An evidence-based review of current perceptions with regard to the subacromial space in shoulder impingement syndromes: Is it important and what influences it?
The hypothesis that a reduction in subacromial space is an extrinsic cause of impingement syndromes is not conclusively established and the evidence permits no conclusion, so research exploring the correlation between biomechanical factors and the subacROMial space, using the later as the outcome measure, would be beneficial.

Acromiohumeral Distance During Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation of the Lower Trapezius and Serratus Anterior Muscles in Healthy Participants.
The hypothesis that the muscle force couple around the scapula is important in rehabilitation and scapular control and influences acromiohumeral distance was supported. Expand
Reinterpretation of O'Brien test in posterior labral tears of the shoulder
Using a sign of clinically demonstrated weakness when performing the O'Briens test, and hence reinterpretation of the test, is sensitive, with a high PPV for posterior labral pathology and can help guide further treatment. Expand
Sport specific adaptation in resting length of pectoralis minor in professional male golfers
Professional male golfers have a unique pattern of resting pectorals minor muscle length, with longer pectoralis minor length noted in the trail/ dominant shoulder, compared to age-matched controls. Expand
Surgery for the fractured clavicle: factors predicting nonunion.
BACKGROUND This study identifies the reasons for failure after plate osteosynthesis of midshaft clavicle fractures, complication rates, and time to radiographic union. METHODS A retrospectiveExpand
Low-grade infections in nonarthroplasty shoulder surgery.
Young male patients are at greatest risk for low-grade infections after arthroscopic and open nonarthroplasty shoulder surgery, and interestingly, 78.6% of patients with negative cultures responded positively to empirical treatment. Expand
The Effects of Rigid Scapular Taping on Acromiohumeral Distance in Healthy Shoulders: An Observational Study.
Results suggest that taping for increasing posterior scapular tilt and increasingScapular upward rotation can influence the AHD and is a useful adjunct to rehabilitation in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome. Expand
Inter‐rater Reliability of Real‐Time Ultrasound to Measure Acromiohumeral Distance
Real‐time ultrasound (RTUS) has been suggested as a reliable measure of acromiohumeral distance. However, to date, no vigorous assessment and reporting of inter‐rater reliability of this method hasExpand
Quantitative Assessment of Glenohumeral Translation in Professional Golfers Using Ultrasound
Real Time Ultrasound Scanning is a reliable method of assessing posterior glenohumeral laxity in golfers and Posterior translation of the humeral head was greater in golfer in the non dominant/lead shoulder compared with controls. Expand
Assessment of the reliability of real time ultrasound scanning to measure the humeral head position in a number of glenohumeral joint positions
The aim of the current study is to assess the intra-rater and inter- rater reliability of real time ultrasound scanning in measuring static humeral head position and to establish an experimental clinical protocol for this procedure. Expand
