One of the most common causes of pain and disability in the upper limb is inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons. When no significant bony abnormality exists in the surrounding structures, the coracoacromial ligament has been implicated as a possible cause of impingement on the cuff tendons. Geometric and mechanical properties of 20 coracoacromial ligaments, 10 from shoulders with rotator cuff tears and 10 from normal shoulders, were accurately determined. In comparing rotator cuff tear and… CONTINUE READING
