Publication date: Available online 18 June 2018Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Jillian Karpyshyn, Erin E. Gordey, Catherine M. Coady, Ivan H. WongAbstractPosterior shoulder instability is an uncommon and challenging cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction. Surgical management has less reliable results and higher failure rates compared with techniques for anterior shoulder instability. The presence of generalized ligamentous laxity further complicates options for surgical management. If primary capsulolabral repair fails, controversy exists as to the optimal revision procedure.

We present an all-arthroscopic technique involving extra-articular anterior and posterior glenoid bone grafting to augment a capsular repair in a patient with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and recurrent multidirectional shoulder instability. Graft options include either distal tibial allograft or iliac crest autograft. Anterior graft placement uses a dilated far medial portal using an inside-out technique. The posterior graft is placed through a dilated posterior portal. A 1-mm edge of anterior and posterior glenoid rim is denuded of cartilage for later capsular repair, and grafts are secured flush to the osseous surface. A capsu...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Joint hypermobility (JH) is the hallmark of many hereditary soft connective tissue disorders, including Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and related disorders, disorders of the TGFβ-pathway, lateral meningocele syndrome, arterial tortuosity syndrome and cutis laxa syndromes. Contemporary practice separates individuals with isolated, non-syndromic JH, from patients with Mendelian syndromes and those with hypermobility spectrum disorders. The latter is a new nosologic entity grouping together individuals with JH and related musculoskeletal manifestations, but lacking inclusion criteria for well-de...
