Outpatient Total Shoulder Arthroplasty: A Population-Based Study Comparing Adverse Event and Readmission Rates to Inpatient Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

BACKGROUND: The rate of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is rising, which has an impact on health care expenditure. One avenue to mitigate cost is outpatient TSA. There are currently no published reports of this practice. [...]

Outcomes After Patch Use in Rotator Cuff Repair

Successful management of large or massive rotator cuff tears continues to present a clinical challenge. Because of the size and chronicity of tears, which contribute to poor soft-tissue quality, as well as advanced patient [...]

Revision Arthroscopic Repair Versus Latarjet Procedure in Patients With Recurrent Instability After Initial Repair Attempt: A Cost-Effectiveness Model

PURPOSE: To compare the cost-effectiveness of arthroscopic revision instability repair and Latarjet procedure in treating patients with recurrent instability after initial arthroscopic instability repair. METHODS: An expected-value decision analysis of revision arthroscopic instability repair compared [...]

Open Reduction Internal Fixation has Fewer Short-Term Complications Than Shoulder Arthroplasty for Proximal Humeral Fractures

BACKGROUND: Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), hemiarthroplasty (HA), and anatomic or reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA/RTSA) are surgical treatment options for proximal humeral fractures (PHFx). Little is known about comparative complication rates. We aimed [...]

The Champagne Toast Position Isolates the Supraspinatus Better Than the Jobe Test: An Electromyographic Study of Shoulder Physical Examination Tests

BACKGROUND: While Jobe's test is widely used, it does not isolate supraspinatus activity. Our purpose was to examine the electromyographic (EMG) activity within the supraspinatus and deltoid with resisted abduction to determine the shoulder position [...]
