Acute rotator cuff tears

Abstract:

A 45 year old woman falls on ice and injures her shoulder. Assessment at her local hospital reveals bruising only and no bony injury on plain radiographs. Despite ongoing reassurance and participation in a physiotherapy programme for three months, she continues to complain of pain, weakness, and inability to raise her arm. Eventually she is referred to a specialist shoulder clinic, where an ultrasound scan confirms she has suffered an acute full thickness tear of her supraspinatus tendon.<...>
