Materials and Methods: Twenthy-one cases of arthroscopically repaired full thickness tear of rotator cuffs were studied. Between October 1998 to July 2002 we have analysed 21 repairs of FTRCT, the average age 54(42~74) years old, mean follow-up was 24(12~41) months. We analyzed the results statistically by paired t-test. Results: Postoperative VAS of pain improved average 7.2 to 1.9, UCLA score improved 13.9 to 31.9, ADL improved 11.5 to 25.5 respectively(all, P<0.001). Eighty-seventh % of the patients showed excellent & good results at the final follow-up. The satisfied rate was 90.5%(19cases).
