Surgical methods for shoulder instability
Modified procedure in accordance with Bankart ("drill hole method"):
Drill holes are placed over the sulcus on the anterior edge of the glenoid rim, protecting the articular cartilage. The unstable joint capsule is re-estabilised by sewing through these drill holes towards the glenoid rim.
Anatomical reconstruction of the anterior glenoid defect with an intraarticulary implanted J-shaped cortico-cancellous bone graft from the iliac crest.
Arthroscopic extraarticular Bankart operation:
Using an antero-inferior transmuscular arthroscopic portal, the detatched capsule is reattached to the anterior glenoid rim using resorbable pins. . .
