Findings regarding pathologic wear patterns in glenohumeral osteoarthritis may ultimately impact treatment decision-making, surgical timing and type of shoulder arthroplasty chosen, and maximize clinical outcomes and implant longevity.
This image-based case shows how 3-tesla MRI can increase diagnostic certainty through more thorough evaluation of intra-articular structures. In this case, that led to success with conservative shoulder pain management.
As part of Cleveland Clinic’s initiative to develop care paths for specific conditions, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is creating one to reduce variability in care for full-thickness rotator cuff tears.
