PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the initial mechanical strength of 3 rotator cuff repair techniques. METHODS A total of 30 fresh-frozen cadaveric shoulders were prepared, and full-thickness supraspinatus tears were created. Specimens were randomized and placed into 3 groups: (1) transosseous suture technique (group I: TOS, n = 10, 6F/4M),(More)
There is a high rate of recurrent and residual tears after rotator cuff repair surgery. Recent cadaveric studies have provided surgeons with new knowledge about the anatomy of the supraspinatus tendon insertion. Traditional repair techniques fail to reproduce the area of the supraspinatus insertion, or footprint, on the greater tuberosity anatomically.(More)
Integrating security throughout the life cycle can improve overall Web application security. With a detailed review of the steps involved in applying security-specific activities throughout the software development life cycle, the author walks practitioners through effective, efficient application design, development, and testing.

As arthroscopic reconstructive surgery evolves, new techniques that improve operative efficiency while maintaining proven technical principles will enhance a surgeon's skill repertoire. A secure arthroscopic knot requires placing a series of reversed half-hitches on alternating posts and has traditionally involved alternating the knot-passing device between(More)
