Arthroscopic debridement and acromioplasty versus mini-open repair in the management of significant partial-thickness tears of the rotator cuff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Treatment options for partial-thickness rotator cuff tears have included debridement and acromioplasty or open repair. The outcome of these two treatments has been difficult to assess from the literature. The results of a retrospective review of arthroscopic versus open treatment are reviewed with recommendations for a treatment algorithm.
