To evaluate the integrity of repair & technical tip in use of Massive Cuff Stitch at arthroscopic repair of
rotator cuff tear.
Materials and Methods: Twenthy-nine cases of arthroscopically repaired full thickness tear of rotator cuffs which
are medium sized were evaluated. Between December 2004 to September 2005 we have studied, the average age
53(42~69) years old, mean follow-up was 15(12~21) months. We analyzed the results statistically by paired t-test.
The integrity of repair were verified by follow up MRI which were checked 11 cases and ultrasound which were
checked 10 cases.
Results: VAS of pain improved preoperative average 7.1 to postoperative 0.9, ADL improved 11.2 to 25.6 respectively,
UCLA improved 13.7 to 32.9(all, P<0.05). 89.7% showed excellent & good results at the final follow-up. The
satisfied rate was 93.1%(27 cases). There was re-rupture of the repaired rotator cuff in one case out of 11 cases which
were checked by MRI, and in one case out of 10 cases which were checked by ultrasound, and there was one case of
thinning of cuff which were checked by ultrasound.
Conclusion: The use of Massive Cuff Stitch in arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff tear have been reduced technical
failure. It will be good surgical technique which maintain the integrity of repairs.
