Arthroscopic Ultrasound-Guided Needling: An Effective Technique for the Treatment of Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Aug 26;10(8):e2021-e2026. Epub 2021 Jul 26.

Groupe Orthopédie Ormeau Pyrénées, ELSAN - Polyclinique de l'Ormeau, Tarbes, France.

Calcifying tendinopathies of the rotator cuff that do not respond to conservative treatment may require arthroscopic removal. Intraoperative localization of calcifications can be difficult and is usually performed by bursal needle probing. We present a surgical technique combining arthroscopy and intraoperative ultrasonography based on the ultrasound-guided needle technique to precisely and rapidly locate even small calcium deposits.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy: an update.

EFORT Open Rev 2020 Oct 26;5(10):584-592. Epub 2020 Oct 26.

Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg, Salzburg, Austria.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a safe therapy and there are only a few side effects known (such as pain during ESWT and minor haematomata), but no severe complications are to be expected if it is performed as recommended.Contraindications are severe coagulopathy for high-energy ESWT, and ESWT with focus on the foetus or embryo and focus on severe infection.The effect mechanism of ESWT is still a component of diverse studies, but as far as we can summarize today, it is a similar process to a cascade triggered by mechano-transduction: mechanical energy causes changes in the cellular skeleton, which provokes a reaction of the cell core (for example release of mRNA) to influence diverse cell structures such as mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, intracellular vesicles, etc. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 May;98(21):e15552

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery, The First People's Hospital of Neijiang, Sichuan, China.

Background: Rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy (RCCT) is frequently diagnosed in patients with shoulder pain, but there is no consensus on its treatment such as rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, subacromial corticosteroid injection (SAI), extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), and ultrasound-guided percutaneous lavage (UGPL). The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of UGPL with other techniques in the treatment of RCCT.

Methods: Literature searches of PubMed, EMBASE, OVID, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Chinese Biomedical Literature, Wanfang, Weipu Journal, and CNKI databases were performed up to August 2018. Read More

Tenosynovitis With Psammomatous Calcifications: A Distinctive Trauma-Associated Subtype of Idiopathic Calcifying Tenosynovitis With a Predilection for the Distal extremities of Middle-Aged Women-A Report of 23 Cases.

Am J Surg Pathol 2019 02;43(2):261-267

Department of Pathology.

The term "idiopathic calcifying tenosynovitis" (ICT) refers to a clinically and radiologically defined syndrome of pain and tendinous calcifications, most often involving the shoulder joint. A distinctive subset of ICT cases, termed "tenosynovitis with psammomatous calcifications" (TPC), occurs in the distal extremities and shows characteristic morphology, in particular psammomatous calcifications. As only 14 cases have been reported to date, TPC remains poorly recognized by both pathologists and clinicians. Read More

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

Int Orthop 2019 05 29;43(5):1171-1177. 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.

J Sports Med Phys Fitness 2018 Jul-Aug;58(7-8):1090-1095. Epub 2017 Feb 22.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, China -

Calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder is characterized with the formation of the calcium deposits in tendon, which mostly involves supraspinatus. The formation of the calcium deposits may be related to the excessive mechanical stimulation and non-tenocytes generation from tendon stem cell. The disease is usually associated with pain, especially when activating the shoulder. Read More
