BACKGROUND Double-row arthroscopic rotator cuff repair has become more popular, and some studies have shown better footprint coverage and improved biomechanics of the repair. HYPOTHESIS Double-row rotator cuff repair leads to superior cuff integrity and early clinical results compared with single-row repair. STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1. METHODS Forty patients were randomized to either single-row or double-row rotator cuff repair at the time of surgical… CONTINUE READING
