Patients continued to experienced sleep disturbance at 24 months after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, especially patients who used narcotic pain medication, according to results.

Luke Austin, MD, and colleagues collected patient outcomes using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) score, simple shoulder test, VAS for pain and single assessment numeric evaluation (SANE) for 56 patients who underwent arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and had a 2-year follow-up. Researchers compared the newly obtained scores with previous scores that ranged from preoperatively to 6 months postoperatively.
