Single-Row Repair

Stephen C. Weber

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Decreasing the re-tear rate associated with rotator cuff repair has been a major focus of the orthopedic literature for the last two decades. While some of the literature has focused on improving the biologic milieu, much of the literature has been on improving the mechanics of the construct attaching the tendon to the bone. Much of this literature has focused on the time-zero strength of the attached tendon. More recently, the biologic response to these constructs, clinical outcomes, and re-tear rates for rotator cuff repair using these differing techniques has become available. This chapter highlights the results of this voluminous literature.
