Shoulder Instability clinical trials at UCSF

1 research study open to eligible people

Shoulder instability is when your shoulder joint moves too much. UCSF is studying this in a project where people who have had their first shoulder instability surgery are tracked over time. This helps us understand more about shoulder instability.

  • MOON Shoulder Instability-Cohort of Patients Undergoing Operative Treatment.

    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.
