J Clin Orthop Trauma 2021 Aug 15;19:81-88. Epub 2021 May 15.

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Poor tendon to bone healing following rotator cuff repair has led to the continued interest and investigation into biological augmentation. The biology of tendinopathy is not fully understood and consequently the availability of disease modifying therapeutic targets is limited. A ceiling of benefit has been reached by mechanical optimisation of rotator cuff repair and thus, in order to improve healing rates, a biological solution is required. Read More

Curr Sports Med Rep 2021 Jun;20(6):298-305

Orthopedic Surgery and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.

Abstract: Treatment of musculoskeletal conditions in athletes with extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is gaining popularity as greater evidence supports its use. ESWT protocols (describing energy flux density, number of impulses, type of shockwave (focused or radial), number/frequency/duration of treatment session, area of application, and postprocedural therapy protocols) can be adjusted in the clinical setting. Protocols vary across studies, and optimal protocols for most indications are yet to be determined. Read More

Med Ultrason 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, Bologna, Italy.

Calcific tendinopathy (CT) is a very common condition caused by the deposition of calcium hydroxyapatite crystals in tendons and it can be an incidental finding or associated with severe pain. CT can be easily detected by first level exams such as traditional radiography and ultrasound (US), which provide information on the site, extent and composition of the calcific formation. Classically, the most affected site is represented by the rotator cuff tendons, in particular the supraspinatus tendon. Read More
