  • Rotator cuff tendinitis is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain. The term noncalcific tendinitis refers to rotator cuff tendinitis without calcium deposits. The term calcific tendinitis indicates the presence of calcium deposits in the rotator cuff tendons, most commonly in the supraspinatus tendon near its insertion site (1). The prevalence of calcium deposits has been reported as 2% to 20% of asymptomatic shoulders, 6.8% of patients with shoulder pain, and up to 17% of patients with… CONTINUE READING
