Editorial Commentary: Computed Tomography-based Analysis of the Arthroscopic Latarjet Procedure Suggests Graft Positioning Is More Variable than Expected


Ernstbrunner, Lukas; Gerber, Christian (2018). Editorial Commentary: Computed Tomography-based Analysis of the Arthroscopic Latarjet Procedure Suggests Graft Positioning Is More Variable than Expected. Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic & Related Surgery, 34(7):2041-2044.

Abstract

The Latarjet operation is one of the most successful techniques for the treatment of recurrent anterior shoulder instability, which has recently been translated into the arthroscopic field. Several studies suggest that its arthroscopic variant is safe and reproducible and report promising short-term and mid-term results. Some authors claim that, in addition to less soft tissue damage, positioning of the coracoid graft is more accurate during arthroscopic control. There is currently no evidence of superiority of the arthroscopic or the open technique. As with the open procedure, the arthroscopic Latarjet operation requires a substantial learning curve; therefore the arthroscopic technique should be reserved for experienced arthroscopists treating a large number of shoulder instabilities.
