  • Rotator cuff tears usually cause a grinding facet in the undersurface of the acromion, called facies articularis acromialis, which is observable in dried scapulas. Some authors have related the pathogenesis of rotator cuff tears to an intrinsic degeneration of the cuff, while others have indicated that this pathology would be due to subacromial impingement. Some of the latter suggest that rotator cuff tears are associated with a narrowing of the subacromial space, mainly related to variations… CONTINUE READING
