Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair: Rationale, Technique, and Results of Knotless Self-Reinforcing Double-Row Rotator Cuff Repair

This article: Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair: Rationale, Technique, and Results of Knotless Self-Reinforcing Double-Row Rotator Cuff Repair examines a population of patients with rotator cuff injuries. Rotator cuff repair has shown to improve shoulder function and reduce pain experienced by patients. Successful repairs should have high fixation strength, allow minimal gap formation, maintain stability, and restore normal anatomy and function of the supraspinatus footprint. The purpose of this study is to describe our preferred method for rotator cuff repair using a knotless, self-reinforcing double-row system, and to cite biomechanical data rationalizing its use.  In this study, 22 patients were examined. The overall results indicate that the knotless, self-reinforcing double-row repair system is a viable option for treating rotator cuff tears.
