MIYAZAKI, Alberto Naoki et al. Are the good functional results from arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff injuries maintained over the long term?. Rev. bras. ortop. [online]. 2016, vol.51, n.1, pp.40-44. ISSN 0102-3616.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rboe.2015.12.009.

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate whether the good and excellent functional results from arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tears are maintained over the long term.

METHODS:

From the sample of the study conducted by our group in 2006, in which we evaluated the functional results from arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tears, 35 patients were reassessed, 8 years after the first evaluation. The inclusion criteria were that these patients with massive rotator cuff tears operated by means of an arthroscopic technique, who participated in the previous study and achieved good or excellent outcomes according to the UCLA criteria. Patients whose results were not good or excellent in the first evaluation according to the UCLA criteria were excluded.

RESULTS:

Among the 35 patients reassessed, 91% of them continued to present good and excellent results (40% excellent and 51% good), while 3% presented fair results and 6% poor results. The time interval between the first and second evaluations was 8 years and the minimum length of follow-up since the immediate postoperative period was 9 years (range: 9-17 years), with an average of 11.4 years.

CONCLUSION:

The good and excellent results from arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tears were mostly maintained (91%), with the same level of function and satisfaction, even though 8 years had passed since the first assessment, with a follow-up period averaging 11.4 years.
