abstract

  • Rates of recurrent instability after a first-time anterior shoulder dislocation, particularly in young active male patients, are reduced by surgical intervention compared with nonoperative treatment. If surgical treatment is indicated, an arthroscopic approach using suture anchors appears to have similar results in terms of recurrent instability to an open approach using suture anchors.
