Disease relevance of Rotator Cuff


Psychiatry related information on Rotator Cuff

  • The Simple Shoulder Test is a patient-based self-assessment device that easily can be incorporated into a busy clinical practice, providing outcome data comparable with complex evaluation systems when evaluating the results of rotator cuff repair [6].

High impact information on Rotator Cuff

  • Hydroxyapatite crystals and rotator cuff disorders: comment on the article by Gomoll et al [7].
  • Two ultrasonographic findings were selectively observed in the dialysis patients with clinical and histologic evidence of beta 2m amyloid in comparison with patients with normal renal function and no evidence of amyloid: rotator cuffs greater than 8 mm in thickness and echogenic pads between muscle groups of the rotator cuff [8].
  • Rotator cuff tears in rheumatoid arthritis [2].
  • CONCLUSION: Proton MR spectroscopy is suitable in the assessment of apparent lipid content of rotator cuff muscles [9].
  • The algorithm was tested on coronal images of the rotator cuff in a series of 144 patients, and the improvements in image quality were similar to those achieved with navigator echoes [10].
