Abstract

Objective: To establish the normative ultrasound values of tendons of rotator cuff muscles in local healthy male population.

Study Design: Cross sectional study.

Place and Duration of Study: Department of Radiology, Combined Military Hospital Malir, from Oct 2019 to Mar 2020.

Methodology: The sample of study was 456 shoulders of 228 patients. All the patients went under ultrasound shoulder in standard positions. Data analyzed with statistical analysis program (‘Statistical Package for the Social Sciences” version 23).

Results: In right dominance the mean thickness of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and biceps tendons were tendon 4.63 ± 0.45 mm, 3.90 ± 0.73 mm, 4.55 ± 0.74 mm and 3.55 ± 0.54 mm respectively. The acromio-humeral interval was 12.63 ± 2.005 mm. In left dominance the mean thickness of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis and biceps tendons were 4.88 ± 0.69 mm, 4.17 ± 0.63 mm, 5.04 ± 0.26 mm and 3.62 ± 0.45 mm respectively. The acromio-humeral interval was 13.65 ± 2.98mm.

Conclusion: The study showed that there was insignificant difference between the dominant and non-dominant shoulders.
