Failures following arthroscopic rotator cuff repairRecurrent tears, incomplete healing or central cuff failure

Buess E – The failure mode associated with double–row methods has been recognized and termed central cuff failure. It can be minimized by avoiding overstraining the medial row and has been rarely observed in this series.
