Numerous reports have shown that retracted rotator cuff tears may cause suprascapular nerve injury, and nerve injury causes atrophy and fat accumulation in the rotator cuff muscles. However, the effect of suprascapular nerve injury on rotator cuff enthesis has not been directly defined. This study aimed to investigate the effect of suprascapular nerve injury on rotator cuff enthesis.

Suprascapular nerve entrapment is rarely treated by neurosurgeons in Japan. However, it is often observed in post-stroke patients and in cases of accessory nerve injury as a complication of posterior ...
Rotator cuff disease is a major medical and economic burden due to a growing aging population, but management of rotator cuff tears remains controversial. We hypothesized that there is no difference i...
A rotator cuff tear (RCT) induces fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) expression, resulting in ectopic fat accumulation in the rotator cuff muscle.
Rotator cuff tendon tears are the most common soft tissue injuries in the shoulder joint. Various animal models have been described for this condition, but all current translational animal models h...
A lack of studies with large sample sizes of patients with rotator cuff tears is a barrier to performing clinical and genomic research.
The suprascapular nerve innervates the musculi supra- and infraspinatus, which, as part of the rotator cuff, allow lifting and external rotation in the shoulder joint. Damage to this nerve...
The investigators compared the results of sono-guided interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB) combined with arthroscopy-guided suprascapular nerve block (SSNB) with those of ISB alone wit...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of suprascapular nerve block guided by ultrasound combined with home exercises compared with placebo. Pain intensity, function, pressure...
The purpose of this study is to examine deficits in activation and motor patterns, as well as central drive in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy. There are three specific aims: (1) d...
There is only one study in the literature about the quantitative effect of M. deltoideus on the movement of the shoulder. Here, the author described a 35-80% loss of abduction power after ...
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.
Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.
Traumatic injury to the abducens, or sixth, cranial nerve. Injury to this nerve results in lateral rectus muscle weakness or paralysis. The nerve may be damaged by closed or penetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA or by facial trauma involving the orbit.
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.
