    ABSTRACT: PURPOSE: This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the extent of the labral lesion and the frequency of glenohumeral dislocation in patients with shoulder instability. METHODS: Ninety-three patients, who underwent surgical treatment at our clinic for chronic anterior shoulder dislocation, were selected and divided into 3 groups (group I: only Bankart lesion; group II: Bankart and SLAP lesions; group III: circumferential-labral lesion). The pre-operative frequency of dislocation, intraoperative findings, operation time, post-operative clinical score, and range of motion 2 years after surgery were analysed and compared among the 3 groups. RESULTS: The time interval from the initial dislocation to operation was significantly shorter in group III than in groups I and II (P = 0.034 and P = 0.046, respectively). The median number of preoperative dislocations was also significantly less in group III than in groups I and II (P = 0.025 and P = 0.044, respectively). In all groups, the clinical scores (Constant, Rowe, and visual analogue scale) improved significantly post-operatively, and there were no significant differences in the scores between the different groups. All patients returned to work, and most patients returned to their preoperative sports activity levels. CONCLUSION: The extent of the labral lesion is not always related to the number of dislocations; therefore, treatment should not be based on this. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Retrospective comparative study, Level III.

    ABSTRACT: Some authors have described the ganglion cyst of the spinoglenoidal notch as related to repetitive overhead activities and labral tear caused by trauma, while others have explained lesions of the capsulolabral complex and ganglion cysts to have separate pathologies. The purpose of this study is to compare clinical and radiological outcomes between 2 groups: 1 with superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) repair only and the other with SLAP repair and cyst decompression prospectively. From August 2000 to March 2007, 28 patients matching the inclusion criteria were selected for the study. They were divided into 2 groups: 1 who received SLAP repair and the other with concomitant SLAP repair and cyst decompression. A visual analogue scale (VAS) and Rowe and Constant scores were used to make evaluation. Preoperative magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of 2 patient groups were compared with 2 follow-up MRIs taken 3 months after the operation and at final follow-up. Mean VAS and Constant and Rowe scores in groups I and II improved significantly from mean preoperative score compared to last follow-up score; however, there was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups (P > .05). Preoperative MRI and arthroscopy revealed type II SLAP lesions and a type V lesion, respectively, as accompanying lesions in 24 cases. The hypothesis stating 1-way valve mechanism of SLAP lesion as an initial cause of ganglion cysts has been proved indirectly in this study. Furthermore, direct decompression of the cyst does not lead to different results.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: To evaluate and report the clinical outcome after surgical treatment of intra-articular comminuted fracture of distal humerus in the elderly with osteoporosis. Materials and Methods: From January 2007 to October 2009, 24 patients aged older than 65 years with intra-articular comminuted fracture of distal humerus underwent surgical treatment. 18 patients (Group I) were managed using primary open reduction and internal fixation (OR IF) through the modified posterior approach and 6 patients (Group II) were taken primary total elbow arthroplasty. The average follow up period was 17.2 months. According to the AO classification, there were 8 C2, 16 C3 type fractures. All enrolled patients were evaluated radiographically and clinically. Clinical outcomes were assessed with the Mayo Elbow Performance, Disabilities of Arm and Shoulder and Hand, and Musculoskeletal Functional Assessment functional questionnaires. Results: The bony union was observed in 18 patients in group I at average 14 weeks. There were 2 patients with neurapraxia of whom the ulnar nerve symptom did not improve despite of anterior transposition. And non-union at osteotomy sites was seen in 2 patients. The mean Mayo Elbow Performance score was 87.0. The mean DASH score was 32.4. The average arc of elbow flexion was (range, ) with mean flexion-contracture of (range, 0 to 35). 6 patients in Group II showed no complication during follow up periods. The mean Mayo Elbow Performance score was 89.1. The mean DASH score was 44.3. The average arc of elbow flexion was (range, ) with mean flexion-contracture of (range, 0 to 30). Conclusions: With careful patient selection, Total elbow arthroplasty as well as OR IF could achieve good outcomes in elderly of comminuted intra-articular distal humerus fracture with osteoporosis.

    ABSTRACT: Anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has been presented as a means to more accurately restore the native anatomy of this ligament. This article describes a new method that uses a double bundle to perform ACL reconstruction and to evaluate the clinical outcome. Grafts are tibialis anterior tendon allograft for anteromedial bundle (AMB) and hamstring tendon autograft without detachment of the tibial insertion for posterolateral bundle (PLB). This technique creates 2 tunnels in both the femur and tibia. Femoral fixation was done by hybrid fixation using Endobutton and Rigidfix for AMB and by biointerference screw for PLB. Tibial fixations are done by Retroscrew for AMB and by native insertion of hamstring tendon for PLB. Both bundles are independently and differently tensioned. We performed ACL reconstruction in 63 patients using our new technique. Among them, 47 participated in this study. The patients were followed up with clinical examination, Lysholm scales and International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) scoring system and radiological examination with a minimum 12 month follow-up duration. Significant improvement was seen on Lachman test and pivot-shift test between preoperative and last follow-up. Only one of participants had flexion contracture about 5 degrees at last follow-up. In anterior drawer test by KT-1000, authors found improvement from average 8.3 mm (range, 4 to 18 mm) preoperatively to average 1.4 mm (range, 0 to 6 mm) at last follow-up. Average Lysholm score of all patients was 72.7 ± 8.8 (range, 54 to 79) preoperatively and significant improvement was seen, score was 92.2 ± 5.3 (range, 74 to 97; p < 0.05) at last follow-up. Also IKDC score was normal in 35 cases, near normal in 11 cases, abnormal in 1 case at last follow-up. Our new double bundle ACL reconstruction technique used hybrid fixation and Retroscrew had favorable outcomes.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to compare clinical outcomes between a primary dislocation group (group P) and a recurrent dislocation group (group R) with combined lesion of Bankart and type II SLAP lesions (type V SLAP lesion) and to evaluate incidence of type V SLAP lesion. In addition, the authors evaluated clinical outcomes of these patients by dividing two groups according to the sequence for Bankart and SLAP lesion suture. From May 2000 to May 2005, 310 patients who gave informed consent, underwent the diagnostic arthroscopy and magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA). One hundred and ten patients met the following criteria: (1) post-traumatic primary or recurrent anterior shoulder instability, (2) a normal contralateral shoulder, (3) a type V SLAP lesion, and (4) minimum follow-up of two years. Group P included 42 patients, and group R, 68 patients. Among all patients, 58 patients who had Bankart lesions sutured first were included in group B, and 52 who had their SLAP lesions sutured beforehand, group S. Visual analogue scale, range of motion, Rowe and Constant score were used to compare results between group P and group R, also group B and group S. The incidence rates of type V SLAP lesion were 42.8% in group P and 32.0% in group R. The overall treatment results in our study were good. Even if the difference between the two groups was statistically insignificant, group P showed greater recovery of range of motion than group R in external rotation. No significant difference was found between the two different operative methods according to suture sequence. The incidence rates of type V SLAP lesion were 42.8% in the primary dislocation group and 32.0% in the recurrent dislocation group. The overall treatment results in our study were good. Although there was no statistical significance in surgical time between the two groups, when both SLAP and Bankart lesions are present, the Bankart lesion must be sutured first to reduce surgical time.

    ABSTRACT: Despite the attention that has been paid to restoration of the capsulolabral complex anatomic insertion onto the glenoid, studies comparing the pressurized contact area and mean interface pressure at the anatomic insertion site between a single-row repair and a double-row labral repair have been uncommon. The purpose of our study was to compare the mean interface pressure and pressurized contact area at the anatomic insertion site of the capsulolabral complex between a single-row repair and a double-row repair technique. Controlled laboratory study. Thirty fresh-frozen cadaveric shoulders (mean age, 61 ± 8 years; range, 48-71 years) were used for this study. Two types of repair were performed on each specimen: (1) a single-row repair and (2) a double-row repair. Using pressure-sensitive films, we examined the interface contact area and contact pressure. The mean interface pressure was greater for the double-row repair technique (0.29 ± 0.04 MPa) when compared with the single-row repair technique (0.21 ± 0.03 MPa) (P = .003). The mean pressurized contact area was also significantly greater for the double-row repair technique (211.8 ± 18.6 mm(2), 78.4% footprint) compared with the single-row repair technique (106.4 ± 16.8 mm(2), 39.4% footprint) (P = .001). The double-row repair has significantly greater mean interface pressure and pressurized contact area at the insertion site of the capsulolabral complex than the single-row repair. The double-row repair may be advantageous compared with the single-row repair in restoring the native footprint area of the capsulolabral complex.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the accompanying lesions of humerus greater tuberosity fracture with anterior shoulder dislocation and to analyze its clinical results. Materials and Methods: From May 2005 to November 2008, arthroscopy was performed on a total of 30 selected patients who were diagnosed with humerus greater tuberosity fracture with anterior shoulder dislocation and who were also under the age of 40. The preoperative and postoperative Constant and Rowe scores were compared. Results: There was a total of 21 cases of anteroinferior labral lesions: 2 Bankart lesions, 4 bony Bankart lesions, 4 Perthes lesions, 2 free ALPSA lesions, 3 GLAD lesions and 6 capsular tears. For other lesions, 5 rotator cuff partial tears, 3 SLAP lesions and 1 biceps tendon rupture were found. The constant scores were increased from 56.3 to 94.43 points (p=0.034), and the Rowe scores were increased from 52.56 to 91.76 points (p=0.026). Conclusion: For humerus greater tuberosity fracture with anterior shoulder dislocation, the accompanying lesion was identified and the fracture was treated using arthroscopy. Good clinical results and bone union were achieved. According to the secondary arthroscopic findings, all of the Perthes lesion, the free ALPSA lesion, the GLAD lesion and the capsular tear spontaneously healed or they did not progress to extended rupture although arthroscopic suture was not performed. Any postoperative secondary instability was not observed.

    ABSTRACT: Many authors have reported the presence of intra-articular lesions after primary dislocation of the shoulder joint. However, few studies have focused on their prevalence or the differences in accompanying lesions between primary and recurrent dislocations of the shoulder joint. This study was undertaken to investigate and analyze accompanying lesions, including types of anteroinferior labrum injuries, using diagnostic arthroscopy and magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) in 144 patients with traumatic anterior dislocation of the shoulder joint. Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. There were 33 patients with 33 dislocations in the primary dislocation group and 111 patients with 111 dislocations in the recurrent dislocation group. Preoperative magnetic resonance arthrography and diagnostic arthroscopy were performed on all patients. In the primary dislocation group, 8 Bankart lesions, 9 free anterior labrum periosteal sleeve avulsion (ALPSA) lesions, 4 bony Bankart lesions, and 1 adhesive ALPSA lesion were observed. In the recurrent dislocation group, 68 Bankart lesions, 11 free ALPSA lesions, 13 bony Bankart lesions, 16 adhesive ALPSA lesions, and 1 glenoid articular rim disruption lesion were found. There were 22 (66.6%) and 109 (98.1%) patients with lesions in the anteroinferior labrum in the primary and recurrent groups, respectively. There was a statistically significant difference between the 2 groups (P = .002). Also, there was a significant difference between the 2 groups in the prevalence of the Hill-Sachs lesion and inverted pear-shaped glenoid lesion (P = .008/P = .047). Inverted pear-shaped glenoids were observed in 15 patients in the recurrent group. In 139 of 144 patients, surgical findings of accompanying lesions coincided with magnetic resonance arthrography findings (96.5%). Various forms of anteroinferior labral lesions were seen in patients with traumatic anterior dislocation of shoulder. The recurrent dislocation group showed a significantly higher prevalence of anteroinferior labral lesions and bony lesions in comparison with the primary group. In our study, magnetic resonance arthrography was an accurate method to assess accompanying lesions in first-time and recurrent anterior dislocation of the shoulder, suggesting that this may be a useful tool for determining a treatment method.

    ABSTRACT: Scapular fractures account for approximately 1% of all fractures, and 8% to 10% are acromion fractures. We compared the results of early and delayed treatment for nondisplaced and type III acromion fractures, respectively, to investigate an early treatment method for nondisplaced acromion fractures. Patients treated between March 1999 and March 2006 with 2-year follow-up were selected for the study. The early fixation group comprised 16 patients, and the delayed reconstruction group comprised 18 patients. Moreover, the delayed reconstruction group was further divided into 2 additional groups: delayed group B and delayed group N. Delayed group B comprised 7 cases receiving bone graft, and delayed group N comprised 11 cases not receiving bone graft. Mean Constant scores were significantly greater for the early fixation group (92+/-6.6; range, 64-98) than for both delayed groups N (86+/-7.8; range, 54-96) and B (81+/-9.4; range, 58-92) (P=.042 and .024, respectively). Mean pain score was 14+/-4.8 (range, 5-15) in the early fixation group, 12+/-7.4 (range, 5-15) in delayed group N, and 9+/-8.8 (range, 5-15) in delayed group B (P=.052 and .018, respectively). Mean daily activity score was also significantly greater in the early fixation group (19+/-6.4; range, 16-20) than in both delayed group N (14+/-6.2; range, 10-18) and delayed group B (10+/-4.4; range, 8-18) (P=.048 and .021, respectively). The P values for Constant, pain, and daily activity scores between delayed groups N and B were .048, .038, and .052, respectively. In cases of young patients with type IC acromion fractures at the time of injury, a high activity level, and the early need for crutches or a walker, early surgical treatment should be considered.
