Although initial studies have demonstrated
that concentrated bone marrow aspirate (cBMA) injections promote
rotator cuff repair (RCR) healing, there are no randomized
prospective studies investigating clinical efficacy.
In conclusion, cBMA-augmented aRCR of
isolated supraspinatus tendon tears may result in a structurally
superior repair but largely fails to significantly improve
treatment failure rates and patient-reported clinical outcomes when
compared with aRCR alone. Additional study is warranted to
investigate the long-term benefits of improved repair quality on
clinical outcomes and repair failure rates.
