The purpose of this study was to compare early postoperative outcomes between arthroscopic and mini-open repair for rotator cuff tears smaller than 3 cm to determine whether arthroscopic repair causes less postoperative pain and allows for faster recovery of range of motion. Sixty patients scheduled for rotator cuff repair were randomized to either an arthroscopic repair group (30 patients) or a mini-open repair group (30 patients). Pain level, range of motion, shoulder stiffness, and…

Comparative Study between Arthroscopic and Mini Open Rotator Cuff Repair

Mini-open and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair both improved the function of patients, who failed nonoperative treatment, but there is no statistical or clinically important difference in function between the two surgical approaches according to ASES score at 6 months postoperatively but arthropscopic earlier improvement in pain and functional out come.

Arthroscopic versus mini-open rotator cuff repair: a prospective, randomized study with 24-month follow-up

Based on the results obtained, it can be indicated that arthroscopic and mini-open rotator cuff repair displayed substantially equal outcomes, except for higher retearing rate in the ar Throscopic repair group.

Comparison of clinical outcomes in all-arthroscopic versus mini-open repair of rotator cuff tears

The AA procedure has better recovery at short-term follow-ups, while both techniques are equivalent regarding long-term outcomes, and joint exercising at least 3 times per week was associated with better short- and long- term joint function recovery.

Evaluation of long-term postoperative outcomes between mini-open and arthroscopic repair for isolated supraspinatus tears: a retrospective analysis

It is suggested that isolated supraspinatus tears can be treated with a MO or arthroscopic repair procedure with similar clinical outcome in the long-term postoperative period.

Study of Functional Outcome in Terms of Pain and Range of Movements in Degenerative Rotator Cuff Tear by Transosseous Sutures in Elderly

Introduction: The surgical treatment of Rotator cuff repair ranges from open to arthroscopic assisted mini open repair to full arthroscopic repair. The anterior approach or lateral deltoid approach

Effects of arthroscopic vs. mini-open rotator cuff repair on function, pain & range of motion. A systematic review and meta-analysis

The effects of arthroscopic compared to mini-open rotator cuff repair, on function, pain and range of motion are too small to be clinically important at 3-, 6- and 12-month follow ups.

Gender Affects Early Postoperative Outcomes of Rotator Cuff Repair

Women had more pain and slower recovery of shoulder motion than men during the first 3 months after rotators cuff repair, which can serve as guidelines for pain management and rehabilitation after surgery and can help explain postoperative recovery patterns to patients with scheduled rotator cuff repair.

Effectiveness of open and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (UKUFF): a randomised controlled trial.

There is no evidence of difference in effectiveness between open and arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff tears, and the rate of re-tear is high in both groups, for all sizes of tear and ages and this adversely affects the outcome.

Open Rotator Cuff Tear Repair Using Deltopectoral Approach

The deltopectoral approach for open rotator cuff repair produced satisfactory results and reduces rate of shoulder stiffness and postoperative pain.

Arthroscopic vs mini-open rotator cuff repair. A quality of life impairment study

It is suggested that there is no difference in terms of subjective and objective outcomes between the two surgical procedures studied if patients have rotator cuff tears of less than 3 cm.

Outcomes of arthroscopic versus open rotator cuff repair: a systematic review of the literature.

There is no statistically significant difference in postoperative ASES, UCLA, or pain scores or incidence of recurrent rotator cuff tears in rotator cuffs repaired all-arthroscopically versus using the mini-open technique, however, there might be decreased short-term pain in patients who undergo arthroscopic repairs.

The results of arthroscopic versus mini-open repair for rotator cuff tears at mid-term follow-up

There was a significant improvement from pre-operative status in shoulder pain, shoulder function as measured on the Simple Shoulder test and UCLA Shoulder Form and both active and passive glenohumeral joint range of motion improved significantly fromPre-operatively.

Prospective randomised comparison of arthroscopic versus mini-open rotator cuff repair of the supraspinatus tendon

ROM, MRI findings and the scores were similar after six months, demonstrating that both techniques are equivalent regarding the outcome in this period, and indirectly indicating less pain, but higher pain scores in the later course compared to the MO group.

Mini-open versus all-arthroscopic rotator cuff repair: Comparison of the operative costs and the clinical outcomes

ARCR yields similar clinical results but at a higher cost compared with MORCR, suggesting that the ARCR group cost more, leaving less profit.

Arthroscopic versus mini-open salvage repair of the rotator cuff tear: outcome analysis at 2 to 6 years' follow-up.

Arthroscopic repair of medium and large full-thickness rotator cuff tears had an equal outcome to technically unsuccessful arthroscopy repairs, which were salvaged by conversion to a mini-open repair technique.
