Pectoralis Major Repair
Rupture of the pectoralis major tendon typically occurs following violent, eccentric contraction of the muscle. Tendon repair is indicated in healthy, active individuals with complete or high-grade partial tears involving the humeral insertion of the muscle. Repair is achieved with unicortical buttons and sutures which are tensioned to bring the tendon stump down to its native footprint.
