Diagnostic Injections About the Shoulder.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2017 Dec;25(12):799-807

From the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD (Dr. McFarland, Dr. Dein, and Dr. Johnson), and the National Sports Medicine Institute, Leesburg, VA (Dr. Bernard).

Injections about the shoulder serve diagnostic as well as therapeutic purposes. Diagnosis of shoulder conditions, such as rotator cuff tears, acromioclavicular joint pathology, subacromial impingement or anterolateral pain syndrome, glenohumeral joint pathology, suprascapular nerve entrapment, and biceps tendon pathologies, is often complicated by concomitant conditions with overlapping symptoms and by inconclusive physical examination and imaging results. Injections of anesthetic agents can often help clinicians locate the source of pain. Read More

Degenerative joint disease of the acromioclavicular joint: a review.

Am J Sports Med 2013 Nov 6;41(11):2684-92. Epub 2013 May 6.

Brian J. Cole, Division of Sports Medicine, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, 1611 W Harrison, Suite 300, Chicago, IL 60612.

Osteoarthritis of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint is a common condition causing anterior or superior shoulder pain, especially with overhead and cross-body activities. This most commonly occurs in middle-aged individuals because of degeneration to the fibrocartilaginous disk that cushions the articulations. Diagnosis relies on history, physical examination, imaging, and diagnostic local anesthetic injection. Read More
