OBJECTIVE This study investigated the initial strength and failure mode of different rotator cuff repair techniques. BACKGROUND Full or partial re-rupture of the repair is one of the main post-operative complications for rotator cuff repair. The rate of failure is strongly affected by the extension of the tear, increasing in case of large or massive tears up to 62%. DESIGN The study was planned to assess the three individual components of the tendon-to-bone repair (tendon grasping, suture… CONTINUE READING
