Chapter 04 Video 1: Infraspinatus - Capsular Reconstruction for Posterior Instabiltiy

May 02, 2016

Contributors: Richard J Hawkins, MD

This video is a cadaveric demonstration of an infraspinatus and capsular reconstruction for posterior shoulder instability. The procedure is typically performed arthroscopically, but the demonstration is open with a liberal incision that allows for retraction. The incision is made from the corner of the acromion to the axilla, and the posterior deltoid is split down to the infraspinatus. The infraspinatus and capsule are incised at the joint line parallel to the glenoid. The infraspinatus tendon and capsule are sutured to the labrum. Range of motion is checked to ensure 20 degrees of internal rotation. Mattress sutures close the infraspinatus. The arm is splinted to an abducted position with the hand pointing straight forwards.
