Bridging self-reinforcing double-row rotator cuff repair: we really are doing better.

Author information

  • 1The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group, San Antonio, Texas, USA.


Single-row versus double-row repair of rotator cuff tears is currently a controversial topic. In this Level V article, we articulate why we believe that second-generation double-row repair techniques, which use bridging sutures to link the 2 rows of suture anchors together in a self-reinforcing manner, are producing superior clinical and biomechanical results.
