Arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction restores superior glenohumeral stability and function
By Casey Tingle
LYON, France — Superior glenohumeral stability and function of the shoulder joint was restored with arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction, according to a presenter here.
“Arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction restored superior stability and functional outcome of the shoulder joint with few complications,” Teruhisa Mihata, MD, said at the International Society for Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (ISAKOS) Biennial Congress.
Prior to arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery and yearly thereafter, Mihata and colleagues performed physical examination, radiography and MRI on 72 shoulders in 70 consecutive patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears.
