BACKGROUND Treatment of partial thickness supraspinatus tendon tears is controversial with no clearly defined treatment algorithms based on severity of tears. This study aims to evaluate the relationship between depth of partial thickness tears and strain. METHODS Bursal-sided partial thickness tears were created at 1 mm increments in depth at the anterior portion of the supraspinatus tendon to 3/4 tendon width on ten fresh-frozen shoulder specimens. The supraspinatus muscle was dynamically… CONTINUE READING
