This should be an interesting study. I was trying to find some research done with the use of AAS's and injury repair/healing and came upon this. They are just in the "recruiting" stages. The basic outline of this is pretty simple

I'm new to this site, so I can't add the link. But if you Google this it will pop-up:

Oxandrolone Rotator Cuff Trial (ORCT)​

Brief Summary:
This study is about healing after a rotator cuff tear repair procedure. We hope to learn if a biologic medication: Oxandrolone, a synthetic derivative of the human hormone Testosterone (the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid), given for 12 weeks following rotator cuff repair, is effective in aiding in the healing process and restoring muscle mass.

Men and women aged 40 - 75 scheduled for rotator cuff repair, who have failed nonoperative management of chronic, full thickness rotator cuff tears confirmed by MRI, will be randomized into one of two groups, a control group (receiving placebo medication) and an experimental group receiving oral Oxandrolone for 12 weeks postoperative.
