Suture Anchor Technique

Tenodesis with suture anchors was first described by Gartsman and Hammerman  and subsequently by Nord et al. Each used suture anchors inserted in different locations to obtain fixation to the proximal humerus or the greater tuberosity. Two suture anchors are inserted through the subclavian portal (Nord) or from the anterior portal (Gartsman). The method described by Gartsman requires debridement of the CHL and requires more extensive anterior debridement to allow insertion of the anchors into the intertubercular groove.
