64 patients were randomized to receive a rotator cuff repair with either maximum bridge suture tension or optimal bridge suture tension. The outcomes of interest included range of motion, pain and anatomical healing. The results from the study found no significant differences between groups in range of motion or pain at 1 year. The rate of healing failure was significantly higher in the optimal gr...
