A tough attachment between rotator cuff, bone achieved through unique fibrous architecture

A tough attachment between rotator cuff, bone achieved through unique fibrous architecture

A discovery by a multi-institutional team of researchers and engineers about how tendon and bone attach in the shoulder joint has uncovered previously unsuspected engineering strategies for attaching dissimilar materials. The discovery also sheds new light on how the rotator cuff functions and on why rotator cuff repairs fail so frequently.
