US Market Report for Rotator Cuff Repair 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "US Market Report for Rotator Cuff Repair 2017 - MedCore" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

During an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair procedure, the tear is generally repaired using a combination of stitches and anchors, which are made of various resorbable and non-resorbable materials.

The procedure has traditionally been done as a single row repair using one to two anchors; however, in the last few years there has been an increasing number of double row repair surgeries. Double row fixation uses a minimum of four anchors, is said to improve the anatomical footprint of the rotator cuff repair site and allows for improved healing.

By using twice as many suture anchors, the area of the repair footprint is larger. This increases the number of fixation points within the tendon itself, which is the weakest point of the repair site and improves stability of the overall repair. However, the definition of what constitutes a double row repair has expanded since the technique's introduction.

Originally, it described two rows of fixation: one medial and one lateral. It has since evolved to include what could be described as double-row technique, which could involve a number of possible suture configurations. A disadvantage of double row repair is that the additional number of suture anchors can be problematic should revision surgery be required.

This can be especially problematic with standard polylactic acid (PLA) polymer anchors that can be quickly absorbed by the body, leaving behind a bone void in the greater tuberosity of the humerus.
