The pec major muscle is not essential for normal daily shoulder function, but is important for strenuous activities. Patients who wish to return to active athletic and manual activities are likely to benefit from surgical repair. However, it is important to bear in mind that this is an uncommon injury and the  literature is  based largely  on  case  reports,  small  series,  and  systematic  reviews of  these  small  series.  There  is  a  lack  of  high-quality good evidence for surgical versus non-surgical management and early versus delayed repairs. Outcomes  in  the  literature  are  also presented  heterogeneously, so it is difficult to compare them.
