Rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy is a common condition caused by the presence of calcification into the rotator cuff or in the subacromial-subdeltoid bursa. The pathogenetic mechanism of this pathology is still debated. Calcific tendinitis frequently affects the rotator cuff and may cause shoulder pain and reduction of range of motion. It can be diagnosed with conventional radiography, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance imaging. The first therapeutic option includes conservative management based on rest, physical therapy, and oral non-steroid anti-inflammatory admini­stration. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a noninvasive technique that can be useful for the fragmentation of calcific deposits. Imaging-guided percutaneous irrigation is currently considered the gold standard technique for the treatment of calcific tendinitis due to its minimal invasiveness and its success rate of about 80%.
