Shoulder Tendon Tears Result in Muscle Wasting

Mr. Tu, 63 years old, had been experiencing shoulder pain for many years due to heavy work. Recently, he had completely torn his rotator cuff tendon and had muscle atrophy. Dr. Ho Van Duy An, from the Orthopedics Trauma Center at Tam Anh General Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, diagnosed Mr. Tu with a serious tear in the rotator cuff tendon of his shoulder.

The rotator cuff muscle is made up of four tendons that play a crucial role in arm extension and shoulder rotation movements. Mr. Tu had a complete transverse tear of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons, leading to significant damage. Due to his continued strenuous activities without rest, the tear worsened over time, resulting in muscle atrophy and degeneration of the tendons.

To address this issue, Dr. An recommended a tendon graft using an allograft, a medical material made from human skin. The allograft acts as a bridge for the torn tendon to heal and attach to, improving the success rate of the surgery.

The surgery was performed using an endoscopic method, a minimally invasive technique with low infection risks. Within days after the surgery, Mr. Tu experienced relief from pain and improved mobility in his shoulder joint.

Dr. An emphasizes the importance of early detection and treatment of shoulder injuries to prevent complications. Timely intervention can help avoid long-term weakness or loss of movement as well as reduce the risk of developing shoulder arthritis.
