Full Thickness Rotator Cuff Tear with Surgical Repairs

This exhibit begins with an anterior view of the right shoulder. The skin is transparent revealing the underlying skeletal and muscular anatomy which shows a large retracted tear of the rotator cuff. Next, the following steps of the open rotator cuff repair procedure is included: a strap type incision is made into the right shoulder, an acromioplasty is performed using an osteotome and smoothing the undersurface of the acromion with a rongeur, the upper edge of the greater tuberosity is smoothed and a shallow trough for the rotator cuff repair is created and finally, three suture anchors are then placed in the humeral head within the trough completing the repair.
