Comparative Effectiveness of Nonoperative and Operative Treatments for Rotator Cuff Tears
Comparative Effectiveness of Postoperative Rehabilitation for Rotator Cuff Tears
Eleven studies evaluated postoperative rehabilitation protocols following surgery (10 comparative, 1 uncontrolled). Three compared continuous passive motion with physical therapy vs. physical therapy alone. For postoperative rehabilitation, studies included a median of 61 participants (interquartile range [IQR]: 36 to 79.5) with a median age of 58.0 years (IQR: 56.3 to 60.8). Males comprised an average of 58.9 percent of study participants.
