What is a rotator cuff repair?

Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a procedure to repair a torn rotator cuff by shaving bone spurs or repairing torn tendons and muscles in the shoulder. If the patient’s injury extends beyond the rotator cuff, the surgeon may perform modified rotator cuff surgery with biceps repair to correct the injury.

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint. It is responsible for supporting the shoulder joint and keeping the head of the arm in the socket. Rotator cuff surgery is performed for rotator cuff injuries. Rotator cuff injuries are very common in people whose jobs require repetitive overhead movements or in athletes due to sudden, jerky movements. Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair in Hyderabad

X-ray: A rotator cuff tear does not show up on an X-ray, but the bone spurs and accompanying arthritic changes can be easily identified on an X-ray.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound is used to visualize soft tissues such as muscles and tendons. It also allows to assess the rotator cuff in motion. It also helps to compare healthy and diseased shoulder joints.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRIs help in detailed visualization and diagnosis of soft tissue damage.

Rotator cuff repair surgery

Medical treatment with rest, ice, and physical therapy is possible for minor injuries, but to repair a rotator cuff tear, the only appropriate treatment is arthroscopic tendon repair. During surgery, the surgeon inserts an arthroscope and surgical tools to reattach the tears through small incisions. Patients need some physical therapy for the torn rotator cuff after surgery.

What is a drop arm test?
This test is done to find out the weakness of the supraspinatus muscle. The supraspinatus muscle is the most commonly injured rotator cuff muscle. This test requires you to stretch your arm outward/to the side while sitting/standing. First, raise your arm 90 degrees, with or without assistance, then try lowering your arm in a very controlled way. If you have an injured rotator cuff, lowering the TMJ in a controlled manner will be very painful and difficult. Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair in Hyderabad

What is a lateral Jobe test?
It is the most reliable test for diagnosing a rotator cuff injury. The test is performed with the help of an assistant to look for weaknesses in the supraspinatus muscle. Raise your arm parallel to the floor at a 90 degree angle. Next, rotate your arm, palm back and thumb down. Then have a rescuer apply force to the arm and push the rescuer away. If you feel pain and find it hard to resist, that’s a sure sign of a rotator cuff injury.
