Ricostruzione della capsula superiore (SCR)

Tecnica chirurgica

Irreparable rotator cuff tears have long been a challenge for orthopedic surgeons and historically have had limited surgical techniques with good clinical outcomes. These types of tears can often result in superior humeral head migration along with pain and limited range of motion for the patient. Superior Capsular Reconstruction can be used to address these tears in which there is not sufficient rotator cuff to repair.
This procedure involves use of a graft secured to the glenoid and greater tuberosity to reconstruct the superior capsule, restoring joint function and superior glenohumeral stability. Studies have shown that repairing the superior capsule can significantly improve acromiohumeral distance and ASES scores.1
