Abstract

Excellent clinical results of arthroscopic repair of rotator cuff tears have been reported. However, retears after surgical repair of large and massive rotator cuff tears are one of the most common complications. We present single-row repair with graft augmentation of the fascia lata for large and massive rotator cuff tears to reduce tension at the tendon-bone repair site, and this technique may prevent retears of the repaired rotator cuff. A candidate for this technique is a patient who has a large or massive rotator cuff tear in which the torn edge cannot reach the footprint after mobilization of the torn rotator cuff. This technique could provide an excellent option for irreparable large and massive rotator cuff tears.
