Soft tissue transfers such as the Magnusson-Stack procedure (subscapularis
transfer from the lesser tuberosity to the greater tuberosity) and the Putti-Platt procedure (medial capsular advancement of the lateral joint capsule with an associated subscapularis
tendoesis) have been associated with decreased range of motion, altered joint biomechanics, and increased glenohumeral wear.
Associated involvement of subscapularis
and infraspinatus muscles did not show much difference.
The site of each full-thickness subscapularis
tendon tear was confirmed, and the incision was using subcutaneous and skin sutures.
The scapula glides over the thoracic wall, cushioned from the undulating surface of the ribs by the serratus anterior and subscapularis
Additional mass lesions with similar hypermetabolic activity were identified in the right subscapularis
muscle ([SUV.sub.max] = 15) and left adrenal gland ([SUV.sub.max] = 15.3).
MRI of the right humerus was obtained and showed small bursal effusion, severe osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tear, severe chondral loss, severe tendinosis of subscapularis
tendon, and full-thickness tear supraspinatus tendon, but no muscle edema.
I can feel the gentle stretch in my subscapularis
buried behind each shoulder blade: the hard-to-reach muscles that contract and hurt, often leading to neck or shoulder pain.
For instance, a full-thickness tear of the SST was significantly associated with the entire spectrum of BPEs, whereas subscapularis
tendon tears were significantly associated with moderate and severe BPEs.
The relationship between [VO.sub.2]max and waist circumference (5, 7, 11), BMI (5, 9, 11), body mass (9), body fat percentage (4), triceps skinfold (12), subscapularis
skinfold (13) and sum of skinfolds (4, 5) has been verified.
One researcher demonstrated that SSB was a separate pouch.[sup] However, others believed that SSB was actually the superior subscapularis
recess (SSR), which is an outpouching of the glenohumeral joint capsule.[sup],, Whether or not the SSB and SSR are two different bursae must be confirmed.
Therefore the target muscles to which treatment must be directed are the pectoral muscles anteriorly (pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, and the subclavius), and the posterior muscles of thoracic-spinal extension (erector spinae and transversospinalis), shoulder girdle retraction (rhomboids and trapezius, especially middle trapezius), and humeral medial rotation (subscapularis
, teres major, latissimus dorsi, anterior deltoid, and pectoralis major).
The major bursae are, the scapulothoracic bursa which is located between the posterior chest wall and the serratus anterior muscle and subscapular bursa which is located between the subscapularis
and serratus anterior muscles (Fig.1).
