Reverse arthroplasty rehab rachael daw nwulg new

 BEYOND EXPECTATIONS? W N Rachael Daw February 2014
  2. 2. AIM ! ! ! G L U To discuss current thinking on the potential functional outcome of Reverse Geometry Total Shoulder Arthroplasty W N To consider the implications of improved clinical outcomes for rehabilitation
  3. 3. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE ! G L U The first TSR, a salvage procedure for TB, was essentially a reverse geometry design! W N Jules Emile Pean ,1893. Neer’s Mark I reverse prosthesis
  4. 4. THE MODERN REVERSE TSR G L U “ The patient who has lost function doesn’t care about the design of the prosthesis that will be implanted but only about it’s effectiveness in the recovery of the lost function” W N Paul Grammont, 1985
  5. 5. SALVAGE PROCEDURE? G L U The Grammont design successfully achieves I. Improved stability II. Compensation for the absent cuff III. Reduced risk of mechanical failure ! Despite this still carries significant risks ! Boileau et al (2006), recommended that the reverse prosthesis must be considered a salvage procedure, limited to patients over 70. ! W N
  6. 6. EXPECTED OUTCOMES G L U From a recent literature review the average outcomes following primary RTSR are: Forward Flexion -122.5◦ Abduction - 117.6◦ Ext. Rotation - 32.1◦ Constant Score - 62 ! W N
  7. 7. OUR EXPERIENCE G L U FLEXION ACHIEVED W N % of patients ELECTIVE > 90◦ > 120◦ >150◦ 86 59 23 TRAUMA 90 55 15 TOTAL 88 57 19 17% of the total patient cohort < 70
  8. 8. REHAB CONSIDERATIONS G L U Increasing number of younger patients ! Increasingly active older patient population ! Increasing number of patients achieving greater ROM ! Is this going to increase physical demand on the prosthesis beyond Its capability? ! W N ! SHOULD WE BE WORRIED?
  9. 9. BIOMECHANICS ! ! ! ! G L U Mahfour et al (2005) found; RTSR experiences kinematic patterns and torque forces most similar to the normal shoulder (compared to anatomical TSR and cuff deficient shoulders). Scapula rotation contributed more greatly to overall elevation Subjects having had either type of TSR had smaller bearing surface forces than normal or cuff deficient shoulders. W N
  10. 10. BIOMECHANICS G L U Mahnic deToledo et al (2012) found; ! No significant differences between the scapulothoracic kinematics of anatomic or RTSR subjects. ! In general there was greater upward rotation of the scapula with loading in those with arthroplasty (opposite pattern to the normal shoulder) ! ROM analysed only up to 90◦ elevation. ! W N
  11. 11. QUESTIONS….. G L U Biomechanical research is insufficient and inconclusive. ! Can the modern prosthesis withstand conditions similar to the native shoulder in the long term? ! Does rehab make a difference to outcome? ! What should be the focus of rehab for the high performing patient? ! Limitations? ! W N ?
  12. 12. RECOMMENDED REHAB G L U Blacknall and Neumann (2011) ! Evaluation based rehab protocols should consider; ! Healing times, pathophysiology, anatomy and biomechanics ! Pre-morbid conditions ! Response to treatment ! PATIENTS ABILITIES ! W N
  13. 13. EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION G L U ‘Raison d’être’ for the procedure? ! FUNCTION, FUNCTION, FUNCTION! ! ↑ scapular rotation with elevation can ↑function, but failure to correct on lowering can cause ↑ prosthesis wear and notching ! Focus on quality and technique with maintenance of CONTROL throughout. ! Will control in greater ranges be sufficient to prevent excess wear? ! W N
  14. 14. REHAB RELATED RISKS G L U NOTCHING, ↑ with poor scapulothoracic control, (particularly on lowering) ! DISLOCATION, ↑ HBB, combined extension, IR and add. ! GLENOID COMPONENT LOOSENING, ↑ with lifting and weight-bearing through the upper limb ! ? Any risks associated with ↑ ROM ! W N
  15. 15. CASE STUDY G L U 65 year old , left RTSR for revision of failed hemiarthroplasty post # ! Early onset notching (grade II) noted at 2/12 ! Significant scapulothoracic hitching and reduced glenohumeral movement also noted at consultation ! Following specialist shoulder physiotherapy to address deltoid function and scapulothoracic control, ROM and QOM improved significantly ! No further progression of notching seen. ! W N
  16. 16. G L U JAN 2013 FEB 2013 W N AUGUST 2013
  17. 17. LIMITATIONS? G L U Golant et al (2012) ! Little literature on sports participation post TSR in general and no literature on sporting activity for RTSR in particular ! Survey of ASES: 36.1% allow high-load non-contact sports 72.2% allow low-load sports 17.9% allow contact sports 51.3% allow non-upper extremity sports ! W N
  18. 18. WHAT DO YOU THINK? W N G L U
  19. 19. CONCLUSION G L U More questions than answers! ! RESEARCH IS NEEDED; ! to investigate the biomechanical capabilities of the RTSR and ! to establish outcomes of younger pts and those who have performed better (eg ? earlier failure) ! But…….. ! W N
  20. 20. CONCLUSION G L U The potential number of patients in this group remains small ! Those wanting to achieve high level function is smaller still, so….. ! How much do we really need to worry? ! W N
