|Abstract:||The critical shoulder angle (CSA: angle between the superior and inferior bony glenoid margins and the most inferolateral point of the acromion) is a new clinical instrument combining the acromion index and glenoid inclination in a single, simple to measure radiological index. It has a high potential to discriminate between shoulders associated to rotator cuff tears (RCT, if CSA>35°) and osteoarthritis (OA, if CSA<30°) or being asymptomatic for CSA in between. However, the biomechanical background has not yet been understood.|
