- Indication, Technique and Long-term Results after Shoulder Arthrodesis Performed with Plate Fixation. [Journal Article]
- ZOZ Orthop Unfall 2018; 156(1):53-61
- CONCLUSIONS: Plate arthrodesis in the technique used achieves high fusion and a low complication rate. Relief of pain and functional improvement are astonishing. Analysis of our results indicates that correction of the positions mentioned above is necessary: i. o. arthrodesis position for abduction 25° (by means of pre-bending plate of 105°), forward flexion 20° and internal rotation 30° are suggested.
- Health and Work in Women and Men in the Welding and Electrical Trades: How Do They Differ? [Journal Article]
- AWAnn Work Expo Health 2018 Feb 17
- CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report on these four cohorts and demonstrates the capacity for detailed analysis of the differences in exposure and new-onset occupationally related ill-health. While women and men in the same trades appear to be doing broadly similar work, and to have similar patterns on health at the first follow-up, there are some significant differences in the types of employment and variety of tasks. The very detailed information collected will allow more precise estimates of exposures to be correlated with health outcomes at the end of the follow-up period.
- Estimating the Minimal Important Difference for the Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index (WORC) in adults with shoulder pain associated with partial-thickness rotator cuff tears. [Journal Article]
- MSMusculoskelet Sci Pract 2018 Feb 12; 35:30-33
- CONCLUSIONS: This is the first published MID estimate for the WORC in adults with symptomatic PTTs of the rotator cuff undergoing typical treatment comprising conservative treatment with physiotherapy. The conceptual framework for interpretation facilitates its use in similar clinical contexts.

Shoulder arthroplasties in specialized centers are routine procedures with an increasing number of operations in the developed countries. Restoration of pain free shoulder function requires an intensive, specific and individual rehabilitation program for each patient. There is a phase-like course with different specific demands and measures that extends over a period of several weeks. Return to sport and a pain free function for activities of daily living resulting in a high patient satisfaction can routinely be expected. This excellent perspective, extent and intensity of the rehabilitation program shall be part of the preoperative decision making.
- Primary Shoulder Hemiarthroplasty: What Can Be Learned From 359 Cases That Were Surgically Revised? [Journal Article]
- COClin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Feb 21
- CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that some revisions of primary hemiarthroplasties may be avoided by surgical techniques directed at centering the prosthetic humeral articular surface on the glenoid concavity using proper humeral component positioning and soft tissue balance, by avoiding valgus positioning of the humeral component, and by managing glenoid disorders with a primary glenohumeral arthroplasty rather than a hemiarthroplasty alone. When durable security of the subscapularis, rotator cuff, and tuberosities is in question, the surgeon may consider a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

- Subacromial Local Anesthetics Do Not Interfere With Rotator Cuff Healing After Arthroscopic Repair. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Sports Med 2018 Feb 01; :363546517753827
- CONCLUSIONS: Current data suggest that myotoxicity of subacromial ropivacaine administered via pain pump may be reversible or may not be so severe as to interfere with tendon healing and cause muscle degeneration and thus may not affect postoperative function.
- Quality of life outcome measures using University of Washington questionnaire version 4 in early T1/T2 anterior tongue cancers with and without radiotherapy: A cross-sectional study. [Journal Article]
- IJIndian J Cancer 2017 Apr-Jun; 54(2):447-452
- CONCLUSIONS: Although locoregional control and disease-free survival are the major treatment-related endpoints for cancer management, QOL outcome measures have to assess to determine the impact of a treatment modality on patients well-being and for better rehabilitation of cancer-free patients.

- Radiation-Induced Painful Neurogenic Hypertrophy Treated With Botulinum Toxin A. [Journal Article]

Painful neurogenic hypertrophy is a rare complication of radiation therapy. We report a 27-year-old woman with a history of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the submandibular gland presented with painful twitching of her left shoulder. Electrodiagnostic studies were consistent with a diagnosis of radiation-induced spinal accessory nerve hyperactivity. The patient failed conventional medical therapy. She was treated with an injection of botulinum toxin A, and within 1 month experienced significant relief of symptoms. We thus conclude that Botulinum toxin is a therapeutic option for the pain associated with radiation-induced peripheral nerve hyperactivity.
