The rotator cuff is a complex musculotendinous unit, which plays a major role in glenohumeral joint stability and mobilization. Tears of the rotator cuff tendon and its subsequent changes of the rotator cuff muscle are common, and the incidence increases with age. Several structures such as the muscle, tendon, and bone may contribute to the development of a tear as well as on the outcome following a rotator cuff repair. Knowledge of these structures may help to improve rotator cuff healing after rotator cuff tear. The goal of this chapter is to discuss the evidence which exists with regard to the pathophysiological changes in the muscle, tendon, and bone that lead to a rotator cuff rupture as well as the changes that occur in these structures after a tear has occurred.
