A magnetic resonance imaging study of 100 cases of arthroscopic acromioplasty.


BACKGROUND A hooked-type acromion has been suspected to correlate with higher rotator cuff tear or impingement syndrome. However, correlation of acromial shape after acromioplasty with the rotator cuff retears and clinical results has not been studied before. PURPOSE To assess the shape of the acromion after arthroscopic acromioplasty and to see if there… (More)
