Irreparable ruptures of the subscapularis tendon lead to impaired function of the shoulder joint. In such cases, transfer of the pectoralis major tendon has led to encouraging results. The procedure fails periodically, typically associated with insufficient in-growth of the transferred tissue. We hypothesized that tendon harvest with chips of cancellous bone would improve the tendon-bone interface.
