Description: Arthroscopic treatments improve function, strength, and range of motion in athletes with multidirectional shoulder instability, according to a report in the September issue of The American Journal of Sports Medicine. (Am J Sports Med 2009;37:1712-1720)
Though numerous arthroscopic techniques have been described for treatment of multidirectional shoulder instability, most studies have only looked at short-term outcomes.
Dr. Mathew W. Pombo from the Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Institute, Duluth, Georgia and colleagues evaluated 40 athletes (43 shoulders) at an average of 33.5 months after they underwent arthroscopic reconstruction for shoulder multidirectional instability.
