ABSTRACT
Twenty patients were followed for 3 years (range 14 months to 6.3 years), after subacromial arthroscopic decompression, utilizing the technique described by Caspari. The age of the patients ranged from 22 to 72 with a mean of 49.35 years all operated by the same surgeon. The UCLA reporting system showed an improvement of pain in all the patients except two. The points obtained by 75 % of the patients were excellent with this system. And the preoperative pain from a 2 classification improved to 10 in the majority of the patients. The technique indicates a complete and total recovery of the previous symptomatology in these patients, and does not deteriorate with time.
