BARBOTAGE OF CALCALIFICATION OF THE ROTATOR CONE TENDON OF THE SHOULDER JOINT
A therapeutic method commonly used in the world, which is a causal and not symptomatic treatment, is the washing out of calcifications from the rotator cuff. This technique is referred to in the literature as barbotage. It involves rinsing out and then aspirating the calcifications using a needle with a syringe. The procedure is performed only under ultrasound guidance and lasts several minutes. Typically, local anesthesia is used and after the procedure, a steroid
blockade may be administered depending on the coexisting inflammation.
The duration of the entire treatment is about 6-8 weeks.
