Latarjet Procedure
Latarjet Procedure

When the shoulder dislocates, it damages the labrum and the ligaments that stabilize the ball and socket joint. Further dislocations can damage the glenoid socket and make the shoulder prone to more dislocations.

Latarjet Procedure

We can stabilize the shoulder using a transfer of the coracoid process of the shoulder.

This helps by adding width to the bone socket and by creating a muscle sling.

The bicep muscle sling stabilizes the shoulder dynamically when the shoulder is elevated.
