An unwelcome introduction to shoulder bursitis, a painful inflammation in the joint most often brought on by overuse or injury. The wear and tear of daily life can make this a chronic condition, too.
Efficacy and safety of monopolar versus bipolar radial head arthroplasty: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Radial head replacement is the main line of treating complex unstable elbow injuries. Based on polarity, radial head prostheses are either monopolar or bipolar. The difference between both designs in patients’ clinical outcomes and postoperative complications is not yet clear.
A discovery by a multi-institutional team of researchers and engineers about how tendon and bone attach in the shoulder joint has uncovered previously unsuspected engineering strategies for attaching dissimilar materials. The discovery also sheds new light on how the rotator cuff functions and on why rotator cuff repairs fail so frequently.
