OBJECTIVE: Postoperative imaging after surgery for anterior glenohumeral instability poses a great challenge, which can be compounded by a lack of familiarity with the many different operative techniques and their expected normal appearances and complications. In this article, we discuss the postoperative imaging appearances of anterior glenohumeral instability surgery with a review of currently recommended treatment guidelines.
CONCLUSION: It is important for radiologists to accurately detect complications of anterior shoulder instability surgery at postoperative imaging.
