Arthroscopic Surgery

I recognize as significant clinical entities, complete rupture of the supraspinatus tendon, partial rupture of the supraspinatus tendon, calcified deposits in the tendons of the short rotators, and tendinitis of the short rotators; and I do not recognize muscular rheumatism, neuritis, or idiopathic monarticular arthritis of the shoulder, as entities of sufficient clinical frequency or importance to make them demand special forms of treatment, although these terms are much more frequently used as diagnoses on which physicians base their therapeutics.

Subacromial impingement has become a common diagnosis in shoulders. It is a specific diagnosis, and is not the only cause of anterior shoulder pain. In this condition there is inflammation in the subacromial bursa/space.
