Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study effect of shoulder joint function after rotator cuff repair of polylactic acid absorbable membrane.

METHODS:

From September 2015 to December 2016, 50 patients diagnosed with rotator cuff tear were selected and divided into treatment group and control group. There were 25 patients in control group, including 12 males and 13 females, with an average age of (48.7±3.5) years old, who received simple arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. There were 25 patients in treatment group, including 11 males and 14 females, with an average age of(49.2±4.1) years old, who performed arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with implanting polylactic acid absorbable membraneon shoulder of rotator cuff. Preoperative and postoperative VAS score, ASES score and UCLA score were recorded and compared between two groups.

RESULTS:

At 6 months after operation, preoperative VAS score in control group was 5.48±1.12, and decreased as 1.28±0.84 after operation; ASES score before operation was 52.24±4.64, and improved to 86.92±3.20 after operation;preoperative UCLA score improved from 14.36±1.89 before operation to 30.72±1.28 after operation. In treatment group, VAS score decreased from 5.36±1.32 before operation to 1.40±0.71 after operation;preoperative ASES score was 51.04±4.09, and improved to 88.96±2.79 after operation; UCLA score improved from 15.12±1.81 before operation to 32.12±1.33 after operation. There was no significant difference in VAS score between two groups, and ASES score, UCLA score in treatment group was obviously better than control group.

CONCLUSIONS:

Application of polylactic acid absorbable medical membrane could obviously improve shoulder function, and effectively prevent acromion adhesion after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.
