Although the Bankart lesion is accepted as the primary pathology responsible for recurrent shoulder instability, recognition of other soft-tissue lesions has improved the surgical treatment for this common problem. Whereas humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligaments has been acknowledged as a cause of anterior shoulder instability, we have not found any reported cases of glenoid avulsion of the glenohumeral ligaments. We describe 3 cases of recurrent anterior shoulder instability due to glenoid avulsion of the glenohumeral ligaments. The avulsed ligaments were repaired to the labrum and glenoid, restoring the glenohumeral ligament-labral complex.

Anterior glenoid bone loss is present in nearly all cases of recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability. Treating glenoid bone loss in the setting of recurrent instability is challenging, and often, ...
Shoulder dislocations are a common injury, with anterior shoulder dislocation among male patients being the most common presentation. A patient with recurrent shoulder instability, anterior-superior e...
Assessment of glenohumeral subluxation is essential in preoperative planning of total shoulder arthroplasty. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a 3-dimensional (3D) glenohumeral subluxation ind...
Epileptic seizures can cause dislocation of the shoulder. Recurrent instability is common and occurs soon after the first dislocation. Significant bone loss from the humeral head and glenoid is though...
Locked anterior shoulder (LAS) with static instability and anterior glenoid bone loss is challenging in the elderly population. Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) has been employed in treating these ...
Anterior dislocation of the shoulder (glenohumeral joint) is one of the most prevalent dislocations. Following a first dislocation recurrence rates of up to 80% have been reported. Many pa...
The objective of this randomized controlled study is to obtain outcomes data on the Zimmer TM glenoid component by analysis of standard scoring systems and radiographs in comparison to the...
Dislocation of the glenohumeral joint is the most common traumatic joint dislocation. The usual treatment of first time traumatic anterior dislocation of the shoulder is reduction followed...
Objective: Symptomatic pan-labral or circumferential (360 degree) tears of the glenohumeral labrum are an uncommon injury. The purpose of this study is to report the prospective surgical...
Shoulder dislocations are common and may result in functionally disabling instability. Disruption of the shoulder capsuloligamentous complex during shoulder dislocation is related to poor ...
The articulation between the head of the HUMERUS and the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA.
The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.
Unilateral or bilateral pain of the shoulder. It is often caused by physical activities such as work or sports participation, but may also be pathologic in origin.
Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.
