Dr. Peer van der Zwaal speaks about the use of arthroscopic versus mini-open rotator cuff repair in small to medium-sized tears.
To compare two surgical techniques, 100 patients with full thickness small to medium-sized tears were randomized to either all-arthroscopic (AA) or mini-open (MO) rotator cuff repair. A year after surgery, functional outcome, pain, range of motion, and complications improved for both groups with no statistical difference between them. Patients benefited sooner (6 weeks) with the arthroscopic proce...
