Considerable advances have been made in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (ARCR) over the last decade and excellent results have been achieved. Although recent studies have shown that functional outcomes after ARCR are comparable with those after open or miniopen repair, further refinements that could improve the clinical outcome of ARCR have been widely debated. Various factors can affect the clinical results, some medical, such as operative technique and preoperative and postoperative management, and others patient-related, such as tear size and the presence of diabetes or preoperative contracture. Though efforts have been focused on resolving the medical factors, patient-related factors should also be addressed.
