Shoulder arthroscopic procedures have become common in today’s orthopedic practice. The safety of shoulder arthroscopy though well established, is not without complications both minor and significant. The true incidence of complications is difficult to identify in the current literature. However, as with all procedures, complications associated with shoulder arthroscopy do occur. General complications (ie, infection), those specific to shoulder arthroscopy (ie, positioning) and those associated… Expand
Patient Positioning in Shoulder Arthroscopy: Which is Best?
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to summarize setup and technical aspects, the advantages and disadvantages, and the possible complications of the LD and BC positions in shoulder arthroscopy. Expand
A detached arthroscopic lens within the shoulder joint: a case report
TLDR
This case warrants the need for the surgeon and the operating room staff to be well acquainted with the arthroscopic instruments and to check the instruments properly before and after the completion of the procedure. Expand
Neurological Complications Related to Elective Orthopedic Surgery: Part 1: Common Shoulder and Elbow Procedures
TLDR
Part 1 of this narrative review series on neurological complications of elective orthopedic surgery describes the mechanisms and likelihood of peripheral nerve injury associated with some of the most common shoulder and elbow procedures, including open andArthroscopic shoulder procedures, elbow arthroscopy, and total shoulder and elbows replacement. Expand
Fluid Extravasation in Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Fuid extravasation has the potential to be a life-threatening complication of shoulder arthroscopic surgery; however, it is most commonly managed nonoperatively, and symptoms typically resolve with no evidence of long-term complications. Expand
Complications Following Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Tear Repair
TLDR
The literature does not consistently report on complications after ARCR, making valid comparison of the incidence of these events among published reports impossible, and the variation in criteria used to diagnose shoulder stiffness is problematic for valid and accurate reporting of this event. Expand
Complications of the Fingers and Hand After Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
TLDR
When symptoms in the fingers and hand occur after ARCR, rather than immediately suspecting CRPS, TS should be primarily suspected, including when TS symptoms such as triggering are not present, and these patients should be treated proactively using corticosteroid injections or surgery. Expand
A bizarre complication of shoulder arthroscopy
TLDR
An unusual complication of shoulder arthroscopy is presented, which was caused by incorrect location of the posterior portal, inducing neurapraxia of both the axillary and radial nerves, with significant clinical and functional sequelae. Expand
Arthroscopic Removal of Metallic Suture Anchors Placed after Bankart Repair
TLDR
Arthroscopy may yield an effective surgical option for removal of poorly positioned and/or proud metallic suture anchors after Bankart repair, however, further clinical reports on larger series are warranted to document the efficacy of this procedure in selected cases. Expand
Dual-camera technique for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.
TLDR
To improve visibility during the repair process, a second arthroscopic camera is introduced and it is found this technique has merit in small or partial-thickness rotator cuff tears; however, there may be other applications. Expand
Do diabetic patients have different outcomes after arthroscopic capsular release for frozen shoulder?
TLDR
Preoperative counselling and postoperative rehabilitation can be better tailored to treat diabetic patients with idiopathic frozen shoulder and ACR offered good outcomes in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients, however diabetic patients had poorer improvement in internal rotation and forward flexion postoperatively.

Complications in arthroscopic shoulder surgery.
TLDR
Evaluated a series of 179 consecutive arthroscopic and combined shoulder surgery procedures performed by the same surgeon, the overall complication rate was 9.49% and combined procedures had a 5.26% complication rate, respectively. Expand
Complications of shoulder arthroscopy.
TLDR
Electrosurgical instruments plus adequate distension pressure help minimize intraoperative bleeding, thus improving visualization, and subacromial space procedures are safe, with a very low complication rate of less than 1%; short-term results are favorable. Expand

TLDR
The literature on complication of arthroscopic shoulder surgery and their management is reviewed, finding that most studies suggest that the rate of complications is low, 5.8-9.5% in all recent review studies published. Expand
Complications of shoulder arthroscopy.
TLDR
The awareness of uncommon complications, such as deep venous thrombosis, pneumothorax, and iatrogenic rotator cuff tears will help the orthopedic surgeon to promptly diagnose and treat these problems. Expand

Much of the literature on shoulder arthroscopy is reviewed and some of the many pitfalls and preventative strategies that have been reported are discussed. Expand
Shoulder arthroscopy with the patient in the beach-chair position.
TLDR
The beach-chair, or sitting, position is evaluated for arthroscopic shoulder surgery in 50 consecutive patients, with no complications, and the advantages include ease of setup, lack of brachial plexus strain because no traction is used, excellent intraarticular visualization, and ease of conversion to the open approach if needed. Expand
Arthroscopic shoulder instability surgery. Complications.
TLDR
While cautiously proceeding toward a more complete understanding of the instability continuum, surgeons must maintain a high index of suspicion for new techniques that purport to "solve" the problem of arthroscopic shoulder stabilization, lest the history of enthusiastic but ultimately unsubstantiated claims is repeated.

TLDR
The most common complication was recognized as persistent stiffness that usually responded to extensive physical therapy and is similar to results published for open rotator cuff repair. Expand
Cutaneous nerve lesions of the shoulder and arm after arthroscopic shoulder surgery.
TLDR
Most of these areas of hypesthesia corresponded to lesions of cutaneous branches of the axillary nerve; the most likely cause was direct injury at the portal sites, particularly the lateral portal. Expand
