Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, occurs when inflammation and scar tissue invade the shoulder joint. It can start with inflammation of the joint that leads to scarring, or in some cases the scarring happens with little inflammation.
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty for rotator cuff tears with and without prior failed rotator cuff repair: A large-scale comparative analysis
Large-scale data assessing the effect of a prior failed rotator cuff repair (RCR) on the outcome of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is currently lacking. Therefore, this study aimed (1) to assess the course of patients undergoing RCR, specifically focusing on the need for conversion to RSA within two years, and (2) to compare outcomes following RSA performed for rotator cuff tears (RCTs) with and without prior RCR.
Shoulder tightness can slowly creep up with age, affecting your ability to get adequate sleep, lift grocery bags, scrub the bathtub, or push open heavy doors. Maintaining shoulder mobility usually doesn’t become a focus until these daily activities of living become impacted—or pain and stiffness get unbearable.
