Summary: Arthroscopically Assisted Latarjet with Double Round Endobuttons fixation is safe and effective in restoring glenohumeral stability with bone deficiency
The objective of our research is to evaluate a new arthroscopically assisted Latarjet technique.
We evaluated the clinical and radiological findings in 60 patients with chronic recurrent anterior gleno-humeral instability.
Two recurrent anterior dislocations occurred at a minimum of two-year follow-up. Satisfactory clinical outcomes have been obtained. Healing rate of the graft was 96.7%, as evaluated at the CT scan. No neurologic injury or infections were detected.
This technique of arthroscopically assisted Latarjet combines mini-open and arthroscopic approach for improving the precision of the osseous tunnels in the glenoid and coracoid placement, minimising any potential risk of neurologic complications. It can be an option in subjects with anterior gleno-humeral instability and glenoid bone defect. Further studies should be performed to confirm our preliminary results.
