Arthroscopic repair of retracted adhesed rotator cuff tear is complicated by the fact that standard capsulotendinous releases seldom provide enough additional lateral excursion of the tendons for repair to bone. However, the stepwise incorporation of anterior interval slides, double interval slides, and interval slide in-continuity can dramatically increase the lateral excursion up to 5 cm., allowing for tension free repair to bone. This paper details the author's indications and techniques for performing these releases.
