The specific aims of this study were to: (1) determine agreement between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and intraoperative soft tissue assessment of the rotator cuff (RC), (2) determine if postoperative range of motion (ROM) and manual muscle test (MMT) gains are different based on severity of RC pathology, and (3) determine if there is a difference in postoperative functional outcomes based on severity of RC pathology.
