Assessing rotator cuff integrity – MRI and Ultrasound

Assessment of rotator cuff repair integrity using ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in a multicenter study.

These authors sought to compare ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evaluation of the repaired rotator cuff to determine concordance between these imaging studies in 113 shoulders having repair with the suture bridge technique for rotator cuff tears that were between 1 and 4 cm wide.

They concluded that there was a good degree of  concordance between MRI and ultrasound readings if the individual reading the sonogram was experienced.

Comment: Unfortunately, this study does not provide data on the integrity of the cuff repairs. It would have been most interesting to see how many of the 113 cuff repairs were intact at the different time points.

 
Estos autores trataron de comparar la ecografía y la resonancia magnética (MRI) Evaluación del manguito rotador reparado para determinar la concordancia entre estos estudios de imagen en 113 hombros con la reparación con la técnica de puente de sutura para desgarros del manguito de los rotadores que estaban entre 1 y 4 cm de ancho.

Llegaron a la conclusión de que no era un buen grado de concordancia entre la RM y lecturas de ultrasonido si se vivió la persona que lee el sonograma.

Comentario: Desafortunadamente, este estudio no proporciona datos sobre la integridad de las reparaciones del manguito. Hubiera sido más interesante ver cómo muchas de las reparaciones del manguito 113 estaban intactos en los diferentes puntos de tiempo.
