Disorders of the shoulder in which conservative management is indicated as a primary treatment include idiopathic frozen shoulder, atraumatic instability. acute calcific tendinitis , subacromial impingement syndrome, partial thickness or small full thickness tear of the rotator cuff, and chronic rotator cuff tear in elderly population. Aside from medication and various physical modalities used for relief of pain, the mainstay of orthopaedic rehabilitation consists of stretching of the tendons and capsulologamentous complex, and strengtnening of rotator cuff muscles as well as surrounding muscles. However, orthopaedic rehabilitation in chronically painful conditions of the shoulder differs in detail according to the specific diseases or injuries, And it is important to make the rehabilitation program that can be undertaken by the patients rather than adhering to a fixed schedule. Also the program should be changed as the condition of the patient improves or deteriorates. Nevertheless there are basic rules of stretching and strengthening , which should always be observed in applying orthopaedic rehabilitation treatment.

The shoulder is a complex area which makes it vulnerable to painful pathologic processes. Chronic shoulder pain has become more common recently due to increased use of computers and a ,generally more sedentary life style among most people . Trigger point injection and neural blockade are useful for the management of chronic shoulder pain which has not improved with conservative treatment. Published articles concerning trigger point injection or neural blockade for chronic shoulder pain were reviewed to evaluate promising methods. If we are careful to remain aware of the details and complications in addition to adhering to effective treatments, these should be good armamentarium for doctors enthusiastic about the management of chronic shoulder pain.

Although painful conditions of varying degrees of severity involving the soft tissues (i .e., muscles, tendons, ligaments, periosteum and peripheral nerves) occur frequently, their underlying pathogenesis is poorly understood. The term peripheral neuropathic pain has recently been suggested to embrace the combination of positive and negative symptoms in patients whose pain is due to pathological changes or dysfunction in peripheral nerves or nerve root. The spinal nerve root, because of its vulnerable position, is very easily prone to injury from pressure, stretch, angulation, and friction. Therefore, not a few of musculoskeletal chronic pains are result of nerve root dysfunction. Neuropathic changes due to nerve root dysfunction are primarily in soft tissue especially muscle, tendon and joint. It shows tenderness over muscle motor points and palpable muscle contracture bands and restricted Joint range. Careful palpation and physical examination is the important tool that, be abne to detect all of these phenomena.

Arthroscopy of the elbow is a very precise and demanding procedure due to the closeness of the recommended portals to neurovascular structures and complexity of articular geometry. So to establish safe portal is not always reproducible especially in case of stiff elbow, even for the experienced arthroscopist. We described new tip of elbow arthroscopy using a new starting portal. This procedure is almost always reproducible even in stiff elbow, and minimizes risk of damage to neurovascular structures.

Purpose: Unstable Neer type II lateral end fracture of clavicle may be required operation. The purpose of this study is the effectiveness of the use of Hook plate in the management of unstable Neer type II fractures. We preliminary reported the results of Unstable Neer type II lateral end fracture of clavicle using by Hook plate. Material and Methods: From May 1998 to May 2002, we operated 6 cases unstable Neer type II lateral end fracture of clavicle with Hook plate by one surgeon. We checked radiologic evaluation and disappearance of pain per 1 week, and evaluated improvement of range of motion per 2 week. And we followed up at each interval 3 months,6 months, 12 months and after that per 6months interval, at that each time we checked stress radiogram of shoulder and functional evaluation. The shoulder function was evaluated using Modified Shoulder Rating Scale (MSRC) for Distal Clavicle Fracture and UCLA score. Average follow up was on 37.2 (12∼57) months. Results: All 6 patients were regained satisfactory function. Average MSRC for distal clavicle fracture was 17.3 (15∼20) and average UCLA score was 33.2 (31∼35) at last follow up. Conclusion: There are many advantage of the use of Hook plate on management of unstable Neer II distal clavicle fracture in spite of several disadvantage. There have not yet been reported in our country. So we obtained good to excellent clinical result in surgical treatment of 6 cases on type II displaced lateral end fracture of the clavicle. But we think that more cases will be review and longer follow up will be needed in the future.

The Bennett lesion is an extraarticular ossification of the posteroinferior quadrant of the glenoid. The lesion may be a source of shoulder pain in throwing athletes. The Bennett lesion may be caused by traction on the posterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligamentous complex produced by posteroior subluxation during cocking, posterior subluxation during cocking, posterior decelerate forces during follow-through, or a combination of the two. Treatment is usually conservative and focused at the associated intraarticular abnormality and pathomechanics.

Objectives: To analyze the postoperative functional outcome of shoulder in patients with arthroscopically assisted repair of large to massive rotator cuff tears with or without acromioplasty and role of acromioplasty. Materials and Methods: From June 1996 to June 2002, twenty six patients with large to massive rotator cuff tears were undergone arthroscopically assisted repair. Mean follow up was over one year. Fourteen were male and twelve were female. Mean age was 51 years old(39-66). Mean duration was 9 months. Acromioplasty was done in 14 cases concomitantly. They were divided into two groups. Group I: arthroscopic cuff repair with acromioplasty(14 cases). Group II: arthroscopic cuff repair without acromioplasty(12 cases). Each shoulder was evaluated at preoperative and final follow-up with Visual Analogue Scale(VAS), University of Pennsylvania Patient self-assessment of pain, University of Pennsylvania Patient self-assessment of function, ASES standardized shoulder assessment form, Simple Shoulder Test, UCLA score and range of motion(ROM). We analyzed the differences between the two groups. Shoulder ROM and acromioplasty were determining factors. Statistics was tested by correlation analysis and repeated measure ANOVA test. Results: At the final follow up, functional outcome and pain were improved but they had no statistical significance between the two groups(p>0.05). Combined procedure, acromioplasty, didn`t affect on VAS. UCLA score, University of Pennsylvania Patient self-assessment of pain, University of Pennsylvania Patient self-assessment of function, ASf:S standardized shoulder assessment form and Simple Shoulder Test(p>0.05). In group II, forward flexion and abduction were statistically improved at the final follow up than in group I(p<0.05). Conclusions: It appears that arthroscopic repair is satisfactory procedure in patients with large to massive cuff tears. Combined procedure, acromioplasty, doesn`t affect on postoperative functional outcome of shoulder.

Clinics in Shoulder and Elbow, volume 6, issue 2, 2003, Pages 149~160
DOI : 10.5397/CiSE.2003.6.2.149
Purpose: to determine the results after open intramedullary nailing and tension band suture technique in proximal humerus fracture for improving the stability and decreasing the complications. Materials and Method: Authors reviewed 27 patients treated by open intramedullary nailing and tension band suture technique. Mean follow-up period was 39 months (24-59months). Surgical neck fracture were 6 cases, surgical neck fracture with shaft fracture were 3 cases, three part fracture with greater tuberosity fracture were 17 cases, four part fracture was 1 case and fracture and dislocation were 2 cases Results: We got the bony union in 26 cases. Average pain scale was 1 point (0-6), Neer score was 86 point(45-99) and ASES score was 85 point(40-100). We separate all cases in two groups based on age (65 years), L-spine t-score (-2.5) and Neer classification (2 and 3 part). There is no significance in pain scale, Neer score and ASES score between each group. Conclusion: As a method of surgical treatment on severe proximal humeral fractures, we recommend intramedullary nailing and tension band suture technique and it may have particular advantages in early exercise and satisfactory functional outcome.

Olecranon bursitis rarely Progresses to septic arthritis. In our case, the 24 year old woman was visited due to progressing right elbow pain, despite antibiotic treatment of chronic olecranon bursitis caused by elbow laceration 2 months ago. Pus draining sinus, localized heating and swelling could be seen on physical examination. Septic arthritis and pathologic fracture was diagnosed under arthroscopic examination. Arthroscopic irrigation and synovectomy for elbow joint, olecranon bursectomy and curettage of olecranon bone was done. In the operation field, the elbow and draining sinus over olecranon was communicated each other on saline irrigation test. The patient was treated for 3 weeks with intravenous antibiotics. At postoperative 4 weeks, bone graft was done. The possibility of chronic osteomyelitis and septic arthritis must be considered in a patient with chronic olecranon bursitis.

Superficial lipoma was easy to diagnose, but deep lipoma, especially intraosseus lipoma, was difficult to detect pre-operatively. Intraosseous lipoma is very rare and had been difficult to differentiate from other tumors before image diagnosis was developed. Recently, the detecting ratio has increased due to advanced diagnostic tools. Preoperative diagnosis is crucial for the treatment plan and influences the approach method for excision. We experienced one case of misdiagnosis which was diagnosed as intraosseous lipoma according to the preoperative MRI but turned out to be a parosteal lipoma after the surgery.

Synovial chondromatosis is a, relativly rare disease, moreover the shoulder joint is very rarely affected. The authors report two cases of synovial chondromatosis of the glenohuneral Joint and biceps tendon sheath that were managed by arthrclscopic loose body removal and partial synovectomy. Excellent subjective and objective results were obtained.
