Study: Favorable Outcomes with SCOI Row Method for RCR of Full-thickness Tears
A retrospective study published online in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders evaluated outcomes and tendon-to-bone healing after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair (RCR) of full-thickness tears using the Southern California Orthopedic Institute (SCOI) row method. Eighty-nine patients aged < 55 years received preoperative and three- and six-month postoperative MRI. Overall, patients experienced improvements in functional and pain scores and range of motion after six months. Six-month MRIs also showed intact repairs in patients’ shoulders, including footprint regeneration, indicating satisfactory tendon-to-bone healing. Mean regeneration tissue thickness was 7.35 ± 0.76 mm and 7.75 ± 0.79 mm at three months and six months, respectively. The rate of patients who reported feeling satisfied with the procedure was 93.3 percent.
