Combined bursal aspiration and corticosteroid injection for rotator cuff tear patients unresponsive to conservative management: Case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Aug;99(34):e21759

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Yeungnam University Medical Center, Yeungnam University College of Medicine.

Rationale: Subacromial-subdeltoid (SASD) bursitis is characterized by bursal distension caused by fluid collection, commonly resulting from rotator cuff tears. Aspiration of the bursal fluid associated with rotator cuff tears tends to be overlooked. The effects of combined bursal aspiration and corticosteroid injection on full-thickness tears of the rotator cuff with SASD bursitis have not been previously reported. Read More

From the Department of Internal Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, and the Department of Medicine, Section of Infectious Diseases, Veterans Affairs Healthcare Systems of Connecticut, West Haven.

Objective: To determine whether there are differences in the outcomes of native joint septic arthritis (SA) in adults, based on medical versus surgical management.

Methods: A 10-year retrospective single-center study was conducted of patients admitted to a tertiary care hospital between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2015 with a diagnosis of SA to compare outcomes based on the management approach taken: medical (bedside closed-needle joint aspiration) versus surgical (arthrotomy/arthroscopy). Evaluated outcomes included joint recovery, time to recovery, length of stay, disposition to home versus rehabilitation unit, recurrence of SA in the same joint, and mortality. Read More

A comparison of arthrocentesis teaching tools: cadavers, synthetic joint models, and the relative utility of different educational modalities in improving trainees' comfort with procedures.

J Clin Rheumatol 2012 Jun;18(4):175-9

Division of Rheumatology, The Hospital for Special Surgery-Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Each year, rheumatology programs across the country teach incoming trainees the skill of arthrocentesis, but the relative effectiveness of various teaching techniques has not been assessed in a systematic way.

Objectives: We compared approaches to teaching arthrocentesis using cadavers versus anatomic models.

Methods: In a pilot study, new rheumatology fellows (n = 7) from 2 academic institutions were surveyed at 3 points during arthrocentesis training: (1) before assuming patient care; (2) after lecture with handouts, followed by practice either on cadavers (group A) or on synthetic joint models (group B); and (3) 6 weeks into fellowship.

Background: Arthrocentesis is an important skill for medical practitioners at all levels of training. Previous studies have indicated a low comfort level and performance of arthrocentesis among primary care physicians that could be improved with hands-on training.

Objectives: The objective of this study was to improve comfort with knee and shoulder arthrocentesis at all levels of medical training, including medical students, internal medicine residents, and rheumatology subspecialty residents, and in arthrocentesis of the elbow, wrist, and ankle for advanced subspecialty residents in rheumatology through the use of a formal workshop using simulators.

[Ultrasound-guided interventional procedures in the musculoskeletal system].

Radiologia 2010 Nov-Dec;52(6):525-33. Epub 2010 Oct 15.

Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital de Basurto, Bilbao, España.

Ultrasonography is the most appropriate tool for interventional procedures in the musculoskeletal system when the lesion is visible on ultrasonography. Procedures performed under ultrasonographic guidance include: taking biopsies; draining abscesses; bursitis; hematomas or muscle tears; treating cystic lesions; diagnostic or therapeutic arthrocentesis; injecting substances into joints or lesions; aspirating calcium deposits and extracting foreign bodies. Although some of these procedures are often carried out without imaging guidance, ultrasonographic guidance improves their efficacy. Read More

Ultrasound-guided therapeutic procedures in the musculoskeletal system.

Curr Probl Diagn Radiol 2008 Sep-Oct;37(5):203-18

Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital de Basurto, Bilbao, Spain.

Ultrasound allows the exploration of most of the musculoskeletal system, including lytic bone lesions. Its flexibility, availability, and low cost make it the best tool to guide interventional therapeutic procedures in any musculoskeletal system lesion visible on ultrasound. These techniques include drainages of abscesses, bursitis, hematomas or muscular strains, treatment of cystic lesions (ganglions, Baker's cysts), arthrocentesis, injection of substances in joints and soft tissues, and aspiration of calcific tendinitis.
