PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of extensive bursectomy (EB) and limited bursectomy (LB) during arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. METHODS: In the EB group (n = 39), subacromial bursae were thoroughly removed from anterior to posterior and lateral to medial. In the LB group (n = 39), bursectomy was minimized to allow torn cuff visualization and tendon repair. Visual analog scale pain scores, passive forward flexion, external rotation at the side (ER), and internal rotation at the back were measured at 5 weeks and 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery...
