The shoulder is the most commonly dislocated joint in the body. The primary restraint to anterior instability is the anterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament, where lesions are found after dislocation. The amount of surgical plication required to eliminate instability and maintain full range of shoulder motion remains unclear. We performed tensile testing with the shoulder in abduction and external rotation in 11 human, fresh-frozen, cadaveric glenohumeral joints to improve… CONTINUE READING
