The treatment of anterior shoulder instability continues to evolve. Advancements in arthroscopic techniques have led to a recent shift to arthroscopic Bankart repair. This has been coupled with a development of new instrumentation, implants, and techniques. However, to obtain a successful outcome for patients with anterior instability, it is imperative that the surgeon be aware of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative factors associated with the recognition and proper treatment of instability pathology. In this chapter, we will present several important techniques, pathologies, and concepts regarding the effective diagnosis and treatment of patients with anterior instability using arthroscopic techniques.
