Pain and stiffness in your shoulder can make every activity, including sleep, difficult. Worsening shoulder pain, especially at night, could mean you have a frozen shoulder, says Dr. Christopher Camp, a Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeon.
Functional recovery in the surgical treatment of tennis elbow: side-to-side versus tendon-to-bone attachment using a knotless suture anchor, a randomized controlled trial
Lateral epicondylitis of the elbow sometimes does not respond to conservative treatment and requires surgical intervention. Many different surgical techniques have been described. The aim of this randomized study was to compare functional outcomes of open side-to-side suturing of the tendon with tendon-to-bone fixation with a knotless suture anchor.
The Effect of PRP Augmentation of Arthroscopic Repairs of Shoulder Rotator Cuff Tears on Postoperative Clinical Scores and Retear Rates: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The aim of this review and meta-analysis is to assess recent clinical trials concerning the combination of operative treatment of rotator cuff tears and the administration of PRP and its effect on clinical scores and postoperative retear rates. The trials were used to compare the combination of PRP treatment and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair to arthroscopy alone.
Clavicle fractures, or broken collarbones, are typically treated without surgery. There is some evidence, though, to suggest that clavicle fractures may heal faster and more predictably when surgical repair is done.
The arthroscopic Trillat procedure, a type of bone block procedure, can be a valuable treatment of recurrent anterior dislocations in older patients with chronic massive irreparable rotator cuff tears and conserved active shoulder motion, according to a new retrospective French study of 21 patients.
