Özet

Superior labrum anterior posterior (SLAP) lesions are a well-defined cause of shoulder pain and disability and may occur in conjunction with rotator cuff tears. This study was designed to prospectively evaluate the minimum 2 year results of arthroscopic repair of type II SLAP lesions in patients over the age of 45 years with and without rotator cuff tears.
