Abstract

Follow up of 176 patients among 223 who underwent 232 repairs for recurrent shoulder dislocation (average follow up, 10.2 years) revealed a recurrence rate of 11%. Among the 20 with recurrence, important factors were youth, athletic activity, inadequate immobilization, a history of contralateral dislocation, and a family history of shoulder dislocation. Redislocation occurred 2 years or more after operation in 7 of the 20 patients with recurrence. Surgical repair permitted good function without significant pain in most cases.
