The purpose of this study was to devise and implement an accurate and reproducible method of measuring the area and dimensions of the rotator cuff tendon insertions and their distance from the articular surface. Twenty fresh-frozen cadaveric upper-extremity specimens were divided into 2 groups of 10. In group 1 the specimens were dissected, leaving only the most distal rotator cuff tendons attached to the humerus. The periphery of the insertion onto the greater tuberosity was marked at 3-mm… Expand
The insertional footprint of the rotator cuff: an anatomic study.
TLDR
The entire rotator cuff footprint was defined and related to known, easily identifiable landmarks and may serve as a guide for evaluation of size, location, and propagation patterns of rotators cuff tears, as well as for their repair. Expand
A Normative Anatomic Study of the Glenohumeral Joint and Rotator Cuff Tendons
Introduction: The purpose of this study is to determine normative values relating to the glenohumeral joint and rotator cuff tendons namely length, width, thickness and footprint of supraspinatusExpand
Anatomy and dimensions of the gluteus medius tendon insertion.
TLDR
The anatomic morphology of this tendon insertion is described, which should aid in its repair when necessary and provide surgeons with a better understanding of the footprint anatomy when evaluating gluteus medius tendon tears. Expand
Morphology of the humeral insertion of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons: Application to rotator cuff repair
TLDR
The lateral border of the infraspinatus' humeral attachment extended much farther anteriorly upon the highest facet of the greater tuberosity than in traditional descriptions, and there was no statistical correlation between size of the footprint and age, sex, side, or height. Expand
Orientation of the rotator cuff insertion facets on the humerus: comparison between individuals with intact and torn rotator cuffs.
TLDR
A decrease in the dorsal orientation of the middle facet of the greater tubercle, as the authors observed in the torn rotator cuff group, may reduce the inferior translatory forces generated by the infraspinatus thereby facilitating impingement of the subacromial structures. Expand
Humeral insertion of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. New anatomical findings regarding the footprint of the rotator cuff. Surgical technique.
TLDR
The footprint of the supraspinatus on the greater tuberosity is much smaller than previously believed, and this area of the greater tuberculosis is actually occupied by a substantial amount of the infrasp inatus. Expand

TLDR
Arthroscopic measurement of the exposed bone between the articular margin and the supraspinatus tendon insertion (footprint) is an accurate way to estimate tear depth and provide a rational, reproducible guideline for treatment. Expand
The superior capsule of the shoulder joint complements the insertion of the rotator cuff.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to measure the width of the attachment of the articular capsule on the humerus, and to clarify the anatomy and the relationship to the footprint of the rotator cuff. Expand
Rotator cuff tendons of the shoulder joint : anatomy and investigation of strain profile
TLDR
It was shown that double-row repairs restor d the strains to the intact strain condition and thus may be more efficient for tendon healing than single-rows repairs. Expand

Comparisons related to chronological age documented a morphologic change of the greater tuberosity and progressive degeneration of all elements of the tendinous structures with progressive osteitis. Expand
The collagen types in the attachment zone of rotator cuff tendons in the elderly: an immunohistochemical study.
TLDR
Severe degenerative changes in the cuff tendons of elderly individuals, alter the collagen characteristic of the rotator cuff and that the changes could be associated with impairment of biomechanical properties of the attachment zone, and may give rise to the clinical syndrome of enthesopathy.

Incomplete thickness rotator cuff tears (ITRCT) adjacent to the bursal sac were diagnosed preoperatively by subacromial bursography and confirmed by surgical exposure and pooling of the contrast medium in a torn area of thebursal side of the rotators in all cases. Expand

TLDR
Prognosis of the joint side tear appears to be worse with increasing age, larger tear size, and absence of history of trauma, while the pathogenic mechanisms and factors that affect their evolution are unclear. Expand

TLDR
Findings confirm the homology between IPSID and low-grade B-cell "Western" lymphomas arising in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue and suggest that the follicular pattern sometimes seen in these lymphomas is caused by selective colonization of reactive follicles by CCL tumor cells. Expand
