Decreasing glenoid inclination improves function in shoulders with simulated massive rotator cuff tears.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A massive rotator cuff tear leads to poor shoulder function as evidenced by diminished glenohumeral abduction and superior translation of the humeral head compared to its normal position. The inclination angle of the glenoid has been associated with rotator cuff tears. The objective of this study was to quantify the effect of a decreased glenoid… (More)
