Techniques-Glenoid Bone Deficiency

Although osteoarticular pathology rarely is a cause of anterior instability, it is essential that it be ruled out prior to proceeding with any soft-tissue stabilization procedure or in the revision setting. A small subset of patients may be predisposed to instability due to developmental glenoid dysplasia, or pathologic flattening or hypoconcavity of the glenoid as […]

Skeletal Lesions

The limited constraint provided by the glenoid is further decreased by bony lesions of the anterior or posterior glenoid rim. These lesions may result from an osseous (anterior or posterior) Bankart lesion, a displaced glenoid fracture, or wear and erosion of the glenoid rim as a result of multiple recurrent dislocations. Burkhart and De Beer […]

Patellar Dislocation

Basics Description Patellar dislocation usually refers to lateral displacement of the patella out of its normal alignment in the trochlear groove of the femur. The patella is held stable by ligamentous forces, muscular forces, and bony anatomy. Disruption of any of these 3 components can lead to recurrent patellar instability. Classification: Subluxation: Patella sits […]
