Read the Perspective from Lennard Funk, BSc MSc FRCS(Tr&Orth) FFSEM(UK)

Nonoperative management was effective in patients with chronic, full-thickness rotator cuff tears based on results of a study presented at the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Annual Meeting.

“Nonoperative treatment can be an effective option for many patients with chronic, full-thickness rotator cuff tears,” Richard S. Boorman, MD, chief of shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Calgary, Canada, said. “While some may assert [nonoperative treatment] delays inevitable surgical repair, our study shows that patients can do well over time.”
