PURPOSE The main objective of this retrospective study was to analyze the rate and modes of failure of latissimus dorsi transfer (LDT). The secondary objective was to evaluate whether a rupture of the transfer was associated with a worse outcome. METHODS During a 2-year period, we performed consecutive LDTs either for irreparable posterior-superior rotator cuff tears (RCTs) or for failed prior repair. All the LDTs were performed by a single surgeon. All transfers were arthroscopically… CONTINUE READING
