This study details procedures for establishing a chronic-like rabbit rotator cuff (RC) injury. Specifically, the injury is created in the subscapularis (SSC) muscle-tendon/myotendinous unit to mimic human RC anatomy and pathophysiology, including severe muscle fatty degeneration (FD). This protocol can be applied to study RC injuries and assess regenerative therapies.
