Anterior Instability Should Be Treated Arthroscopically-Affirms

Michael Reyes, Ken Yamaguchi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Arthroscopic instability repair now is fast becoming the treatment of choice for surgical treatment. In comparison to open techniques, modern arthroscopic repair offers the same failure rates while providing several documented and theoretical advantages. These include the absence of a subscapularis tendon takedown, decreased effects to the proprioceptive function of the capsule, easier revisions, decrease range of motion loss, improved cosmesis, and decreased perioperative morbidity.
