Nine fresh-frozen, human cadaveric shoulders were elevated in the scapular plane in two different humeral rotations by applying forces along action lines of rotator cuff and deltoid muscles. Stereophotogrammetry determined possible regions of subacromial contact using a proximity criterion; radiographs measured acromiohumeral interval and position of greater tuberosity. Contact starts at the anterolateral edge of the acromion at 0 degrees of elevation; it shifts medially with arm elevation. On… CONTINUE READING
