Superior Capsular Reconstruction (SCR) for Pseudoparalysis
Stephen S. Burkhart, MD, (San Antonio, TX) shares a case where he performed a Superior Capsular Reconstruction (SCR) using an ArthroFLEX®* SCR human dermal allograft in a patient who had a massive cuff tear with pseudoparalysis. The patient was an active 72-year-old rancher who was not a good candidate for an arthroplasty solution. Dr. Burkhart shows the patient at 1-year follow-up and highlights how the SCR was able to provide a biologic solution to reverse his pseudoparalysis.
