Dr. Chalmers was invited to speak at the 3rd Annual US Olympic Sports Medicine Symposium on rotator cuff tears and elbow ligament tears.
Dr. Chalmers was invited to help veterinarians with a polar bear with a broken arm at the Utah Hogle Zoo. He worked in collaboration with expert veterinary orthopaedic specialist surgeons, surgery went well and the polar bear is doing well.

Dr. Peter Chalmers, an orthopedic expert at University of Utah Health, told Cold it would have been very unlikely for a low-speed, rear-end car crash to cause a rotator cuff injury.
Humeral Bone Loss in Revision Total Shoulder Arthroplasty: the Proximal Humeral Arthroplasty Revision Osseous inSufficiency (PHAROS) Classification System
Humeral bone loss is commonly encountered during revision shoulder arthroplasty and anticipating humeral bone defects can help the revision surgeon make appropriate plans to achieve adequate fixation and stability. No validated classification system exists to characterize humeral bone loss in the setting of revision shoulder arthroplasty.
Patients who received interscalene brachial plexus block plus soft tissue infiltration with Exparel when undergoing primary shoulder arthroplasty used significantly more narcotics postoperatively and had no significant reduction in pain scores in the early postoperative period compared with patients who received interscalene brachial plexus block alone, according to results published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.
HEALING RATES AND FUNCTIONAL OUTCOMES AFTER TRIPLE-LOADED SINGLE-ROW VERSUS TRANSOSSEOUS-EQUIVALENT DOUBLE-ROW ROTATOR CUFF TENDON REPAIR
Although healing rates and outcomes of arthroscopic single-row rotator cuff repairs have been compared with double-row repairs, none have utilized triple-loaded anchors.
To compare healing and function after single-row repairs with triple-loaded anchors versus double-row repairs with a suture-bridge technique.
Trauma can fracture the scapular neck. Typically, a single plate along the lateral scapula border affixes the glenoid fragment to the scapula. This method is limited by difficulty in screw placement, frequent excessive soft tissue dissection, and risk for neurovascular injury. Substituting 2 smaller plates bridging the scapular neck mitigates these limitations, but no comparative mechanical data between techniques exists. Therefore, we compared the mechanical properties of two constructs securing a simulated scapular neck fracture.
