Differential growth on sutures of tendon cells derived from torn human rotator cuff.

Abstract:

Rotator cuff tendon pathology is proposed to account for 30-70% of all shoulder pain and surgical repair with a nonabsorbable suture is the common option for painful rotator cuff tears that have failed conservative treatment. A number of studies have suggested the beneficial effect of augmenting the repair with implants constructed from polymers used for sutures. Thus, it was of interest to investigate the affinity of tendon-derived fibroblasts, often thought to be the repairing agents of tor...
