Why are assumptions passed off as established knowledge?

Med Hypotheses 2020 Mar 24;140:109693. Epub 2020 Mar 24.

Spinal Research Laboratory, Department of Physical Therapy, Stanley Steyer School of Health Professions, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Israel.

In this paper we attempt to explain the problems that can arise when assumptions made by experts in their respective fields of Medicine become widely accepted as established knowledge. Our hypothesis is that these problems are in large part attributable to a failure of the experts to follow the principles of logical argument. Empirical data to evaluate our hypothesis derives from an analysis of the reasoning processes employed in the generation of three syndromes drawn from the clinical discipline of Pain Medicine: myofascial pain, shoulder impingement and central sensitisation.

Subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS) is a commonly diagnosed disorder of the shoulder. Though this disorder has been known for a long time, it remains a poorly understood entity. Over the years several hypotheses have been put forward to describe the pathogenesis of SAIS but no clear explanation has been found. Read More

Evaluation of the cross-sectional area of acromion process for shoulder impingement syndrome.

Korean J Pain 2020 Jan;33(1):60-65

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Catholic Kwandong University International St. Mary's Hospital, Catholic Kwandong University College of Medicine, Incheon, Korea.

Background: Anatomic changes in the acromion have been considered a main cause of shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS). To evaluate the relationship between SIS and the acromion process, we devised a new morphological parameter called the acromion process cross-sectional area (APA). We hypothesized that the APA could be an important morphologic diagnostic parameter in SIS. Read More

New predictors for subscapularis tear: Coraco-lesser tuberosity angle, lesser tuberosity angle, and lesser tuberosity height.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2020 Feb 11;106(1):45-51. Epub 2019 Dec 11.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dankook University College of Medicine, Cheonan, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Background: The pathogenesis of degenerative subscapularis (SC) tear is not clear, several mechanisms are involved: intrinsic tendon degeneration or subcoracoid impingement. The aim of this study was to propose new radiographic markers, the coraco-lesser tuberosity angle (CLA), lesser tuberosity angle (LTA) and lesser tuberosity height (LTH). The hypothesis was that higher values of CLA, LTA, and LTH would be associated with a higher likelihood in detecting a SC tear. Read More
