Bone loss in the setting of shoulder instability is an unsolved problem. Procedures restoring bone stock on the glenoid side vary from minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques of arthroscopic bone block procedures to traditional transposition of the coracoid or bone transplant. These techniques are evolving, and several tips and tricks have been optimized to improve outcomes and to reduce the risk of complications, even though the most terrible complication of transposition of the coracoid remains osteoarthritis in the young adult. The major innovation in the past few years has been the use of remplissage. The aim of our surgical procedures is to restore the anatomy as much as possible. Therefore, gentle handling of bone defects on both the humeral and glenoid sides by means of an arthroscopic bone block and combined remplissage seems to be the future of our surgical procedures.

Abstract

Bone loss in the setting of shoulder instability is an unsolved problem. Procedures restoring bone stock on the glenoid side vary from minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques of arthroscopic bone block procedures to traditional transposition of the coracoid or bone transplant. These techniques are evolving, and several tips and tricks have been optimized to improve outcomes and to reduce the risk of complications, even though the most terrible complication of transposition of the coracoid remains osteoarthritis in the young adult. The major innovation in the past few years has been the use of remplissage. The aim of our surgical procedures is to restore the anatomy as much as possible. Therefore, gentle handling of bone defects on both the humeral and glenoid sides by means of an arthroscopic bone block and combined remplissage seems to be the future of our surgical procedures.
