What Are Shoulder Pain Pumps?

Shoulder pain pumps are small, flexible, plastic catheters that are temporarily attached to the shoulder joint. Pain medication is then pumped through the catheter and delivered directly to the joint. In addition to providing direct relief, the pumps have also been shown to increase the effectiveness of other pain medication used during the arthroscopic procedure.

Doctors have used shoulder pain pumps for years as the preferred method of pain management.

Shoulder Pain Pumps Linked to PAGCL

Recent studies have linked shoulder pain pumps to painful side effects and an often-debilitating condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL). PAGCL is characterized by the deterioration of shoulder cartilage, possibly as the result of the shoulder pain pumps delivering such a high concentration of painkillers to the shoulder joint. PAGCL can cause permanent shoulder damage.

Symptoms of PAGCL include:

No cure exists for PAGCL. The only option for treatment is more surgery. However, often surgery cannot fully repair the shoulder joint damage. Many people who suffer PAGCL are never able to regain full shoulder use and movement.
