Although posterior shoulder instability accounts for only 5% of all glenohumeral instability, surgeons must understand posterior shoulder instability to effectively manage associated pathology. Given the considerable negative effect of posterior shoulder instability and its associated pathology on quality of life, a firm knowledge of the most current techniques for surgical management is necessary. This video reviews the most current surgical techniques for repair of posterior labrum tears and reverse humeral avulsion glenohumeral ligament tears. The video also reviews the most current surgical techniques for reconstruction of the humeral head to manage reverse Hill-Sachs lesions. The indications and contraindications for the surgical management of each of these pathologies and key pearls and pitfalls for a successful outcome will be reviewed.
