The purpose of this study was to compare clinical outcomes between the new V-shaped repair method and conventional methods for the arthroscopic repair of Type II SLAP lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study population consisted of 23 people treated with the new V-shaped repair method or conventional methods in the arthroscopic repair of Type II SLAP lesions at our institution between May 2006 and October 2008. Eleven shoulders were treated using the new V-shaped repair method. Twelve shoulders were treated using conventional methods. The average follow up period was 15 months. For evaluation of clinical results, we used UCLA and VAS pain scores.
Comparing change scores (preoperative vs. postoperative states) there were no significant differences in UCLA score or VAS score between the two groups.
The new V-shaped repair technique elicits similar clinical results with conventional arthroscopic repair techniques and thus can be considered a useful alternative when using an absorbable suture that is anchor linked with only one suture.
Key Words: SLAP lesion; V-shaped repair
