Mr Ali Narvani publishes article on rotator cuff repair technique

Consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr Ali Narvani and fellow researchers recently published an article in Arthroscopy Techniques, the companion to Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery, on a rotator cuff repair technique that aims to reduce the significantly high failure rates associated with repair of very large rotator cuff tears.

Entitled ‘“Owl” Technique for All-Arthroscopic Augmentation of a Massive or Large Rotator Cuff Tear With Extracellular Matrix Graft’, the article explained that although the techniques and technology utilised in rotator cuff surgery have greatly improved over the years, there is still a high failure rate in repairing massive tears.

Patch augmentation is reducing these failure rates, but arthroscopic patch augmentation is highly challenging for the surgeon, so the article detailed a ‘simple and reproducible technique for all-arthroscopic extracellular matrix graft augmentation’.
