Abstract

Rotator cuff repair is an increasingly common orthopedic procedure. As with any surgical procedure, the complications can be potentially devastating when they do happen to occur. This review attempts to summarize the most frequently encountered complications, including retear, failure to heal, stiffness, missed concomitant pathology, and infection. Also included are several cases that outline the diagnosis and management of these complications.
