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

Subacromial corticosteroid injections transiently decrease suture anchor pullout strength: biomechanical studies in rats.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2017 Oct 6;26(10):1789-1793. Epub 2017 Jul 6.

Shoulder Unit, Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Background: Arthroscopic rotator cuff (RC) repair incorporates suture anchors to secure torn RC tendons to the greater tuberosity (GT) bone. RC repair strength depends on the anchor-bone interface and on the quality of the GT. We evaluated the effect of single and multiple corticosteroid injections on the pullout strength of suture anchors. Read More

Subacromial Anesthetics Increase Proprioceptive Deficit in the Shoulder and Elbow in Patients With Subacromial Impingement Syndrome.

Clin Med Insights Arthritis Musculoskelet Disord 2017 12;10:1179544117713196. Epub 2017 Jun 12.

Department of Human Physiology, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR, USA.

Shoulder proprioception gives information regarding arm joint position and movement direction. Several studies have investigated shoulder proprioceptive acuity in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS); however, differences in protocols and between-subjects designs have limited scientific inferences regarding proprioception and SIS. We aimed to determine within-subject differences in shoulder and elbow proprioceptive acuity in 17 patients with stage 2 SIS following treatment of a local anesthetic injection. Read More

KALK study: ultrasound guided needling and lavage (barbotage) with steroid injection versus sham barbotage with and without steroid injection - protocol for a randomized, double-blinded, controlled, multicenter study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2017 04 4;18(1):138. Epub 2017 Apr 4.

Department for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Oslo University Hospital, P.O.B. 4956, Nydalen, 0424, Oslo, Norway.

Background: For the treatment of calcific tendinitis of the shoulder a variety of treatment regimes exist. Commonly used treatment measures include medication with oral analgesics, corticosteroid injections, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, ultrasound guided needling and lavage, and surgical treatment. Earlier cohort studies suggest that patients may benefit from these treatments, but there are few randomized studies and conflicting evidence about the effectiveness of the various treatments.

Thawing frozen shoulder by steroid injection.

J Orthop Surg (Hong Kong) 2017 01;25(1):2309499016684470

1 Department of orthopaedics, Maulana Azad Medical College & Lok Nayak Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Background: Frozen shoulder is not an uncommon disorder, and steroid injection into the glenohumeral (GH) joint is one of the most well-known approaches for the frozen shoulder. However, their results have been varied with beneficial effects or no additional advantage. With the understanding about the pathological changes taking place in frozen shoulder and the biomechanics involved, we wanted to evaluate the short- and long-term efficacy of steroid injection by a novel three-site (NTS) injection technique and compare it with the single-site injection (SSI).
