Information

IC: 204

Title: Controversies in the Use of Grafts and Patches in Rotator Cuff Surgery: Augmentation, Interposition, Reinforcement, Superior Capsular Reconstruction, and Bio-Inductive Scaffolds

Course Description: Following participation in this IC, learners should be able to complete the following: recite the biology and mechanics of rotator cuff grafts and patches; identify the indications for augmentation, interposition, superior capsular reconstructions and bio-inductive in-growth scaffolds; and describe the state-of-the-art surgical techniques for arthroscopic graft implantation.

 

The course will begin with a short overview of graft and patch options available for implantation, followed by a case-based discussion of indications for surgery, state of the art surgical  techniques, avoiding complications and a robust discussion of short as well as long-term outcomes. There will be an emphasis on attendee participation and interaction with the faculty.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and comprehend the role of grafts and patches in rotator cuff surgery,
  • Identify the clinical and radiological criteria for specific graft selection,
  • Have a familiarity with state-of-the-art arthroscopic surgical techniques for graft implantation as well as understanding potential complications and how to avoid them.
