Although this particular lesion was not repairable because of its musculotendinous failure pattern, knowledge that this variation of Fosbury flop tear can occur and identifying it on preoperative imaging may avoid extensive damage to the tendon when carrying out a routine rotator interval and subcoracoid clearing during the first intra-articular step.
have shown that a posterior offset creates a more anatomical tension in the muscles, but the disadvantage is that there can be a subacromial or subcoracoid conflict in extreme rotation or anterior elevation [72, 74].
Test Mechanism Sensitivity Specificity (%) (%) Wright's test Compression of the 90 29 (hyperabduction neuro-vascular maneuver) structures in the subcoracoid region.

Criteria for extravasation would normally include any space that does not communicate with the joint; however, we excluded bursal spaces in our analysis, such as the subdeltoid/subacromial bursa and subcoracoid bursa, which would have other clinical ramifications, and we ensured that none of the cases demonstrated overdistension of the joint where anterior leakage could obfuscate the diagnosis of true pathological extravasation.
The diagnosis of bilateral shoulder dislocation with brachial plexus injury was made on clinical examination and the finding on a plain radiograph that both humeral heads were in a subcoracoid position (Fig.
TOS is one such general term used for problems stemming from nerve or blood vessel compression in their passage from the cervical area toward the axilla and proximal arm either at the interscalene triangle, the costoclavicular triangle, or the subcoracoid space.
Quantitative criteria: (i) a coracohumeral ligament thickness of 4 mm or more, (ii) thickness of capsule at the rotator cuff interval of 7 mm or more; qualitative criteria: (i) an abnormal coracohumeral ligament, (ii) obliteration of the subcoracoid fat triangle, and (iii) synovitis-like abnormality at superior border of subscapularis tendon.
* Medial rotation assessed in 90 degrees of flexion, the Hawkins' impingement test (Hawkins and Bokor 1990), compresses both the subacromial and subcoracoid spaces.
