Chapter 03 Video 1: Subscapularis Tenotomy in the Deltopectoral Approach

May 02, 2016

Contributors: Justin Yang, MD; Robert A Arciero, MD

Together, the subscapularis muscle and tendon provide more than half the strength of the rotator cuff. The subscapularis tendon lies anterior to the glenohumeral joint and overlays the anterior capsule laterally as it inserts onto the lesser tuberosity. Managing the subscapularis tendon is of critical importance in any procedure in which the glenohumeral joint is accessed via the deltopectoral approach. Many techniques to manage the subscapularis tendon have been developed, including subscapularis peel, tenotomy (complete or partial), lesser tuberosity osteotomy, subscapularis split, and subscapularis retraction.
