Description: The bony conformity of the glenoid and humeral head articular surfaces provides some of the stability of the shoulder. Frequently, patients with recurrent dislocations have bony deficits in one or both of these sur- faces. Glenohumeral instability with substantial glenoid defects or engaging Hill–Sachs lesions poses a difficult challenge for orthopedic surgeons.
