Certain metabolic factors have been proposed as risk factors for a posterosuperior rotator cuff tear. Although metabolic syndrome is of increasing concern in industrialized societies, little information exists regarding its association with posterosuperior rotator cuff tears. The purpose of this study was to determine the risk factors for an atraumatic posterosuperior rotator cuff tear, including metabolic factors and metabolic syndrome.

Massive rotator cuff tears are challenging to treat, with few or no studies on long-term outcomes of repair. The purpose of this study was to report 10-year outcomes following repair of massive poster...
Limited information is available regarding the characteristics of delaminated rotator cuff tears as compared with nondelaminated tears. Furthermore, there is conflicting information regarding the effe...
Massive and irreparable rotator cuff tears are difficult to manage surgically. One technique is to use a synthetic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) patch to bridge the tear. However, there is little inf...
The primary goal will be to compare the early postoperative recovery outcomes and complications from a series of surgical treatments for massive or irreparable rotator cuff tears. The seco...

The purpose of the investigators study is to compare the effect of: 1) physiotherapy 2) arthroscopic acromioplasty and debridement or 3) arthroscopic rotator cuff reconstruction and acromi...
Massive rotator cuff tears accounts for 30% of all rotator cuff tears. These problems can be solved by surgeries, but only part of them can be completely repaired. The prognosis for partia...
Do concomitant subscapularis tears in large to massive rotator cuff tears affect postoperative functional and structural outcomes? Background and purpose: The subscarpularis tendon...
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.
Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.
The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.
Death of a bone or part of a bone, either atraumatic or posttraumatic.
