Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair With Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in Medium to Large Rotator Cuff Tears
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical and anatomical outcomes of rotator cuff repair with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and conventional rotator cuff repair in treatment of medium to large rotator cuff tears.
PRP application to arthroscopic rotator cuff repair would accelerate recovery after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair in terms of pain relief, functional outcomes, overall satisfaction, and enhance structural integrity of repaired tendon.
Constant-Murley shoulder score [ Time Frame: Postoperative 3months ]
The Constant score assesses pain, function, ROM, and strength. Pain is allotted a maximum of 15 points, activities of daily living (function)20 points, ROM 40 points, and strength 25 points. The component scores are summated to achieve a maximum possible total score of 100.
