Editorial Commentary: On Kibler & Sciascia: What Did the Five Fingers Say to the Face? SLAP. A Systematic Review Wake-Up Call to Improve SLAP Repair Guidelines.

Abstract

Both the quality and quantity of reporting in the SLAP repair literature, especially the surgical indications and technical intraoperative characteristics, leaves significant room for improvement. In their systematic review, Kibler and Sciascia identify this considerable underlying imprecision. Based on the current literature, no consensus exists for establishing any criteria for a successful SLAP repair--surgical indications, characteristics (type, location, number of anchors), completeness of repair, or rehabilitation.
