Summary of "Does the pectoralis minor length influence acromiohumeral distance, shoulder pain-function, and range of movement?"

To determine the association between pectoralis minor length (PML) and the acromiohumeral distance (AHD) in the symptomatic (S) and the asymptomatic (A) shoulder of subjects with chronic shoulder pain, and in shoulder free of pain controls (C). Furthermore, to analyze the relationship between PML and shoulder pain-function and range of movement (ROM) free of pain.

In vivo dynamic acromiohumeral distance in shoulders with rotator cuff tears.

There are no previous studies on the acromiohumeral distance in shoulders with large-to-massive full-thickness rotator cuff tears. In this study, the acromiohumeral distance in rotator cuff tear and h...

Acromiohumeral Distance Change Relates to Middle Trapezius Muscle Activation During Shoulder Elevation With Scapular Retraction.

The scapular retraction exercises are widely used among clinicians to balance the activity of the scapular muscles as well as the rotator cuff muscles in different shoulder abduction positions.

Bipolar transfer of the pectoralis major muscle for restoration of elbow flexion in 29 cases.

This study evaluated the functional outcomes of bipolar pedicled pectoralis major (PM) transfer to restore elbow flexion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles that make up the upper and fore part of the chest in front of the AXILLA.

The act of knowing or the recognition of a distance by recollective thought, or by means of a sensory process which is under the influence of set and of prior experience.

The distance between the anterior and posterior poles of the eye, measured either by ULTRASONOGRAPHY or by partial coherence interferometry.

The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.
