OBJECTIVES: To describe and compare the medium to long-term effectiveness of hydrodilatation and post-hydrodilatation physiotherapy in patients with primary and secondary glenohumeral joint contracture associated with rotator cuff pathology. METHODS: Patients with primary and secondary glenohumeral contractures associated with rotator cuff pathology were recruited into a 2-year study. They all underwent hydrodilatation, followed by a structured physiotherapy programme...

BACKGROUND: Hydrodilatation of the glenohumeral joint is by several authors reported to improve shoulder pain and range of motion for patients with adhesive capsulitis. Procedures described often involve the injection of corticosteroids, to which the reported treatment effects may be attributed. Any important contribution arising from the hydrodilatation procedure itself remains to be demonstrated. METHODS: In this randomized trial, a hydrodilatation procedure including corticosteroids was compared with the injection of corticosteroids without dilatation...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the elasticity of the coracohumeral ligament (CHL) in healthy individuals and patients with clinical findings suggestive of unilaterally involved adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder (ACS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The institutional review board approved this single-institution prospective study, which was performed between November 15, 2012, and July 8, 2014. Informed consent was obtained from all subjects. Measurement of CHL thickness was performed in the axial oblique plane under shoulder maximal external rotation...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the short-term effects and advantages of sono-guided capsular distension, compared with fluoroscopically guided capsular distension in adhesive capsulitis of shoulder. METHOD: In this prospective, randomized, and controlled trial, 23 patients (group A) were given an intra-articular injection of a mixture of 0.5% lidocaine (9 ml), contrast dye (10 ml), and triamcinolone (20 mg); they received the injection once every 2 weeks, for a total of 6 weeks, under sono-guidance...

BACKGROUND: Instruments designed to measure the subjective impact of painful shoulder conditions have become essential in shoulder research. The Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) is one of the most extensively used scales of this type. The objective of this study was to investigate reproducibility and responsiveness of the SPADI in patients with adhesive capsulitis. METHODS: SPADI test-retest reproducibility was estimated by the "intraclass correlation coefficient" (ICC) and the "smallest detectable difference" (SDD)...

Frozen shoulder is a common disease which causes significant morbidity. Despite over a hundred years of treating this condition the definition, diagnosis, pathology and most efficacious treatments are still largely unclear. This systematic review of current treatments for frozen shoulder reviews the evidence base behind physiotherapy, both oral and intra articular steroid, hydrodilatation, manipulation under anaesthesia and arthroscopic capsular release. Key areas in which future research could be directed are identified, in particular with regard to the increasing role of arthroscopic capsular release as a treatment...

OBJECTIVE: To describe and evaluate ultrasound-guided hydrodilatation via the rotator interval for the treatment of adhesive capsulitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients referred to our department with adhesive capsulitis were consented for hydrodilatation. Inclusion criteria included a failure to respond to conservative treatment and the absence of full thickness rotator cuff tear. Twenty-one milliliters of a mixture of local anesthetic and steroid was injected into the rotator interval using a 21-gauge needle...

AIM: Frozen shoulder is a common self-limiting regional skeletal problem of unclear pathogenesis. It usually has an insidious onset and follows a protracted course. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence and related risk factors for frozen shoulder in Shanghai, China. METHODS: We performed a hospital-based case-control study involving 182 patients with pathologically diagnosed frozen shoulder and 196 patients hospitalized during the same time period with non-shoulder related complaints who were recruited as controls...
