This study's objective is to elucidate the relationship between acromial spur formation and rotator cuff pathology or aging. The subjects comprised 1029 shoulders in control, cadaveric, and operative groups. A radiograph in the supraspinatus outlet view was taken in all subjects. The lengths of the incident spurs were measured and classified into 3 sizes (small, <5 mm; medium, <10 mm; and large, > or =10 mm). The rotator cuff was macroscopically classified as normal or as having bursal-side… CONTINUE READING
