Rotator Cuff Augmentation: Its Role and Best Practices.

Rotator cuff tears are a common source of pain and impairment in the shoulder. Healing of the rotator cuff tendons following repair has been associated with improved patient outcomes. While there have been many technical improvements in surgical techniques for rotator cuff repair, failure rates are still surprisingly high. Augmentation of these repairs has been shown to help with fixation biomechanics as well as healing rates. The described types of augments include autograft, allograft, xenograft, and synthetic options. This report reviews the commonly available types of augments and some of the outcomes associated with their use.
