Hospital da Luz Lisboa Orthopedists Work Distinguished

A paper of which the Hospital da Luz orthopedists, Eduardo Carpinteiro, André Barros, Xavier Zurbano and Luís Pires are coauthors, published in the medical magazine of the Spanish Arthroscopy Association, was distinguished by this publication as best article from 2016, the award being granted last week in Bilbao.

This study, involving 144 patients, had the purpose of comparing arthroscopic repair techniques of rotator cuff tears, by assessing patients in preoperative and postoperative 12-month-periods. The techniques proposed did not show a significant impact on the clinical results attained, although one technique required a longer surgical period and involved higher costs, considering the implants used.
