Both transtendon, tear completion arthroscopic repair significantly improve function

August 3, 2015

Use of either the transtendon technique or tear completion for the arthroscopic repair of partial-thickness subscapularis tears associated with full-thickness supraspinatus tears resulted in significant functional outcome improvements, according to study results.

Eighty-one patients who underwent arthroscopic rotator cuff repair for a significant partial-thickness subscapularis tear correlated with a full-thickness supraspinatus tear using a transtendon technique (group T) were retrospectively compared with 28 patients who underwent the procedure using the tear completion technique (group C).
