Arthroscopic Treatment of Concomitant Superior Labral Anterior Posterior (SLAP) Lesions and Rotator Cuff Tears in Patients over the age of 45 Years

This landmark study evaluated patients over the age of 45 years who had concomitant superior labral anterior posterior (SLAP) lesions and rotator cuff tears.  Using the Tegner and UCLA score, the study showed in patients over the age of 45 years with a minimally retracted rotator cuff tear and associated SLAP lesion, arthroscopic repair of the rotator cuff with combined debridement of the type II SLAP lesion may provide greater patient satisfaction and functional outcome in terms of pain relief and motion. This paper was published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine (#1 Orthopaedic Peer-Reviewed Journal based on Impact Factor).
