The shoulder is a highly mobile joint, capable of multiple motions in various planes. As a result, the stability of the joint is compromised. Recurrent shoulder instability can be a career-ending injury for the athlete, as well as the physically active individual. It can also be an overall costly health concern. Traumatic dislocations of the glenohumeral joint (GH), or chronic dislocations or subluxations can result in injury to the fibrocartilaginous glenoid labrum. After articular imaging and physician consultation, surgical management to correct the instability is typically warranted. The Latarjet technique is one such option for surgical treatments. Originally described by French surgeon, Dr. Michel Latarjet in 1954, the procedure involves movement of the coracoid process (following osteotomization) and attached tendons (short head of the biceps brachii and the coracobrachialis) to the anterior glenoid rim, which results in increased stability of the shoulder. The Latarjet procedure has been shown to have successful return to sport rates with high level contact athletes. It has also been shown to be more reliable in restoring shoulder stability and functionality than the Bankart Repair. While not necessary or appropriate for every patient experiencing recurrent shoulder instability, the Latarjet technique may provide stability and relief of symptoms.
1) Distinguish the role of the Latarjet procedure following recurrent shoulder instability.
2) Describe the anatomical structures associated with the Latarjet procedure and
understand the surgical procedure.
3) Implement gained knowledge in the rehabilitation process following the Latarjet
4) Examine outcomes of different surgical procedures for shoulder instability as
compared to the Latarjet.
