Fifty cases of recurrent dislocation of the shoulder operated according to the Putti-Platt method modified by lateralization of the insertion of the coracoid processes are reported. Excellent results were obtained in 86% of the cases. There was neither incidence of recurrence, nor degenerative joint alteration. Mild limitation in extrarotation (less than 10 degrees) was observed in 7 cases.
