Abstract

The authors describe the surgical method used and present the preliminary results obtained in 29 patients affected with recurrent anterior dislocation of the shoulder treated by Neer capsuloplasty and Statak screws. The long-term results were evaluated based on the Rowe system: the score was excellent in 18 cases, good in 2, fair in 4, and poor in 5. All of the patients resumed work activity, with no restrictions, within 4 months of the onset of functional rehabilitation. The use of Statak screws allows us to simplify surgery, while guaranteeing repair of the Bankart lesion, when present. The method reported permits correction of instability, without excessive reduction of joint movement.
