Bony Bankart lesions are avulsion fractures of the anterior glenoid rim, and are associated with anteroinferior glenohumeral instability. Avulsion fratures occur when the glenohumeral joint dislocates, which is typically more common in men than women. Arthroscopic treatment of bony Bankart lesions can be challenging. This study presents a new innovative, and reproducible technique for an arthroscopic procedure to treat bony Bankart fragments.
