Arthroscopic shoulder stabilization techniques continue to evolve. Arthroscopic repairs may consist of labrum and capsule reattachment to the glenoid with suture anchors, capsular tensioning with sutures as in plications, capsular shifts, or closure of intervals as in the rotator capsular interval, and further tensioning of the capsule using heat-generated shrinkage technique. A combination of these techniques can produce success rates comparable to those possible in open surgery and with reduced morbidity. Arthroscopic surgery provides a complete interarticular view and permits surgical repair in multiple locations within the joint through standard portals.
