Tissue Anchor Use in Arthroscopic Glenohumeral Surgery
Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 07/11/2012
Diduch DR et al. – Arthroscopic surgery has become the mainstay of treatment of several common glenohumeral pathologies such as tears of the rotator cuff and labrum. Arthroscopic rotator cuff and labral repair provide outcomes comparable to those achieved with traditional open techniques, with the benefits of smaller incisions and less soft–tissue disruption. Development and improvement of tissue anchors and arthroscopic instrumentation has been integral to the increased popularity of arthroscopic glenohumeral repairs.
