BACKGROUND: This radiological study aims to assess the prevalence of lateral elbow pathology in an asymptomatic population using 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: Bilateral elbow MRI was undertaken in 30 asymptomatic volunteers. Exclusion criteria included elbow pain within 3 months, elbow trauma or previous diagnosis of lateral epicondylar tendinopathy. Baseline patient-reported outcome measures were recorded along with age and body mass index (BMI)...

BACKGROUND: The incidence rate of olecranon fractures is highest in the elderly population. The aim of this study was to determine whether patients with olecranon fractures have similar demographic and risk characteristics compared to patients with osteoporotic upper extremity fractures. METHODS: A retrospective data analysis was performed with diagnoses for olecranon fracture, distal radius fracture and proximal humerus fracture between 2014 and 2016. RESULTS: A total of 157 olecranon, 1022 distal radius and 451 proximal humerus fractures were identified...

INTRODUCTION: Terrible triad injuries (TTIs) of the elbow have traditionally been reported to have poor outcomes, hence requiring surgical stabilisation. We identified and reviewed patients with TTIs treated non-operatively within our department. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients with TTI treated non-operatively with standardised elbow-instability rehabilitation from 2010 to 2020. We used Mason and Morrey classifications for radial head and coronoid fractures, respectively...

BACKGROUND: A total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) system utilizing an inlay glenoid component has been proposed as a means of reducing glenoid component loosening while still providing patients with desirable functional and clinical outcomes. The purpose of this study was to systematically review current outcomes literature on TSA using an inlay glenoid component. METHODS: A literature search was conducted using PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and Web of Science databases...

Apert syndrome, first described in the literature by a French pediatrician Eugene Apert, is a rare congenital form of acrocephalodactyly with autosomal dominant inheritance. Classically, this syndrome is characterized by craniosynostosis, midface hypoplasia, and symmetrical syndactyly of hands and feet resulting from embryonic anomalies during the third week of gestation. It is also associated with a variety of abnormalities of the viscera, involving the neurological, genitourinary, and cardiorespiratory systems...

BACKGROUND: The primary aim of this study was to assess the long-term patient reported outcomes of arthroscopic rotator cuff tear (ARCR) using a single anchor tension band (TB) technique for small and medium supraspinatus tears at minimum 5-years follow-up. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of consecutive ARCRs of small and medium supraspinatus tears using a knotless single anchor TB technique with minimum 5-year follow-up was carried out. Outcomes of interest included: range of motion (ROM) on examination under anaesthesia (EUA), visual analogue scale (VAS), American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) scores, Oxford Shoulder Score (OSS) and Short-Form (SF-12)...

BACKGROUND: Imbalances in soft tissue stiffness (STS) of the pectoralis and common wrist extensors (CWEs) can adversely alter upper extremity function. Shear wave elastography (SWE) has the capacity to provide precise, repeatable, objective data on STS. The purpose of this study was to determine the between-day intrarater reliability for the pectoralis and CWE tendon stiffness as measured by SWE. METHODS: STS measured by the shear wave modulus (kilopascals (kPa)) was captured bilaterally on the pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, and CWE tendon using 2D SWE ultrasound imaging (GE Logiq S8, 9 L transducer) on two separate days...

BACKGROUND: There are many surgical techniques when repairing pectoralis major tears. However, there is no clear consensus on which repair technique is biomechanically superior. Our purpose was to perform a systematic review and meta-regression to evaluate the most biomechanically superior pectoralis major repair technique. METHODS: We performed a systematic review and meta-regression of six human cadaveric biomechanical studies evaluating fixation techniques for pectoralis major repairs...

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus concerning the rehabilitation protocol following reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Several patients are expecting to be able to use their arms for sports or recreation shortly after their operation. METHODS: This review was designed as an intervention systematic review with narrative analysis. Authors searched English literature in PubMed and Embase databases from 1/1/1989 until July 2022. Controlled studies comparing rehabilitation protocols for patients undergoing reverse shoulder arthroplasty were included...

BACKGROUND: Current commercial elbow braces have a straight hinge that does not account for the native carrying angle of the elbow. The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a custom-designed hinged elbow orthosis (HEO) with variable valgus angulations in stabilizing a lateral collateral ligament (LCL) deficient elbow. METHODS: Eight cadaveric upper extremities were mounted in an elbow motion simulator in the abducted varus gravity-loaded position...

BACKGROUND: Fractures of the distal humerus are a common fragility fracture in older adults. The purpose of this study was to systematically review the literature to produce pooled estimates of the outcomes of treatment using total elbow arthroplasty (TEA), open reduction and locking plate fixation (ORIF), hemiarthroplasty or with conservative management. METHODS: A systematic review of PUBMED and EMBASE databases was conducted for studies reporting outcomes of intra-articular fractures in older adults...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare the reliability and agreement between two devices - Wii Fit Balance Board (WBB) versus Hand-Held Dynamometer (HHD) to measure isometric strength during the athletic shoulder (ASH) test in healthy amateur rugby players. METHODS: Fifteen males (23.73 ± 2.8 years) completed two testing sessions. Maximal isometric contractions using the dominant arm (D) and non-dominant arm (ND) against a WBB and HHD were assessed at three angles of abduction (180°, 'I'; 135°, 'Y' and 90°, 'T'), in a prone lying position...

This systematic review aims to provide normative values for internal and external glenohumeral rotation strength in rugby players. From the inception to March 2021, the search strategy was (strength OR torque) AND shoulder AND rugby using PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, and SPORTDiscus databases, with no language restrictions. This systematic review includes 15 articles involving 573 rugby players and presenting internal or external glenohumeral rotation strength values. Two main methods are used to assess glenohumeral rotation strength in rugby players: isokinetic and isometric methods; in the isometric method, the upper arm is abducted at either 0° or 90°...

BACKGROUND: The region where the ulnar nerve (UN) is swollen in baseball players with ulnar neuropathy is not apparent. This study investigated the UN's cross-sectional area (CSA) at each entrapment point in baseball players. We also aimed to clarify the relationship between valgus instability and the CSA of the UN. METHODS: Forty baseball players were separated into healthy and ulnar neuropathy groups. The CSA and valgus instability were measured using ultrasonography (US)...

BACKGROUND: Proprioception is vital for motor control and can be disturbed, for example, due to fatigue or injury. Clinical feasible, reliable and valid tests of shoulder proprioception are warranted. The aim was to investigate the effects of local fatigue on shoulder proprioception and the reliability of a feasible joint position sense test using an experimental repeated measures design. METHOD: Forty participants repeated a shoulder joint position sense test to assess test-retest reliability...
