[Article in German]


Several nerve compression syndromes have been described in the literature involving compression of the axillary nerve in the quadrangular space and most importantly compression of the suprascapular nerve in the suprascapular as well as the spinoglenoid notch. This article describes the arthroscopic techniques of nerve decompression around the shoulder.
