Traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation is a common pathology. To inform the patient, it is therefore important to know the natural history of anterior dislocation and the long-term result of conservative treatment versus the long-term results of operative treatment. In this review article, we compare the effectiveness of various anatomical and non-anatomical interventions and between open and arthroscopic surgery. Evaluating of the result, we focused on the recurrence of instability, return to sport, and prevalence of articular cartilage degeneration in the several treatments.
