Abstract

Graft fixation sites on the greater tuberosity and the superior glenoid for superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) are prone to graft failure. The graft fixation procedure on the superior glenoid is challenging due to the limited working space, narrow graft attachment site, and difficulties in suture management. This technical note introduces the surgical technique of SCR using an acellular dermal matrix allograft combined with remnant tendon augmentation to enhance graft healing and the suture management technique to prevent suture tangling for the treatment of irreparable rotator cuff tear.
