To report our experience of treatment of rotator cuff tear and evaluate the mid-term outcome. Materials and Methods: We have performed 50 cases of mini-open rotator cuff repair from March 1996 to March 1999. Male to female ratio was 34:16, the average age 46.5(23~57) years old, mean follow-up period was 78(62~93) months. All-arthroscopic repair and open repair cases were excluded. Mean symptomatic period was 12.5(6~38) months, operation was indicated in cases of no improvement by 6 months of conservative management. Preoperative simple radiographs and Magnetic resonance arthrography were obtained in all cases. We also observed the inflammation, synovitis, thickness of tear and associated pathology intraoperatively. We evaluated pain, function, and range of motion by UCLA score. Results: Overall UCLA score was mean 29.5 points. Excellent 25, good 18, poor 7 cases. Mean pain score was improved 2.6 to 7.5, 44 cases(88%) were improved and 6 cases(12%) were not improved. Mean functional score was improved 3.4 to 8.5, and activity at follow up, 25 cases(50%) were same, 8 cases(14%) were above, 17 cases(34%) were below compared with preoperative level. Mean active forward flexion was preoperative 112°to postoperative 160°, forward flexion strength was improved 3.8 to 4.7. 43 cases(86%) of patients were satisfied at the result, 7 cases(14%) were not satisfied or aggravated. Results: Mini-open rotator cuff repair was effective method in treating rotator cuff tear.
