Özet

Hypothesis: The purpose of this study is to report and compare the outcome of arthroscopic capsular release in patients with shoulder stiffness with post-traumatic, postsurgical, and idiopathic etiologies. We hypothesize that patients with idiopathic or post-traumatic stiffness have better outcomes after arthroscopic capsular release than those with shoulder stiffness with a postsurgical etiology.
