During arthroscopic acromioplasty a high level of irrigation fluid pressure is sometimes required to obtain an adequate visual field. To evaluate the influence of bursa pressure level on the blood circulation of the shoulder muscles, we measured the intramuscular pressure (IMP) in the supraspinatus and deltoid muscles with the microcapillary infusion technique during surgery. Eleven patients with impingement syndromes Neer I-III and rotator cuff tendinitis were examined at subacromial bursa… CONTINUE READING
