Amplitude and strength of muscle contraction are reduced in experimental tears of the rotator cuff


Meyer, D C; Gerber, C; von Rechenberg, B; Wirth, S H; Farshad, M (2011). Amplitude and strength of muscle contraction are reduced in experimental tears of the rotator cuff. American Journal of Sports Medicine, 39(7):1456-1461.

Abstract

The current criteria (atrophy, retraction, and fatty infiltration) may help to quantify the structural reparability of a chronically retracted musculotendinous unit after rotator cuff tendon tear but may only approximately predict the remaining function of the muscle.
