Patients may safely return to driving as early as 2 weeks after rotator cuff repair

For patients undergoing rotator cuff repair, a safe return to driving can be made as early as 2 weeks after surgery with no clinically important negative impact on driving fitness, according to published results.
Using an instrumented vehicle equipped with cameras and an onboard safety monitor, Ariel E. Badger, MS, and colleagues analyzed preoperative vs. postoperative driving fitness in 27 patients (mean age of 58.6 years) who underwent primary rotator cuff repair (RCR).
Badger and colleagues evaluated several kinematic driving measures and behavioral data, such as parking, left turns, right
