161. AIUM Practice Parameter for the Performance of a Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Examination

-thickness tear, tendinosis, and/or calcification. Both long- and short-axis views should be obtained. To examine the subscapularis tendon, the elbow remains at the side while the arm is placed in external rotation. The subscapularis is imaged from the musculotendinous junction to the insertion on the lesser tuberosity of the humerus. Dynamic evaluation as the patient moves from internal to external rotation is helpful to evaluate dynamic biceps tendon subluxation or subcoracoid impingement and assess (...) the integrity of the subscapularis tendon. To examine the supraspinatus tendon, the arm is extended posteriorly, and the palmar aspect of the hand can be placed against the superior aspect of the iliac wing with the elbow flexed and directed toward the midline (instruct the patient to place the hand in the ipsilateral back pocket). To scan the supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons along their long axes, it is important to orient the transducer approximately 45° between the sagittal and coronal planes

(Validation status for oscillometric BP devices, including whether they are validated in the pediatric age group, can be checked at .)

For children in whom the appropriate cuff size is difficult to determine, the midarm circumference (measured as the midpoint between the acromion of the scapula and olecranon of the elbow, with the shoulder in a neutral position and the elbow flexed to 90° , , ) should be obtained for an accurate determination of the correct cuff size

and most shoulder fractures [4,5]. A standard set of shoulder radiographs for trauma should include at least three views: anterior-posterior (AP) views in internal and external rotation and an axillary or scapula-Y view. Axillary or scapula-Y views are vital in evaluating traumatic shoulder injuries as acromioclavicular and glenohumeral dislocations can be misclassified on AP views [6,7]. Radiographs provide good delineation of bony anatomy to assess for fracture and appropriate shoulder alignment (...) bony anatomy can result in underappreciation of the extent of proximal humeral fractures on radiographs. Poor agreement between observers has been shown on grading of humeral head fractures on radiographs [10]. CT is the best examination for delineating fracture patterns and has been shown to be equivocal to MRI in identifying nondisplaced fractures, making it the preferred study for characterizing proximal humeral fractures. Contrast is generally not necessary unless there is concern for arterial

Enhanced imaging using a subtraction technique (electronic subtraction of precontrast and postcontrast images) has been shown to be a useful technique in distinguishing hematoma and hemorrhagic sarcoma by identifying enhancing areas of tumor [3]. MRA MR angiography (MRA) can be a useful adjunct to assess vascular anatomy as well as lesion vascularity [3]. It is considered complementary to conventional MR imaging and, as such, is usually obtained concurrently. FDG-PET/CT

169. Shoulder arthroplasty to address the sequelae of anterior instability arthropathy and stabilization procedures: systematic review and meta-analysis. (Abstract)

searched using a combination of the following keywords: shoulder arthroplasty, reverse shoulder arthroplasty, dislocation arthropathy, capsulorrhaphy arthropathy and stabilization procedures.Thirteen studies with 365 patients met inclusion criteria. Since 13 patients were lost to follow-up, 352 were reviewed at an average follow-up of 53.4 months. The average Constant-Murley (CM) and American Shoulder and Elbow Society (ASES) scores improved from 35.6 and 35.7 to 72.7 and 77, respectively. The overall (...) as a consequence of the distorted anatomy and severe glenohumeral joint pathology. Complication and reoperation rates are higher compared to shoulder arthroplasty for primary glenohumeral joint arthritis; however, the difference is not statistically significant. When reverse shoulder arthroplasties (RSA) were considered as a subgroup and compared to anatomic shoulder replacements (total shoulders and hemiarthroplasties), they showed a lower revision rate.
