There are a number of issues that can cause shoulder pain, including osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, fractures, rheumatoid arthritis or other inflammatory disorders, or osteonecrosis which impacts blood flow to the humerus.
Patients aged 80 years and older had low rates of perioperative mortality and reoperation after anatomic and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, according to results published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
Elbow hemiarthroplasty and total elbow arthroplasty provided a similar functional outcome for unreconstructable distal humeral fractures in patients aged 60 years or older: a multicenter randomized controlled trial
Semiconstrained total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is an established treatment for elderly patients with distal humeral fractures not amenable to stable internal fixation (unreconstructable).
Young Collision Athletes have High Rate of Return to Play and Good Clinical Outcomes Following Open Latarjet Procedure
The purpose of this study was to evaluate return to play (RTP), clinical outcomes and recurrence rates in collision athletes 20 years of age and younger who underwent open Latarjet for anterior shoulder instability.
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.
