    Massive Rotator Cuff Tears And Superior Capsular Reconstruction

    What is rotator cuff?

    A group of tendons around the shoulder joint which are responsible for stabilising the shoulder and movement of the shoulder . There are four tendons in the rotator cuff:

    • Supraspinatus
    • Infraspinatus
    • Subscapularis
    • Teres Minor

    How do Rotator cuff tendons tear?

    • Degenerative , due to poor tendon quality
    • Attritional , due to Impingement
    • Traumatic

    What are the symptoms of rotator cuff tear?

    • Difficulty in shoulder movement
    • Pain
    • Night pain
    • Difficulty in overhead/behind the back activities

    What is a massive irreparable rotator cuff tear?

    Generally Surgeons are able to arthroscopically repair majority of the rotator cuff tears , however if there are

    • Multiple tendon tears
    • Retraction of tendon
    • Significant fatty infiltration

    Then it may not be possible to repair the rotator cuff.

    In such scenarios in younger individuals (40-60 yrs) a treatment alternative is superior capsular reconstruction where using the individuals own thigh tissue the rotator cuff can be reconstructed.
