Shoulder pain management pumps used following arthroscopic shoulder surgery have been linked to the development of a rare condition which causes the progressive destruction of cartilage in the shoulder joint. This painful and debilitating condition has no consistently successful treatment and often results in permanent shoulder pain.
The devastating condition, known as Post-Arthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL), typically manifests 3 to 12 months after shoulder surgery.
Symptoms which could develop following arthroscopic shoulder surgery include:
• Shoulder pain whether in motion or at rest;
• Clicking, popping or grinding of the shoulder;
• Shoulder stiffness or weakness;
• Decreased range of motion.
