Abstract

Background

Rotator cuff disease is a common condition that causes shoulder pain and functional disability. Recent studies suggested that hyperlipidemia might be associated with the development of rotator cuff disease. The objective of this study was to explore the relationship of hyperlipidemia and rotator cuff diseases.

Methods

A computerized search using relevant search terms was performed in the PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases, as well as a manual search of reference and citation lists of the included studies. Searches were limited to studies that explored the association of hyperlipidemia and rotator cuff diseases.

Results

Sixteen studies were included in this systematic review. Ten of sixteen included studies suggested an association between dyslipidemia and rotator cuff diseases, while the other six studies did not find an association. Two studies demonstrated there were an association between statins and reduced risk of developing rotator cuff diseases or decreased incidence of revision after rotator cuff repair.

Conclusion

The current study suggested that there was an association between hyperlipidemia and rotator cuff diseases. Furthermore, current evidence suggested that use of statins could decrease the risk of developing rotator cuff diseases and the incidence of revision after rotator cuff repair. Future high-quality studies are highly needed to confirm these findings.
