*  rehabilitation | Exercises for Rotator Cuff
Rotator cuff tears are a fairly common cause of mild to severe shoulder pain. The chances of the shoulder rotator cuff getting damaged increases as a person ages. Mostly this issue is caused by tendon degeneration and not injury or trauma in most cases.. Surgeons don't always recommend surgery for a full thickness rotator cuff tear. At first, non-surgical treatment is tried. If the rotator cuff muscle refuses to respond to nonsurgical methods, or if the tear is caused due to muscular weakness, or loss of function, surgery is immediately recommended.. The trial of non-surgical management is considered appropriate, as there is no evidence that treating the tear with surgery ...

*  Fewer rotator cuff tears fifteen years after arthroscopic subacromial decompression
Shoulder pain is very common, affecting 14-21 % of the population at some time during their lifetime. The aims of this thesis were to improve the understanding of various aspects concerning the pathogenesis and treatment of subacromial pain and rotator cuff tears. Patients and healthy individuals were examined and compared in five studies:. Study I) Seventy patients were retrospectively examined, clinically and with ultrasound, 15 years after arthroscopic subacromial decompression. All patients had an intact rotator cuff at surgery. Ultrasound showed significantly fewer rotator cuff tears compared to the prevalence of asymptomatic tears reported in the literature for the same age group. This indicates that arthroscopic subacromial decompression might protect ...

*  Supraspinatus | Exercises for Rotator Cuff
A Supraspinatus rotator cuff tear is one of the most common injuries to the shoulder. This occurs especially during sports that involve shoulder rotation such as baseball, swimming, rowing and bowling. Pain doesn't always come from a Supraspinatus rotator cuff tear, at times it is from tendonitis due to inflammation of one of the tendons of the shoulders.. In addition to the Supraspinatus, other muscles of the rotator cuff include the Teres Minor, Subscapularis, and the Infraspinatus. Acute tears can be very painful and can occur easily. Falling with your hand outstretched is a common cause of an acute Supraspinatus rotator cuff tear as well as forceful pitching of a ...

*  THYROID HORMONES RECEPTORS ARE PRESENT AND EFFECTIVE ON HEALTHY AND RUPTURED ROTATOR CUFF TENDONS. A PRELIMINARY REPORT |...
Thyroid hormones (THs), T3 and T4, play an essential role in the development and metabolism of many tissues and organs, and have profound metabolic effects in adult life. Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) seem to be ubiquitous, but, to our knowledge, their presence in tenocytes has not been investigated. We therefore evaluated the expression pattern of TRs isoforms in three groups of patients: one with rotator cuff tendons tears and with thyroid diseases, one with rotator cuff tendons tears without thyroid diseases, and one with healthy rotator cuff tendons and no thyroid disease. In addition, we evaluated the action of THs on growth and apoptosis of primary tenocyte cultures. The α/β nuclear receptor isoforms are present in healthy and pathologic ...

*  Daniel E. Weingold, MD - Surgical Information - Shoulder Arthroscopy for Rotator Cuff Tendinitis or Impingement syndrome
Shoulder arthroscopy for rotator cuff tendinitis is a minimally invasive procedure to create more space for an inflamed rotator cuff. The surgeon makes several small incisions around the shoulder joint and inserts a narrow fiber optic scope (called an arthroscope) to examine the condition of the rotator cuff. Tiny instruments are used to remove the inflamed portion of the bursa (the lubricating sac between the rotator cuff and the bone on top of your shoulder), as well as other tissue and bone, and relieve pressure on the tendons. Arthroscopic treatment of rotator cuff tendinitis allows surgeons a full view of the shoulder without having to cut through nerves or muscles. ...

*  Value of ultrasonography in preoperative diagnosis of rotator cuff tears and postoperative follow-up. - Semantic Scholar
Four hundred and six patients presenting with shoulder pain underwent bilateral shoulder ultrasonography. Rotator cuff lesions were diagnosed in 197 patients. In 155 of the 308 patients who had additional arthrographic examinations, the arthrogram documented rotator cuff tears. Sixty-eight patients underwent surgery. There was good correlation between the ultrasonographic and arthrographic findings as well as the surgical results, with a sensitivity of 91% for each examination technique. Thirty-six postoperative patients were studied ultrasonographically; a minor to marked increase in rotator cuff echogenicity was demonstrated in them all. Its high predictive value makes ultrasonography the method of choice in diagnosing rotator ...

*  Results of Rotator Cuff Repair - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
There is a higher risk of rotator cuff tears following dislocation when the individual is greater than 40 years old. Rotator cuff tears after dislocation of the shoulder are more of a challenge to repair particularly if there is a delay in diagnosis. Clinical experience would suggest that rotator cuff repair within the first month of injury allows for better results in acute rotator cuff tears without shoulder dislocation. There are no reported results for rotator cuff repairs following shoulder dislocation and timing of repair. If we find that early repair provides better results this will be important for Primary Care ...

*  rotator cuff repair | Singapore Sports and Orthopaedic Clinic
Rotator cuff injuries can usually be successfully treated without the need for surgery. However, sometimes you may need to have an operation, for example to repair a tear in your rotator cuff or to remove calcium deposits.. Rotator cuff repair surgery is done under general anaesthesia. This means you will be asleep during the operation.. In general, there are two different procedures that may be used to repair a rotator cuff injury: open surgery and shoulder arthroscopy. The type of surgery you have will depend on where your injury is, and if it's a tear, how big it is and it's shape.. Open surgery means that your surgeon makes a cut in the skin over your shoulder and repairs your injury through the cut. In ...

*  Subacromial Decompression Versus Subacromial Bursectomy for Patients With Rotator Cuff Tendinosis - Full Text View -...
The most commonly performed surgical procedure to treat rotator cuff tendinosis, when no full-thickness tear exists, is subacromial decompression (acromioplasty). This procedure is based on the theory that primary acromial morphology, (an extrinsic cause), is the initiating factor leading to the dysfunction and eventual tearing of the rotator cuff.. Subacromial decompression involves surgical excision of the subacromial bursa, resection of the coracoacromial ligament, resection of the anteroinferior portion of the acromion, and resection of any osteophytes from the acromioclavicular joint that are thought to be contributing to impingement.. Several studies have indicated that the vast majority of partial-thickness tears are found on the articular surface of the rotator ...

Rotator cuff is the group of tendons in the shoulder joint providing support and enabling wider range of motion. Major injury to these tendons may result in tear of these tendons and the condition is called as rotator cuff tear. It is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain in middle aged adults and older individuals. It may occur with repeated use of arm for over head activities, while playing sports or during motor accidents. Rotator cuff tear causes severe pain, weakness of the arm, and crackling sensation on moving shoulder in certain positions. There may be stiffness, swelling, loss of movements, and tenderness in the front of the shoulder.. Rotator cuff tear is ...
