Grade of coracoacromial ligament degeneration as a predictive factor for impingement syndrome and type of partial rotator cuff tear
Este artículo es originalmente publicado en:
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of coracoacromial ligament degeneration and specific anatomic parameters in the etiology of partial-thickness rotator cuff tears.
Grade 1 and grade 2 coracoacromial ligament degeneration is a strong predictive factor for impingement syndrome in the etiology of bursal-side partial cuff tears and can guide the surgeon to consider ligament release and débridement or acromioplasty in these patients.
