Rupture rotator cuff
Rupture rotator cuff

Design of a 3D animation for patient information on the topic of rotator cuff tears. The video is shown to the patient during a consultation to inform him about the upcoming surgery.

During this arthroscopic procedure, the tendon remnants are removed from the bone. Suture anchors are inserted into the humerus. The loose tendon end is pulled into its original position on the bone by using the sutures and fixed to the bone there by using further suture anchors.
