Does Adding Muscle Transfers to Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty Improve Functional Outcomes of the Shoulder? A Multicenter Study
1.1. Background: One of the authors has added rotator cuff econstruction with tendon transfers to RSA, expecting that it will not only obtain better function, but also reduce complications. The aim was to compare the clinical outcomes with and without tendon transfers in RSA in a multicenter study.
1.2. Methods: 67 shoulders were treated with RSA with or without tendon transfers. The average age was 76.4 years, and the average follow-up period was 22.8 months.
