Case Presentation
A 24-year-old male who plays ice hockey presented with recurrent left shoulder instability. He has a history of multiple dislocations to his left shoulder. Six years prior, he had undergone an arthroscopic Bankart procedure with metallic anchors; the procedure was performed at another hospital.
The patient had been doing well until he fell 3 years after the repair. Since the fall, he has sustained multiple dislocation events, each time with less force. Now he is dislocating at rest, with significant subjective instability of the shoulder. Multiple dislocations have required reduction in the emergency department.
