Effects of a movement training oriented rehabilitation program on symptoms, functional limitations and acromiohumeral
distance in individuals with subacromial pain syndrome, Man Ther.
distance in overhead athletes with glenohumeral internal rotation loss and the influence of a stretching program.
Using these radiographs the surgeon can assess bone quality, osteophytes, acromiohumeral
space, humeral canal diameter, and in most cases glenoid version.
Association between rotator cuff abnormalities and reduced acromiohumeral
We ordered diagnostic studies, including plain radiographs, which revealed degenerative changes at the acromioclavicular joint, decreased acromiohumeral
interval, and no significant changes at the glenohumeral joint (FIGURE 2), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the right shoulder.
Radiographs in the presence of a cuff tear may show superior migration of the humeral head, with a reduced acromiohumeral
distance of less than 7mm indicating a cuff tear (Ellman et al 1986, Walch et al 1992).
Effect of posture on acromiohumeral distance with arm elevation in rotator cuff disease using ultrasonography.
Acromiohumeral distance and 3-dimensional scapular position change after overhead muscle fatigue.
The effects of arm elevation on the 3-dimensional acromiohumeral
distance: a biplane fluoroscopy study with normative data.
Rotator cuff tear arthropathy, as it was termed by Neer, was characterized by a massive rotator cuff tear with superior humeral head migration and diminished acromiohumeral
distance with "femoralization" of the tuberosities and "acetabularization" of the acromion.
Thus, these radiographs will frequently demonstrate a decrease in the distance between the humeral head and undersurface of the acromion, or the acromiohumeral
