If your doctor has told you that you need shoulder surgery and you're worried about complications, a new British study indicates you can relax. Only 1.2% of more than 260,000 patients suffered from complications following arthroscopic surgery to repair shoulder injuries, the researchers reported.
Ruptures of the deltoid muscle tendon are rare injuries that are infrequently reported in the literature. Although these can occur with trauma, prior shoulder surgery or steroid injections, the most frequent presentation of deltoid muscle tendon rupture is atraumatic in nature and typically seen in patients with a history of massive rotator cuff tear (RCT).
Shoulder pain can range from mild to severe and can come on suddenly or build up over time. Shoulder pain causes include fractures, tissue inflammation or tears, joint or ligament instability, and arthritis.
Patients who underwent arthroscopy prior to total shoulder arthroplasty had a greater risk of periprosthetic joint infection, according to results presented at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting.
Total Elbow Arthroplasty Gives Good Functional Outcome in Distal Humerus Fracture with Pre-existing Chronic Elbow Dislocation
Distal humerus fracture with concomitant chronic elbow dislocation is difficult to manage by open reduction and internal fixation, while total elbow arthroplasty (TEA).
