We mention this casuistry to show again the present overestimating of the meaning of calcification of the rotator cuff (also overestimating of X-ray diagnostics) at many patients. After the aspiration of a rosy synovial liquid from the glenohumeral articulation, and from the sheath of the long head of the biceps, where we applied 8 mg of Depo Medrol, a distinctive improvement of problems occurred, and therefore we think that calcification did not have any meaning for the arising of problems.
