Functional Outcomes after Arthroscopic Single Row Rotator Cuff Repair: A Retrospective Study of 40 Cases

This retrospective study was conducted at Vaishvi orthopaedic hospital on 40 patients aged between 40 years to 73 years with rotator cuff tear, treated with arthroscopic single row rotator cuff repair between July 2013 to January 2017. Diagnosis was based on true AP radiograph and magnetic resonance imaging of affected shoulder. Patients were followed up for minimum of 6 months with mean follow up of 15.84 months. Pre and post operative rehabilitation protocols were given equal importance with compulsory minimum 4 months post operative rehabilitation and physiotherapy. The results and outcomes were assessed with the use of constant shoulder score and WORC (Western Ontario Rotator Cuff) index. Factors affecting the functional outcomes were also evaluated.
