Special Issue "New Trends in Shoulder Surgery from Biomechanics to the Operating Room"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2021).
Interests: shoulder; acromionclavicular joint; shoulder kinematics; shoulder arthroplasty; reverse arthroplasty.
In the last two decades, we have witnessed a change in our understanding of shoulder diseases and in their treatment. Thanks to biomechanical studies, we now understand that the shoulder is a key junction in a kinetic chain that starts from the lower limb and ends in the hand. The use of new materials has enabled us to change the approach we use to tackle certain pathologies, allowing us to develop techniques that increasingly align with anatomy and enabling non-anatomical surgeries to be left to the area of revision. The degenerative pathology has seen the development of well over 30 different models of reverse prostheses based on a variety of biomechanical characteristics. The management of shoulder instability and rotator cuff lesions has significantly evolved in the last few decades due to the transition from open to arthroscopic techniques allowing for management of pathological entities that were previously untreatable. Moreover, the approach to shoulder pathology has increasingly become multidisciplinary. The actors are no longer limited to surgeons but also include anesthesiologists, radiologists, and rehabilitators.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
