Experimental work has shown that dislocation of the shoulder may involve disruption of the capsule from its lateral humeral attachment. We report two patients with recurrent dislocation due to this injury. Lateral repair gave good results. It is suggested that this injury be considered and looked for when glenoid labral injury is minimal or absent.
