Abstract The present study reports an original independent double-row technique for arthroscopic posterosuperior rotator cuff repair. Clinical and ultrasound results were assessed at 6-month follow-up in a single-center series of 78 patients with a mean age of 57years. Constant score improved from 55 to 73 (P<0.05). Seven patients (9%) had re-tear: 6 tendon avulsions from the bone and 1 tear at the myotendinous junction. This repair technique provided a high rate of tendon healing on the bone, with a lower rate of complications than with traditional double-row repair techniques.
