Abstract

Patients with spinoglenoid notch cyst associated with superior labrum anterior-to-posterior (SLAP) lesions were evaluated. The patients were all treated by arthroscopic cyst decompression combined with SLAP repair. The hypothesis of the study was that the patients who underwent prolonged conservative treatment period prior to surgery would exhibit significant infraspinatus hypotrophy and weakness, and their postoperative clinical and functional outcomes would be less satisfactory.
