An in-vitro study of rotator cuff tear and repair kinematics using single- and double-row suture anchor fixation

PURPOSE Double-row suture anchor fixation of the rotator cuff was developed to reduce repair failure rates. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of simulated rotator cuff tears and subsequent repairs using single- and double-row suture anchor fixation on three-dimensional shoulder kinematics. It was hypothesized that both single- and… CONTINUE READING
