Rotator cuff tears are a common shoulder pathology and are hypothesized to relate to excessive tissue deformation. Few data exist, however, describing deformation of the rotator cuff as an intact, functional unit. Our purpose was to determine regional variations of intratendinous rotator cuff strain over a range of clinically relevant joint positions. A novel, MRI-based technique was utilized to quantify intratendinous strains in cadaveric shoulder specimens at 15 degrees, 30 degrees, 45… CONTINUE READING
