Description: The first description of rupture of the rotator cuff tendon was by Smith in 1834. With history, degenerative changes of the rotator cuff have been better characterized by Duplay, Von Meyer, Codman, and Neer. The exact mechanisms leading to the degeneration of the rotator cuff, however, are still being debated.
