This study examined patient characteristics, treatment patterns, and response to treatment of the disease in a large series of patients with this condition. There was a significant difference between initial forward elevation and external rotation between the nonoperative and operative groups.


Pain was also assessed using the Visual Analogue Scale pain score. Patients who received surgical treatment for their adhesive capsulitis were treated nonoperatively for an average of It is unclear from this study whether this is due to a possible bias toward treating younger patients more aggressively or if younger age at initial presentation is a factor in poor prognosis.

Statistical analysis was performed with the independent t test and the Pearson 2 test. Only2ofthe19diabetic shoulders in this study required surgical management. The criteria for inclusion in the study were 1 diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis and 2 treatment by 1 of 4 shoulder surgeons at our institution from to Durationof treatmentin successfully nonoperativelytreatedpatientsaveraged3.

Only a small percentageof patientseventuallyrequireoperative treatment. There was a significant difference P. Arthroscopic appearance of frozen shoulder.

Nonoperative group Symptoms resolved in 94 The average age of these patients was 51 years range, years. Blaine, MD, and Louis U. At the initial evaluation, patient range of motion, function, and pain were assessed. All patients had complete radiographic studies of the affected shoulder, including true anteroposterior, internal and external rotation, axillary, and scapular-Y views.


Patientswho requiredsurgerywere treatedwith an averageof A significant change occurred between the initial and final range of motion for forward elevation and external rotation, but not internal rotation, in the 2 nonoperative treatment groups. This treatment includes benign neglect,10,23 oral nonsteroidalantiinflammatorydrugs NASIDs ,oralcorticosteroids,5,7 glenohumeral intraarticular corticosteroid injections,2,8,30 and physical therapy.

Evaluation At the initial evaluation, patient range of motion, function, and pain were assessed.

Patients were significantly younger in the surgical group, with the average age of 51 years compared with capuslite average of 56 years in the patients in the nonsurgical groups. Abstract Objective Qdesiva the outcomes of patients with adhesive capsulitis treated with arthroscopic surgical procedure. All patients received treatment consisting of oral NSAIDs medications and a standardized physical therapy program.

Study protocol and determination of failure Average length of treatment for all patients was 4. One of the 15 received surgical treatment with an outside physician; the remaining 14 were successfully treated nonoperatively.

A value of P. In addition, the youngestpatient in this study had type 1 diabetesmellitus and was affected bilaterally. Length of treatment for patients receiving physical therapy only capsupite an average of 3. Patients in the surgical group were treated for an average of National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

Levine, MD, Christine P. Traditionally, nonoperative management of adhesive capsulitis is recommended for a minimum of 6 months before operative intervention. There was improvement in pain and range of motion.

No significant difference was found for success of nonoperative treatment versus operative treatment or patient gender. adesva

Diercks and Stevens10 showed that supervised benign neglect also yields better outcomes for adhesive capsulitis patients than intensive physical therapy. Symptoms resolved in 94 Zuckerman J, Rokito A. Charts of patients treated at our institution for adhesive capsulitis were reviewed retrospectively. There was a significant difference between the end range of motion of the affected shoulder and the contralateral shoulder range of motion for forward elevation, external rotation, and internal rotation P.

The end range of motion for patients treated nonoperatively is listed in Table I and compared with the initial range of motion of the unaffected shoulder. Nonoperative treatment is typically adediva initially. The end points for the study were defined as resolution of symptoms with nonoperative treatment or operative treatment.

Fifteen of the 98 patients required telephone contact to assess final outcome.
