2 Possible Causes for Calcified Coracoacromial Ligament

  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

    Causes of impingement include acromioclavicular joint arthritis, calcified coracoacromial ligament, structural abnormalities of the acromion and weakness of the rotator cuff[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The coracoacromial ligament can also calcify, usually secondary to trauma, and cause impingement.[aafp.org] coracoacromial ligament Nonoutlet impingement Loss of rotator cuff causing superior migration of humerus (tear, loss of strength) Secondary impingement from unstable shoulder[aafp.org]

  • Shoulder Impingement

    Coracoplasty is also a treatment option although this entails the resection of the coracoacromial ligament 15 ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A calcified or hypertropic spinoglenoid ligament and excessive nerve angulation, when it curves entering the infraspinatus fossa, are considered important pathogenetic factors[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
