[Applications of biologic augmentations in rotator cuff repair].

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Biologic augmentation could promote rotator cuff tendon healing and improve the mechanical properties as well as reduce postoperative adhesion. Biologic augmentations play a vital role in rotator cuff repair and healing. However, most of the studies were performed on animals and clinical outcomes were short-term follow-up. The therapeutic effects should be assessed in multicenter prospective trials.
