Purpose: This video demonstrates surgical repair of a recurrent, large rotator cuff tear via an arthroscopic transosseous tunnel technique. Methods: An active middle-aged patient with a right, recurrent rotator cuff tear is shown in the beach-chair position with standard arthroscopic landmarks and portals marked. The rotator cuff defect is assessed, failed sutures are removed, and the footprint is prepared. Arthroscopic transosseous tunnels are created, sutures are passed through the tunnels and then the rotator cuff, and satisfactory reduction and repair are achieved. Outcomes of comparable patients from an ongoing research study comparing tunneled rotator cuff repair and double-row anchor rotator cuff repair are presented at the end of the video. Conclusions: This video demonstrates arthroscopic revision rotator cuff repair via transosseous tunnels.
