We investigated the effectiveness of arthroscopic decompression in stageⅡsubacromial impingement after long term follow up. Arthroscopic subacromial decompression was done in 104 consecutive patients who had stageⅡsubacromial impingement. After average of 8.4 years follow up, the final results were as following; 57 shoulders(55%) in excellent, 25(24%) in good, 16(15%) in fair and 6(6%) in poor. All parameters-pain, function, muscle strength and motion-were improved significantly(p<0.001). Rotator cuff tear was developed in 10 shoulders after decompression. Among them, 8 shoulders had unfavorable results including two poor. In 6 failures, two had rotator cuff tear, three had recurrence of impingement with degenerative change and reflex sympathetic dystrophy was developed in one. Reoperations were done in 4 shoulders. Improvement of impingement symptoms was maintained in the most of patients(79%) after long term follow up. Arthroscopic decompression surgery was very effective means for stageⅡ impingement syndrome.
