Bilateral symmetrical synovial chondromatosis of shoulder: a case report

Abstract: Synovial chondromatosis is a benign arthropathy rarely seen in diarthrodial joints. Extra-articular bilateral symmetrical synovial chondromatosis of shoulder is the rarest variety. The diagnosis is established with the help of imaging modalities and histopathological examinations. This report describes a case of a 39-year-old woman who presented with symmetrical, progressively increasing swelling over the bilateral shoulder region, of 12–18 months duration, with dull ache and restricted movements of the should… Show more

“… 23 24) Arthroscopic treatment of SOC has recently been reported to result in low morbidity and postoperative pain and an early return to function. 23 25 26) Furthermore, the arthroscopic technique allows for the complete visualization of the GH joint and its associated recesses, including the axillary pouch and the sheath of the LHBT; therefore, the detection and removal of loose bodies can be performed easily using multiple portals. The removal of loose bodies is essential and effective to relieve the symptoms of SOC.…”

“…25 In symptomatic patients, surgical excision of loose bodies is the preferred method of treatment, which includes open or arthroscopic loose body removal and synovectomy. 26,27 Early open or arthroscopic debridement, synovectomy, and loose body removal before articular cartilage damage showed good results, 28,29 but open debridement and loose body removal require hip dislocation, which may increase the risk of femoral head avascular necrosis in the future. The arthroscopic procedure is associated with a high rate of recurrence and incomplete debridement.…”
