Rotator cuff tear characteristics: how comparable are the pre-operative MRI findings with intra-operative measurements following debridement during arthroscopic repair?

Int Orthop 2018 Aug 29. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, School of Medicine, Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Purpose: Magnetic resonance (MRI) is a valuable imaging method which can detect pre-operative rotator cuff tear characteristics accurately. However, tendon degeneration almost always necessitates a certain amount of debridement during arthroscopic repair, which alters tear size and shape. The aim of this study is to question the accuracy of the pre-operative tear size and classification in MRI and its relation to the tear size and type of the debrided tendon during arthroscopic repair.

Are occupational repetitive movements of the upper arm associated with rotator cuff calcific tendinopathies?

Rheumatol Int 2015 Feb 8;35(2):273-80. Epub 2014 Jul 8.

Orthopaedic Department, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy,

Calcifying tendinopathy (CT) of the shoulder is a common painful disorder, although the etiology and pathogenesis remain largely unknown. Recent theories about the role of excessive mechanical load in the genesis of CT have been proposed. Driven by the interest for these new theories, we investigated the hypothesis of a relationship between work-related repetitive movements of the upper arm, considered a potential cause of shoulder overload, and the presence of shoulder CT.

Gremlin-2 is a BMP antagonist that is regulated by the circadian clock.

Sci Rep 2014 Jun 5;4:5183. Epub 2014 Jun 5.

1] Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, United Kingdom [2] Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, United Kingdom.

Tendons are prominent members of the family of fibrous connective tissues (FCTs), which collectively are the most abundant tissues in vertebrates and have crucial roles in transmitting mechanical force and linking organs. Tendon diseases are among the most common arthropathy disorders; thus knowledge of tendon gene regulation is essential for a complete understanding of FCT biology. Here we show autonomous circadian rhythms in mouse tendon and primary human tenocytes, controlled by an intrinsic molecular circadian clock. Read More

The "Hoover" (vacuum cleaner) technique for calcifying tendonitis deposits excision and removal of the calcific debris.

Int J Shoulder Surg 2012 Jul;6(3):97-8

Reading Shoulder Unit, Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, UK.

A new technical tip for the improvement of the arthroscopic treatment of symptomatic calcifying tendinitis is described. Arthroscopic excision of calcifying tendonitis may result with multiple minute calcific debris in the subacromial bursa, causing severe post operative pain due to chemical irritation of the bursa. We suggest the use of a bladeless shaver barrel as a "Hoover" (vacuum cleaner) for arthroscopic clearance of these miniature calcific debris from the subacromial space after resection of the major deposits.

Am J Sports Med 2012 Mar 8;40(3):657-61. Epub 2011 Dec 8.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Muenster, Muenster, Germany.

Background: Calcifying tendinitis is a common and painful disorder of the shoulder characterized by the presence of calcific deposits in the tendons of the rotator cuff. When nonoperative treatment over a prolonged period of time fails, surgical treatment should be considered. Midterm success rates are inconsistent, and the role of subacromial decompression is still unclear. Read More

Radiologia 2011 Jul-Aug;53(4):364-7. Epub 2011 May 6.

Servicio de Radiología, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, España.

Calcifying tendinosis is characterized by macroscopic deposits of hydroxyapatite within the tendon. Most cases involve the tendons of the rotator cuff, fundamentally the supraspinous tendon, and less frequently other tendons in practically any location. Cortical erosion with intraosseous migration of calcium deposits is rare. Read More

Does erroneous differentiation of tendon-derived stem cells contribute to the pathogenesis of calcifying tendinopathy?

Chin Med J (Engl) 2011 Feb;124(4):606-10

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Faculty of Medicine, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR, China.

Calcifying tendinopathy is a tendon disorder with calcium deposits in the mid-substance presented with chronic activity-related pain, tenderness, local edema and various degrees of incapacitation. Most of current treatments are neither effective nor evidence-based because its underlying pathogenesis is poorly understood and treatment is usually symptomatic. Understanding the pathogenesis of calcifying tendinopathy is essential for its effective evidence-based management. Read More

Tenosynovitis with psammomatous calcification: a poorly recognized pseudotumor related to repetitive tendinous injury.

Am J Surg Pathol 2010 Jun;34(6):892-5

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Tenosynovitis with psammomatous calcification, described in 1983 by Gravanis and Gaffney, is a distinctive clinicopathologic variant of "idiopathic calcifying tenosynovitis" or "calcific tendonitis." However, tenosynovitis with psammomatous calcification is poorly recognized by pathologists and for this reason has not been adopted widely as a distinct entity. We present the clinicopathologic features of 6 cases of tenosynovitis with psammomatous calcification. Read More

Department of Radiology, Hospital Son Llatzer, Calle Vista Alegre n degrees 23 1 degrees D, 07015, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Intratendinous deposits of hydroxyapatite crystals are very common, particularly in the rotator cuff. In rare cases, the calcium located in the thickness of the supraspinatus tendon can suffer intraosseous migration into the greater tuberosity. We present a case of this rare entity: a 28-year-old patient who attended with pain and functional weakness in the left shoulder. Read More
