Shoulder pain, may have tear in labrum. Positive O'Brien's test. How often will a labral tear not be seen in an arthrogram?
I got into an altercation at work 1 month ago which involved a lot of pushing and pulling of a subject. I immediately felt pain in my right shoulder and eventually went for an arthrogram of it. The radiologist report came back clean; however, my orthopedist thinks he may see a small tear in my labrum. I am positive for O Brien s test and still have an intermittent dull pain on the rear right side of my shoulder and an intermittent sharp pain in the front of the shoulder. I did have arthroscopic surgery in January 2011 to repair an anterior and posterior labral tears . My question is, how often will a labral tear not be seen even when an arthrogram is done and it possibly does not show a tear.
if you make x_ray is not shows ligaments or muscles or shoulder component it shows bone fractures or any problems related to bone .you should make MRI .if you made MRI and didnt shows any tear IT POSSIBLEe in 1ST 24 HOURS AFTER TRAUMA THANK U
