Left Shoulder Impingement Syndrome with Arthroscopic Decompression Surgery - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts left shoulder impingement syndrome with arthroscopic decompression surgery. The exhibit begins with an anterior skeletal view of the left shoulder region illustrating the pre-operative condition. This image shows the overgrowth of the anterior aspect of the acromion causing compression of the underlying bursal tissue and supraspinatus rotator cuff tendon. A square drawn around the region of the AC joint corresponds with two enlarged views of this area of her injury. These two square insets compare normal anatomy with the pre-operative condition. Also, three steps of the arthroscopic decompression procedure are illustrated. The steps shown are the insertion of instruments, the removal of the bursa and the debriding of the acromion.
