Calcific Tendinitis
Calcifying tendonitis is a painful shoulder condition, when there is a build-up of calcium deposit (chalk) within the “Cuff” tendons around the ball of the shoulder. Often you can see the deposit which is very obvious in an X-ray of the shoulder.

This build-up will cause increase in pressure within the tendon associated with chemical irritation and inflammation. The combination of the deposit and inflammation reduce the space between the rotator cuff and the acromion. This can lead to Subacromial Impingement Syndrome.

The patient would have symptoms very similar to Subacromial Impingement Syndrome. At times, the pain can be extremely intense with sever loss of the use of the shoulder.

The treatment options are again similar to Subacromial Impingement Syndrome. If the tablets/injections are not helpful for the patient, and/or the pain is extremely severe with night pain, the keyhole surgery would be the next option. The aim of the operation is to remove all or part of the calcium deposit as well as to perform “Subacromial Decompression”.

The operation can be done usually as a Day-Surgery case. The recovery from the operation is relatively quick. Further detailed information would be provided during the consultation with Mr. Khalid Ayoub. Back...
