Subacromial decompression

William B Stetson, J Alex McIntyre, Genevieve R Mazza
The surgical technique for the management of a symptomatic os acromiale remains unclear. Several operative techniques have been described including open excision, open reduction-internal fixation (ORIF), arthroscopic acromioplasty or subacromial decompression, and arthroscopic excision. There are 4 types of os acromiale, with the meso-acromion being the most common and difficult to treat. The excision of a pre-acromion arthroscopically or in an open manner usually produces satisfactory results. However, the open excision of a meso-acromion can lead to persistent pain and deltoid weakness and atrophy...

OBJECTIVE: To compare two surgical techniques to address the painful shoulder syndrome with partial or total supraspinous tendon tear. METHODS: Patients with a diagnosis of complete supraspinous tendon tear who required surgical repair and subacromial decompression. One group was treated with acromioplasty and tendon plasty using an open approach (G1), and the second one underwent arthroscopy with tendon plasty using a minimally-invasive approach (G2). The surgical approach was not decided at random, but was based on the surgeons preference...

BACKGROUND: Increasing rates of surgery for rotator cuff disease have been reported in the past decade in a number of countries worldwide. Rising surgery rates do not correspond with equivalent increases in shoulder pain prevalence. The aims of the study were: to investigate trends in population-adjusted surgical rates for rotator cuff disease in Western Australia (WA) from 2001 to 2013; to compare population-adjusted arthroscopic surgical trends between (i) private versus public hospital setting; (ii) sex and (iii) different age groups; and to evaluate rising health care costs associated with arthroscopic surgical rates for rotator cuff disease...

PURPOSE: To describe a spinoglenoid cyst decompression technique through a subacromial approach and its clinical outcomes after 2 years of follow-up. METHODS: From March 2008 to October 2013, 26 patients underwent arthroscopic decompression of a spinoglenoid ganglion cyst with and/or without superior labral anterior to posterior repair, and patients who were available for minimum of 2 years of follow-up were included. For functional assessments, the visual analog scale (VAS) pain score, subjective shoulder value (SSV), University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) shoulder score, American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon (ASES) score, and shoulder active range of motion were used to compare preoperative and postoperative follow-up values...

BACKGROUND: partial-thickness rotator cuff tears frequently enlarge due to increased local strain and often progress to full-thickness tears. Studies suggest the addition of new tendinous tissue to injured cuff tendons would significantly decrease peak strain, possibly protecting against tear progression. The aim of this study was to assess the ability of a highly-porous collagen implant to induce new tissue formation and limit tear progression when placed on the bursal surface of partial-thickness cuff tears...

INTRODUCTION: The expected duration of incapacity after arthroscopic shoulder surgery is an important factor for therapy planning. The aim of this study was to analyze the duration of sick leave after arthroscopic shoulder surgery in Germany and to identify factors associated with a longer duration of sick leave. We hypothesized that certain patient-related factors may be associated with a longer duration of sick leave. METHODS: Routine health care data of all patients insured by one German health insurance company who underwent inpatient arthroscopic shoulder surgery between 2010 and 2012 were included in the analysis of the duration of sick leave in this retrospective cohort study (level III evidence)...

BACKGROUND: Subacromial impingement is common and frequently treated with arthroscopic subacromial decompression (ASD); however, its efficacy has recently been questioned. Poor surgical outcomes have been associated with anxiety and depression within other orthopedic subspecialties but not within this group of patients. We hypothesized that anxiety and depression are associated with worse outcomes after ASD. METHODS: A retrospective review of prospectively collected data was carried out of patients undergoing ASD...
