A simple method of shoulder arthrodesis

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/80-B/4/620.pdf

Anew technique of shoulder fusion is presented using a posterior approach. After removal of the articular cartilage, a Rush pin is introduced from the spine of the scapula, through the glenoid into the medullary canal of the humerus. This is supplemented by tension-band wiring from the acromion to the neck of the humerus and a muscle...

Arthrodesis of the shoulder after septic arthritis

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/85-B/5/666.pdf

We analysed the long-term results of arthrodesis of the shoulder after infection in 15 patients. At the time of operation, 14 cultures were positive for Staphylococcus aureus. The mean follow-up was 8.3 years (3 to 14) and 90% of the patients were satisfied with the outcome.
The complication rate was higher in patients with active sepsis but...

Arthrodesis of the shoulder in rheumatoid arthritis

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/61-B/2/155

Forty-one arthrodeses of the shoulder in thirty-nine patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (thirty women, nine men) have been reviewed. Using internal fixation and external splints the position of the shoulder was maintained in 55 degrees of abduction, 25 degrees of horizontal flexion and enough internal rotation to allow the patient to reach the...

Long-term outcome of shoulder arthrodesis performed with plate fixation

Location: http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/section?content=a790014155&fulltext=713240928

There have been few reports on the long-term function after shoulder arthrodesis. We report the outcome after shoulder arthrodesis with plate fixation in 18 patients who were followed for 3-15 years.
Interpretation In this patient series there were few complications after shoulder arthrodesis, and the longterm functional results were acceptable....

Management of sequalae of neglected septic shoulder

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2739484/

Outcome of Osteoarticular Allograft Reconstruction and Shoulder Arthrodesis Following Resection of Primary Tumours of the Proximal Humerus

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov:80/pmc/articles/PMC2395401/

The purpose of this study was to compare the oncologic, reconstructive and functional outcomes of patients who underwent osteoarticular allograft reconstruction with those who underwent arthrodesis for a primary malignant bone tumour of the proximal humerus.
Discussion. In this study, there was a trend towards improved function following arthrodesis compared to...

Shoulder arthrodesis using an external fixator

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/73-B/1/180

The major problem with arthrodesis of the shoulder has been a high incidence of nonunion and the need for prolonged external splintage. The development of interna! fixation with the dynamic compression plate has resulted in a union rate of 100%. However, patients who are thin have poor subcutaneous tissue and...

Suprascapular nerve entrapment in an arthrodesed shoulder

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/74-B/3/470

Suprascapular nerve entrapment is rarely considered as a cause of shoulder pain. We report relief of pain in an arthrodesed shoulder by decompression of the nerve. Case report. An epileptic man in his 20s developed painful post-traumatic arthritis after delayed diagnosis of a posterior dislocation of his left shoulder. Four years later he had a successful...
