Left Shoulder Impingement Syndrome with Arthroscopic Repairs
This stock medical exhibit portrays left shoulder impingement syndrome with arthroscopic repairs in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows the pre-operative condition, in which the clavicle and acromion are impinging on underlying tissue, and the subacromial bursa is inflamed. The second illustration shows the first step in the procedure, in which arthroscopic instruments are inserted into the shoulder through separate stab incisions. The third illustration shows the introduction of a shaver into the subacromial space and the resection of the inflamed bursa. The fourth illustration shows the introduction of a bur to the joint. The distal clavicle and the proximal acromion are resected, decompressing underlying tissue.
