Rotator Cuff Repair with Different Suture Materials Results in Different Protein Expressions with Similar Histological Findings: An Experimental Study in Rabbits

SUMMARY Background. Previous studies have evaluated the biomechanical, histological, and clinical effects of rotator cuff repair with different suture materials. However, a histological and western blot analysis after repair comparing nonabsorbable polyester and polyethylene suture materials in a chronic rotator cuff tear model has not been conducted in any previous studies. The aim of this … Continued
