Abstract
PURPOSE
Coracoid impingement syndrome refers to subscapularis impingement between the coracoid process and lesser tuberosity of the humerus, and pain may occur when the arm is positioned in forward flexion, internal rotation and adduction. This position is common for archers. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A female archer with coracoid impingement syndrome that was uncontrolled by conservative therapy underwent arthroscopic subcoracoid decompression. At the 20th postoperative month of follow up, she complained of painful rotator interval widening and so she underwent arthroscopic rotator interval plication.
RESULTS
At the postoperative 6th month of follow up after the second operation, she showed no pain and good functional results, and she returned to competing as an archer.
CONCLUSION
We have reported here on a case of successful treatment of painful rotator widening after subcoracoid decompression in an elite archer.
Key Words: Shoulder; Coracoids process; Rotator interval; Coracoid impingement syndrome; Subcoracoid decompression; Rotator interval plication
