All-Arthroscopic Suprapectoral Versus Open Subpectoral Tenodesis of the Long Head of the Biceps Brachii Without the Use of Interference Screws

Purpose To compare patient-reported outcomes and healing rates after open subpectoral and all-arthroscopic suprapectoral biceps tenodesis without the use of interference screws in patients with more than 2 years of follow-up. Methods Patients with at [...]

Regarding ‘Meta-Analysis Comparing Single-Row and Double-Row Repair Techniques in the Arthroscopic Treatment of Rotator Cuff Tears

We appreciate the work by Xu to evaluate the collective clinical and advanced-imaging outcomes in their recent article, “Meta-analysis comparing single-row and double-row repair techniques in the arthroscopic treatment of rotator cuff tears.” There are [...]

Arthroscopic Management of Multidirectional Instability: Pancapsular Plication

Patients with multidirectional glenohumeral instability without a Bankart lesion represent a challenging group. Arthroscopic pancapsular plication affords the surgeon flexibility to correct the degree and direction of laxity in the multidirectionally unstable patient. This technique [...]

Results of Arthroscopic Revision Anterior Shoulder Reconstruction

BACKGROUND: Recurrent instability after surgical stabilization of the shoulder is uncommon. Although results of open revision stabilization procedures have been reported, only 3 studies have evaluated the outcome of arthroscopic revision surgery. PURPOSE: To analyze [...]

“Hospital-Corner Repair” for Shoulder Instability

Most shoulder instability repairs are performed with single-loaded suture anchors. Recent reports have shown that there is increased stress on both the glenoid labrum and suture anchor when sutures from single-loaded anchors are passed through [...]

A Proficiency-Based Progression Training Curriculum Coupled With a Model Simulator Results in the Acquisition of a Superior Arthroscopic Bankart Skill Set

PURPOSE: To determine the effectiveness of proficiency-based progression (PBP) training using simulation both compared with the same training without proficiency requirements and compared with a traditional resident course for learning to perform an arthroscopic Bankart [...]
