Abstract

In two randomized patient groups with painful shoulder syndrome and impingement, pain, mobility and working capacity were investigated some 14, 90 and 360 days after a single injection of either Mepivacain Hydrochloride alone or in combination with 20 mg of Triamcinolone Hexaacetonide. Superiority of the combination therapy was found to be statistically significant with regard to pain levels, and very likely with regard to shoulder mobility as well as restoration or preservation of working capacity.
