Mayo Clinic Course on Shoulder Tendon Transfers and Complex Rotator Cuff Repair 2019

Rochester, MN US
April 25, 2019 to April 27, 2019

Course Directors: Bassem T. Elhassan, M.D.,  Joaquin Sanchez-Sotelo, M.D., Ph.D.

This course will provide cutting-edge presentations, cadaver demonstrations, and cadaver-based workshops on the management of complex rotator cuff tears and conditions affecting the scapulothoracic joint. The course will highlight the principles, surgical techniques and outcomes of tendon transfers around the shoulder joint and scapula, advanced arthroscopically-assisted tendon transfers, and alternative salvage procedures such as reconstruction of the superior capsule, reverse shoulder arthroplasty and shoulder/scapulothoracic fusion. A portion of the course will allow attendees to perform tendon transfers on whole torso and upper extremity cadaveric specimens.

Course Highlights 

  • Focus on shoulder tendon transfers and complex cuff reconstruction
  • World-renowned national and international faculty
  • Cadaver lab using a whole torso with both upper extremities
  • One-on-one faculty to attendee interaction during the cadaver lab
  • Sessions dedicated to interactive case discussions with our faculty
  • Gala reception, including dinner, live music and dancing

  • To learn technical pearls regarding modern tendon transfers for reconsrtruction of shoulders with an irreparable rotator cuff tear, using both open and arthroscopic tehniques, for posterosuperior tears, anterosuperior tears, or combined tears.
  • To understand the value of reverse arthroplasty in the patients with massive irreparable cuff tears and the need to add tendon transfers in the same surgical setting, or to consider them after reverse if needed.
  • To understand the physical examination of the scapula as well as the various tendon transfers for dysfunction of the serratus anterior, trapezius, and others.
