Extract

Although infection after rotator cuff repair occurs infrequently, it can be a catastrophic complication. To the best of my knowledge, there are only a small number of reports in the literature regarding management of these infections, and none of these report the outcome of a staged arthroscopic approach1-6. Once the infection has resolved, reconstruction of the residual rotator cuff defect can present a substantial challenge for the treating orthopaedic surgeon.
