BACKGROUND Rotator cuff repair has a relatively high (20%-90%) chance of retears. Patients with an intact rotator cuff 6 months after surgery have better subjective and objective outcomes at 6 months and 2 years after rotator cuff repair than those who do not have an intact repair. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine if, and if so which, intraoperative factors predict an intact repair 6 months after rotator cuff repair. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
