Abstract

A total of 47 patients affected with recurrent multidirectional shoulder dislocation with a prevalent anteroinferior component were submitted to Neer inferior capsular shift surgery. Bankart lesion, present in 24 patients, was repaired prior to performing capsuloligamentous surgery. The patients included in the study presented with generalized ligamentous hyperlaxity in 20 cases, while hyperlaxity was localized in the pathological shoulder in the remaining cases, presumably related to the high number of dislocations. The choice of performing Neer inferior capsular shift surgery was initially based on the data and the modern conceptions that emerged in the literature. Successively, the good results obtained encouraged us to follow the path taken, and we are currently encouraged to advise this surgical procedure for the category of patients mentioned above.
