Louis U. Bigliani, MD
The patient in this most informative video supplement is a 50-year-old laborer who had a traumatic rotator cuff tear. Prior to presenting to Dr. Bigliani, he underwent three separate procedures. The procedures included a repair of the rotator cuff with distal clavicle resection, an anterior Bankart repair, and a revision rotator cuff repair with a distal clavicle resection. Information dealing with revision after failed attempts at rotator cuff repair is sparse. Viewers will have the rare opportunity to observe the technique of a world renown expert in shoulder and implant surgery in this surgically challenging case.
