Isolated bursal-side infraspinatus tear diagnosed by computed tomography bursography: a case series.

J Med Case Rep 2022 Jun 17;16(1):240. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Radiology, Tonan Hospital, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background: Partial-thickness rotator cuff tears are commonly found in the articular-side tendon of the supraspinatus; however, isolated lesions, except those occurring in the supraspinatus tendons, are rare. We report three cases of isolated bursal-side infraspinatus tears that were difficult to detect by magnetic resonance imaging but could be visualized by computed tomography bursography.

Critical shoulder angle and failure of conservative treatment in patients with atraumatic full thickness rotator cuff tears.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Jun 10;23(1):561. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, School of Medicine, Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, Santiago, Chile.

Background: Atraumatic full thickness rotator cuff tears (AFTRCT) are common lesions whose incidence increases with age. Physical therapy is an effective conservative treatment in these patients with a reported success rate near 85% within 12 weeks of treatment. The critical shoulder angle (CSA) is a radiographic metric that relates the glenoid inclination with the lateral extension of the acromion in the coronal plane. Read More

Intramuscular Innervation of the Supraspinatus Muscle Assessed Using Sihler's Staining: Potential Application in Myofascial Pain Syndrome.

Toxins (Basel) 2022 04 28;14(5). Epub 2022 Apr 28.

BK21 FOUR Project, Division in Anatomy and Developmental Biology, Department of Oral Biology, Human Identification Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Dentistry, Seoul 03722, Korea.

Despite the positive effects of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) injection into the neural arborized area, there is no anatomical evidence in the literature regarding the neural arborization of the supraspinatus muscle. The present study aimed to define the intramuscular neural arborized pattern of the supraspinatus muscle using the modified Sihler's staining method to facilitate the establishment of safe and effective injection sites in patients with myofascial pain in the supraspinatus muscle. Seventeen supraspinatus muscles from 15 embalmed cadavers were dissected. Read More

Obesity and Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty.

Curr Rev Musculoskelet Med 2022 Jun 5;15(3):180-186. Epub 2022 May 5.

Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, 111 17th Ave E, Ste 101, Alexandria, MN, 56308, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Rates of obesity and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) in the USA have both escalated with time. Obese patients experience arthritis at higher rates than normal weight patients; therefore, these numbers go hand in hand. Obesity has been correlated with health comorbidities such as anxiety, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome as well as poorer outcomes and higher complication rates following lower extremity arthroplasty.

Group-based exercice training programs for military members presenting musculoskeletal disorders - protocol for a pragmatic randomized controlled trial.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Apr 18;23(1):366. Epub 2022 Apr 18.

Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation and Social Integration (Cirris), Québec, Canada.

Background: Musculoskeletal disorders are a leading cause of morbidity and the most prevalent source of disability among soldiers. Their high prevalence in armed forces and limited ressources have led to problems related to access to physical rehabilitation care. To increase access, supervised group-based exercise programs for the most prevalent musculoskeletal disorders (low back pain, patellofemoral pain, rotator cuff-related shoulder pain or lateral ankle sprain) have been developed at a Canadian Armed forces (CAF) base, but their effectiveness has not been evaluated.

Supraspinatus tendon thickness and subacromial impingement characteristics in younger and older adults.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Mar 11;23(1):234. Epub 2022 Mar 11.

Department of Physical Therapy, Chitose Rehabilitation College, Chitose, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background: Subacromial impingement (SAI) may be a cause of age-related rotator cuff abnormalities; therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare SAI characteristics between younger and older adults. In addition to the fact that thickened supraspinatus tendon (SST) indicates tendon abnormalities, SAI characteristics have been recognized as follows: greater SST thickness, reduced acromiohumeral distance (AHD), greater reduction of AHD (∆AHD) with arm elevation, and a higher percentage of SST within AHD (i.e. Read More

Using biofeedback to optimize scapular muscle activation ratios during a seated resisted scaption exercise.

J Electromyogr Kinesiol 2022 Apr 26;63:102647. Epub 2022 Feb 26.

Department of Physical Therapy and Athletic Training, Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Boston University, Boston, MA, United States.

Impairments in muscle activation have been linked to increased risk of developing shoulder pathologies such as subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) and associated rotator cuff injuries. Individuals with SIS have demonstrated increased upper trapezius (UT) muscle activation and reduced serratus anterior (SA) and lower trapezius (LT) muscle activation, which can be collectively represented as ratios (UT/SA and UT/LT). Targeted exercise is an important component of shoulder rehabilitation programs to re-establish optimal muscle activation and ratios. Read More

Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, Geisinger Musculoskeletal Institute, 100 N. Academy Avenue, Danville, PA, USA.

Context: Atraumatic shoulder pain is frequently encountered in primary care and surgical clinics. With increased recognition of the biopsychosocial model, there has been an increased emphasis on identifying patient factors associated with less effective coping strategies such as pain catastrophizing. It remains uncertain what impact self-efficacy has on the response to nonoperative treatment of shoulder pain. Read More
