Background: The partial tear of supraspinatus tendon is one of the most common cause of shoulder pain. Following the history and clinical examination, MRI is the standard diagnostic method. The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of the clinical tests and quality of function of shoulder and comparing the thickness of the supraspinatus tendon measured in ultrasound with the results of MRI performed among patients with partial tear of supraspinatus tendon.
Method: 58 patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy criteria from 2013 to 2016 entered the study. The clinical examination (Jobe، Hawkins، Neer، O'Brien، Lift Off ،Belly Press), quality of function (by DASH and WORC questionnaire), ultrasound to evaluate supraspinatus tendon thickness, and MRI were performed and data were analyzed with SPSS version 23 for association.
Findings: In our study, 58 patients were evaluated (81% female, 55.53 years mean age). The result of KS test was not significant (P=0.200). The clinical examination and quality of function and thickness of Supraspinatus tendon were not related (P > 0.05). Although the higher average thickness of supraspinatus tendon in case of partial tear of the tendon in MRI is observed, there was no significant difference (p>0.05)
Discussion: Considering the findings, in cases of partial tear of supraspinatus muscle tendon, in addition to clinical tests and functional quality evaluation, paraclinical tests such as MRI and ultrasound are necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
