They did not a have large anterior glenoid defect or Hill-Sacks lesion.15 patients were graded excellent,2 good by Rowe's grading system after 30 (12-40) months follow-u p. The recurrence rate was 0%. The mean loss of ER was 9°(arm at side),4°(90° abduction). This operation for selected patients restored the stability of the shoulder and led to the same favorable outcome as open surgery.
