Figure 2

Arthroscopic images confirmed the MRI findings. (a) View through the posterior portal: it is able to see the bioabsorbable anchor in the ACJ (white arrow). We used a spinal needle inserted through the skin superiorly through the ACJ joint, to push the anchor down ((b) white arrow) and retrieve it from the lateral working portal. (c) The retear of the rotator cuff was repaired with double row technique (d) using 2 medial and 1 lateral bioabsorbable anchors.
