Shoulder Double Crush Syndrome: A Retrospective Study of Patients With Concomitant Suprascapular Neuropathy and Cervical Radiculopathy.

Clin Med Insights Arthritis Musculoskelet Disord 2020 22;13:1179544120921854. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Erlanger Sports and Health Institute, Chattanooga, TN, USA.

Purpose: While the double crush phenomena (compression along two points on a nerve) has been established between median neuropathy and cervical radiculopathy, combined suprascapular neuropathy (SSN) and cervical C5/C6 radiculopathy-so-called shoulder double crush syndrome-has not been well examined. We aim to identify the incidence of shoulder double crush syndrome in patients undergoing arthroscopic suprascapular nerve release for SSN.

Methods: One hundred consecutive patients >18 years of age who were positive for SSN on electromyography and motor nerve conduction studies (EMG/NCS) and underwent a suprascapular nerve release were included. Read More

The Evaluation and Management of Suprascapular Neuropathy.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2020 May 1. Epub 2020 May 1.

From the Division of Sports Medicine, NYU Langone Orthopedics. New York, NY.

Suprascapular neuropathy is a potential source of shoulder pain and functional limitation that can present secondary to various etiologies including entrapment or compression. Cystic lesions arising from a labral or capsular tear can compress the nerve along its course over the scapula. Nerve traction is theorized to arise from chronic overhead athletics or due to a retracted rotator cuff tear. Read More

Persistent Shoulder Pain Due to a Suprascapular Nerve Injury in the Setting of Trauma.

Cureus 2019 Mar 11;11(3):e4224. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Internal Medicine, Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, Boca Raton, USA.

Suprascapular neuropathy is a rare cause of shoulder pain with an injury to the nerve intrinsically related to the anatomy and course of the suprascapular nerve. The common etiologies of a suprascapular nerve injury include repetitive overhead activity, rotator cuff pathology, and compression of the nerve at either the suprascapular or the spinoglenoid notch secondary to space-occupying lesions. Although uncommon, suprascapular nerve damage has been associated with scapular fractures previously. Read More

Hourglass-like constriction neuropathy of the suprascapular nerve detected by high-resolution magnetic resonance neurography: report of three patients.

Skeletal Radiol 2019 Sep 12;48(9):1451-1456. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, 81 Irwon-Ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06351, South Korea.

Hourglass-like constriction neuropathy is a neurological condition caused by non-traumatic, non-compressive fascicular constrictions of one or more individual peripheral nerves. Based on clinical manifestations, it is very difficult to differentiate hourglass-like constriction neuropathy from idiopathic neuralgic amyotrophy. Focal hourglass-like constriction neuropathy may be erroneously diagnosed as idiopathic neuralgic amyotrophy. Read More

Basis of Shoulder Nerve Entrapment Syndrome: An Ultrasonographic Study Exploring Factors Influencing Cross-Sectional Area of the Suprascapular Nerve.

Front Neurol 2018 23;9:902. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey.

As changes in nerves' shape and size are common ultrasonographic findings of entrapment neuropathy, measurement of the nerve cross-sectional area (CSA) becomes the mostly used indicator to differentiate normality from pathology. Recently, more US research has been conducted to measure the shape of the suprascapular notch and the diameter of the suprascapular nerve. Because the suprascapular nerve is paramount for various shoulder disorders, the present study aims to establish normal values of suprascapular nerve sizes at different levels as well as to investigate potential influence of participants' characteristics on the CSA measurements.

Editorial Commentary: Suprascapular Neuropathy in Overhead Athletes: To Release or Not to Release?

Authors:
Patrick J Denard

Arthroscopy 2018 09;34(9):2558-2559

A growing body of evidence has demonstrated that repetitive overhead athletes with shoulder pathology often have associated infraspinatus atrophy and suprascapular neuropathy. Although decompression of the suprascapular nerve has not been shown to clearly impact outcomes in the general population, release of the nerve in overhead athletes with documented evidence of impingement may improve outcomes in this high-demand population.

A Large Size Lipoma at Spinoglenoid Notch Mimicked Traumatic Rotator Cuff Tear.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Jun;23(2):267-269

* Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Myongji Hospital, Goyang, Korea.

Herein, we report a large lipoma at the spinoglenoid notch that mimicked a rotator cuff tear, which occurred in a 61-year-old male farmer. Weakness and pain in the shoulder started abruptly after hard labor, and our first impression was a traumatic rotator cuff tear; however, there was no tear on MRI, and complete marginal excision of a large lipoma at the spinoglenoid notch relieved the symptoms completely at a postoperative three-month follow-up visit. We believe that certain activities such as forceful shoulder abduction may have caused the sudden onset of suprascapular neuropathy in the loosely compressed suprascapular nerve by the lipoma.

A new anatomical insight into the aetiology of lateral trunk of suprascapular nerve neuropathy: isolated infraspinatus atrophy.

Surg Radiol Anat 2018 Mar 9;40(3):333-341. Epub 2018 Mar 9.

Department of Angiology, Interfaculty Chair of Anatomy and Histology, Medical University of Łódź, Narutowicza 60, 90-136, Lodz, Poland.

Introduction: Although the pathomechanism of isolated infraspinatus atrophy (ISA) in throwing sports is known to be traction, it is unclear why only some players are affected. One likely explanation is that the infraspinatus pulling force exerted by its contracture generate the compressive resultant component force (Fn) compressing the lateral trunk of the suprascapular nerve (LTSN) against the edge of scapular spine. This paper makes two key assumptions (1) the course of LTSN in relation to the scapular spine, defined as the suprascapular-scapular spine angle (SSSA) is the key individual anatomical feature influencing the Fn magnitude, and thus potentially ISA development (2) SSSA is correlated with scapular notch type.

Isolated Infraspinatus Atrophy Secondary to Suprascapular Nerve Neuropathy Results in Altered Shoulder Muscles Activity.

J Sport Rehabil 2019 Mar 4;28(3):219-228. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Context: Isolated infraspinatus atrophy (IIA) is a common condition among overhead activity athletes, which affects the hitting shoulder and is caused by suprascapular nerve injury. The loss of infraspinatus function could lead to altered activity of the glenohumeral and scapulothoracic (ST) muscles and compromise the optimal shoulder function.

Objective: To assess the surface electromyographic (sEMG) activity patterns, relationships, and response latencies of relevant shoulder girdle muscles in professional volleyball players with IIA and in healthy control players. Read More

Relationship between neuropathy proximal to the suprascapular nerve and rotator cuff tear in a rodent model.

J Orthop Sci 2018 Mar 12;23(2):414-419. Epub 2018 Jan 12.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Chiba University, Japan.

Background: Rotator cuff tears are believed to coexist with cervical spine lesions. In cases of preexisting neuropathy, such as cervical spine lesions, fatty degeneration has likely already occurred due to the neuropathy. In these cases, rotator cuff tear is thought to occur easily because of preexisting extensive fatty degeneration and degeneration of the tendons due to neuropathy. Read More

Shoulder position sense in volleyball players with infraspinatus atrophy secondary to suprascapular nerve neuropathy.

Scand J Med Sci Sports 2018 Jan 19;28(1):267-275. Epub 2017 Apr 19.

Department of Experimental Medicine, University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy.

Isolated infraspinatus atrophy (IIA) is a common condition among overhead-activity athletes, which affects the hitting shoulder and is caused by suprascapular nerve injury. As the suprascapular nerve is a mixed nerve, such damage could lead to reduced afferent proprioceptive information and impaired shoulder sensorimotor control. This study aimed to evaluate the proprioception of the shoulder with IIA, through the assessment of shoulder position sense. Read More

Anterior Coracoscapular Ligament as a Factor Predisposing to or Protective for Suprascapular Neuropathy.

Biomed Res Int 2016 25;2016:4134280. Epub 2016 Dec 25.

Department of Normal and Clinical Anatomy, Interfaculty Chair of Anatomy and Histology, Medical University of Łódź, Narutowicza 60, 90-136 Łódź, Poland.

Suprascapular neuropathy is a pathology caused by injury or compression of the suprascapular nerve. As the nerve runs from the anterior to posterior side of the scapula, the hot point where it is most susceptible to both injury and compression is the suprascapular notch. A literature search reveals several potential predisposing morphological factors in this area. Read More

Suprascapular neuropathy in the setting of rotator cuff tears: study protocol for a double-blinded randomized controlled trial.

Trials 2016 11 22;17(1):554. Epub 2016 Nov 22.

First Orthopaedic Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Background: It has been indicated that rotator cuff tears, especially large or massive ones, can cause suprascapular neuropathy. When such a diagnosis has been established, it is still unknown whether an arthroscopic release of the superior transverse scapular ligament during cuff repair can change the course of this neuropathy.

Methods/design: This is a single-center, double-blinded randomized controlled trial for which 42 patients with large or massive repairable rotator cuff tears and suprascapular neuropathy will be recruited and followed up at 6 and 12 months. Read More

A quantitative study of the arrangement of the suprascapular nerve and vessels in the suprascapular notch region: new findings based on parametric analysis.

Folia Morphol (Warsz) 2016;75(4):454-459. Epub 2016 Nov 10.

Department of Angiology, Interfaculty Chair of Anatomy and Histology, Medical University of Łódź, Poland.

Background: When closed by the superior transverse scapular ligament (STSL), the suprascapular notch (SSN) creates an osseo-fibrous tunnel which acts as a pathway for the suprascapular nerve (SN). Anatomical variations are common in this region, and these can increase the risk of neuropathy by restricting the space for nerve passage. The aim of this study is to identify any correlation between the area reduction coefficient parameters and the SN and vessel arrangements in the SSN region. Read More
