Shoulder Instability: Alternative Surgical Techniques

Over the past few years, international literature has highlighted the limitations of arthroscopic treatment for antero-inferior instability of the shoulder. Therefore, the question arises as to which technique – open surgery or arthroscopy – may represent the best alternative to the classical arthroscopic capsuloplasty. The volume is organized into eight chapters and presents eight different techniques. Each chapter describes the non-surgical and surgical algorithms for the treatment of unidirectional and multidirectional antero-inferior instabilities, with and without shoulder laxity.

The chapters offer a detailed description of each technique, enhanced by 10–15 high-definition photographs, tips, tricks and pitfalls, as well as surgical steps. The book is aimed at medical students, fellows, specialists, orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists, and rehabilitation and generalist physicians.
