Evolution of Arthroscopic Repair

Repairing rotator cuff tears utilizes a type of suture made of threaded materials as well as anchors. Advances have led to the development of a suture material made of multi-stranded, long chain ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene core with a braided jacket of polyester. The quantity and pattern in which these sutures are used vary depending on surgeon preference and the characteristic/size of the tear. Once these sutures are passed through the tendon, the tendon must then be re-attached to its original location on the bone. This is done with suture anchors and can be made of metal or a biodegradable material.
