Redefining anterior shoulder impingement: a literature review

Published in International Orthopaedics. 2017
Abstract Many different types of impingements have been described in the shoulder. Inasmuch as the term 'shoulder impingement' usually refers to subacromial impingement, anterior impingement usually refers to subcoracoid impingement. However, there are many different subtypes of anterior impingements in the shoulder, and awareness of their existence is critical as they vary in their nature and treatment. Recent advances in biomechanical research and arthroscopic exploration of the anterior structures of the shoulder have brought new insights on the various potential impingements, warranting a revision and update of the current definitions of anterior shoulder impingement. The purpose of this article is to propose a comprehensive review and classification of all different subtypes of anterior impingement in the shoulder, including newly described entities.
