Introduction: Various recent clinical literature and industrial commercial interests has shifted the focus from SR rotator cuff repair towards DR repair. The Aim of our study was to evaluate the functional outcomes of patients with rotator cuff tear treated in our institute by Arthroscopic SR Rotator cuff repair.
Materials and Methods: A total of 54 patients with full thickness rotator cuff tear treated with arthroscopic SR rotator cuff repair in our institute for a period from February 1, 2014 to October 31, 2016 were evaluated retrospectively after confirming the rotator cuff tear clinically and by MRI. Clinico-Functional assessment was done using UCLA score.
Results: Mean UCLA Score was 18.69 ± 3.7 preoperatively to 32.07 ± 1.47 postoperatively after more than 2 years of follow up and showed significant improvement in UCLA Scores. Results were Graded as Excellent in 42 (78%), Good in 10(19%) and Poor in 2(3%) patients. On comparison of our results with other published studies, our results was statistically significant (P<0>
Conclusion : Results of Arthroscopic single row rotator Cuff repair in our Institute showed excellent results, is a cost effective technique with the Clinico-Functional results being Good to Excellent in majority of our cases as per UCLA score, comparable to any published series of SR RCR.

Keywords: Shoulder Arthroscopy, RCT (Rotator cuff tear), SR (Single Row repair), DR (Double Row repair), UCLA score.
