    OBJECTIVE: Loose surgical tacks in the shoulder joint are a potential cause of new-onset shoulder pain after arthroscopic repair of an anterior-to-posterior lesion of the superior labrum. We report the MR imaging appearance of loose surgical tacks in this anatomic location. CONCLUSION: MR imaging is valuable in the evaluation of postoperative shoulder pain. Synovitis is a commonly considered clinical diagnosis; our report illustrates that loose tacks are another potential complication after shoulder surgery
