    • anatomic and mechanical - Spurs, overuse, often in painters
    • overuse

    • 17%
    • 42%

    • 3%
    • 24%
    • 70%
  30. what percentage of patients with confirmed rotator cuff tears had AC Spurs
  31. true or false – 10 to 14% of normal AC joints have osteophytes
  32. what are the characteristics of primary impingement
    • repetitious micro trauma - Cuff
    • tendinitis and bursitis - impingement
    • tendinitis and bursitis is mostly caused by overhead motion
  33. what are the characteristics of secondary impingement: theory 1
    • rotator cuff weakness
    • scapular stabilizer weakness
    • rotator cuff fatigue
  34. what are the characteristics of secondary impingement: theory 2
    • clinical or sub clinical instability leads to intrinsic tension overload and/or superior humeral head migration which leads to impingement
    • often seen in throwing athletes
  35. what are the stages of impingement syndrome
    • Stage I - edema and hemorrhage
    • Stage II -- Fibrosis and Tendonitis
    • Stage III- Bone Spurs and tendon rapture
  36. what are the characteristics of impingement stage I
    • < 25 years of age
    • overuse etiology
    • Reversible
    • conservative treatment
  37. what are the characteristics of impingement stage II
    • 25 – 40 years of age
    • recurrent pain with activity
    • bursectomy or CA ligament resection
    • Subacromial decompression
  38. what are the characteristics of impingement stage III
    • > 40 years of age
    • progressive disability
    • partial or complete tears
    • subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair
  39. W ahat is the non-operative treatment of impingment syndrome
    • Relative rest
    • NSAID's
    • steroid injections - in sub acromial space
    • physical therapy
    • surgery if not improved with time
  40. what are the three types of rotator cuff tears
    • bursal surface
    • undersurface
    • full thickness
  41. what are the advantages of acromioplast arthroscopicy
    • improved cosmesis
    • decreased deltoid opening
    • shortens hospital stay
    • earlier active motion and more aggressive with a RROM
  42. true or false – pain is related to the size of the tear
    false – pain is not related to tire size
  43. true or false – small tears in the rotator cuff will not usually enlarge with time
    false – small tears usually will enlarge with time
  44. true or false – surgery is better earlier than later when it concerns the rotator cuff
  45. what does TUBS stand for
    • traumatic
    • unidirectional
    • Bankart
    • Surgery
  46. what does AMBRII stand for
    • a traumatic/acquired
    • multidirectional
    • bilateral
    • rehab
    • inferior capsular shift
    • interval closure
  47. true or false – the shoulder is usually instable anteriorly and inferiorly
  48. dislocation
    the joint surfaces are no longer in contact and the joint requires reduction to reassociate the articular surfaces
  49. subluxation
    the joint does not frankly dislocate. His slips or translates greater than normal. The joint surface may lose contact however they self reduce
  50. hill sachs lesion
    defect on posterior aspect of humeral head
  51. reverse hill sachs
    well defect on anterior aspect of humeral head
  52. Image Upload 4
  53. SLAP Lesion
    type I – ?
    type II - ?
    type III -
    type IV -
    • degen tearing, but intact biceps
    • detachment from glenoid
    • buckethandle tear
    • care extends into biceps tendon
  54. what kind of surgery is done for type I SLAP lesions
  55. what kind of surgeries done for type II, III, and IV
    surgical repair
  56. what is this condition
    Image Upload 6
