After measuring the internal ring diameter, we performed the internal ring suturing using the following methods: the pectineal ligament was punctured using the suture needle, and the false sac was pulled into the preperitoneal space; the suture needle was then used to penetrate the base of the sac and puncture through the conjoined tendon arch; as a result, the upper and lower edges of the defect as well as the false sac were sutured together after knotting (Figures 6-9).
After deep retractor placement under the conjoined tendon, the tuberosities can be tagged at the respective myotendinous junction, and any residual supraspinatus is resected to the spine of the scapula and off of the greater tuberosity (Fig.
