Both open and arthroscopic anterior shoulder stabilization procedures are commonly performed to address shoulder instability and have been shown to be successful in restoring shoulder stability and patient function. However, a critical review of the risk factors for recurrent instability following anterior stabilization is required to determine which patients may benefit from open stabilization, as recurrence rates following arthroscopic stabilization have historically been higher than with open stabilization. Multiple prospective studies have implicated younger patient age, capsular stretching, ligamentous laxity, contact athletics, and glenoid or humeral bone loss as risk factors for arthroscopic anterior shoulder stabilization failure [1–7].
