A shoulder separation is an injury to the acromioclavicular joint on the top of the shoulder. The shoulder joint is formed at the junction of three bones: the collarbone (clavicle), the shoulder blade (scapula), and the arm bone (humerus). A shoulder separation occurs where the clavicle and the scapula come together.
Stryker received FDA clearance of its biodegradable InSpace balloon implant which replaces the need for complicated rotator cuff surgeries by restoring subacromial space in the shoulder, according to a company press release.
Dead arm syndrome is a condition that affects the shoulder. It’s caused by repeated movements, which place stress on the joint.
