Abstract

Posterior glenohumeral instability is an underappreciated cause of disability that may necessitate surgical intervention to allow functional glenoid restoration. However, posterior glenoid bone abnormalities, when sufficiently severe, may contribute to persistent instability despite a well-performed capsulolabral repair. Recognition and understanding of these lesions is critical to both surgical decision making and execution of the surgical plan. Numerous procedures have been described to address posterior instability including recent developments in arthroscopic grafting techniques. The purpose of this article was to provide an evidence-based strategy for diagnosis and management of posterior shoulder instability and glenoid bone loss.
