Abstract
PURPOSE
To evaluate the bursoscopic findings of refractory primary adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder and to determine the clinical correlation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Arthroscopic capsular release was performed in 21 refractory adhesive capsulitis patients who had not responded to conservative treatment. The VAS for pain, range of motion, UCLA score was checked before and after surgery, and at the last follow up.
RESULTS
Bursitis, mild friction and impingement on coracoacromial ligament, as well as adhesion were observed. The function and pain improved earlier than after simple acromiohumeral joint capsular release.
CONCLUSION
Subacromial bursoscopy helps rule out a hidden secondary frozen shoulder or secondary changes with primary adhesion. In addition, it has the advantage of being both a treatment and procedure for making a prognosis.
Key Words: Shoulder; Adhesive capsulitis; Subacromial bursa; Bursal pathology
