Successful long-term results seen after arthroscopic subacromial decompression for impingement syndrome

Patients with impingement syndrome did well 20 years after their index arthroscopic subacromial decompression, including acromioplasty, resection of the coracoacromial ligament and coplaning, according to results.

Researchers identified 95 patients with subacromial impingement syndrome with or without a rotator cuff tear and with or without calcific deposits who underwent arthroscopic subacromial decompression, including acromioplasty, resection of the coracoacromial ligament and coplaning without cuff repair, and had a mean follow-up of 19.9 years. Researchers used the Constant score to assess shoulder function.
