About this book

Presenting a logical, comprehensive approach to the patient with a massive rotator cuff tear, this book begins with the pathoanatomy and diagnostic work-up for this common injury, including imaging. Both non-operative and operative treatment options for massive tears follow, including arthroscopy, the use of biologics and patches, tendon transfers, and hemiarthroplasty and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. A practical treatment algorithm for clinicians treating patients with massive rotator cuff tears is also included. Each chapter opens with pearls and pitfalls covering the main key points for quick reference. The overarching theme of this book is that patients with similar imaging findings may demonstrate very different clinical presentations, and the final treatment recommendation should be made based on their complaints and expectations. As such, it will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine and shoulder physicians, physiatrists, physical medicine and rehab specialists, and occupational therapists.

Reviews

“This is an excellent atlas and textbook on the subject of rotator cuff shoulder pathologies ranging from the mild to most severe cases. … I highly recommend this book to all surgical trainees and practitioners of orthopedics. All doctors with an interest in shoulder surgery will find this book very helpful in there practices.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, May, 2015)

“The goal is to provide a comprehensive guide to the treatment of patients with massive rotator cuff tears and how to address pitfalls during attempted repair. … The book targets orthopedic surgeons who perform complex shoulder surgeries, but it will certainly benefit residents, fellows in training, and any surgeons who perform shoulder surgery. … It will be a well-received addition to the orthopedic library and is a must-read for all fellows in shoulder surgery.” (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2014)
