Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair Utilizing Versalok System
This exhibit features six illustrated arthroscopic steps to repair a series of left shoulder injuries. The initial exam revealed a full thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon, and grade two glenoid surface chondromalacia. The glenoid surface was contoured back to healthy tissue with a shaver, and the bursal tissue was excised. Holes were then drilled for suture anchor placement. After the anchors were secured in the humerus, the sutures were then passed through the supraspinatus tendon. A secondary anchor utilizes the same sutures to return the supraspinatus to it’s original anatomic position.
