This ACE Report is a summary of a conference presentation or abstract. The information provided has limited the ability to provide an accurate assessment of the risk of bias or the overall quality. Please interpret the results with caution as trials may be in progress and select results may have been presented.


One hundred and two patients from 2012 to 2018 with massive rotator cuff tears were randomized to receive a latissimus dorsi tendon transfer or a rotator cuff repair. The outcome of interest was acromiohumeral distance, which was assessed at 6, 12 and 24 months post-operation. Results revealed no significant difference in acromiohumeral distance between the two groups at all time-points.
