Aims and objectives: Introduction Calcifying tendinopathy of the shoulder (CFT) is a chronic condition caused by calcifications, predominantly hydroxyapatite crystal deposits, inside the rotator cuff tendons. The term tendinitis is not really appropriate, as inflammatory cells are rarely encou[...]

Methods and materials: This is a retrospective study which included 108 patients with chronic shoulder pain refractory to medical treatment and who suffered from supraspinatus calcifying tendinoapthy (SCT) without observing other sonographic conditions causing shoulder pain. These 108 patients underwent 168 were percutan[...]

Results: The descriptive statistics and the biavariate analysis between variables and chance of reconsultation can be found in Table 1. For the poisson regression, a backwards aproach was used, starting with all variables in the model, and removing those with p<0.20. We packed calcification lenght reduc[...]

Conclusion: Radiographic and sonographic features of supraspinatus calcifications could help to foresee the likelihood of undergoing more than one ultrasound-guided lavage in supraspinatus calcifying tendinopathy.   Namely, the key radiographic features that could help radiologists to forese[...]
