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: Subacromial space (SS) narrowing may result in unsafe contact of rotator cuff tendons and bursa with the acromion, possibly promoting rotator cuff pathologies and pain. We measured SS in asymptomatic subjects after three movements employed for shoulder muscles' training. PARTICIPANTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Twenty-five males (age 24±5years; stature 175±8 cm; body mass 74±12 kg) underwent SS ultrasound evaluation while executing with (WL) and without (NL) 4-kg load: 90° shoulder abduction (SA) without humerus rotation (90°neutral); 90° SA maximal humeral external rotation (90°er); maximum SA (above 90°) during upright row (UR)...

INTRODUCTION: Many clinical anatomy studies have looked into how variations in the acromion, coracoacromial ligament (CAL) and subacromial space are associated with rotator cuff injuries. However, no study up to now had defined anatomically the fibro-osseous canal that confines the supraspinatus muscle in the subcoracoacromial space. Through an anatomical study of the scapula, we defined the bone-related parameters of this canal and its anatomical variations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study on dry bones involved 71 scapulas...

BACKGROUND: Pectoralis minor (PM) tightness has been linked to pain and dysfunction of the shoulder joint secondary to anterior tilt and internal rotation of the scapula, thus causing secondary impingement of the subacromial space. PURPOSE: To describe outcomes pertaining to nonoperative and operative treatment via surgical release of the PM tendon for pathologic PM tightness in an active population. STUDY DESIGN: Case series; Level of evidence, 4...

BACKGROUND: The ability of injection of corticosteroids into the subacromial space to relieve pain ascribed to rotator cuff tendinosis is debated. The number of patients who have an injection before one gets relief beyond what a placebo provides is uncertain. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We asked: (1) Do corticosteroid injections reduce pain in patients with rotator cuff tendinosis 3 months after injection, and if so, what is the number needed to treat (NNT)? (2) Are multiple injections better than one single injection with respect to pain reduction at 3 months? METHODS: We systematically searched seven electronic databases for randomized controlled trials of corticosteroid injection for rotator cuff tendinosis compared with a placebo injection...

BACKGROUND: MRI is the standard methodology in diagnosis of rotator cuff diseases. However, many patients continue to have pain despite treatment, and MRI of a static unloaded shoulder seems insufficient for best diagnosis and treatment. This study evaluated if Dynamic MRI provides novel kinematic data that can be used to improve the understanding, diagnosis and best treatment of rotator cuff diseases. METHODS: Dynamic MRI provided real-time 3D image series and was used to measure changes in the width of subacromial space, superior-inferior translation and anterior-posterior translation of the humeral head relative to the glenoid during active abduction...

BACKGROUND: Maintenance of the subacromial space is important in impingement syndromes. Research exploring the correlation between biomechanical factors and the subacromial space would be beneficial. OBJECTIVES: To establish if relationship exists between the independent variables of scapular rotation, shoulder internal rotation, shoulder external rotation, total arc of shoulder rotation, pectoralis minor length, thoracic curve, and shoulder activity level with the dependant variables: AHD in neutral, AHD in 60° arm abduction, and percentage reduction in AHD...

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the relationship between the size, degree of retraction and topography of rotator cuff injuries and the degree of rise of the humeral head, and to evaluate the influence of gravity, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: We evaluated 181 shoulder MRIs from 160 patients aged over 45 years, between November 2013 and July 2014. The patients were divided into two groups: one control (no lesion or partial damage to the rotator cuff); and the other with complete tears of the rotator cuff...

OBJECTIVE: The objective is to determine whether corticosteroid injection into the subacromial space was not inferior to intra-articular injection in patients with idiopathic frozen shoulder (FS), and whether combined injections had an additive effect. METHODS: Patients with idiopathic FS (n=126) were randomly assigned to receive ultrasound-guided intra-articular (IA group), subacromial (SA group), or combined IA and subacromial injections (IA+SA group). All groups received a total dose of 40mg triamcinolone acetonide...

CONTEXT: Alterations to upper extremity physical characteristics of competitive swimmers (posture, range of motion [ROM], and subacromial-space distance) are commonly attributed to cumulative training load during a swimmer's competitive career. However, this accepted clinical belief has not been established in the literature. It is important to understand whether alterations in posture and associated physical characteristics occur as a result of sport training or factors other than swimming participation to better understand injury risk and possible interventions...

Jong Pil Yoon, Yeon Soo Lee, Geun Soo Song, Joo Han Oh
PURPOSE: Acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation is a common sports injury. Hook plate fixation is currently widely used to treat this injury, as it can promote the natural healing of the ligament with good clinical outcomes. However, subacromial erosion and impingement are frequently observed post-operatively. It was hypothesized that the morphology and the contact characteristics between the hook portion and the acromion are the main causes of complications after hook plate fixation with the currently available commercial designs...

BACKGROUND: Circuit resistance training (CRT) should promote favorable kinematics (scapular posterior tilt, upward rotation, glenohumeral or scapular external rotation) to protect the shoulder from mechanical impingement following paraplegia. Understanding kinematics during CRT may provide a biomechanical rationale for exercise positions and exercise selection promoting healthy shoulders. OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this study were: (1) to determine whether altering hand position during CRT favorably modifies glenohumeral and scapular kinematics and (2) to compare 3-dimensional glenohumeral and scapular kinematics during CRT exercises...

BACKGROUND: Rates of shoulder pain in individuals who use manual wheelchairs (MWCs) as their primary means of mobility have been reported to be as high as 70% during activities of daily living. Current prevailing thought is that mechanical impingement of the soft tissues that reside within the subacromial space between the humeral head and coracoacromial arch is a major contributor to the shoulder pain in users of MWCs. The subacromial space size is directly related to the kinematics at the shoulder joint...

BACKGROUND: The high incidence of rotator cuff disease combined with high failure rates for nonoperative treatment of full-thickness rotator cuff tears underlines the importance of improving nonoperative management of rotator cuff tears. The study objective was to assess changes in in vivo glenohumeral kinematics of patients with a symptomatic full-thickness supraspinatus tear before and after a 12-week exercise therapy program. It was hypothesized that successful exercise therapy would result in improved kinematics (smaller translations and increased subacromial space)...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this investigation was to characterize the scapular position and scapular muscle activation during the empty can (EC) and full can (FC) exercises. The EC exercise has been shown to produce scapular kinematics associated with the mechanism leading to subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS) but has not been investigated in patients with (SAIS). This investigation will help improve the treatment of patients with SAIS. METHODS: Participants with SAIS (n = 28) performed 5 consecutive repetitions of FC and EC exercises...

BACKGROUND: Whereas synovitis is one of most common findings during arthroscopic surgery in patients with rotator cuff diseases, no study has investigated its characteristics. We propose a macroscopic assessment system for investigating the characteristics of synovitis. METHODS: Fifty-four patients with a full-thickness rotator cuff tear undergoing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with an average age of 62.5 ± 7.0 years were included. For the macroscopic assessment, 3 parameters, villous hypertrophy, hyperemia, and density, were measured and translated into grades in 3 regions-of-interest (ROI) in the glenohumeral joint and 4 ROIs in the subacromial space...

Superior humeral head translation and scapula reorientation can reduce the subacromial space. While these kinematic abnormalities exist in injured populations, the effect of muscle fatigue is unclear. Additionally, these mechanisms were typically studied independently, thereby neglecting potential covariance. This research evaluated the influence of upper extremity muscle fatigue on glenohumeral and scapulothoracic kinematics and defined their relationship. Radiography and motion tracking systems captured these kinematic relationships, during scapula plane elevation, both before and after fatigue...

PURPOSE: Particular bone and tissue morphological features of the scapula and humerus often exist disproportionately in persons with subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS) and/or rotator cuff pathology. However, the origins of morphological variation, genetic or mechanistic, remain unclear. This research evaluated the distribution of and correlation between several bone and tissue characteristics associated with these pathologies amongst a baseline cohort population consisting of young, healthy, males...

OBJECTIVE: To correlate the acromial curvature, using the angles proposed, with the subacromial space and types of acromion. METHODS: Ninety scapulas were studied. The acromia were classified as types I, II or III. The acromial curvature was analyzed by means of the alpha, beta and theta angles. We also measured the distance between the anteroinferior extremity of the acromion and the supraglenoid tubercle (DA). The scapulas were grouped in relation to sex and age...
