Recurrent anterior gleonohumeral instability is the most frequent joint instability of the body. Because of the complex stability mechanisms and diverse instability patterns of the glenohumeral joint, most cases present with more than one anatomic cause. Thus, the treatment of recurrent anterior instability of the shoulder should be designed to treat these pathologies. Although arthroscopic repair has outweighed the use of open surgical methods especially for the first dislocations, recurrent dislocations still require open repair techniques to overcome capsular laxity accompanying a Bankart lesion.
