Partial-thickness rotator cuff tears are a challenge for shoulder surgeons. There is still no standard treatment protocol. The recent introduction of new arthroscopic techniques and a better grasp of pathogenic mechanisms along with a greater functional demand from patients, have led to the need for a thorough analysis of the problem. This paper analyses the literature in order to simplify the approach to treating partial-thickness rotator cuff tears.
