The average age of patients who went on to surgery was 51 years, whereas the okbro age of patients treated nonoperatively was significantly higher at The group successfully treated nonoperatively had an average of 5. It is unclear capsulte this study whether this is due to a possible bias toward treating younger patients more aggressively or if younger age at initial presentation is a factor in poor prognosis.

Adeiva treatmentin successfully nonoperativelytreatedpatientsaveraged3. To evaluate the results of arthroscopic releases performed in patients with adhesive capsulitis refractory to conservative treatment. The average age of all patients was 5 years range, years. Additional studies should be conducted to evaluate this factor further. Traditionally, nonoperative management of adhesive capsulitis is recommended for a minimum of 6 months before operative intervention.

Final outcome with telephone call Fifteen of the 98 patients required telephone contact to assess final outcome.

Griggs et al15 reported that most patients with adhesive capsulitis can be treated successfully with a specific 4-direction shoulder-stretching exercise program. Charts of patients treated at our institution for adhesive capsulitis were reviewed retrospectively.


Length of treatment for patients receiving physical therapy only was an average of 3. This was significantly different from the length of treatment for the nonoperative group P.

Blaine, MD, and Louis U.


Of the 17 shoulders treated nonoperatively, 8 were effectively treated with physical therapy alone, and 9 were treated with physical therapy and 1 or more intraarticularcorticosteroidinjections.

This study did not show, however,that diabeticpatientswere more likely toneedsurgicalmanagement. One of the 15 received surgical treatment with an outside physician; the remaining 14 were successfully treated nonoperatively. Only2ofthe19diabetic shoulders in this study required surgical management. This was compared with the initial evaluation of the same measurements. Abstract Objective Qdesiva the outcomes of patients with adhesive capsulitis treated with arthroscopic surgical procedure.

Average range of motion decreased from the initial evaluation to the preoperative evaluation for the surgical patient group.

Patients who were initially evaluated with more limited range of motion of their shoulders were more likely to require surgical treatment. Health comorbidities, including diabetes mellitus, thyroid disorders, and cardiovascular disease, were determined, and a history of any previous shoulder obro was ascertained. There was a significant difference P. This study evaluated patient characteristics, treatment patterns, and resolution of symptoms in a large series of patients with adhesive capsulitis.

Operative indications included progressive worsening range of motion, failure to make progress after 3 consecutive visits, or residual functional impairment after 6 months or more of nonoperative treatment.

At the initial evaluation, patient range of motion, function, and pain were assessed. Tags capsulite adesiva ombro.

Bak, MD, Christopher S. Zuckerman J, Cuomo F. Table I Average end range of motion of affected shoulder compared with initial range of motion of unaffected shoulder. Patients who could not or did not return for the final follow-up evaluation were contacted by telephone to determine their most recent status.


This demonstrates that indications for surgical treatment may include either worse initial range of motion or progressively worsening range of motion through treatment. Ahmad, MD, Theodore A. There was improvement in pain and range of motion. From these charts, 98 patients shoulders were selected to be included in this Institutional Review Board— approved retrospective study. Operative group Patients who received surgical treatment for their adhesive capsulitis were treated nonoperatively for an average of A total of shoulders in 98 patients were identified with follow-up to end point.

Arthroscopic appearance of frozen shoulder.

Pain was also assessed using the Visual Analogue Scale pain score. Average length of treatment for all patients was 4. Levine, MD, Christine P.

Conclusion This study shows that the surgical treatment of adhesive capsulitis with arthroscopic capsular release and manipulation appears to be a safe procedure that results in pain relief and functional gain.

This difference was not significant P. See all images 1 Free text. No significant difference was found for success of nonoperative treatment versus operative treatment or patient gender.
