Abstract

We present a case of postsurgical deltoid insufficiency occurring after augmented revision of a failed prior rotator cuff repair. Revision deltoid repair with deltoid imbrication and orthobiological augmentation was dually performed, resulting in successful deltoid and rotator cuff healing and improved clinical outcomes.
