We report a technique of an arthroscopic concomitant Bankart repair with a transfer of the coracoid bone block and conjoint tendons for revision anterior shoulder instability.
The operative procedure consists of an arthroscopic transfer of the conjoined tendon with a coracoid and arthroscopic Bankart repair. First, a typical Bankart suture anchor procedure with two suture anchors was performed into the antero-inferior part of the glenoid rim. After, tenodesis of the coraco-biceps tendon was performed in the middle of the subscapularis tendon fixing the coracoid bony fragment into a glenoid socket with a bioabsorbable interference screw.
This operative technique is an alternative in the treatment of revision anterior shoulder instability in patients with deficient anterior capsule.
