Frozen shoulder is said to be a self-limiting entity but full recovery often takes more than 2 years. For that, most patients are unwilling to tolerate painful restriction while awaiting resolution. We prospectively investigated 30 patients (16 women, 14 men) for the outcome of arthroscopic capsular release in idiopathic frozen shoulder. Results were determined by the assessment of subjective and objective parameters to estimate both shoulder function and general health status. Symptoms… 

Arthroscopic capsular release for idiopathic frozen shoulder with intra-articular injection and a controlled manipulation

This large series of patients with a precise and isolated diagnosis of stage II idiopathic frozen shoulder demonstrates that arthroscopic capsular release is a safe procedure, with rapid improvement in pain and a marked improvement in range of motion.

Arthroscopic release for frozen shoulder: Does the timing of intervention and diabetes affect outcome?

Arthroscopic release provides effective and rapid improvements to shoulder motion and function, unrelated to the timing of surgery, in patients with frozen shoulder.

Arthroscopic Treatment of Rotator Cuff Tears With Shoulder Stiffness

Overall satisfactory results could be achieved by either method, whereas rapid recovery and improvement of range of motion could be achieve by using a single arthroscopic repair and concomitant release for patients with rotator cuff tears with stiff shoulder.

Predictors of Outcome After Nonoperative and Operative Treatment of Adhesive Capsulitis

A multimodal nonoperative treatment program is effective for most patients with adhesive capsulitis, and patients who do not improve, including those with diabetes, respond well to manipulation and arthroscopic release.

In the treatment of rotator cuff tear with concomitant stiffness, although the recovery of ROM took longer in patients who underwent the one-stage procedure, satisfactory results at final follow-up can be achieved using either the one -stage procedure or two- stage procedure.
