The gliding joint formed by the outer extremity of the CLAVICLE and the inner margin of the acromion process of the SCAPULA.
A bone on the ventral side of the shoulder girdle, which in humans is commonly called the collar bone.
Displacement of the HUMERUS from the SCAPULA.
The lateral extension of the spine of the SCAPULA and the highest point of the SHOULDER.
A subjective psychometric response scale used to measure distinct behavioral or physiological phenomena based on linear numerical gradient or yes/no alternatives.
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)
The articulation between the head of the HUMERUS and the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA.
Unilateral or bilateral pain of the shoulder. It is often caused by physical activities such as work or sports participation, but may also be pathologic in origin.
The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.
Also called the shoulder blade, it is a flat triangular bone, a pair of which form the back part of the shoulder girdle.
Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.
Procedures used to reconstruct, restore, or improve defective, damaged, or missing structures.
Procedures used to treat and correct deformities, diseases, and injuries to the MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM, its articulations, and associated structures.
Fibrous cords of CONNECTIVE TISSUE that attach bones to each other and hold together the many types of joints in the body. Articular ligaments are strong, elastic, and allow movement in only specific directions, depending on the individual joint.
The distance and direction to which a bone joint can be extended. Range of motion is a function of the condition of the joints, muscles, and connective tissues involved. Joint flexibility can be improved through appropriate MUSCLE STRETCHING EXERCISES.
Also known as articulations, these are points of connection between the ends of certain separate bones, or where the borders of other bones are juxtaposed.
The upper or most anterior segment of the STERNUM which articulates with the CLAVICLE and first two pairs of RIBS.
A double gliding joint formed by the CLAVICLE, superior and lateral parts of the manubrium sterni at the clavicular notch, and the cartilage of the first rib.

Diagnostic classification of shoulder disorders: interobserver agreement and determinants of disagreement. (1/85)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the interobserver agreement on the diagnostic classification of shoulder disorders, based on history taking and physical examination, and to identify the determinants of diagnostic disagreement. METHODS: Consecutive eligible patients with shoulder pain were recruited in various health care settings in the Netherlands. After history taking, two physiotherapists independently performed a physical examination and subsequently the shoulder complaints were classified into one of six diagnostic categories: capsular syndrome (for example, capsulitis, arthritis), acute bursitis, acromioclavicular syndrome, subacromial syndrome (for example, tendinitis, chronic bursitis), rest group (for example, unclear clinical picture, extrinsic causes) and mixed clinical picture. To quantify the interobserver agreement Cohen's kappa was calculated. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was applied to determine which clinical characteristics were determinants of diagnostic disagreement. RESULTS: The study population consisted of 201 patients with varying severity and duration of complaints. The kappa for the classification of shoulder disorders was 0.45 (95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.37, 0.54). Diagnostic disagreement was associated with bilateral involvement (odds ratio (OR) 1.9; 95% CI 1.0, 3.7), chronic complaints (OR 2.0; 95% CI 1.1, 3.7), and severe pain (OR 2.7; 95% CI 1.3, 5.3). CONCLUSIONS: Only moderate agreement was found on the classification of shoulder disorders, which implies that differentiation between the various categories of shoulder disorders is complicated. Especially patients with high pain severity, chronic complaints and bilateral involvement represent a diagnostic challenge for clinicians. As diagnostic classification is a guide for treatment decisions, unsatisfactory reproducibility might affect treatment outcome. To improve the reproducibility, more insight into the reproducibility of clinical findings and the value of additional diagnostic procedures is needed.  (+info)

Radiographic joint space in rheumatoid acromioclavicular joints: a 15 year prospective follow-up study in 74 patients. (2/85)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate radiographically the acromioclavicular joint space in patients with long-term rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: A cohort of 74 patients with RA was followed prospectively for 15 yr. At the end point, 148 shoulders were radiographed with a standard method. The acromioclavicular (AC) joint space was examined from the radiographs with a method developed previously for population studies; the joint space was measured at its superior and inferior border, and the average of the two measurements, the integral space, calculated. RESULTS: Mean AC joint space in RA patients was 4.9 (S.D. 3.7), range 0-20.5 mm; 6.2 mm (S.D. 5.1) in men and 4.5 mm (S.D. 3. 0) in women. An AC joint space wider than 7 mm in men was found in 11 (31%) out of 36 joints and wider than 6 mm in women in 17 (15%) out of 112 joints. Joint space widening was associated (r=0.87, 95% CI 0.82-0.90) with increasing destruction (Larsen grading) of the joint and it seems to be an inevitable consequence of AC joint affection in RA. Joint space widening is more progressive on the caudal side because of the nature of the erosive destruction. Degeneration with joint space narrowing was observed in 8 (11%) patients (11 joints, 7%; three bilateral). CONCLUSIONS: The largest value of the joint space may be used when evaluating rheumatoid AC joint space. In RA patients, a joint space of >7 mm in men and >5 mm in women is a sign of destructive AC joint affection.  (+info)

Relation of glenohumeral and acromioclavicular joint destruction in rheumatoid shoulder. A 15 year follow up study. (3/85)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the relation of glenohumeral (GH) and acromioclavicular (AC) joint involvement in a cohort of 74 patients with seropositive and erosive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) followed up prospectively. METHODS: At the 15 year follow up radiographs of 148 shoulders were evaluated, and the grade of destruction of GH and AC joints were assessed by the Larsen method. One GH joint arthroplasty had been performed after 13 years of the disease onset and the preoperative radiograph was evaluated. RESULTS: Erosive involvement (Larsen grade >/= 2) was observed in 96 of 148 (65%) of the shoulders. Both GH and AC joints were affected in 62 of 148 (42%) shoulders. GH joint alone was involved in nine (6%) shoulders and only AC joint was affected in 25 (17%) shoulders. AC joint destruction correlated with the GH joint destruction, r=0.74 (95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.65 to 0.80 ). CONCLUSION: In RA AC joint is affected more often than the GH joint, but in half of the patients both joints are involved. This should be remembered when treating painful rheumatoid shoulder.  (+info)

Arthroscopic Mumford procedure variation of technique. (4/85)

Fifty-seven patients had arthroscopic Mumford procedures for acromioclavicular pain non-responsive to conservative treatment. Thirty-nine of these patients had concomitant rotator cuff repairs. All had significant improvement of their distal clavicular pain. Neither the amount nor the completeness of distal clavicle resection affected the results. Arthroscopic distal clavicle resection is a safe and effective method of alleviating acromioclavicular pain.  (+info)

The relationship of age, gender, and degenerative changes observed on radiographs of the shoulder in asymptomatic individuals. (5/85)

Radiographs of the shoulders of 84 asymptomatic individuals aged between 40 and 83 years were evaluated to determine changes in 23 specific areas. Two fellowship-trained orthopaedic radiologists graded each area on a scale of 0 to II (normal 0, mild changes I, advanced changes II). Logistic regression analysis indicated age to be a significant predictor of change (p < 0.05) for sclerosis of the medial acromion and lateral clavicle, the presence of subchondral cysts in the acromion, formation of osteophytes at the inferior acromion and clavicle, and narrowing and degeneration of the acromioclavicular joint. Gender was not a significant predictor (p > 0.05) for radiological changes. Student's t-test determined significance (p < 0.05) between age and the presence of medial acromial and lateral clavicular sclerosis, subchondral acromial cysts, inferior acromial and clavicular osteophytes, and degeneration of the acromioclavicular joint. Radiological analysis in conditions such as subacromial impingement, pathology of the rotator cuff, and acromioclavicular degeneration should be interpreted in the context of the symptoms and normal age-related changes.  (+info)

Benefits and risks of using local anaesthetic for pain relief to allow early return to play in professional football. (6/85)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risks and benefits of the use of local anaesthetic in a descriptive case series from three professional football (rugby league and Australian football) teams. METHODS: Cases of local anaesthetic use (both injection and topical routes) and complications over a six year period were recorded. Complications were assessed using clinical presentation and also by recording all cases of surgery, incidences of players missing games or leaving the field through injury, and causes of player retirement. RESULTS: There were 268 injuries for which local anaesthetic was used to allow early return to play. There were 11 minor and six major complications, although none of these were catastrophic or career ending. About 10% of players taking the field did so with the assistance of local anaesthetic. This rate should be considered in isolation and not seen to reflect standard practice by team doctors. CONCLUSIONS: The use of local anaesthetic in professional football may reduce the rates of players missing matches through injury, but there is the risk of worsening the injury, which should be fully explained to players. A procedure should only be used when both the doctor and player consider that the benefits outweigh the risks.  (+info)

Coracoclavicular joint: osteologic study of 1020 human clavicles. (7/85)

We examined 1020 dry clavicles from cadavers of Italian origin to determine the prevalence of the coracoclavicular joint (ccj), a diarthrotic synovial joint occasionally present between the conoid tubercle of the clavicle and the superior surface of the horizontal part of the coracoid process. Five hundred and nine clavicles from individuals of different ages were submitted to X-ray examination. Using radiography, we measured the entire length and the index of sinuosity of the anterior lateral curve, on which the distance between the conoid tubercle and the coracoid process depends. We also used radiography to record the differences in prevalence of arthritis in two neighbouring joints, the acromioclavicular and sternoclavicular joints. Of the 1020 clavicles, eight (0.8%) displayed the articular facet of the ccj. No statistical correlation was found between clavicular length and the index of sinuosity of the anterior lateral curve. The prevalence of arthritis in clavicles with ccj was higher than that revealed in clavicles without ccj. The prevalence of ccj in the studied clavicles is lower than that observed in Asian cohorts. Furthermore, ccj is not conditioned by either length or sinuosity of the anterior lateral curve of the clavicle. Finally, the assumption that ccj is a predisposing factor for degenerative changes of neighbouring joints is statistically justified.  (+info)

Diagnostic and therapeutic injection of the shoulder region. (8/85)

The shoulder is the site of multiple injuries and inflammatory conditions that lend themselves to diagnostic and therapeutic injection. Joint injection should be considered after other therapeutic interventions such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, and activity-modification have been tried. Indications for glenohumeral joint injection include osteoarthritis, adhesive capsulitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. For the acromioclavicular joint, injection may be used for diagnosis and treatment of osteoarthritis and distal clavicular osteolysis. Subacromial injections are useful for a range of conditions including adhesive capsulitis, subdeltoid bursitis, impingement syndrome, and rotator cuff tendinosis. Scapulothoracic injections are reserved for inflammation of the involved bursa. Persistent pain related to inflammatory conditions of the long head of the biceps responds well to injection in the region. The proper technique, choice and quantity of pharmaceuticals, and appropriate follow-up are essential for effective outcomes.  (+info)

AbstractPURPOSE: To review the functional and radiological results of patients after coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction. METHODS: Five patients aged 21 to 50 (mean, 37) years with acute Rockwood type-III acromioclavicular dislocation underwent coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction with autogenous gracilis tendon grafts. Patients were either active in sports or heavy manual workers. Assessments on shoulder function (using the Constant score), wound size, pain (using a visual analogue scale), and reduction (using radiographs of both acromioclavicular joints) were made. RESULTS: The mean follow-up period was 26 (range, 15-43) months; the mean time to return to work or sports was 14 (range, 12-20) weeks. The mean Constant score was 94 (range, 90-98). The mean donor-site scar size was 3 cm and the mean pain score was 0. No major complication or donor-site morbidity was noted. There was one subluxation. CONCLUSION: Coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction using an autogenous gracilis tendon ...
A prospective randomized controlled clinical trial study was conducted to compare outcomes of operative management of type III acromioclavicular dislocations using combined intra-articular K-wire and coracoclavicular screw fixation against non-operative treatment. It included 54 (male=34, female=20) cases of type III acromioclavicular dislocations randomized into two groups A (operative) and B (non-operative). Group A cases underwent ORIF using combined intra-articular Kwire and coracoclavicular screw fixation. Group B cases were treated non-operatively using arm sling and rest. Mean follow-up period was 26.4 months (range=25-29). Maintenance of reduction was assessed by radiographic examination done pre-operatively and at follow-ups. Functional assessment was done using Constant Shoulder Score. Complications were recorded. Statistical analysis was done using unpaired Students T-test and p value ,0.001 was considered significant. Mean Constant Shoulder scores for group A and B were 10.16 and ...

The treatment of acute acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries depends mainly on the type of the dislocation and patient demands. This study compares the mid term outcome of two frequently performed surgical concepts of Rockwood grade III AC joint separations: The temporary articular fixation with K-wires (TKW) and the refixation with an absorbable polydioxansulfate (PDS) sling. Retrospective observational study of 86 patients with a mean age of 37 years underwent either TKW (n = 70) or PDS treatment (n = 16) of Rockwood grade III AC joint injuries. Mid term outcome with a mean follow up of 3 years was measured using a standardized functional patient questionnaire including Constant score, ASES rating scale, SPADI, XSMFA-D and a pain score. K-wire therapy resulted in significantly better functional results expressed by Constant score (88 ± 10 vs. 73 ± 18), ASES rating scale (29 ± 3 vs. 25 ± 5), SPADI (3 ± 9 vs. 9 ± 13), XSMFA-D function (13 ± 2 vs. 14 ± 3), XSMFA-D impairment (4 ± 1 vs. 6 ± 2)
Management of acute and chronic symptomatic type III, type IV, and type V acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries continues to be a challenge in orthopaedic surgery. No consensus currently exists on the optimal surgical treatment option, and various reconstruction procedures have been described. Previous surgical treatment attempts have resulted in an unacceptably high complication rate (20% to 40%). Recently, hook plate reconstruction and combined AC and coracoclavicular graft reconstruction have resulted in improved biomechanical stability and good outcomes in patients with these challenging injuries. This video demonstrates a new technique for AC joint reconstruction that involves hook plate fixation and AC and coracoclavicular graft placement. Performing coracoclavicular and AC ligament reconstruction in combination with the use of a temporary rigid internal splint, such as a hook plate, may result in a construct robust enough to avoid the relatively high failure rates associated with previous AC
The acromioclavicular joint is the union of bone where the high point of the shoulder blade meets with the collar bone. When this joint becomes injured, it is known as an acromioclavicular joint injury.
The acromioclavicular joint occurs between the acromial articular surface of the clavicle and the acromial articular surface of the scapula, and forms the connection between the two components of the shoulder girdle. The articulation may contain an articular disc, but if present it is small and varies greatly in the degree of its development. The disc is frequently incomplete and often entirely absent. The upper portion of the articular capsule is the strongest, and is still further reinforced by the acromioclavicular ligament. The acromioclavicular articulation has but a slight range of motion ...
The coracoclavicular ligament may be referred to as a complex because it is composed of two parts, the conoid and trapezoid ligaments. The conoid and trapezoid ligaments are continuous inferiorly at the coracoid process attachment but separate at an angle before attaching to the inferior aspect of the clavicle superiorly.[2] These two parts of the coracoclavicular ligament are often separated either by a bursa or by fat.. The conoid ligament attaches to the clavicle at the conoid tubercle, which is posterior medial to the trapezoid tubercle. From superior to inferior, the conoid ligament appears as an inferior pointing cone. Thus, the superior attachment at the clavicle is wide, while the inferior attachment is narrow, wrapping around the posteromedial aspect and root of the coracoid process. The other part of the coracoclavicular ligament, the trapezoid ligament, is typically anterior-lateral to the conoid ligament. It is quadrilateral in shape, as its name implies, and is thinner than the ...

MATERIAL AND METHOD: Prospective study of patients with acromioclavicular dislocation Rockwood grade iii-v, treated arthroscopically with a mean follow up of 25.4 months. The demographics of the series were recorded and evaluations were performed preoperatively, at 3 months and 2 years with validated questionnaires as Short Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36), visual analogue scale (VAS), The Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH), Constant-Murley Shoulder Outcome Score (Constant) and Walch-Duplay Score (WD ...
Activity: After your acromioclavicular joint reconstruction, you will be placed in an arm immobilizer. This should be kept in place until you are seen in the office for your first post op visit on the first office day after the surgery. You should not move the arm at all. The shoulder immobilizer should be comfortable and hold your arm securely. The shoulder immobilizer will be fitted to you in the operating room but may seem loose when you get home. Adjust the Velcro on the straps to make it more secure and we will adjust it in the office again. Whatever you do, do not remove the immobilizer and do not move the arm. This could disrupt the repair leading to a failure of the surgery. When you are seen in the office, we will explain what you can and cannot do with the arm and when you may begin therapy.. You may use your hand and bend your fingers as much as you can tolerate right after surgery. Just do not move the shoulder.. If you had surgery at the surgery center, you will likely have a ...

Patients with chronic Rockwoods type III AC dislocations can either be submitted to surgical stabilization or conservative treatment depending on whether or not the dislocation interferes with their daily activity, job, sports, shoulder strength and deformity. To our knowledge, this is the first paper recognising the fact that chronic AC dislocation may predispose cervical spine disorders. We hypothesized it as the trapezius muscle connects the clavicle, the scapula and the cervical spine with its fibres. We then assumed that an alteration of the tensioning of this muscle may cause cervical spine changes.. In the present series, both the osteophytosis and the narrowing of the intervertebral disc were commonly found at the levels C5-C6 and C6-C7 in the group of patients with chronic AC dislocation, while the upper cervical levels were only slightly, or not involved in degenerative changes. The same distribution in percentage was found in our control group and in the cohort of Hayashi et al. [10] ...

Introduction: Manual traction is a commonly used technique in manual therapy. However, depicting changes in joint space distance via real time imaging during traction is seldomly applied. The aims of the study were to identify ACJ joint space distance changes during manual traction and creation of a classification of the techniques upon the largest change in the resultant parameter (l) representing joint space distance. Material and methods: Thirteen healthy volunteers were examined unilaterally. Acromioclavicular joint space distance changes were measured with dynamic ultrasound imaging during followingmanual traction techniques: International Academy of Orthopedic Medicine technique (IAOM AC), Karel Lewits Prague School of Manual Medicine & Rehabilitation technique (LAC) and authors own proposition (B AC). The differences in joint space distance between resting position (RP) and the traction technique position, created three parameters of displacement - horizontal (x), vertical (y) and (l) - ...

Injuries to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint are one of the most common among sporting injuries of the upper extremity. Several studies investigated different treatment options comparing surgical and non-surgical treatment, and type of operative interventions. This study aims to evaluate treatment decisions regarding injuries of the AC joint and to compare different treatment strategies depending on the specific training of the treating physician. We performed a nationwide survey by contacting different experienced physicians and sending them questionnaires. The questionnaire included 37 questions that assessed preferred treatment strategies in AC joint injuries. We addressed different surgical and nonsurgical options as well as level of experience and factors that might influence the decision on treatment strategy. The physicians were stratified according to their training into general surgeons (group trauma associated) and orthopedic surgeons (orthopedic associated). The AC joint lesions were

Considering the epidemiology of acromioclavicular (AC) dislocation related to young and active patients, the impact on working capacity is highly relevant. The purpose of this study was to determine the capacity of work and time to return to work (RTW) after AC joint stabilization. We hypothesized that manual working patients show more restrictions returning to work. In this retrospective case series, pre- and posttraumatic working capacity of 54 patients (FU-rate 80.1%, FU time 23, range 18-45 month) stabilized in single TightRope technique was analyzed. Clinical outcome (DASH, Constant-Murley score) and complications were evaluated in addition. Fifty one of 54 patients (94.5%) were returned to work at final follow-up. The median time to return was 13 (5-143) weeks. Manual working patients showed lower RTW-rates (91.2% vs. 100%; p = .151), longer RTW-time (15.5 vs. 6 weeks; p = .008), and more often persistent shoulder symptoms at work (55.9% vs. 5%; p | .001).

Eleven patients with a chronic acromio-clavicular joint disruption underwent acromio-clavicular joint stabilisation using the Nottingham Surgilig and were followed up clinically and radiologically for an average of 24 months post operation. The mean post-operative Constant score was 83.1, the Imatani score was 81.2 and the Walsh score was 14.1. Eighty-two per cent of patients were satisfied with the operation. There was one case of rupture through the central portion of the Surgilig, and following laboratory analysis, the ligament has been modified since. In 4 patients there was evidence of loosening of the screw but only one complained of this being a problem. This short-term outcome analysis of the Nottingham Surgilig is the first such report outside the Nottingham unit where the prosthesis was originally developed. Our results are encouraging and justify further use and evaluation of this relatively new technique.

Acromioclavicular separations are common injuries. Low-grade separations are typically managed with nonoperative treatment. However, surgical treatment is recommended for high-grade separations, as well as for chronic low-grade separations that remain symptomatic. Multiple fixation techniques have been described over the past several decades, including Kirschner wires, hook plates, and coracoclavicular screws. More recently, a single-tunnel suture-graft repair and an anatomic reconstruction reproducing both the conoid and trapezoid ligaments have been described. All described techniques have reported complications, including implant migration, need for implant removal, clavicle or coracoid fracture, and loss of reduction. As a result, there is no single optimal method of operative fixation. We describe our technique for an arthroscopically assisted anatomic coracoclavicular repair using a 6-strand suture tape and cortical button construct.

Weightlifters shoulder is the layman term given to a condition known as distal clavicular osteolysis where high stresses placed on the acromioclavicular joint (where the clavicle/collarbone meets the acromion of the shoulder blade) causes pathology to occur here. The findings made on ultrasound investigation of the affected acromioclavicular joint include: Bone resorption (absorption back into. ...

Penetrating neck injuries are stressful events for surgeons. The risk of iatrogenic damage to surrounding structures is high and makes flawless knowledge of the neck anatomy mandatory. K-wire migration into the cervical spine after fixation of a fractured clavicle is rare. Apart from injury to the vertebral artery, it may cause damage to the nerve roots, dura mater, and spinal cord. When such material penetrates the vertebral canal, a wide laminectomy is required to expose both ends of the K-wire, followed by dura mater repair and hemostasis [4, 5]. In the presented case there was a risk of causing injury to the vertebral artery while removing the K-wire. Mwipatayi et al. never attempted to repair the vertebral artery in cases with such an injury. In all cases the vessel was ligated, clipped or hemostasis was attained using bone wax [6].. In general, the vertebral artery can be divided in four anatomical segments: V1 to V4 [14, 15]. Care must be taken to account for anatomical variations of ...

Background: Clavicular hook plates are effective fixation devices for lateral end clavicle fractures and acromioclavicular joint dislocations and have been extensively used in the last decade. Although this plate achieves a high percentage of union, there are concerns about sub-acromial osteolysis and impingement of supraspinatus tendon. Objective: To show that impingement of supraspinatus tendon can be prevented by measuring the depth between acromion and supraspinatus tendon posteriorly and using hook plates of appropriate depth. Materials and Methods: We performed a prospective study on 25 patients with lateral end clavicle fractures and acromio clavicular joint disruptions by measuring the depth between posterior border of acromion and the superior border of supraspinatus at the point of application of hook plate. Fixation is then done by appropriate sized hook plate. Results: None of the patients had impingement of supraspinatus tendon. Five patients developed subacromial osteolysis which did not
Family physicians often are required to evaluate patients who present with acute skeletal trauma. The first of this two-part series discusses the features and evaluation of some commonly missed fractures and dislocations of the upper limb, excluding the hand. Dislocations of the sternoclavicular joint are infrequent and often missed. Clavicular fractures in adults usually are not hard to diagnose. Acromioclavicular joint dislocations represent about 10 percent of all dislocation injuries to the shoulder girdle. Forty percent of all dislocations occur at the glenohumeral joint. Scapular fractures are often a result of significant force. Multiple views should be obtained in adults with a suspected fracture of the elbow. Complications in fractures of the wrist are strongly related to the location of the fracture.
Andrew Lim The superior surface of the clavicle has a smooth appearance. Anatomy terms allow us to describe the body and body motions more precisely. It does not properly belong to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint articulation, but is usually described with it, since it forms a efficient means of retaining the clavicle in contact with the acromion.It consists of two fasciculi, the trapezoid ligament in front, and the conoid ligament behind. The clavicle can be palpated along its length, and can is visible under the skin in a thin person. The acromial or lateral end of the clavicle has an oval facet for articulation with the acromion of the scapula to form the acromioclavicular joint. This article will discuss the anatomy of the clavicle. The shaft (or diaphysis, or body) refers to the middle part of any long bone. The clavicle is located at the top of the thoracic wall, just below the neck and to the sides of the sternum. Blood supply Suprascapular and thoracoaromial arteries Nerve supply ...
A joint dislocation, also called luxation, occurs when there is an abnormal separation in the joint, where two or more bones meet. A partial dislocation is referred to as a subluxation. Dislocations are often caused by sudden trauma on the joint like an impact or fall. A joint dislocation can cause damage to the surrounding ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Dislocations can occur in any joint major (shoulder, knees, etc.) or minor (toes, fingers, etc.). The most common joint dislocation is a shoulder dislocation. Treatment for joint dislocation is usually by closed reduction, that is, skilled manipulation to return the bones to their normal position. Reduction should be done only by trained people, because it can cause injury to soft tissue around the dislocation. The following symptoms are common with any type of dislocation. Intense pain Joint instability Deformity of the joint area Reduced muscle strength Bruising or redness of joint area Difficulty moving joint Stiffness Joint ...

The shoulder is made up of the humerus, glenoid, scapula, acromion, clavicle and bordering gentle tissue constructions. The shoulder area features the glenohumeral joint, the acromioclavicular joint, the sternoclavicular joint as well as the scapulothoracic articulation (Determine 1a). The glenohumeral joint capsule is made of a fibrous capsule, ligaments and the visit glenoid labrum. As a consequence of its deficiency of bony security, the glenohumeral joint would be the most commonly dislocated important joint in the human body ...
Michael Kang, MD, from the Insall Scott Kelly Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, shared his tips for managing labral pathology with hip arthroscopy with attendees at the Insall Scott Kelly 13th Annual Sports Medicine and Total Knee & Hip Course, sponsored by the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction.. Highlights of his presentation include the following advice:. Imaging. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has a 90% sensitivity for diagnosing labral pathology. Dr. Kang prefers a 1.5 T MRI, with an isolated hip coil. Many patients who are referred to him have had a pelvic MRI, which he says is inadequate. He also likes to order plain radiographs to detect impingement.. Tractioning. Dr. Kang uses a cushioned post and starts with the hip in neutral abduction with 10 degrees of flexion and 20% of internal rotation. He will adduct the leg until the seal is broken to lateralize the head.. Portal placement. An anterolateral portal is placed first, and then Dr. Kang places a ...

BACKGROUND A rotator cuff registry was established to prospectively evaluate the effectiveness of all-arthroscopic repairs. The purpose of this study is to report prognostic factors for successful clinical and radiographic outcomes at 5 years. METHODS One-hundred ninety-three patients underwent all-arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs. Pre- and intraoperative data were compared to the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon (ASES) score, range of motion, muscle strength, and ultrasound results at 5 years using univariate, and multivariate analyses. RESULTS At 5 years, 106 patients completed follow-up. There were no pre- or intraoperative variables that were predictive of an ASES score |90. Factors predictive of a radiographic defect were larger size of the lesion (OR 1.72, 95% CI 1.04-2.85, P = .03), multiple tendon involvement (OR 5.56, 95% CI 1.23-25.22, P = .02), older age (OR 1.15, 95% CI 1.04-1.28, P = .01), concomitant biceps (OR 16.16, 95% CI 3.01-86.65, P = .001), and acromioclavicular joint
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether work performed with the arms in a highly elevated position is associated with alterations in the rotator cuff tendons as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in a historical cohort of male machinists, car mechanics, and house painters. The participants were right-handed, ages 40-50 years, and had been employed in their trades for not less than 10 years. Seventy-one percent of invited subjects participated (136 of 192). Lifetime upper arm elevation was assessed by direct measurements combined with individual work histories obtained by questionnaire and from registry data. Supraspinatus tendinopathy was evidenced by MRI signal intensity changes and morphologic alterations. Infraspinatus and subscapularis tendinopathy were also assessed. Additional outcomes were acromioclavicular joint degeneration and humeral head cysts. The MRI findings were evaluated by radiologists who were blinded to exposure status and ...
Arthroscopy is also known as key hole surgery due to its minimally invasive nature. A Shoulder Arthroscopy can be used to remove debris from within the shoulder such as a bone fragment, and also be used to repair rotator cuff tears. Acromioclavicular joint arthritis, frozen shoulders, and bicep tendonitis can also be treated using Arthroscopy. Small tools and incisions are used, which can sometimes give a faster recovery to a patient than someone who undergoes open shoulder surgery. An Arthroscopy can also be used to get a better look inside the joint before a different procedure ...

Four patients with complications were returned to the operating room for manipulation under anesthesia (1) and arthroscopic debridement of lateral meniscal tear and loose body removal (3).. In the fixed-bearing UKA, 2 cases returned to the operating room for conversion to total knee arthroplasty for tibial plateau fracture, and 3 underwent manipulation under anesthesia for arthrofibrosis.. Discussion. With advances in implant design and surgical technique, UKA has evolved as a safe and reliable intervention for patients with unicompartmental knee arthritis. [1,2] Several previous series have examined outcomes and complications associated with these implants, but their cohort numbers have been relatively low in relation to other arthroplasty literature. [7,9,10,11]. Proponents of mobile-bearing designs argue for a more normal restoration of knee kinematics, which may theoretically translate to better long-term knee range of motion. Li et al found this to be false, as both mobile- and ...

0006]In other words, the present invention uses model data which is suitable for the upcoming bone reconstruction, in order to be able to deduce the abrasion or resection regions by processing such model information. Such model data, which can be model image data, can easily be processed and linked to the patient data set, in particular an image data set, and this also leads to quick results, in particular without the content of a patient image data set having to be elaborately analyzed. For in such analyses, the properties of the elements to be imaged, their identity and their delineation with respect to other elements are deduced from the image material; this process is called segmentation. Segmentation is computationally very elaborate, and the corresponding planning steps therefore take a relatively long time. If segmentation steps can be omitted with the aid of the model data, this enables planning to be more flexibly used and also to be adapted and changed. It is also in particular ...
The AC joint is often the site of arthritis and come on from overuse or impact (most often seen in athletes (hockey, football, baseball, weight lifters, or overhead work). Pain and dysfunction from the AC joint often can cause impingement of the rotator cuff, and as such may present with muscle weakness, pain down the arm as far as the elbow, and a painful arc of motion. The symptoms that you experience during the arc of motion can help differentiate if it is just the joint that is irritable, or if there may be a rotator cuff impingement; If you have pain between 45-120 degrees abduction, but no pain before or after this range, then it is likely that you have an impingement of supraspinatus muscle (with or without an inflamed bursa). If you only have pain at the very top of this range of motion, it is likely that your AC joint is irritable. ...

A resection arthroplasty involves the surgical removal of the last 0.5 in (1.3 cm) of the collarbone. This removal leaves a space between the acromion and the cut end of the collarbone where the AC joint used to be. The joint is replaced by scar tissue, which allows movement to occur, but prevents the rubbing of the bone ends. The end result of the surgery is that the flexible connection between the acromion and the collarbone is restored. The procedure is usually performed by making a small 2 in (5 cm) incision in the skin over the AC joint. In some cases, the surgery can be done arthroscopically. In this approach, the surgeon uses an endoscope to look through a small hole into the shoulder joint. The endoscope is an instrument of the size of a pen, consisting of a tube fitted with a light and a miniature video camera, which transmits an image of the joint interior to a television monitor. The surgeon proceeds to remove the segment of collarbone through a small incision with little disruption ...
I dislocated my knee once. Probably the most pain I have ever been in in my life. It took 2 ambulance crews 2 hours, 2 bottles of gas and an injection to finally manage to get me to the hospital. They kept hoping it would pop back in if they tried to move , it didnt and eventually they gave up.Doctor on duty walked over, looked at it, said I know what to do and grabbed my kneecap (which was round the side of my leg) and tried to force it back into place. I screamed like a girl. He eventually decided that wasnt going to work either so they knocked me out completely to reset it. I spent 6 weeks with a full length cast on, followed by an operation on each knee to move the tendons over to prevent further dislocations. The operation apparently involved chipping out the bit of bone where the tendons attach, making a little hole for it a bit further over and sticking the bit of bone back in. Another 6 weeks in plaster for each leg. That was about 7 years ago, no dislocations since, but on the down ...

This paper considers a compressive sensing (CS) approach for hyperspectral data acquisition, which results in a practical compression ratio substantially higher than the state-of-the-art. Applying simultaneous low-rank and joint-sparse (L&S) model to the hyperspectral data, we propose a novel algorithm to joint reconstruction of hyperspectral data based on loopy belief propagation that enables the exploitation of both structured sparsity and amplitude correlations in the data. Experimental results with real hyperspectral datasets demonstrate that the proposed algorithm outperforms the state-of-the-art CS-based solutions with substantial reductions in reconstruction error ...

This article written by Ben Rockwood. A couple weeks ago, I was trying to architect the next evolution of security infrastructure and made an outline of major areas in which I need to focus. Pondering the list it occurred to me that it looked like the table of contents of a standard. Id never really paid much attention to them, after all, everyone gripes about them and claims they are bureaucratic trash imposed on good engineers by dim-witted management. Why waste my time? But then, I stepped back, with a childs eye, and admitted to myself that I really had no idea what any of this stuff meant. After all, thats the problem with security: when are you done? When can you say Great! Its secure! and move on? Ive always hate security, and I think this ambiguity was precisely why.
