Type 2 cysts often present with chronic massive rotator cuff tear
that may not be able to be addressed directly given its chronicity and extent.
The purpose of this study is to see if there is a discrepancy between the characterization of fatty infiltration in the setting of a large or massive rotator cuff tear
on sagittal and coronal images using the Goutallier classification.
The clinical results of massive rotator cuff tear
in selected patients are good and glenohumeral joint degeneration is slowed (Cofield et al 2001, Oh et al 2007).
This left-hand-dominant 50-year-old male (weight: 112 kg; height: 185 cm; BMI: 33kg/m) fell off of his porch on 31 August 2014 and sustained a massive rotator cuff tear
(both the supraspinatus and infraspinatus were torn).
(16) He reported using an intraarticular portion of the biceps tendon as a free graft to repair a chronic massive rotator cuff tear
. Later, in 1978, Nevaiser went on to report a technique and preliminary results of a chronic massive rotator cuff repair using freeze-dried rotator cuff allograft.
Rotator cuff tear arthropathy, as it was termed by Neer, was characterized by a massive rotator cuff tear
with superior humeral head migration and diminished acromiohumeral distance with "femoralization" of the tuberosities and "acetabularization" of the acromion.
Acromion-splitting approach through an os acromiale for repair of a massive rotator cuff tear
Arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tears
: Outcome and analysis of factors associated with healing failure or poor postoperative function.
Clinical and radiographic outcomes after arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tears
using a suture bridge technique: assessment of repair integrity on magnetic resonance imaging.
The study is a 184- patient randomized, single blinded control study that compares the company's Inspace biodegradable balloon system to conventional repair or partial repair for the treatment of full thickness massive rotator cuff tears
. While Inspace currently is commercially available outside of the United States and has been implanted in more than 5,000 patients in 15 countries, the trial will be the first time the device is implanted in the United States.
The results of randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews of interventions for rotator cuff pathology and shoulder pain suggest that exercise may be an effective treatment, [8-15] but there is a definite need for well-planned randomized controlled trials investigating the efficacy of exercise in the management of full thickness and massive rotator cuff tears
The association of suprascapular neuropathy with massive rotator cuff tears
: a preliminary report.
