Some studies suggest a common degenerative path might contribute to a range of shoulder diseases involving subacromial pain syndrome and full-thickness rotator cuff tears. One could therefore theorize arthroscopic subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair as interventions at different stages of a degenerative shoulder disease. Few studies have compared long-term outcomes after these two procedures.
