Dear C.S.S. Members and Colleagues:
In case you missed it here is a very elegant presentation by Karl Wieser at the Balgrist Shoulder Course on the natural history of rotator cuff tears based on scientific analysis of a number of factors. Bottom line is that tear progression over 4 years is about 50%.
