Early reactions after reimplantation of the tendon of supraspinatus into bone. A study in rabbits. (1/50)

In 14 rabbits we determined the origin of the cells effecting healing of the tendon of supraspinatus inserted into a bony trough. After two weeks both the cellularity of the underlying bone and the thickness of the subacromial bursa were significantly increased in the operated compared with the control shoulders. The cellularity of the stump of the tendon, however, was significantly decreased in the operated shoulders. In this model, both the underlying bone and the subacromial bursa but not the stump of the tendon contributed to the process of repair. We conclude that the medial stump should be debrided judiciously but that cutting back to bleeding tissue is not necessary during repair of the rotator cuff. Moreover, great care should be taken to preserve the subacromial bursa since it seems to play an important role in the healing process.  (+info)

Coracoacromial arch decompression in rotator cuff surgery. (2/50)

In rotator cuff surgery it is important to obtain adequate decompression of the coracoacromial arch. However, it is difficult to localize the impingement site preoperatively. Based on histological and morphological studies and the clinical findings in 45 patients and 15 cadavers, we have tried to determine the impingement site. In addition, as a part of these investigations, we assessed the clinical outcome for 100 patients. Soft tissue decompression was indicated in 12 shoulders, anterior acromioplasty in 67 and anterior acromioplasty with coracoplasty in 21. According to Neer's criteria there were 92 satisfactory and 8 unsatisfactory results. The mean postoperative UCLA score was 33.4 points and the results were rated excellent in 78, good in 18 and fair in 4.  (+info)

Immunolocalization of cytokines and growth factors in subacromial bursa of rotator cuff tear patients. (3/50)

Inflammation in the subacromial bursa causes pain in patients suffering from rotator cuff tear, with this long-lasting inflammation leading to fibrosis and thickening of the subacromial bursa. Both inflammatory cytokines and mechanical stress, and impingement in the subacromial space, might induce and worsen this inflammation. However, little is known of the mechanism of this inflammation. In this study, we used immunohistological staining to demonstrate the expression of Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta), Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta), and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in subacromial bursa derived from the patients suffering from rotator cuff tear. On the other hand the expression of these inflammatory cytokines and growth factors were little detected only to a small degree in patients with anterior shoulder instability who did not have severe shoulder pain and impingement in the subacromial space. Our findings suggest that those inflammatory cytokines and growth factors may play an important role in inflammation of the subacromial bursa. Controlling the expression of these cytokines and growth factors might be important for treating patients suffering from shoulder pain due to rotator cuff tear.  (+info)

Modified and classic acromioplasty for impingement of the shoulder. (4/50)

We compared the results of modified and classic anterior acromioplasty in order to identify the significance of the resected acromion. Fifty patients with shoulder impingement syndrome resistant to conservative therapy underwent surgical treatment. We treated 30 patients with classic Neer acromioplasty (group 1), and 20 patients with modified Neer acromioplasty (group 2). The patients were assessed according to pain and shoulder movement. Excellent or good results were achieved in 28/30 patients in group I and 19/20 patients in group 2. The results indicate that both surgical techniques are effective procedures in the treatment of shoulder impingement syndrome, and the type of bone resection does not influence the clinical outcome.  (+info)

Os acromiale associated with tear of the rotator cuff treated operatively. Review of 33 patients. (5/50)

Os acromiale is a rare anatomical abnormality and treatment is controversial. Our retrospective study analyses the outcome of excision, acromioplasty and bony fusion of the os acromiale when it is associated with a tear of the rotator cuff. After a mean follow-up of 41 months, 33 patients were radiologically and clinically assessed using the Constant score. The surgical procedure was to repair the rotator cuff together with excision of the os acromiale in six patients, acromioplasty in five, and fusion in 22. Of the 22 attempted fusions seven failed radiologically. The Constant scores were 82%, 81%, 81% and 84% for patients who had excision, acromioplasty, successful fusion and unsuccessful fusion respectively. There were no statistically significant differences. We conclude that a small mobile os acromiale can be resected, a large stable os acromiale treated by acromioplasty and a large unstable os acromiale by fusion to the acromion. Even without radiological fusion the clinical outcome can be good.  (+info)

Local pressures in the subacromial space. (6/50)

We recorded pressures in the subacromial space with various degrees of humeral abduction. The recordings were made during open surgery and under general anaesthesia using a 2-mm-thick piezo-electric pressure transducer. The pressures were recorded in 14 patients with shoulder impingement syndrome (Neer's stage II) and in eight patients with acromioclavicular dislocation serving as controls. The pressures were higher in the impingement group than in the control group. In both groups the highest pressures were recorded antero-laterally under acromion. In patients with impingement syndrome, the pressures increased significantly with abduction.  (+info)

Arthroscopic subacromial decompression. (7/50)

A study group composed of 11 shoulders in 10 patients underwent arthroscopic subacromial decompression for impingement syndrome. There were no biceps tendon ruptures, acromioclavicular arthritis or glenohumeral instability. Eight men and two women ranging in age from 17 to 65 years (mean age 38.7) with dominant arm involvement in 9/10 were evaluated for an average follow-up of 19.4 months (range 12-26) postoperatively. Based on the University of California at Los Angeles shoulder rating scale, nine (82%) shoulders had satisfactory results and the remaining two (18%) had unsatisfactory results. This is a preliminary report of our early experience in this rather new method of treatment, but the results are encouragingly good.  (+info)

In vivo leptin expression in cartilage and bone cells of growing rats and adult humans. (8/50)

The present investigation was carried out to analyse, immunohistochemically, in vivo leptin expression in cartilage and bone cells, the latter restricted to the elements of the osteogenic system (stromal cells, osteoblasts, osteocytes, bone lining cells). Observations were performed on the first lumbar vertebra, tibia and femur of four rats and on the humerus, femur and acromion of four patients. Histological sections of paraffin-embedded bone samples were immunostained using antibody to leptin. The results showed that, in growing rat bone, leptin is expressed in chondrocytes and stromal cells, but not in osteoblasts; bone lining cells were not found in the microscopic fields examined. In adult human bone, leptin is expressed in chondrocytes, stromal cells and bone lining cells; osteoblasts were not found in the microscopic fields examined. Osteocytes were found to be leptin positive only occasionally and focally in both rat and human bone. The in vivo findings reported show, for the first time, that leptin appears to be expressed only in the cells of the osteogenic lineage (stromal cells, bone lining cells, osteocytes) that, with respect to osteoblasts, are permanent and inactive, i.e. in those cells that according to our terminology constitute the bone basic cellular system (BBCS). Because the BBCS seems to be primarily involved in sensing and integrating mechanical strains and biochemical factors and then in triggering and driving bone formation and/or bone resorption, it appears that leptin seems to be mainly involved in modulating the initial phases of bone modelling and remodelling processes.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been proposed to augment tendon healing through improving tissue structure during the initial repair phase. PURPOSE: To investigate both the clinical and tissue effects of the coapplication of PRP injection with arthroscopic acromioplasty (AA) in patients with chronic rotator cuff tendinopathy. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1. METHODS: The study comprised 60 randomized patients diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinopathy (55% women) aged between 35 and 75 years. Patients were randomized to AA alone or in combination with an injection of autologous PRP into the subacromial bursa (AA + PRP). Efficacy of treatment was assessed by analysis of patient-reported outcomes up to 2 years after treatment (Oxford Shoulder Score [OSS]) and by analysis of tendon biopsy specimens taken 12 weeks after treatment. RESULTS: There was no significant difference in the OSS between AA alone and AA + PRP at any time point in the study. From 12 weeks onward,

It is attached, by its apex, to the summit of the acromion just in front of the articular surface for the clavicle; and by its broad base to the whole length of the lateral border of the coracoid process. This ligament, together with the coracoid process and the acromion, forms a vault for the protection of the head of the humerus. It is in relation, above, with the clavicle and under surface of the deltoid muscle; below, with the tendon of the supraspinatus, a bursa being interposed. Its lateral border is continuous with a dense lamina that passes beneath the deltoid upon the tendons of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. The ligament is sometimes described as consisting of two marginal bands and a thinner intervening portion, the two bands being attached respectively to the apex and the base of the coracoid process, and joining together at the acromion. When the pectoralis minor is inserted, as occasionally is the case, into the capsule of the shoulder-joint instead of into the coracoid ...
Young baseball pitchers who throw more than 100 pitches per week are at risk for a newly identified overuse injury that can impede normal shoulder development and lead to additional problems, including rotator cuff tears, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology.. The injury, termed acromial apophysiolysis by the researchers, is characterized by incomplete fusion and tenderness at the acromion. The acromion, which forms the bone at the top or roof of the shoulder, typically develops from four individual bones into one bone during the teenage years.. We kept seeing this injury over and over again in young athletes who come to the hospital at the end of the baseball season with shoulder pain and edema at the acromion on MRI, but no other imaging findings, said Johannes B. Roedl, M.D., a radiologist in the musculoskeletal division at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.. To investigate the unexplained pain, Dr. Roedl and a team of researchers conducted a ...
An os acromiale must be mentioned in the report, because in patients who are considered for subacromial decompression, the removal of the acromion distal to the synchondrosis may further destabilize the synchondrosis and allow for even greater mobility of the os acromiale after surgery and worsening of the impingement (4).

Os acromiale (OA) results from a failure of consolidation between the ossification centers of the acromial epiphysis. Its prevalence and its interactions with ancestry, gender, laterality, and side have been variously reported in the literature. The aims of this review are to provide an accurate estimate of OA prevalence and to investigate its association with other variables in an attempt to comprehend its etiology. Twenty‐three studies met the inclusion criteria. The results of meta‐analyses of large‐sample studies revealed: (a) a crude overall prevalence of 7.0%, (b) a crude cadaveric prevalence of 7.6%, (c) a crude archeological (skeletal) prevalence of 5.6%, (d) a crude radiological prevalence of 4.2%, (e) a true anatomical prevalence of 9.6%, (f) a significantly higher frequency in persons of black ancestry than in persons of white, Native American and Middle Eastern ancestries (OR ≈ 3), (g) significantly higher unilateral and bilateral frequencies in black ancestry (OR of 2 and 4, ...
Does your shoulder hurt when reaching high up into a cupboard, with your overhead swing or while you sleep? You might have an impingement syndrome. Luckily many of these injuries can be treated before leading to worse injuries such as muscle tears or bursitis. The shoulder complex is made up of numerous bony structures (the shoulder blade (acromion), collar bone and humerus), as well as soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons and ligaments). The bony structures must be positioned correctly to maintain an appropriate amount of space between them, which will prevent friction of the soft tissue structures when performing movements with the arm. The soft tissue structures must also be strong enough and flexible enough to control the movements of the bony structures as we perform our day to day activities. In some cases, the natural shape of the acromion can be hooked, which would cause pinching as well. The soft tissue structures that are most often affected are the bursa, a fluid filled sac, and ...

A resection arthroplasty involves the surgical removal of the last 0.5 in (1.3 cm) of the collarbone. This removal leaves a space between the acromion and the cut end of the collarbone where the AC joint used to be. The joint is replaced by scar tissue, which allows movement to occur, but prevents the rubbing of the bone ends. The end result of the surgery is that the flexible connection between the acromion and the collarbone is restored. The procedure is usually performed by making a small 2 in (5 cm) incision in the skin over the AC joint. In some cases, the surgery can be done arthroscopically. In this approach, the surgeon uses an endoscope to look through a small hole into the shoulder joint. The endoscope is an instrument of the size of a pen, consisting of a tube fitted with a light and a miniature video camera, which transmits an image of the joint interior to a television monitor. The surgeon proceeds to remove the segment of collarbone through a small incision with little disruption ...

Physical therapist-supervised rehabilitation with strengthening exercises of the rotator cuff and scapula stabilizers seems to be superior to home exercises focusing on mobility for improving shoulder function after arthroscopic acromioplasty, say authors of an article published online in Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine. Thirty-six participants entered this randomized, single-blinded, clinically controlled study; 13 of the participants in the physical therapy group and 16 in the home group fulfilled all the assessments. For 12 weeks following surgery, participants performed either supervised physical therapy or home exercises. Follow-ups were conducted periodically for 6 months after surgery to evaluate shoulder function, pain (Constant-Murley [CM]), and disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand ([DASH] scores), and health-related quality of life.. The physical therapy group exhibited significantly greater improvements in CM and DASH scores. After treatment, the between-group mean ...

Originally designated to the genus Kenyapithecus, E. africanus was a large and sexually dimorphic hominoid. Equatorius possesses a suite of primitive and derived anatomical traits. According to Ward, et al., Primitive postcranial features attributed to E. africanus (which are shared with both Proconsul and Afropithecus) include a relatively broad and flat sternum, a posteriorly oriented and flattened humeral head, and position of the zygapophyses provided for a long and flexible vertebral column. All three genera show the same dental formations as well: low crowned mandibular canines with medially converging roots, a mandibular molar size sequence of M1 , M2 ,M3, and a U shaped dental arcade. Derived anatomical features are centered around the formation of the shoulder and elbow joints. According to Hartwig, The scapula is short along the vertebral border, when compared to the length of the axillary border, and the acromion process projects beyond the glenoid region. The clavicle is very ...

I think this depends on how severe your condition is. I was first diagnosed when I was 16. My orthopaedic doc at the time told me to hold off as long as I could if I could bear the pain because it was a very extensive surgery and involved a lot of healing time. I finally had a bone graft with screws and wires done when I was 18 to repair (Im 34 now). I played a lot of sports and had really bad pain, to a point where I could barely move my arm. When I got this done, it was the longest recovery from surgery that Ive ever had (I should also mention that by the time I got this done I had 4 knee surgeries). I was unable to drive for a month - drs orders, but it was also painful to move my arm to turn the wheel. I couldnt wear a bra or wash my hair and had trouble performing simple daily tasks. Your doctor should have explained the recovery and risks if (s)he suggested surgery. Best of luck to you!. ...

This series of medical illustrations shows arthroscopic subacromial decompression shoulder surgery to repair tendinitis and inflammation of the left shoulder AC joint, secondary to a potential rotator cuff ligament tear. The images show an acromioplasty procedure with the surgeon removing bone spurs that irritate and fray the tendons of the rotator cuff muscle (supraspinatus).
BACKGROUND: Arthroscopic sub-acromial decompression (decompressing the sub-acromial space by removing bone spurs and soft tissue arthroscopically) is a common surgery for subacromial shoulder pain, but its effectiveness is uncertain. We did a study to assess its effectiveness and to investigate the mechanism for surgical decompression. METHODS: We did a multicentre, randomised, pragmatic, parallel group, placebo-controlled, three-group trial at 32 hospitals in the UK with 51 surgeons. Participants were patients who had subacromial pain for at least 3 months with intact rotator cuff tendons, were eligible for arthroscopic surgery, and had previously completed a non-operative management programme that included exercise therapy and at least one steroid injection. Exclusion criteria included a full-thickness torn rotator cuff. We randomly assigned participants (1:1:1) to arthroscopic subacromial decompression, investigational arthroscopy only, or no treatment (attendance of one reassessment appointment with

Here are definitions of medical terms related to rotator cuff injury.Acromion: A portion of the shoulder blade (scapula) that overhangs the rotator cuff and humerus (upper arm bone).Acromioplasty: An operation in which the surgeon removes bone spurs and other abnormalities and widens the space between the rotator cuff and the acromion, or shoulder blade. Also called impingement surgery or subacromial decompression.
Authors results and conclusions: - There was no clinically relevant difference between subacromial decompression surgery and conservative treatment for pain, function and health-related quality of life at one year follow-up. We have medium to low confidence in the result. - There was no difference in effect between subacromial decompression surgery and placebo surgery for pain, function and health-related quality of life at one year follow-up. We have high to medium confidence in the result. - Complications were rare and evenly distributed between the groups. No serious complications were recorded. - Subacromial decompression surgery is the most costly treatment alternative at about 37,000 Norwegian krone (NOK). Conservative treatment with physiotherapy alone and injections cost respectively about 13,600 and 13,200 NOK. - There is a substantial potential for cost savings in the treatment of patients with pure subacromial shoulder impingement. Potential cost savings per health region depends on ...
Shoulder pain is a VERY common problem, especially among individuals over 40 years old. Experts estimate that between 16-30% of the population has experienced shoulder pain in the last month, with subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) being one of most likely diagnoses made by clinicians.. Why is SIS so common? The short answer is because the ball and socket part of the shoulder joint is shallow to allows for a wide range of motion but at a cost of reduced stability. Factors that can increase ones risk for SIS include increasing age, overhead work, repetitive microtrauma, hypoxia (lack of oxygen), type III acromion shape (a hooked-shaped roof over the ball and socket joint), spurs off the acromioclavicular joint and/or front part of the acromion (the roof of the joint), and ligaments becoming calcified.. These risk factors can cause wear-and-tear of the rotator cuff muscle tendon, which can lead to a muscle tendon rupture (partial or complete) over time. In turn, this results in a high ...
This medical exhibit diagram depicts a full-thickness tear injury of the right supraspinatus muscle tendon, one of the rotator cuff tendons, or SIT group. Subsequent medical illustrations show surgical repairs of the torn muscle tendon. After an incision is made in the region of the injury, the supraspinatus muscle tendon is trimmed and reattached to the humerus. Afterward, an acromioplasty (surgical removal of the acromion process) is performed to relieve pressure on the muscle belly.

The rotator cuff is the network of muscles and tendons that forms a covering around the top of the upper arm bone (humerus). The rotator cuff holds the humerus in place in the shoulder joint and enables the arm to rotate.. Rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. Most tears occur in the supraspinatus muscle, but other parts of the cuff may be involved.. WHAT IS SHOULDER IMPINGEMENT?. The most common cause of rotator cuff problems is a disorder known as impingement where the cuff impinges against the acromion, which overhangs the rotator cuff. In some people, this space is inadequate to allow the normal smooth gliding movements of the rotator cuff as it moves the arm. Every ...
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles surrounding the shoulder. They are made up of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, sub-scapularis and teres minor muscles. While these muscles are small and not that powerful, they play a critical role in how the shoulder moves. Without your rotator cuff, you would not be able to lift your arm very far from your side. The job of the rotator cuff is to guide the direction of the humerus head down and spin so that it clears the bony shelf above the socket called the acromion. When the rotator cuff is weak, the head of the humerus rides up slamming into the acromion above it.. The rotator cuff takes a lot of abuse over a lifetime and tearing is very common as we age. Many factors can lead to injury to the rotator cuff such as sports injuries, falls onto the shoulder or arm, repeat lifting or movements, poor posture or heavy lifting in abnormal positions.. Rotator cuff tears can be minor, causing pain and inflammation, or major which can require surgery. With ...

Impingement syndrome in the shoulder has generally been considered to be a clinical condition of mechanical origin. However, anomalies exist between the pathology in the subacromial space and the degree of pain experienced. These may be explained by variations in the processing of nociceptive inputs between different patients. We investigated the evidence for augmented pain transmission (central sensitisation) in patients with impingement, and the relationship between pre-operative central sensitisation and the outcomes following arthroscopic subacromial decompression. We recruited 17 patients with unilateral impingement of the shoulder and 17 age- and gender-matched controls, all of whom underwent quantitative sensory testing to detect thresholds for mechanical stimuli, distinctions between sharp and blunt punctate stimuli, and heat pain. Additionally Oxford shoulder scores to assess pain and function, and PainDETECT questionnaires to identify neuropathic and referred symptoms were completed.
206. Case 34.-An engineer, working with a crane, was struck on the left shoulder by a falling steel beam. Roentgenologic examination an hour later showed a linear fracture of the acromion process without displacement, avulsion of the coracoid process, and acromioclavicular separation. The plaster abduction splint of Key and Conwell was considered more practical in this case, because of the swelling and ecchymosis over the dorsum of the shoulder, than a splint which required the pressure of a shoulder strap to be effective. The dorsal section of the cast was removed at the end of 2 weeks, and massage and biceps-setting exercises were ordered. The remainder of the cast was removed 4 weeks later, and limited exercises were undertaken. At 8 weeks, use of the shoulder wheel was begun. Roentgenologic examination at this time showed union of the coracoid process and the scapula, with complete healing of the fracture of the acromion process. When the man returned to duty 12 weeks after the accident, he ...
The scapulacoracoid of extant turtles is a triradiate element consisting of the dorsal and acromion processes of the scapula and of the coracoid [31]. The dorsal process and the acromion process articulate dorsally and ventrally, respectively, along ligaments with the nuchal and the plastron and the scapulacoracoid can rotate along a vertical axis defined by these two flexible articulations. The entire shoulder girdle is therefore able to pivot along a vertical axis, allowing turtles to achieve greater stride length [35], a feature that is likely advantageous for any shelled organism.. The vertical orientation of the dorsal process in front of the ribcage was long believed to be a unique apomorphy of turtles, but a recent study demonstrates that this arrangement is universally found among basal amniotes [10]. Along those lines, a vertically oriented dorsal process is found in the potential stem turtle Eunotosaurus africanus[10], in the unambiguous stem turtle Odontochelys semitestacea[29], in ...
The trapezius muscle is a large, triangular, superficial muscle. It attaches proximally in the medial third of the superior nuchal line, external occipital protuberance, nuchal ligament, and spinous processes of the C7-T12 vertebrae. Distal attachment of the trapezius occurs at the lateral third of the clavicle and acromion and spine of the scapula. The action of the muscle includes neck extension and stabilization of the scapula and support for the arm. The muscle fibers proximal to the inflection point of the neck (ie, necklace line) run vertically and are involved with neck extension. According to the PREEMPT injection paradigm, one injection of 5 units of onabotulinumtoxinA to each of three sites on either side of the trapezius, for a total of 30 units divided across six sites, is given. The first injection site can be identified by visually dividing the upper portion of the trapezius muscle in half, from the inflection point of the neck (ie the necklace line) to the acromion ...
Shoulder pain and disability are common clinical problems. One major cause is subacromial inflammation and impingement of the supraspinatus tendon. These patients are usually offered conservative treatment or arthroscopic subacromial decompression (ASD). However, in some patients pain and a deficient shoulder function persist in spite of conservative and surgical treatment. This reflects the fact that the pathophysiology of this important disease is not fully understood. The general aim of the present thesis was to generate new lmowledge contributing to the understanding of subacromial inflammation through a combination of clinical and experimental studies.. Ketoprofen is a non-steroid antiinflammatory drug with effects on peripherally as well as centrally generated pain. In a randomized, double-blind, prospective study on impingement patients treated with ASD, postoperative administration of ketoprofen showed short-term, but not long-term positive effects on pain, range of movement and ...

The gleno-humeral (shoulder) joint will be inspected first followed by the subacromial bursa and the rotator cuff. A soft tissue shaving device will be used to clear any scar tissue away. A bone-shaving device will be used to shape the underside of the acromion (the bone at the top of the shoulder) and remove any excess bone.. The edges of the cuff tear are tidied with the soft tissue shaver. The top of the glenoid (socket) and the greater tuberosity (where the cuff normally attaches to the humerus or arm bone) are prepared. Stitches are attached to the bone using small screw type anchors. These stitches are passed through a specially prepared graft which is made of either porcine (pig) or human tissue.. The graft is introduced into the shoulder and the stitches are tied down securing the graft between the socket and the arm. This reproduces some of the function of the native rotator cuff.. ...
Subacromial Bursitis is a swelling of the subacromial bursa, a fluid-filled sac that creates a cushion between the acromion and the head of the humerus.
The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles and their tendons that attach from the shoulder blade (scapula) into the bone of the upper arm (humerus). The role of these muscles is to stabilize the shoulder through movement.. These muscles can become irritated or torn - usually due to chronic wear and tear associated with repetitive actions over a long period of time. At other times a fall onto an out stretched arm may cause an acute rotator cuff tear. The supraspinatus is the most common tendon involved with both chronic and acute tears.. Most tears are partial tears that can be managed conservatively. A complete full thickness tear in a young person may require surgery, but in an older person surgical repair is often not recommended.. The supraspinatus sits just under the tip of the shoulder (acromion). If the tendon becomes inflamed, such as in a tendonitis, it can become impinged as the shoulder moves. Typically pain is most obvious when the arm is in the mid-range outward position, but then ...
Tendonitis of your shoulder is an inflammation of your rotator cuff or biceps tendon. Your rotator cuff consists of the muscles and tendons in your shoulder. They connect your upper arm bone to your shoulder blade.. Your injury may range from mild inflammation to severe inflammation of most of your rotator cuff. When your rotator cuff tendon becomes inflamed and thickened, it is also called rotator cuff tendonitis. Your rotator cuff tendon may get trapped under the roof, or highest point, of your shoulder. This is called your acromion. It is formed by a part of your shoulder blade, called your scapula.. ...
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the accuracy of Ultrasound (US), conventional X-Ray (CX) and Computed Tomography (CT) to estimate the total count, localization, morphology and consistency of Calcium deposits (CDs) in the rotator cuff. US, CX and CT imaging was performed pre-operatively in 151 patients who underwent arthroscopic removal of CDs in the rotator cuff. In all procedures: (1) total CD counts were determined, (2) the CDs appearance in each image modality was correlated to the intraoperative consistency and (3) CDs were localized in their relation to the acromion using US, CX and CT. Using US158 CDs, using CT 188 CDs and using CX 164 CDs were identified. Reliable localization of the CDs was possible with all used diagnostic modalities. CT revealed 49% of the CDs to be septated, out of which 85% were uni- and 15% multiseptated. CX was not suitable for prediction of CDs consistency. US reliably predicted viscous-solid CDs consistency only when presenting with full sound

Young baseball pitchers who threw more than 100 pitches weekly were found to be at a heightened risk for acromial apophysiolysis, according to recently published data. “We believe that as a result of overuse, edema develops and the acromion bone does not fuse normally,” study author Johannes B. Roedl, MD, said in a press release.

The scapula is a large, flat, triangular bone with three prominent projections. The flattened triangular portion spans from the second to the seventh rib and consists of three borders (superior, lateral, and medial) and three angles (superior, inferior, and lateral). Its lateral angle is conspicuous as it forms the glenoid fossa for articulation with the head of the humerus. Its three prominent projections are the anteriorly facing coracoid process, the posterior ridge termed the spine, and the flat laterally projecting acromion that forms the lateral expansion of the spine. The plate-like body of the scapula is often so thin that it is translucent. (The program includes both true and false views of the scapula. The true views represent those views of the scapula as it would appear when viewed in its articulated position in the body. The false views represent an idealized views of its four surfaces ...

We learn that over a two-year follow up, treatment with physiotherapy…
Flat bones provide protection to vital organs. As the name suggests, they are mostly flat and curved, having a thin plate-like formation. They contain a layer of spongy bone covered by a thin layer of compact bone. Some flat bones contain irregular structures. For example, the scapula bone is a flat bone, but it contains a spine, acromion, and coracoid process that make it appear somewhat irregular.. There are 36 flat bones in the adult skeleton, including some skull bones, as well as the sternum and ribs:. Flat Skull Bones:. ...

0371] The landmark lines of a panel consists of y-axis (the vertical up line) and x-axis (horizontal line) which are orthogonal to each other. When the longitude is Front/Back/Left/Right, the landmark lines come on the front/back/left/right plane of the panel positioning box. The origin, x and y axes of the landmark lines are determined as follows: In the panels for Torso and Left/Right-Torso, y axis indicates the projection of the torso center line onto the front plan of the box and x axis indicates the waist line. (The two axes must form a right-handed 2D frame.) For Legs, y and x axes indicate the (projection of) midway line between the two legs and the waist line, respectively. For Left/Right-Leg, y and x axes indicate the (projection of) leg center line and the waist line, respectively. For Left/Right-Arm, the landmark lines indicate the (projection of) arm center line at the Acromion (top of the shoulder) level. For Head and Left/Right-Head, the landmark lines indicate the (projection of) ...
