Rotator cuff tears are common injuries seen by orthopaedic surgeons. Management may vary depending on patient factors, size and location of tear, and severity of symptoms. Treatment for symptomatic rotator cuff tear often includes subacromial decompression, debridement, and/or repair. The objective of this study was to determine the change in glenohumeral joint (GHJ) forces after repair of pathologic supraspinatus tears.
