Can arthroscopic rotator cuff repair prevent proximal migration of the humeral head?

Pablo Sanz-Ruiz, Fausto López-Mombiela, Javier Vaquero.

Abstract
Introduction: Shoulder arthroscopy has become increasingly used in recent years, especially in rotator cuff repair. The purpose of this study was to determine whether arthroscopic rotator cuff repair could prevent proximal migration of the humeral head.
Material and Methods: We performed a retrospective study of 56 patients suffering from shoulder pain. They were divided into two groups, one comprising patients with impingement syndrome who underwent acromioplasty only and another comprising patients with rotator cuff tear who underwent acromioplasty combined with rotator cuff repair. The pre-operative Hirooka angle and the results of the simple shoulder test (SST) were compared after 1 year.
Results: We found no differences between the groups for the Hirooka angle or SST results. We did find a significant difference (P<0.05) between pre-operative and post-operative SST results.
Conclusions: Rotator cuff repair using arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that improves function and prevents proximal migration of the humeral head after 1 year of follow-up.

Key words: Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, humeral proximal migration, rotator cuff tears, shoulder arthroscopy
