Do You Arthroscopic Repair for Subscapularis Tendon Tear, Which Accounts for More Than Half of the 1st Facet? Or do You Perform Debridement?

2017-06-14 00:57:14 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study was to randomly classify the upper third of the subscapularis in 1/2 of the rupture patients as preoperative group (arthroscopic and arthroscopic debridement group) and the difference between clinical and clinical scores.


The degree of rupture that is an adaptation of arthroscopic surgery is now known to be about one-third to one-half of a rupture. However, the most controversial case is the one-third to one-half of the upper tear attached to the tendinous portion of the subscapularis. Currently, debridement or repair is under way. But evidence-based studies are lacking and no clear treatment guidelines are available.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.

The tear-forming and tear-conducting system which includes the lacrimal glands, eyelid margins, conjunctival sac, and the tear drainage system.

Inflammation of the synovial lining of a tendon sheath. Causes include trauma, tendon stress, bacterial disease (gonorrhea, tuberculosis), rheumatic disease, and gout. Common sites are the hand, wrist, shoulder capsule, hip capsule, hamstring muscles, and Achilles tendon. The tendon sheaths become inflamed and painful, and accumulate fluid. Joint mobility is usually reduced.

Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.

A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
