OBJECTIVE: This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided (USG) versus blind (landmark-guided, LMG) corticosteroid subacromial-subdeltoid bursa injection in adults with shoulder pain. METHODS: The searches were performed on PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid EMBASE, Ovid CochraneCENTRAL, Web of Science, Google Scholar, and Scopus from database inception through March 27, 2015. Studies were included trials comparing USG versus LSG injections for the treatment of adults with subacromial-subdeltoid bursitis...

Ultrasound is an established modality for shoulder evaluation, being accurate, low cost and radiation free. Different pathological conditions can be diagnosed using ultrasound and can be treated using ultrasound guidance, such as degenerative, traumatic or inflammatory diseases. Subacromial-subdeltoid bursitis is the most common finding on ultrasound evaluation for painful shoulder. Therapeutic injections of corticosteroids are helpful to reduce inflammation and pain. Calcific tendinopathy of rotator cuff affects up to 20% of painful shoulders...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to assess the frequencies of ultrasound findings in patients with acute rotator cuff disorders in family medicine. METHODS: In a prospective observational study, 129 patients aged 18 to 65 years with acute shoulder pain in whom the family physician suspected rotator cuff disease underwent ultrasound imaging. RESULTS: Rotator cuff disease was present in 81% of the patients, and 50% of them had multiple disorders...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the accuracy and efficacy of ultrasound (US)-guided injections versus landmark-guided injections of the subacromial space, biceps tendon sheath, acromioclavicular (AC) joint and glenohumeral (GH) joint. METHODS: PubMed, Medline and Cochrane libraries were searched up to 31 July 2013. Two independent authors selected and evaluated randomised controlled trials comparing the accuracy and/or efficacy of US versus landmark-guided injection of the shoulder girdle...

BACKGROUND: Different diagnostic imaging modalities, such as ultrasonography (US), MRI, MR arthrography (MRA) are commonly used for the characterisation of rotator cuff (RC) disorders. Since the most recent systematic reviews on medical imaging, multiple diagnostic studies have been published, most using more advanced technological characteristics. The first objective was to perform a meta-analysis on the diagnostic accuracy of medical imaging for characterisation of RC disorders. Since US is used at the point of care in environments such as sports medicine, a secondary analysis assessed accuracy by radiologists and non-radiologists...
