Adhesion of the subacromial bursa may cause subacromial impingement in patients with rotator cuff tears

Location: http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/content~db=all?content=10.1080/00016470410001708220

In order to determine whether adhesion of the subacromial bursa leads to impingement, we measured the subacromial contact pressures before and after release of adhesion of this bursa.
We suggest that adhesion of the subacromial bursa increases impingement between the acromion and the insertion of rotator cuff tendons.
Adhesion of the subacromial...
