Rotator cuff tears are the most common shoulder problem in orthopedics and traumatology practice. Successful results are obtained with surgical treatment in acute traumatic tears and degenerative tears that do not respond to conservative treatment. For the last 20 years, arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs have become the gold standard method for the surgical treatment of rotator cuff tears. With advances in implant and arthroscopic imaging technology, many different arthroscopic techniques have been described for full-thickness rotator cuff repairs. The most ideal repair method is still a controversial issue, and research continues on the advantages and disadvantages of the methods compared to each other. In this article, we aimed to present an up-to-date review of the literature on this subject by dealing with full-thickness rotator cuff tears in all its lines.
