(OBQ10.152) During shoulder arthroscopy of a 58-year-old female recreational golfer, the rotator cuff is examined and is seen to be intact on the articular side. After a bursectomy is performed in the subacromial space, a bursal sided tear is found measuring 1.5 cm from anterior to posterior and 4 mm in depth from the surface of the tendon with surrounding cuff softening. What is the appropriate management? Topic Review Topic

1. Debride the tear and perform an acromioplasty
2. Abort surgery and start a physical therapy program
3. Convert it to a full-thickness tear and repair it with suture anchors
4. Consider it incidental, as this is a common finding in this age group
5. Perform acromioplasty only
