In addition, some issues related to the shoulder are discussed, such as the evaluation of rotator cuff tears, approaches for shoulder instability, subacromial impingement syndrome, superior labrum anterior posterior lesions, and frozen shoulder.
Diaphyseal clavicle fractures, distal clavicle fractures and acromioclavicular joint dislocation, scapular neck and body fractures, glenoid fractures, and other relevant issues are also discussed.
The penultimate chapter focuses on matters pertaining to the humerus, such as: the non-operative treatment of proximal humerus fractures, internal fixation in proximal humerus fractures, hemiarthroplasty in proximal humerus fractures, and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty in proximal humerus fractures.
In closing, using a phenomenological design, the researchers explore the experience of suffering as voiced by male and female patients six to twelve months after hospitalization for blunt trauma.
