Effects of a synovial fluid substitute on early recovery after arthroscopic subacromial decompression of the shoulder
The purpose of this pilot study was to determine whether the use of a synovial fluid substitute (Viscoseal) after arthroscopic subacromial decompression (ASD) of the shoulder was safe (primary outcome) and effective in reducing the postsurgical pain on the day of surgery and the time ...

Clinical assessment of posterior shoulder joint instability
Posterior shoulder instability is less common than anterior and is not as readily recognised. There are numerous clinical tests for posterior instability. They all have benefits and disadvantages, depending on the type of instability and strength of the patient. In this article we describe the most ...

The role of extrinsic factors in subacromial impingement syndrome
Subacromial impingement syndrome has been linked to a decrease in acromio-humeral distance. A relationship between pectoralis minor length and scapular upward rotation to the acromio-humeral distance has been theorised but not supported by evidence. Scapular position, pectoralis minor length and ...

Validation of a clinical test for subtle posterior instability of the shoulder
Injuries to the posterior labrum are less common and more difficult to diagnose compared to anterior labral pathology. This may be in part due to difficulties in preoperative diagnosis. Posterior labral injuries cause abnormal loading of the rotator cuff with subsequent weakness. Examination ...

Anterior dislocation of the shoulder in skeletally immature patients: comparison between non-operative treatment versus open Latarjet's procedure
The ideal treatment for traumatic anterior dislocation of the shoulder in the skeletally immature patient is controversial.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the outcomes after either conservative and/or surgical treatment using the Latarjet technique.
A retrospective series ...
