Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this systematic review was to investigate whether surgical repair with rehabilitation results in less atrophy of the supraspinatus muscle post-op compared to pre-op as evaluated by occupation ratio. Methods:Electronic databases including Ovid Medline, Cinahl, and Web of Science were searched through January of 2020. A blinded abstract review was completed following the inclusion/exclusion criteria by two researchers, with a third researcher acting as a tie break. The same process for full text inclusion was performed with a different team of 3 researchers. Further articles were identified via hand searching reference lists and searching Web of Science. Results: A total 128 abstracts were identified, with 13 articles eligible for full- text review. Following full-text review, a total of 6 articles met all inclusion and exclusion criteria and overall were given a C for the grade of recommendation. A total of 393 patients were included with a follow-up range of 12-133 months. All six studies found a significant increase in occupation ratio from baseline to long-term follow up. In our review, we found that muscle atrophy of the supraspinatus muscle is attenuated following surgery and rehabilitation.
