Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Shoulder arthroscopy. Image 2 of 4. Arthroscopic procedure being carried out on the shoulder of a patient affected by calcific tendinitis. Calcific tendinitis occurs when deposits of hydroxyapatite (crystalline calcium phosphate) form in a tendon, causing pain and inflammation. This usually occurs in the tendons of the rotator cuff (shoulder), but can occur in any tendon of the body. Arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure (keyhole surgery). A fibre optic camera sends images to a screen (upper left), which is used to guide surgery of the affected area. Here it will be used to remove the calcified deposits from the joint.
