Abstract

Recurrent shoulder instability in young contact athletes has been well established. The importance of bipolar bone loss in instability has come to the forefront in terms of proper management of this condition. It remains controversial, however, which patients would be better served with an arthroscopic versus open procedure and when additional procedures may reduce the risk of failure (i.e., remplissage). We present our arthroscopic technique of a panlabral repair with concomitant remplissage using the double-pulley technique. The purpose of this article is to provide insight into obtaining superior visualization while reviewing surgical pearls and pitfalls to efficiently perform a panlabral repair and remplissage.
