Condition(s) targeted: Rotator Cuff Tear

Intervention: Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with intraoperative periarticular injection (Procedure); Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with non-injection of MMA drugs (Procedure)

Phase: N/A

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Seoul National University Hospital

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Chris H. Jo, M.D., Ph.D, Principal Investigator, Affiliation: Seoul Metropolitan Government Seoul National University Boramae Medical Center; Joint and Spine Center


- The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of periarticular injections

consisting of ropivacaine, morphine, epinephrine, cefotetan, and hyaluronic acid with the efficacy of periarticular injections consisting of the same amount of placebo(isotonic saline) during arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.

- Adding of multimodal analgesia(MMA) to conventional rotator cuff repair, it was

expected that could reduce postoperative pain and narcotic consumption.
