The purpose of this study was to determine clinical and structural outcomes of arthroscopic repair of massive, contracted, immobile rotator cuff tears using interval slides. Eleven patients who had rotator cuff tears that were irreparable using standard mobilization techniques, but were repaired using interval slides were reviewed. Patients were evaluated(More)
BACKGROUND Arthroscopic repair of type II superior labrum from anterior to posterior (SLAP) lesions is a common surgical procedure. However, anatomic healing following repair has rarely been investigated. The intraobserver and interobserver reliability of magnetic resonance imaging arthrography (MRA) following type II SLAP repair has not previously been(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical and anatomic outcomes of patients following transtendon rotator-cuff repair of partial articular supraspinatus tendon avulsion (PASTA) lesions. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients in the senior author's practice who had isolated PASTA lesions treated by transtendon rotator-cuff repair were included(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic rotator cuff tears are prevalent and can be disabling. The existing literature is unclear regarding the effectiveness of nonoperative treatment. The purposes of this study were to determine whether the outcome of nonoperative treatment can be predicted on the basis of the presenting clinical characteristics and whether the outcome(More)
Purpose. The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy of the conventional method for determining the percentage of partial thickness rotator cuff tears to a method using an intra-articular depth guide. The clinical utility of the intra-articular depth guide was also examined. Methods. Partial rotator cuff tears were created in cadaveric shoulders.(More)
AIMS The aim was to evaluate the clinical and anatomic outcome of arthroscopic repair of type II SLAP lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The senior author performed isolated repairs of 25 type II SLAP lesions in 25 patients with a mean age of 40.0 ± 12 years. All tears were repaired using standard arthroscopic suture anchor repair to bone. All patients were(More)
