A Technique Using an Easy-to-Fabricate Cannula to Manage Sutures and Aid Graft Passage in Arthroscopic Superior Capsular Reconstruction.


ABSTRACT: Arthroscopic superior capsular reconstruction has become a popular technique used to restore shoulder function in superior cuff deficiency. Passage of the graft via the portal sites is prone to entanglement with sutures and graft twisting. To make shuttling of the graft easier, and reduce the risk of suture entanglement, we developed a technique involving fabricating a suture management cannula from a simple sterile 10-mL syringe. The benefits of this technique are that it allows multiple sutures to be managed easily, avoiding entanglement of the graft during passage and attachment.
