Tears of the rotator cuff are frequent. An estimated 250,000 to 500,000 repairs are performed annually in the United States. Rotator cuff repairs have been successful despite fatty infiltration and atrophy of the rotator cuff muscles. Although the emphasis in rotator cuff repair has historically focused on re-establishing the tendon attachment, there is growing interest in and understanding of the role of the superior capsule. The superior capsule is attached to the undersurface of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscle-tendon units, and it resists superior translation of the humeral head...

BACKGROUND: Subacromial impingement is a common condition among overhead athletes. The cause of subacromial impingement can be multifactorial and often involves impaired rotator cuff function. CASE DESCRIPTION: The following cases outline the presentation, examination and intervention of two overhead athletes, a high school football quarterback and a collegiate swimmer, each presenting with signs and symptoms of subacromial impingement. The unique feature in each case was the manifestation of the cervical spine as the apparent source of rotator cuff weakness, which contributed to functional subacromial impingement although other overt signs of cervical or associated nerve root involvement were absent...

OBJECTIVES: In this paper, we proposed an algorithm for recognizing a rotator cuff supraspinatus tendon tear using a texture analysis based on a histogram, gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM), and gray level run length matrix (GLRLM). METHODS: First, we applied a total of 57 features (5 first order descriptors, 40 GLCM features, and 12 GLRLM features) to each rotator cuff region of interest. Our results show that first order statistics (mean, skewness, entropy, energy, smoothness), GLCM (correlation, contrast, energy, entropy, difference entropy, homogeneity, maximum probability, sum average, sum entropy), and GLRLM features are helpful to distinguish a normal supraspinatus tendon and an abnormal supraspinatus tendon...

Knowledge regarding the likelihood of propagation of supraspinatus tears is important to allow an early identification of patients for whom a conservative treatment is more likely to fail, and consequently, to improve their clinical outcome. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential for propagation of posterior, central, and anterior full-thickness tears of different sizes using the finite element method. A three-dimensional finite element model of the supraspinatus tendon was generated from the Visible Human Project data...

Rotator cuff tears are a common shoulder pathology. The rat supraspinatus tendon model is commonly employed for preclinical assessment of rotator cuff pathology or regeneration. However, there is a lack of a standardized biomechanical testing protocol; previous studies have tested the tendon at abduction angles ranging from -15° to 90°. This study aimed to assess the effect of abduction/testing angle on the biomechanical properties of the rat supraspinatus tendon. Fourty-eight shoulders (n=12/group) from healthy Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to 4 testing angle groups: 0° (corresponding to 90° abduction), 30°, 60°, and 90° (0° abduction)...

CONTEXT: The supraspinatus muscle has an important role in the stabilization of the glenohumeral joint. Identifying abnormalities concerning its size and the subacromial space in the presence of pain may be relevant to provide more specific treatments focused on the etiology of pain. OBJECTIVE: to determinate whether painful shoulder causes changes in the supraspinatus cross-sectional area (CSA) and the acromio-humeral distance (AHD) between overhead athletes. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is effective in reducing shoulder pain and improving function in calcific supraspinatus tendinopathy. Eccentric exercise has been introduced as an effective treatment choice for Achilles tendinopathy, but poor evidence exists about its role in the treatment of rotator cuff tendinopathy. AIM: To investigate if adding a supervised eccentric training of the shoulder abductor muscles could improve the outcome of extracorporeal shock wave therapy...

This study introduced the new delto-fulcral triangle (DFT), the first anatomical model of its kind. As seen from the orthopaedician's supraspinatus-outlet view, the antero-superior point of the coracoid process along with the lateral- and posterior-most acromial landmarks form the boundaries of the DFT. Since these osseous scapular landmarks accounted for both dynamic and static stabilisers of the glenohumeral joint, knowledge of the anatomical features of the DFT may prove beneficial to the orthopaedic surgeon...
