The purpose of this study was to clarify the stress distribution in the rotator cuff tendon with 3 types of partial-thickness tears by use of 2-dimensional finite element analysis. In the finite element model of the normal human shoulder, a tendon defect was created on the articular surface, on the bursal surface, or in the midsubstance close to the insertion. A tensile force was applied to the proximal end of the tendon, and the stress distribution was calculated. In all 3 types of tears, a… CONTINUE READING
