Correlation of Handgrip Strength to Postoperative Outcomes in Rotator Cuff Repair: A Preliminary Report

Background. Recovery of strength, range of motion and function are considered major determinants of success following rotator cuff repair. The strength of the distal limb measured as handgrip strength is a simple predictor of proximal muscle function. Moreover, grip strength is used to prognosticate outcomes in several conditions. This study investigated whether preoperative handgrip strength … Continued
