Experience in Transosseous Arthroscopic Restoration of Shoulder Rotator Cuff

Cite item

Full Text


Results of arthroscopic treatment for 10 patients (10 shoulder joints) with rotator cuff rupture using transosseous suture are presented. Mean age of patients made up 49 (38-63) years. In 2 cases the size of defect was under 1 cm, in 6 cases - 1-3 cm, in 2 cases - 3-5 cm. Mean score by UCLA scale was 13 (8-14) preoperatively and 26 (24-28) in 3 months after intervention. Advantages of the described technique include rapidity of performance, low price and provision of anatomic restoration of injured structures.
