Abstract
PURPOSE
To introduce mini-open rotator cuff repair using the anterolateral approach and evaluate its clinical outcomes and effectiveness. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 59 consecutive cases of rotator cuff tearing which were treated with mini-open repair utilizing the anterolateral approach were evaluated. The population comprised 39 men and 20 women, with an average age of 56.6 years. An average follow-up time period was 26 months. Clinical outcomes were analyzed based on VAS, ADL, and ASES scores.
RESULTS
The average respective VAS, ADL, and ASES scores improved from 7.04, 12.37, and 35.32 preoperatively to 1.02, 27.20, and 90.08 postoperatively (p=0.000). There were 41 excellent, 11 good, 2 fair, and 5 poor results. There were satisfactory results in 52 cases (88.1%). There were no statistically significant differences between the final ASES scores and age, sex, duration of symptoms, tear size, and preoperative stiffness (p>0.05).
CONCLUSION
Mini-open rotator cuff repair using the anterolateral approach effective in providing better visualization.
Key Words: Rotator cuff tear; Mini-open; Anterolateral approach
