ICJR Interviews: Cost-Effective Technique for Repairing Rotator Cuff Tears

    A study from The Rothman Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has shown that arthroscopic anchorless (transosseous) is a more cost-effective option than the traditional anchor-based (transosseous-equivalent) technique for repairing rotator cuff tears, with similar outcomes at 1 year after surgery.
