Cover Image

        On the Cover: Viewing through the lateral portal of the right shoulder with a 30-degree arthroscope with the patient placed in a beach chair position, a full-thickness tear of the supraspinatus, retracted to the articular margin (star) is seen (TOP). Next, a completed rotator cuff repair using the SpeedBridge configuration (Arthrex Inc., Naples, FL) can be seen. The medial row knotless sutures can be seen in the background of the image. Each of the anchors have associated repair and looped shuttle suture limbs (stars) that will be used to fix the dermal allograft for augmentation (MIDDLE). The final construct shows the dermal allograft canopy sitting over the supraspinatus tendon repair (BOTTOM). View the accompanying video and see the related article at www.arthroscopytechniques.org.
