Surgery as treatment for a dislocated shoulder

Shoulder dislocation accounts for 50% of all major joint dislocations seen in clinics and emergency rooms.
The primary shoulder joint has the greatest range of motion than any joint in the body due to its ball-and-socket design. A network of muscles, tendons, and ligaments, in particular the rotator cuff (a ring of tendons that encircles the shoulder joint and the joint capsule), keep this joint, the glenohumeral joint, in place.

Choosing a new graft for ACL reconstruction: things to consider

A correct understanding of the knee’s anatomy is crucial when choosing the right type of graft for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction. ACL reconstruction relies heavily on the graft type. Statistics show that approximately 20% of teens suffering ACL reconstructions experience re-tears, and 80% develop arthritis after 15 or 20 years of surgery. The type of graft affects a patient’s success rate of the procedures and their recovery timeline.
