fig0015: Arthroscopic release of scar tissue in the rotator cuff interval.

Mentions: The patient was followed up after 3 months. She complained of pain and limitation of movements. On examination she had 90° of flexion and abduction and no external rotation. She underwent arthroscopic capsular release of the shoulder. The arthroscopy revealed inflamed biceps tendon and scar tissue in the rotator cuff interval. The scar tissue was excised and medial gleno-humeral ligament released (Fig 3). Intensive shoulder physiotherapy was started same day of surgery and continued for six weeks. The check-up at 3 months revealed good functional range of movements.
