This study will include a consecutive series of patients who met the study inclusion criteria. Study group patients will be diagnosed RC tear on clinical examination and imaging findings (US and MRI) that will be verified at arthroscopy in order to complete the enrollment.
Control group will include patients suffering from shoulder instability that scheduled for elective surgical repair.
- cytokines and MMP's levels in patients with RC pathology and in control group [ Time Frame: 12 month ]
- Levels of pain curve by using Visual Analogue Scale [ Time Frame: 12 month ]
