Dislocated Shoulder clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
When your arm bone pops out of its socket in your shoulder, it's called a dislocated shoulder. UCSF is looking for participants in a study about surgery to fix this problem. The study will follow patients in multiple hospitals over time. If you're having surgery for shoulder instability, you might be eligible to join this study.
open to eligible people ages 12-99
This project will be a multi-center, prospective longitudinal cohort for all patients undergoing primary shoulder instability surgery, excluding isolated SLAP repairs. We will be looking for risk factors for recurrent instability, revision surgery, and poor outcomes. Patients will be asked to complete the RAND-36, ASES, Shoulder Activity, EQ-5D and WOSI outcome measures, as well as demographic and socioeconomic information. Surgeons will complete a form after surgery with information on radiographic findings, physical exam, surgical findings, and the repair. Patients will wear a sling post-operatively, and follow standardized rehabilitation protocols, including physical therapy. Patients will be sent outcome questionnaires at 2, 6, 10, and 20 years after surgery.
