PURPOSE The aims of this study were to evaluate the incidence of anchor penetration of the far cortex of the glenoid neck after arthroscopic Bankart repair and to compare the biomechanical properties of anchors in the 4- and 5:30- to 6-o'clock positions on the glenoid. METHODS Twelve (6 matched pairs) fresh-frozen human cadaveric shoulders were used to simulate arthroscopic Bankart repair in the lateral decubitus position. The most inferior anchor (5:30 to 6 o'clock) and that above it (4 o… CONTINUE READING
