Background: It is not known whether an anterior, posterior or superior approach using the Neviaser portal is more accurate for glenohumeral joint injections. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of the palpation-guided technique and compare the three different approaches. Methods: Palpation-guided glenohumeral joint injections were performed in 48 shoulders (24 cadavers) by two operators. Each shoulder was injected by three different approaches with a different coloured latex solution. The three approaches included the anterior, posterior and superior methods. The accuracy and location of unsuccessful injections were assessed through dissection of the shoulders. Results: Poster..View full abstract
