Arthroscopic Revision Surgery of Failed Open Bankart Repair: Case Reports

Sedeek Mohamed Sedeek, Tan Hwee Andrew

Abstract


The clinical outcome of revision surgery for the failed Bankart repair is not well known. The purpose of this case study is to report the success rates achieved in two cases using arthroscopic techniques to revise failed open Bankart repairs. Both patients showed significant improvements in terms of shoulder stability and function at post-arthroscopic revision with no recurrences on follow-up. Their overall function and stability were evidenced by the improvements in shoulder scores and subjective scoring. In conclusion, arthroscopic revision of failed open anterior shoulder stabilisation using suture anchors is a reliable procedure in relation to the recurrence rate, range of motion and shoulder function in carefully selected patients, and with a proper workup.
