In a second survey of 259 patients aged 18-75, 60 had full thickness acute rotator cuff
Surgeons should ensure adequate vaginal margins (greater than 1 cm) with full-thickness cuff
closures while avoiding excessive electrocautery.
This may be due to TT cuff
pressures exceeding tracheal mucosal perfusion pressure or due to abrasion of the tracheal wall from movement of the tip of the TT during ventilatory movements, tracheal suctioning and excessive neck movements.
The muscles and tendons of the rotator cuff
stabilize the shoulder and control rotation and movement of the joint.
This prospective randomized comparative clinical trial was to determinate the minimum effective cuff
inflating volume for classic LMA Well Lead [sup]™ (Well Lead Medical Co.
During running cuff
closure--particularly if it is being completed vaginally--we find it helpful to elevate the corners with long Allis clamps or stay sutures.
The French study included 90 patients who underwent rotator cuff
Stitch a line of ease stitching at a 1/2" seam allowance along one sleeve cap between the notches and along each cuff
The rotator cuff
is a group of four muscles that form a cuff
of tendon on the upper end of the arm.
With the high rate of structural failures after rotator cuff
repair and the prevalence of patients at increased risk of failure, a significant amount of time and resources have been dedicated to find ways to improve outcomes with augmentation.
Previous studies have shown unacceptably high cuff
pressures in the prehospital setting and in emergency departments.
To prevent significant pain and leave a much smaller incision, orthopaedic surgeons have begun performing arthroscopic rotator cuff
repair, which leaves a much smaller incision through the use of small instruments to perform the procedure.
