Disease relevance of Shoulder Pain

  • Eight patients were found to have carpal tunnel syndrome, 16 had chronic shoulder pain, 8 had subchondral bone cysts, and 13 had destructive arthropathies [1].
  • The 7 most valuable criteria for differentiation were bilateral shoulder pain or stiffness, onset of illness of less than 2 weeks' duration, initial ESR greater than 40 mm/h, duration of morning stiffness exceeding 1 hour, age 65 years or more, depression and/or weight loss, and bilateral tenderness in the upper arms [2].
  • Although patients who received succinylcholine complained of significantly more neck pain during the 24-h period after discharge, nausea, vomiting, and shoulder pain were similar in all three groups during this period [3].
  • CONCLUSIONS: As expected, once-daily oxaprozin proved to be as effective as diclofenac three times daily in reducing the primary efficacy variable of patient-assessed shoulder pain score in patients with periarthritis of the shoulder refractory to previous treatments with other NSAIDs [4].
  • Compared with control subjects the rheumatic group as a whole (p less than 0.01) as well as subgroups like those with arthralgia (p less than 0.01), subacromial shoulder pain (p less than 0.03), and low-back pain (p less than 0.05), had decreased proportions of adipose tissue arachidonic acid [5].

High impact information on Shoulder Pain

  • OBJECTIVE: Local steroid injections and community-based physiotherapy have been shown to be of similar benefit for treating shoulder pain presenting to primary care [7].
  • Most studies were found for the Disability of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand scale (DASH), the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI), and the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Standardised Shoulder Assessment Form (ASES) [8].
  • OBJECTIVE: To perform a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled trial of the efficacy of suprascapular nerve block for shoulder pain in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and/or degenerative disease of the shoulder [9].
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the relationship between the expression of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and IL-1 receptor antagonists (IL-1ra) in the subacromial bursa and shoulder pain in rotator cuff diseases [10].
  • CONCLUSION: The results suggest that IA guanethidine produced measurable improvement in resistant shoulder pain and that further studies of this novel approach are indicated [11].

Chemical compound and disease context of Shoulder Pain

  • Steroid therapy resulted in partial remission; however, intractable shoulder pain and an enlarging clavicular mass subsequently recurred [12].
  • Shoulder pain was experienced by 33% of patients receiving lidocaine, compared with 85% of patients receiving saline (P < 0.008) [13].
  • Despite this difference, there was no significant reduction in the amount of analgesic medication used by the patients who received bupivacaine, nor was there any reduction in nausea, vomiting, or shoulder pain when queried specifically [14].
  • In all 8 patients, despite continuation of therapy with indinavir, both shoulder pain and restricted ROM completely resolved, after a mean disease course of 7.4 months [15].
  • His shoulder pain intensified despite treatment with hydrocodone and acetaminophen, and the flu-like symptoms progressed over the next 2 days [16].

Biological context of Shoulder Pain


Anatomical context of Shoulder Pain


Gene context of Shoulder Pain

  • METHODS: 83 people with chronic shoulder pain from degenerative disease or RA took part in the trial [9].
  • Ankylosing spondylitis presenting as shoulder pain in an athlete. A case report [20].
  • INTERVENTIONS: Participants completed the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Patient Self-Evaluation Form (function subscale, modified), the disability subscale of the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index, the Simple Shoulder Test, and the function subscale of the University of Pennsylvania Shoulder Scale [21].
  • We conclude that one type of shoulder pain experienced by patients on long-term haemodialysis is caused by the subacromial impingement of amyloid deposits [22].
  • The hot can: ICD failure presenting as severe shoulder pain [23].
