ARTHROSCOPIC LATARJET PROCEDURE

OVERVIEW

  • The main lifter of the shoulder joint is called the rotator cuff which is a group of 4 muscles arranged from front to back of the shoulder. The rotator cuff can tear due to degeneration- wear and tear/trauma- fall.
  • Usually, its repaired by a procedure called arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, but in neglected cases, the cuff muscles will be deficient and it is impossible to repair the tissue.
  • The options after this are limited, and usually, answer to this is irreparable tear is to do a reverse shoulder arthroplasty(shoulder replacement).
  • Dr. Nair has trained with Dr.Mihata the architect of SCR and regularly does superior capsular reconstruction, where a muscle graft from the thigh is used to augment the defective tear giving excellent results in 3 months.
