6.1 The committee noted that current evidence is from small numbers of patients and is restricted to patients with massive, full thickness rotator cuff tears.

6.2 The committee noted from the published literature and the comments received from patients who had had biodegradable subacromial spacer insertion for rotator cuff tears that it appears to cause pain lasting a few weeks after the procedure.
