Abstract

A musculotendinous junction tear is a rare type of rotator cuff tear. There is very little literature available on musculotendinous junction tears. We propose a technique for repair of this type of tear using lateral-row anchors. In this technique, the torn tendon is freshened and sutures are passed through the medial part of the torn tendon. When it is fixed with lateral-row anchors, the tear is reduced and tendon-to-tendon healing is seen. The enthesis and the tendon length are preserved.
