How is arthroscopic bankart repair surgery performed?
The treatment is performed via a minimally invasive technique called arthroscopy. First, the surgeon creates a few tiny incisions in the shoulder joint region, through which an arthroscope is inserted. An arthroscope is a slender tubular instrument with a light and a camera attachment. Then, the surgeon trims the edges of the glenoid cavity and attaches suture anchors to reattach the detached labrum.
Anterior shoulder dislocation vs posterior shoulder dislocation
Anterior shoulder dislocations are the most common dislocations. They usually occur due to forced or abnormal abduction, external rotation and extension motions of the joint. They are characterized by shallow anterior glenoid contours that predispose them to recurrent shoulder dislocations. They are usually managed by closed reduction and immobilization of the joint. Surgical repair is not necessary unless it is accompanied by complications like bankart tear, labrum tear, etc.
Posterior shoulder dislocations are much less common and are a little more challenging to diagnose. They are more common in patients with convulsive disorders, like epilepsy, seizure disorder, etc. Occasionally, they can occur due to strength imbalance in the rotator cuff muscles. They can easily go unnoticed, especially in elderly patients. They are difficult to treat via closed reduction, and an expert ortho surgeon should be requested to reduce them. However, if the dislocation occurred over 3 weeks ago, then surgical treatment may be necessary.
