Resumo

RAWOOT, A  e  DE BEER, J. Arthroscopic treatment of calcifying tendonitis of the shoulder: deposit removal and intra-articular lavage. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.1, pp. 34-36. ISSN 2309-8309.

The optimal treatment of calcifying tendonitis is still controversial and several techniques exist. In this article we describe the arthroscopic operative technique for removal of calcific deposits as well intra-articular lavage. We hypothesised that the removal of these calcium particles from the intra-articular space, usually seen arthroscopically as a 'snowstorm' appearance, would result in a reduction in the incidence of post-procedure frozen shoulder. A retrospective analysis of 93 patients confirmed this.
