Abstract: It's unknown which -- if any -- historical factors are most useful, because no studies evaluating their accuracy with rotator cuff tears have been done. As for physical findings, no single physical examination finding is sensitive or specific enough to detect partial-thickness rotator cuff tears (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, systematic review of lower-quality cohort studies).
