Soft tissue injuries to the capsule and labrum are the most common and can usually be addressed with arthroscopic Bankart repair
8) This bone loss is also associated with higher failure rates of the arthroscopic Bankart repair
and therefore a bony procedure may be necessary.
The new comprehensive ARTHRO Mentor training curriculum now being introduced teaches the basics for various arthroscopic procedures and contains a set of online courses for the following procedures: Diagnostic knee arthroscopy, Microfractures, ACL reconstruction, Bankart repair
and Rotator cuff repair.
25,27) Isolated soft-tissue stabilization with an all-arthroscopic revision Bankart repair
can be successfully performed in symptomatic patients with unidirectional instability and absence of a Hill-Sachs lesion or a non-engaging lesion.
Arthroscopic Bankart Repair
and Capsular Shift for Recurrent Anterior Shoulder Instability: Functional Outcomes and Identification of Risk Factors for Recurrence
In a similar case report, Chapovsky and Kelly (29) described the use of three osteochondral allograft plugs implanted arthroscopically for the treatment of recurrent instability secondary to an engaging Hill-Sachs lesion in a 16-year-old male patient following Bankart repair
Long-term independent evaluation after arthroscopic extra-articular Bankart repair
with absorbable tacks.
This can lead to two common injuries: 1) chronic shoulder instability, in which the ligaments tear away from the bone (a surgical technique called the Bankart Repair
reattaches the ligaments to the glenoid bone); and 2) tears in the rotator cuff, which are the tendons that attach shoulder muscles to bone.
In comparing those arthroscopic procedures, in which fifth-year residents reported that they were allowed to perform versus those which the director thought they were allowed to perform, there was a significant difference in the following procedures: lateral release, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tunnel creation, meniscal repair, Bankart repair
, and rotator cuff repair (Fig.
Recently, in a cadaveric study, Itoi and coworkers (21) found decreased stability to anterior glenohumeral translation after Bankart repair
in the presence of a glenoid defect larger than 21%.

One patient underwent thermal capsular shrinkage; the other two patients underwent capsulorrhaphy procedures, one staple capsulorrhaphy and one reverse Bankart repair
