Abstract

We present our technique for diagnosis and arthroscopic repair of a floating posterior-inferior glenohumeral ligament avulsion injury. A high degree of suspicion based on the patient's history, along with careful examination, should alert the surgeon to the existence of this lesion. By use of an anterolateral viewing portal and precisely placed posterior working portals, the lesion is repaired through suture anchor fixation to the humeral head and glenoid rim in a carefully sequenced fashion to achieve appropriate tension and restore the anatomy.
