There are a number of issues that can cause shoulder pain, including osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, fractures, rheumatoid arthritis or other inflammatory disorders, or osteonecrosis which impacts blood flow to the humerus.
Patients aged 80 years and older had low rates of perioperative mortality and reoperation after anatomic and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, according to results published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
Long periods of physical work involving positioning the arms over the shoulder and excessive load on the shoulders are common direct causes of shoulder pain.
Young Collision Athletes have High Rate of Return to Play and Good Clinical Outcomes Following Open Latarjet Procedure
The purpose of this study was to evaluate return to play (RTP), clinical outcomes and recurrence rates in collision athletes 20 years of age and younger who underwent open Latarjet for anterior shoulder instability.
Published results showed preoperative grip strength positively correlated with shoulder strength and function after reverse shoulder arthroplasty and may work as a prediction tool for outcomes in these patients.
