Why is it important?

These are the longest follow-up results available in the literature on this minimally invasive technique of superior capsular reconstruction using a graft harvested from the patients' thigh


We are very happy with the long term clinical and imaging follow-up of our patients who had this severe and debilitating shoulder lesion but gained quality of life after this complex yet minimally invasive procedure.
