Outcomes of conservative treatment of acromial and scapular spine stress fracture post reverse shoulder arthroplasty – a systematic review with meta-analysis
Acromial and scapular spine stress fractures are common complications post reverse shoulder arthroplasty. A systematic review with meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the clinical outcomes of conservatively treated acromial and scapular spine stress fractures post reverse shoulder arthroplasty in comparison to non-fracture control.
Surgical Intervention Following a First Traumatic Anterior Shoulder Dislocation is Worthy of Consideration
Up to 60% of patients experience recurrence after a first traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation (FTASD), which is often defined as having experienced either dislocation or subluxation
Results presented here showed that an inferior sagittal position of a Hill-Sachs lesion may be associated with increased failure risk of primary arthroscopic Bankart repair.
Results published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found patients who underwent anatomic total or reverse shoulder arthroplasty had “significant and rapid” improvements in sleep disturbance after surgery.
Patients with shoulder instability who failed primary posterior labral repair had lower acromial tilt and higher posterior acromial height than patients with successful primary repair, according to results presented here.
