Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Both the quality and quantity of reporting in the SLAP repair literature, especially the surgical indications and technical intraoperative characteristics, leaves significant room for improvement. In their systematic review, Kibler and Sciascia identify this considerable underlying imprecision. Based on the current literature, no consensus exists for establishing any criteria for a successful SLAP repairdsurgical indications, characteristics (type, location, number of anchors), completeness of repair, or rehabilitation.
