Abstract

Calcifying Tendinitis (CT) shoulder a self limiting disorder characterized by deposition of calcium salts in rotator cuff muscles. The main symptom being pain followed by activity restriction resolving on its own in most cases. Symptomatic patients are initially managed by NSAIDs, Physiotherapy, Corticosteroid injections. ESWT involves acoustic waves causing fragmentation of deposits with pain releif. Ultrasound guided needling barbotage have shown promising results. Arthroscopic excision remains the definitive management for patients associated with complications as cuff tear and for uncomplicated patients. In calcifying tendinitis the initial evaluation, maintenance of function and appropriate choice of treatment modalities determines the prognosis
