Background: Retear of repaired rotator cuff tendons worsens patient outcome and decreases patient satisfaction. Superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) was developed to center the humeral head and thus restore the force couple for patients with rotator cuff tears. Purpose: To evaluate whether SCR for reinforcement before arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) improves cuff integrity. Study Design: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. Methods: Thirty-four consecutive patients (mean age, 69.1 years… CONTINUE READING
