The reported functional results of rotator cuff repair performed arthroscopically have been good. Only little is known about the cuff integrity after arthroscopic repair and how it influences the outcome. The aim of the study is to set a baseline of what rate of healing response respectively re-tears to expect and how cuff integrity alters the outcome. Fifty-three consecutive patients with an isolated supraspinatus tendon tear were arthroscopically operated and their tendons repaired. All pre… CONTINUE READING
