This 5-year to 8-year follow-up study showed arthroscopic osseous Bankart repair is efficacious for patients with greater than 15% loss of the inferior glenoid diameter and can provide normalized glenoid morphology as well as low rates of dislocation.
Young athletes were found to be at an elevated risk for injury as they aged, engaged in sport-specialized training and when they spent a disproportionate amount of time in organized sports vs. free play time, according to study data. Researchers evaluated survey data from 822 injured athletes (age range: 7 to 18 years) between 2010 […]
Even after successful arthroscopic Bankart repair and capsular shift, women, elite athletes and patients with frequent dislocations were at high risk of capsular restretching, according to study results. Researchers evaluated the functional outcomes of 105 patients who underwent arthroscopic Bankart repair and capsular shift for anterior shoulder instability and computed tomography arthrography (CTA) at 3 […]
