Illustration 3 • Milling of acromion to increase subacromial space

Anatomy causes that during a lateral lifting of the arm tendons frequently ’get caught’ between acromion and humeral head (impingement syndrome). This leads to pain in the shoulder when reaching overhead. A procedure that increases the subacromial space for the tendon to glide freely remedies this problem.
