Hi. 'Full thickness' doesn't mean a complete detachment, but rather, a tear in some of the fibers all the way through. Here is a little better image of a full-thickness (top) tear: http://www.howardluksmd.com/shoulder-faq/how-do-i-know-if-i-have-a-full-thickness-rotator-cuff-tear/ Some of the fibers can still hold on with a complete detatchment of others.
