Special Focus: Upper Extremity Rotation

We attempted to identify several articles spanning the areas of shoulder surgery that would be particularly relevant to those in training. We identified articles highly cited by peer-reviewed literature, still applicable to today’s practice, and well-written with good science. We focused on articles that were highly referenced during training, board examinations, and lectures, and separated them into the following categories: clavicular and proximal humeral fractures; the rotator cuff: instability, the labrum, and capsular disease; shoulder arthroplasty; and basic science and anatomy.
