BACKGROUND Hallmarks of the pathogenesis of rotator cuff disease (RCD) include an abnormal immune response, angiogenesis, and altered variables of vascularity. Degenerative changes enhance production of pro-inflammatory, anti-inflammatory, and vascular angiogenesis-related cytokines (ARC) that play a pivotal role in the immune response to arthroscopic(More)
We present a simplified technique for the side-to-side arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. The instruments required for this technique are a 45 degrees Suture Lasso (SL; Arthrex, Naples, FL) and a 17F spinal needle (SN). With the arthroscope in the lateral portal, the SL is inserted through the posterior cannulas to grab healthy tissue at the posterior margin(More)
