To compare the clinical outcomes following conservative treatment and arthroscopic repair in patients with a rotator cuff tear.
The effectiveness of conservative treatment is not inferior to arthroscopic repair for patients >50 years old with a less than medium-sized rotator cuff tear in a 1-year follow-up period. Further study is warranted to find the optimal combination of conservative treatment for a symptomatic rotator cuff tear.
