Effect of tear size, corticosteroids and subacromial decompression surgery on the hierarchical structural properties of torn supraspinatus tendons.

Tilley JM, Murphy RJ, Chaudhury S, Czernuszka JT, Carr AJ - Bone Joint Res (2014)

Bottom Line: The effects of disease progression and common tendinopathy treatments on the tissue characteristics of human rotator cuff tendons have not previously been evaluated in detail owing to a lack of suitable sampling techniques.Further work is required to establish the long-term abilities of SCI and SAD to prevent, and even reverse, such degeneration.Cite this article: Bone Joint Res 2014;3:252-61.

Mean angle between fibril measurementsfor partial tear groups before and after subachromial corticosteroidinjections (SCI) and subacromial decompression (SAD) treatments.There are no significant changes in mean angle post- SCI treatment.There is a significant decrease in mean angle post-SAD surgery comparedwith the pre-SAD-surgery measurements (p = 0.005).
