Rotator interval should be as loose as possible, though not so loose as to break the shoulder mechanism. This region is a source of significant shoulder pathology resulting in patient discomfort and dysfunction. The clinical features fall into two categories. Rotator interval tightness is associated with impingement, contracture with adhesive capsulitis, and widening with anteroinferior, posterior or multidirectional instability. Coracoid impingement can cause damage to the structures of the rotator interval, Injury of the interval are associated with subscapularis tears as well as biceps tendinitis, fraying, subluxation, and dislocation. An understanding of the normal and pathologic anatomy can lead to successful diagnosis and treatment of lesions in the rotator interval.
