An arthroscopic and external view of surgery. A fast, easy and reproducible technique.
Supraspinatus crescent-shaped tear - the most common type of tear. Directly repairable on the bone - easily using one tunnel.
Anatomic supraspinatus repair with three sutures in one tunnel. Perfect footprint coverage - tension-free repair.
Step-by-step - release of retracted cuff, anchor subscapularis repair, margin-convergence sutures and transosseous supra- and infraspinatus repair with six convergent sutures in two tunnels.
Record of PASTA repair. Finishing the tear of the supraspinatus and its anatomic repair into a footprint with three sutures in one tunnel.
Deep interstitial tear of the supraspinatus tendon. Tension-free arthroscopic transosseous rotator cuff repair with the Drillbone Tunneler. Excellent footprint coverage.
A difficult tear with good mobility from posterior to anterior. Two margin-convergence sutures and four convergent sutures in one tunnel, made by the Drillbone Tunneler. Tension-free arthroscopic transosseous rotator cuff repair with 90% footprint coverage and a good prognosis for healing.
