|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Rotator Cuff Tear||Procedure: porcine small intestine submucosa (SIS)||Phase 4|
Objective of the full randomized trial To compare the effectiveness of a standardized method of rotator cuff repair with or without augmentation using porcine small intestine submucosa (SIS) in patients with large rotator cuff tears.
Objectives of the pilot study
- To obtain a preliminary estimate of the likely success of SIS.
- To formally evaluate our ability to successfully recruit eligible patients into this study.
- To determine appropriate length of follow up through examination of the pattern of incremental improvement and stabilization of quality of life over time following rotator cuff repair.
- To determine a more accurate estimation of sample size for the full trial using quality of life.
- To determine the frequency with which surgeons comply with the surgical protocol.
- To determine the frequency with which patients and physiotherapists comply with the suggested physiotherapy protocol.
