Recurrent shoulder dislocation prevented with combination Bankart repair and Bristow procedure

Although investigators of this study found a combination of Bankart repair and Bristow procedure prevented recurrent shoulder dislocation in rugby players, some patients complained of insufficiency in quality of their play when performing specific movements.

At a mean follow-up of 30.5 months, researchers found no recurrent dislocations among patients. Following surgery, the mean Rowe score improved significantly from 65 to 97.5, according to study results.
