This text takes a comprehensive approach to rotator cuff disorders, including tears and arthroscopic techniques in surgical management. It addresses the latest topics, such as the conversion of mini-open repair to all arthroscopic repair, and answers key questions raised at instructional courses. Experts in the field present not only arthroscopic shoulder anatomy, cuff tear patterns, repair concepts, and other fundamentals, but also provide coverage of state-of-the-art techniques. The step-by-step approach is supplemented by a wealth of anatomical drawings and color photos.If additional lateral excursion of the tendon is required for repair, then a posterior interval slide is performed (completing the double interval slide). This will typically provide 4 to 5cm of additional lateral excursion of the rotator cuff.
