Nonabsorbable suture knots are usually used to link the tendon and bone during rotator cuff repair surgery. There are many variations in the arthroscopic knot-tying technique; however, the location of suture knot placement for rotator cuff healing has rarely been studied.

While patient age, tear size, and muscle fatty infiltration are factors known to affect the rate of tendon healing after rotator cuff repair, the effect of tendon delamination is less known.
Rotator cuff tendon rupture after suture bridge repair occasionally occurs at the medial row, with remnant tendon tissue remaining at the footprint. While concentrated medial row stress is suspected t...
To explore the role of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) in tendon-bone healing of rotator cuff tear (RCT) and to investigate its possible mechanism.
Poor healing of the tendon-bone interface (TBI) after rotator cuff (RTC) tears leads to high rates of recurrent tear following repair. Previously, we demonstrated that an injectable, thermoresponsive,...
This study investigates if the application of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) loaded 3D-printed scaffolds could improve rotator cuff repair. The polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA)...
Suture-bridge technique has been widely used for rotator cuff tears with many studies showing superior clinical results and lower failure rates compared to other techniques. This study aim...
There are several associated structural changes when dealing with massive rotator cuff repair, which include tendon retraction and fragility, muscle atrophy and fatty infiltration, as well...
Partial-thickness and full-thickness rotator cuff tears are common soft-tissue conditions that often require surgical treatment. Initial efforts to improve tendon healing centered on impro...
This Clinical Trial is being conducted to study two adjunctive treatments for rotator cuff repair; soft tissue and bone trephination. "Trephination" is a procedure that involves making sm...
Selective cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 inhibitors are commonly used analgesics that provide similar analgesia but reduced adverse effects compared to other analgesics. However, few studies have ...
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.
Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
