1.1 Current evidence on the safety and efficacy of superior capsular augmentation for massive rotator cuff tears is limited in quantity and inadequate in quality. Therefore, this procedure should only be used in the context of research.

1.2 Research should address patient selection, type of graft and technique used, long-term outcomes including shoulder function, and patient-reported outcome measures.
