  • Background The most common complication of rotator cuff repair is structural failure at the repair site. A single-layer repair does not adequately reproduce the anatomic insertion and may not optimize fixation strength. Hypothesis A double-layer rotator cuff repair will have greater initial fixation strength than a single-layer repair. Study Design Controlled laboratory study. Methods Twelve fresh-frozen matched pairs of cadaveric shoulders were repaired by using dual-site fixation with both… CONTINUE READING
