On the topic of rotator cuff repair technique:

There are various suturing patterns that can be used to repair a torn rotator cuff of the shoulder. For example there are simple repairs, double row repairs, repairs using bony tunnels, and suture bridge type of repairs . In this case I used a transosseous equivalent suture bridge technique. The video shows the last part of the rotator cuff tear procedure where I'm tensioning of the final sutures. I am using a Striker REEL X anchor. This laterally placed anchor allows the attached sutures to be tensioned and locked into the anchor. Once the sutures are tensioned they push down on the most lateral edge of the torn rotator cuff up against the roughened greater tuberosity bone. In time the torn tendon will "spot weld" itself onto the bone. Smith and Nephew all suture based Q fix anchors were also placed medially. The uncut sutures from these medially placed anchors are put through the Stryker Reel X anchors and tensioned.
This is the type of repair configuration that I use for most rotator cuff tears.
Please note I'm not a paid consultant for these companies. I just like their implants.

Here is my video showing the final anchor placement and fixation of the rotator cuff.

If you have a friend or family member who is about to undergo rotator cuff repair please consider sharing this video.

Lumbar stenosis is a spinal condition which can cause weakness, fatiguability and dull achy pain of both legs. Treatment is often non surgical.
Here's a nice article about Epidural Steroid Injections for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

ON THE TOPIC OF "ROOT" TEARS OF THE MENISCUS AND MORE: There is an unusual type of meniscus tear pattern which we call "root avulsion" or "root tears". These tears occur in the back of the knee at the point where the meniscus attaches to the bone.

When these tears happen they usually lead to abrupt onset knee pain usually in the back of the knee.

They are difficult to Identifying on an MRI. They are tricky to diagnosis. You really have to look for the tears to find them. It's also not uncommon for the radiologist and the surgeon to miss the tears. When they are identified it's usually best to repair them. The repair is not like other meniscus tear repairs. It is actually a type of repair that requires the torn meniscus stump to be reattached to the bone. It takes extra time and special techniques.
I did a couple of root tear repairs today. I wanted to share a short video clip. The clip shows me preparing the attachment site of the root tear. I'll be putting sutures through the meniscus stump and reattaching it to bone.
The interesting thing about this video is that I was doing the procedure under local anesthesis while the patient was awake.

So there are a few things to point out here.
1- Root tears are difficult to diagnose and often missed by the doctor and the radiologist.
2- The repair is unique and not easy.
3-Arthroscopy of the knee is possible under local anesthesia. However it requires a special technique and a team approach.

Hope you found this post interesting.
