures from multi-fragmented fractures using plain radiographs and/or computed tomography (CT).

Immediate physical therapy without postoperative restrictions following open subpectoral biceps tenodesis: low failure rates and improved outcomes at a minimum 2-year follow-up
We aimed to determine patient-reported outcomes in patients undergoing open subpectoral biceps tenodesis with a dual-fixation construct who had no postoperative range-of-motion or weight-bearing restrictions. Our hypothesis was that patients without postoperative restrictions would have low failure rates with improved patient-reported outcomes.

Comparative analysis of 2 glenoid version measurement methods in variable axial slices on 3-dimensionally reconstructed computed tomography scans
Most glenoid version measurement methods have been validated on 3-dimensionally corrected axial computed tomography (CT) slices at the mid glenoid. Variability of the vault according to slice height and angulation has not yet been studied and is crucial for proper surgical implant positioning. The aim of this study was to analyze the variation of the glenoid vault compared with the Friedman angle according to different CT slice heights and angulations. The hypothesis was that the Friedman angle would show less variability. (Source: Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery)
