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.
