Advances in the Treatment of Rotator Cuff Tears
Edited by Brian C. Werner

The issue opens with a very thorough review of the natural history of rotator cuff disease and indications for conservative and operative treatment. This segues very nicely into an update on imaging modalities for rotator cuff disease and an updated review of injections and biologics for the conservative treatment of rotator cuff disease. The issue then transitions into the numerous operative options for treatment of full-thickness tears, including those arthroscopic options, augmentation, superior capsular reconstruction, tendon transfers, balloon spacers, revision rotator cuff repairs, and reverse arthroplasty. There is also a separate article detailing the management of rotator cuff tears in athletes. The issue finishes by discussing rehabilitation and return to sport after rotator cuff repair.
