BACKGROUND Active range of motion deficit is one of the alleged negative influencing factors of rotator cuff repair. Recently, with the popularity of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA), there is a tendency toward performing RTSA in cases of nonarthritic large-to-massive tears with pseudoparalysis. HYPOTHESIS Rotator cuff repair in patients with active motion deficit may yield inferior outcome. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS Among 195 complete repairs of… CONTINUE READING
