Acute Calcific Tendinitis of the Flexor Carpi Ulnaris Tendon Treated with Lavage and Steroid Injection: A Case Report.

S D Med 2022 Apr;75(4):166-169

Sanford Radiology, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Acute calcific tendinitis (ACT) is a relatively uncommon disorder that can involve the hand and wrist. ACT is frequently misdiagnosed due to a lack of familiarity with the condition and the clinical presentation that can be confused with other conditions. We report a case of acute calcific tendinitis of the flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) tendon in a 68-year-old woman. Read More

Celecoxib, Beyond Anti-inflammation, Alleviates Tendon-Derived Stem Cell Senescence in Degenerative Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy.

Am J Sports Med 2022 Jun 6:3635465221098133. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Orthopedics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy: Magnitude of Incapability is Associated with Greater Symptoms of Depression Rather than Pathology Severity.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2022 Apr 21. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA.

Background: Population-based studies have established that most people develop rotator cuff tendinopathy during their lifetime, it is often accommodated, and there is limited correspondence between symptom intensity and pathology severity. To test the relationship between effective accommodation and mental health on its continuum, we studied the relative association of magnitude of capability with symptoms of anxiety or depression compared to quantifications of rotator cuff pathology such as defect size, degree of retraction, and muscle atrophy among people presenting for specialty care.

Methods: We analyzed a retrospective cohort of 71 adults seeking specialty care for symptoms of rotator cuff tendinopathy, that had a recent Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the shoulder, and completed the following questionnaires: PROMIS Global Health (a measure of symptom intensity and magnitude of capability, consisting of the mental and physical Health subscores), the Generalized Anxiety Disorder (symptoms of anxiety), and the Patient Health Questionnaire (symptoms of depression).

Evaluating the Role of Subacromial Impingement in Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy: Development and Analysis of a Novel Rat Model.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2022 Apr 14. Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Orthopedic Soft Tissue Research Program, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Subacromial impingement of the rotator cuff caused by variations in acromial anatomy or altered glenohumeral kinematics leads to inflammation and degeneration of the rotator cuff, ultimately contributing to the development of tendinopathy. However, the underlying cellular and molecular changes in the impinged tendon remain poorly understood. Since the rat is an accepted model for rotator cuff studies, we have developed a rat model to study rotator cuff tendinopathy. Read More

Ultrasound-guided percutaneous irrigation of calcific tendinopathy outside the rotator cuff: short-term evaluation.

Skeletal Radiol 2022 Apr 2. Epub 2022 Apr 2.

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

Rationale And Objectives: While ultrasound-guided percutaneous irrigation for painful calcific tendinopathy (US-PICT) is the treatment of choice for the rotator cuff, there is a lack of knowledge regarding the treatment of this condition with atypical location.

Editorial Commentary: Current Indications for Lateral Acromioplasty Include Patients With Elevated Critical Shoulder Angle Plus Subacromial Impingement With Rotator Cuff Pathology or Previous Rotator Cuff Repair.

Arthroscopy 2022 03;38(3):716-718

Vail, Colorado.

The critical shoulder angle (CSA) reflects the lateral extent of the acromion and the inclination of the glenoid. In 2013, CSA was first introduced and its association with rotator cuff (RC) tears and glenohumeral osteoarthritis (GHOA) was shown. It was speculated that with a high CSA, there was an increased superior force vector from the deltoid and that this superior force led to RC tears. Read More

Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration and a Growing Challenge: A Focused Review.

Curr Sports Med Rep 2022 Mar;21(3):78-83

Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL.

Abstract: Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA), an entity that causes acute shoulder pain and may limit range of motion (ROM) after vaccination, is a condition where a small but significant percentage of patients are experiencing in light of the current push for mass immunizations against SARS-CoV-2 worldwide. A search of literature related to SIRVA was performed across multiple electronic databases. Women, patients reporting vaccine injection location to be too high, and patients without prior history of shoulder pain were the most common historical factors in those experiencing SIRVA.

Chronic Low Back Pain Forced Me to Search for and Find Pain Solutions: An Autobiographical Case Report.

Helene Bertrand

Cureus 2022 Jan 23;14(1):e21529. Epub 2022 Jan 23.

Department of Family Practice, University of British Columbia, North Vancouver, CAN.

Lifelong, pregnancy-induced low back pain forced me to search for solutions to the problem of pain. Currently, low back pain is often diagnosed as "nonspecific" and, as a result, a multitude of tests and poorly effective, at times side effect-laden or habit-forming treatments are recommended. My quest for relief took me to first diagnose my pain as coming from the sacroiliac joints, then to prolotherapy, the first treatment which brought me prolonged relief. Read More
