Young Athletes with Shoulder Instability Have Low Revision Rates and High Return to Sport Rates After Arthroscopic Anterior Shoulder Stabilization

American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM)

However, according to researchers presenting their work today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Annual Meeting in San Diego outcomes may be improved by proper patient selection and reserving arthroscopic stabilization for athletes with fewer incidents of pre-operative instability.
