Very often, partial tear tendons of the superficial shoulder muscle are combined with arthrosis of the clavicular-acromial joint. This is due to violations of the shoulder-patch rhythm, which in turn leads to a chronic overload of the clavicular-acromial joint and the progression of arthrosis in this joint.

The purpose of the study is to improve the results of treatment of patients with injuries of the supraspinatus tendon against the background of deforming arthrosis of the clavicular-acromial joint.

Material and methods:
For the study a clinical group was assembled, which consisted of 84 patients with injuries of the tendon of the supraspinatus and deforming arthrosis of the clavicular-acromial joint 3–4 parts. All patients, depending on the treatment, were divided into two groups.

Results and discussion:
The consequences and influence of the arthrosis of the clavicular-acromial joint were determined. Movements of the joint were examined. The shoulder joint function was under control in the post-surgery period, which provided particular results and conclusions according to the comparative analysis of the two groups.

Based on the provided results, it can be concluded that deforming arthrosis of the clavicular acromial joint can cause contracture in the shoulder joint in patients after the suture of the tendon of the abdominal muscle.
