Is tennis a predisposing factor for degenerative shoulder disease

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2653874/

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of glenohumeral osteoarthritis in the dominant shoulder was greater in former elite tennis players than in sedentary controls. Prolonged intensive tennis practice may be a predisposing factor for the development of mild degenerative articular changes in the dominant shoulder.

Outcome of Arthroscopic Débridement is Worse for Patients With Glenohumeral Arthritis of Both Sides of the Joint

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2505221/

Glenohumeral arthritis in the young patient presents a difficult problem with potentially devastating sequelae. Reports in the literature suggest a role for arthroscopic treatment in patients with symptomatic degenerative joint disease of the shoulder. However, no published study directly compares patients with unipolar versus bipolar cartilage lesions. We retrospectively reviewed...

Radiological features of osteoarthritis of the acromiclavicular joint

Location: http://www.josonline.org/pdf/v16i3p300.pdf

Purpose. To determine whether increasing age is associated with increased radiological features of osteoarthritis of the acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) in a general population, and whether clinical symptoms correlate with radiological features.
Conclusion. Radiological features should only be used as an adjunct in the decision to excise the ACJ. A thorough clinical examination is crucial in the assessment of...

Shoulder tendinitis and osteoarthrosis of the acromioclavicular joint and their relation to sports

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1332135

A sample of 207 men from the construction industry was studied using an epidemiological technique of cross-sectional design to investigate if sport activities involving the arms increase the risk of developing shoulder tendinitis or osteoarthrosis of the acromioclavicular joint. The relative risk for shoulder tendinitis was estimated to be 9.5...

Surgical treatment for acromioclavicular joint osteoarthritis

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2684214/

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of pain originating from the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. An awareness of appropriate diagnostic techniques is necessary in order to localize clinical symptoms to the AC joint. Initial treatments for AC joint osteoarthritis, which include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and corticosteroids, are recommended...
