Translational Research on Orthobiologics in the Treatment of Rotator Cuff Disease: From the Laboratory to the Operating Room.

Rotator cuff disease is one of the most common human tendinopathies and can lead to significant shoulder dysfunction. Despite efforts to improve symptoms in patients with rotator cuff tears and healing rates after rotator cuff repair, high rates of failed healing and persistent shoulder morbidity exist. Increasing interest has been placed on the utilization of orthobiologics-scaffolds, cell-based augmentation, platelet right plasma (platelet-rich plasma), and small molecule-based strategies-in the management of rotator cuff disease and the augmentation of rotator cuff repairs. This is a complex topic that involves novel treatment strategies, including patches/scaffolds, small molecule-based, cellular-based, and tissue-derived augmentation techniques. Ultimately, translational research, with a particular focus on preclinical models, has allowed us to gain some insights into the utility of orthobiologics in the treatment of rotator cuff disease and will continue to be critical to our further understanding of the underlying cellular mechanisms moving forward.
