Frozen shoulder is caused by a contracture of the capsule

Counterintuitively not all patients recover completely

At arthroscopy spectacular angiogenesis is seen

Pathology shows bands and nodules of type III collagen populated by fibroblasts and myofibroblasts

Arthroscopic capsular release has improved the management of this condition.
