- A Biodegrable Button to Augment Suture Attachment in Rotator Cuff Repair. Bravman, Jonathan T.; Guttman, Dan; Rokito, Andrew S.; Kummer, Frederick J.; Jazrawi, Laith M. // Bulletin of the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases;2006, Vol. 63 Issue 3/4, p126
Recent experimental studies suggest that the use of suture anchors for rotator cuff tear (RCT) repair transfers the "weak link" to the suture-tendon interface where failure occurs as the sutures cut through the tendon. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of using a suture...
- Soft tissue tenodesis of the long head of the biceps tendon associated to the Roman Bridge repair. Franceschi, Francesco; Longo, Umile Giuseppe; Ruzzini, Laura; Rizzello, Giacomo; Maffulli, Nicola; Denaro, Vincenzo // BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders;2008, Vol. 9, Special section p1
Background: Rotator cuff tears are frequently associated with pathologies of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT). Tenotomy and tenodesis of the LHBT are commonly used to manage disorders of the LHBT. Methods: We present an arthroscopic soft tissue LHBT tenodesis associated with a Roman...
