Abstract

Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair can be challenged by poor soft-tissue or bone quality. Both biologic and biomechanical factors have been widely implicated in rotator cuff retearing after arthroscopic repair. In this Level V article, we describe several techniques for arthroscopically overcoming these challenges.
