The rotator cuff (RC) is the primary dynamic stabilizer of the glenohumeral joint and dysfunction can lead to abnormal joint kinematics through loss of force couples, deterioration of shoulder function, and ultimately cartilage degeneration and cuff arthropathy. Full-thickness RC tendon tears are common, occurring in >20% of the adult population, and when non-operative management fails, surgical repair is often performed. Although muscle fibrosis and tendon degeneration are important variables t...
