Techniques for Arthroscopic Subscapularis Repair


In this comprehensive series of surgical technique videos, Dr. Burkhart performs arthroscopic repair of three subscapularis tears: a small partial subscapularis tendon tear without subluxation of the biceps, a massive rotator cuff tear including the subscapularis tendon, and a complete retracted subscapularis tendon tear. Arthroscopic portal placement, interference screw placement, and stitch tying are illustrated in detail for each procedure. An arthroscopic video view of a normal subscapularis tendon is also provided for comparison.
