SURGICAL PEARLS: Avoiding Intraoperative Complications in Shoulder Instability Surgery

    Surgical repair of shoulder instability can fail for many reasons, as enumerated by Evan L. Flatow, MD, at ICJR’s 8th Annual Shoulder Course:

    • Wrong diagnosis
    • Missed bone loss
    • Too loose
    • Too tight
    • Arthritis
    • Hardware (especially metal)
    • Nerve injury

    Dr. Flatow, from Mount Sinai West and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, has seen a number of instability repairs fail in his more than 30 years of practice, and in this presentation, he offers tips, tricks, and techniques for avoiding those failures.
