Abstract

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.
