Background. Traumatic shoulder instability is a common sequel following first shoulder dislocation, especially in young population (< 30 y.a). Shoulder arthroscopy is getting more and more popular among orthopaedic community. Efficacy of arthroscopic treatment of shoulder instability approaches that of conventional operative techniques.
Aim. The purpose of the study was the analysis of arthroscopic treatment of traumatic shoulder instability.
Material and methods. Study was based on 22 patients, 24 shoulders were operated. Capsulolabral complex has been stabilized arthroscopically in all patients.
Functional was assessed by means of ASES, UCLA and SST scores. Function was improved significantly. There has been no recurrence of instability in follow-up period.
Conclusions. We have proved good efficacy of arthroscopic techniques in treatment of the instability.
Joint stability was restored with decreased invasiveness of operation (better cosmesis, easier rehabilitation).
