FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TENSOR SURGICAL DEBUTS TENSOR SHOULDER REPAIR SYSTEM AT MILAN THIRD INTERNATIONAL TRANSOSSEOUS SUMMIT
Growing International Collegiality Bears Fruit
Chattanooga, Tenn. – June 1, 2019 –
Tensor Surgical, Inc., maker of the Tensor Shoulder Repair System, a reusable arthroscopic transosseous rotator cuff repair system, announced that Tensor Surgical and Dr. Brett Sanders had the privilege of joining an international group of leading arthroscopic surgeons at the Milan Third International Transosseous Summit in June 2019.
The Transosseous Academy is run by internationally renowned Dr. Allesandro Castagna. The event highlighted new developments regarding the basic science of transosseous techniques, clinical results and applications.
Dr. Marcello Osimani from Sapienza University, Rome, Italy, presented documentation of the healing process in on transosseous repair. Using imaging of the interface between the tendon and bone he positively compared transosseous repairs with previously published anchor repairs. MRI evidence demonstrated healing characteristics of transosseous repairs have less partial failures and signal abnormalities than anchor-based repairs.
Discussion focused on the merits of contrasting transosseous techniques, as well as their relative strengths and weaknesses.
Dr. Brett Sanders of Tensor Surgical and Dr. Matteo Mantovani of NCS Lab discussed using real time kinematic data to support clinical decisions and evaluate outcomes. Dr Sanders also presented the true transosseous hybrid anchor technique for utilizing the strengths of both anchors and tunneling together to maximize clinical outcomes and decrease costs.
Transosseous repairs were shown to be safe and effective 12-18 years postop, from a longitudinal study presented by Dr. Fabian Plachel of Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Longterm results were found to have a mean ASES score of 92 at follow up.
Tensor Surgical is proud to participate in cutting edge events and to our ethos of “for surgeons, by surgeons.”
