Partial-thickness cuff tears (PTCTs) are increasingly recognized as a source of pain and athletic impairment, especially in overhead athletes. 1,2 Improvements in diagnostic imaging have enhanced the ability to detect and quantify partial cuff disease, and arthroscopic advances have led to novel techniques by which partial cuff tears can be repaired. 2-6 Despite increasing recognition and improved understanding of this condition, the natural history, clinical evaluation, and management of… CONTINUE READING
