  Purpose

Few studies are considering acute traumatic rotator cuff tears in previously asymptomatic patients. The purpose of the current study was to investigate if delay of surgery, age at repair and the number of cuff tendons involved affected the structural and clinical outcomes.


Condition
Rotator Cuff Tear

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Structural and Clinical Outcomes After Repair of Acute Rotator Cuff Tears

Study Population

A retrospective review of our computerized database identified 49 patients repaired at our institution between May 2004 until May 2009 due to acute traumatic rotator cuff tears. 42 patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria, were willing to participate in a follow-up evaluation after written and oral informed consent.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • significant trauma to the shoulder
  • sudden onset of symptoms
  • asymptomatic in the shoulder before trauma
  • pseudoparalysis in the shoulder after trauma
  • full thickness rotator cuff tear of at least one tendon

Exclusion Criteria:

  • patients with previous or gradual onset of symptoms in the traumatised shoulder
  • partial rotator cuff tear
  • displaced fracture
