Background: One of the common problems of the shoulder is rotator cuff tear. The treatment decision for symptomatic full-thickness cuff tears seems largely based on the physician’s personal experience and Level III and IV evidence, as high-quality data for guiding treatment is limited. We aim to evaluate the evidence available in recent literature, for the efficacy of various surgical modalities.
