Orthobiological augmentation of consecutive rotator cuff repair failure and deltoid dehiscence

Mil Med. 2015 Jan;180(1):e142-4. doi: 10.7205/MILMED-D-14-00251.


We present a case of postsurgical deltoid insufficiency occurring after augmented revision of a failed prior rotator cuff repair. Revision deltoid repair with deltoid imbrication and orthobiological augmentation was dually performed, resulting in successful deltoid and rotator cuff healing and improved clinical outcomes.
