Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair using a single-row of triple-loaded suture anchors with a modified suture configuration.

Summary of "Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair using a single-row of triple-loaded suture anchors with a modified suture configuration."

Achieving an adequate restoration of the muscle-tendon-bone unit and the anatomical footprint is essential for a successful outcome in open and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. The described suture grasping technique using triple-loaded suture anchors might combine high initial fixation strength with good footprint coverage. It describes two mattress' stitches medial at the articular margin of the tendon. Additionally, a third mattress stitch is performed laterally to increase footprint contact and avoid dog-ear deformity. The triple-mattress repair is easy to perform and might be a good alternative in either arthroscopic or open rotator cuff repair.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.

Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.

The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.

A MutL protein and component of the DNA MISMATCH REPAIR system. Its ENDONUCLEASE activity introduces SINGLE-STRAND DNA BREAKS which create entry points for EXO1 exonuclease to remove the strand containing the mismatch. It may also function in DNA DAMAGE signaling.
