Rotator cuff (RC) injury is a common cause of shoulder pain in people of all age groups. The overall prevalence of RC abnormalities ranges from 9.7% in patients 20 years or younger and increases to 62% in patients aged 80 years and older.1 A tear in the supraspinatus tendon was first described by the Scottish physician A. Monro in 1788 in a book called A Description of All the Bursal Mucosae of the Human Body.2,3 The first description of a series of traumatic RC tears is attributed to J.G. Smith who described the occurrence of tendon rupture following injury in 1834.4.
