Findings link acromion spurs with full-thickness cuff tears

Full-thickness cuff tears were associated with the presence of an acromion spur, and a higher acromial index and critical shoulder angle. However, a higher acromial index and critical shoulder angle were not associated with partial tears, according to results.

Based on sonographic examination, researchers categorized 166 patients who presented with non-traumatic unilateral shoulder pain into a degenerative full-thickness tear cohort (group 1), partial thickness bursal tear cohort (group 2) or normal cuff cohort (group 3).
