Introduction: With the progress in arthroscopic surgery, latissimus dorsi transfer (LDT) for irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears (RCTs) has become a reliable all-arthroscopic or arthroscopically-assisted procedure. Mid-term results of the arthroscopically-assisted LDT (aLDT) are scarce in literature. The purpose of this study was to report our clinical and radiographic mid-term results of aLDT for irreparable posterosuperior RCTs. Read More
