When tendon degeneration did occur, secondary vascular changes could be seen. In 1990, a study by Lohr and Ulthoff showed that the bursal side of the cuff was well vascularized whereas the articular side had a sparse vascular supply. They concluded that this may predispose the articular side of the rotator cuff to failure. Intraoperative laser Doppler flowmetry has also been used to assess cuff vascularity. The aim of the study by Swiontowski and coworkers (1990) was to clarify the discrepancy between the prior cadaveric studies that showed hypovascular zones within the supraspinatus tendon and surgical findings of increased vascularity in patients with impingement syndrome.

They further suggested that this was consistent with the increased prevalence of rotator cuff pathology in older age groups because the decreased blood supply may predispose a patient to tendinopathy and possible attrition or failure. By contrast, other studies have failed to show decreases in the vascular supply to critical portions of the rotator cuff (anterosuperior corner of supraspinatus). Moseley and Goldie (1963) performed microinjection studies on cadaveric shoulders and found a watershed area that corresponded to the critical zone of the tendon (that was most susceptible to tears), but that this area was not necessarily less vascularized than other portions of the cuff.
