Introduction: Rotator cuff constitutes a mechanical arm and an important stabilizing factor for the shoulder joint, and the supraspinatus muscle is the initiator of the movement of arm in the abduction direction. Rotator cuff injuries constitute an important part of the shoulder pain, and many cases are managed conservatively, nevertheless, open or arthroscopic surgery remains a must in many cases.

Case Report: We present the case of a patient in the sixth decade of life who complained of absence of abduction movement in his right shoulder three months ago after he lifted a heavy object. Read More

Ultrasonic aspiration for vaccination-related shoulder dysfunction.

Heliyon 2021 Nov 23;7(11):e08442. Epub 2021 Nov 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, 601 N. Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD, 21287, USA.

Background: Chronic shoulder pain occurs rarely after a vaccination and is hypothesized to arise from the effects of unintentional vaccine injection into the subacromial bursa, rotator cuff, capsule or underlying bone. The avascular nature of the rotator cuff, as well as unknown genetic and environmental factors, may predispose to the persistence of pain and disability, referred to as vaccination-related shoulder dysfunction and shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA).

Methods: Ultrasonography, sonopalpation and ultrasound-guided anesthetic injections were used to locate the anatomical source of chronic (mean 20, range 8-42 months) shoulder pain after a vaccination in a consecutive series of 5 patients. Read More
