The article discusses the comparison of mini-open and all-arthroscopic techniques of rotator cuff repair with the use of a systematic review of the published literature in the U.S. It is inferred that the treatment of rotator cuff tears has evolved from an open procedure to an arthroscopic-assisted technique to all-arthroscopic technique. The author averred that the procedure has been associated with morbidity such as severe early post-operated pain, deltoid detachment, and arthrofibrosis.
