BENITEZ PAREJA, D.; TRINIDAD MARTIN-ARROYO, J. M.; BENITEZ PAREJA, P.  and  TORRES MORERA, L. M.. Ultrasound-assisted and interventionism study of shoulder joint. Rev. Soc. Esp. Dolor [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.5, pp.264-272. ISSN 1134-8046.

Painful shoulder is an entity that we find in our daily practice with relative frequency. With the introduction of ultrasound, opens a new field that we can explore, locate and exactly infiltrate the injured area. Ultrasound allows an exploration in the same act, as well as the ability to make a dynamic scanning. The shoulder is made up of 5 joint: true 3 (sternoclavicular, acromioclavicular and glenohumeral) and 2 known as false (subacromial and thoracic scapula). Wherever possible, we will try to puncture in plane, trying to display the full path of the needle and the tip of it. In the interventionism of the shoulder, this is quite easy to get since it's very superficial structures. It is highly unlikely any serious damage during the infiltration of the shoulder. Take special care of non piercing vascular structures.
