What is the Putti Platt procedure?

What is the Putti Platt procedure?

Putti-Platt is one of the surgical treatment options for anterior shoulder instability. In this procedure, the flexible cord (tendon) of the subscapularis muscle is cut and then reattached to the head of the upper arm bone (humerus).

What is double breasting of subscapularis tendon?

The procedure is based on the concept of tightening the anterior capsule and subscapularis with a subsequent accepted loss of external rotation in order to increase the stability of the shoulder. It has been described as a “vest over pants” approach and a “double-breasted” technique.

What is Latarjet shoulder procedure?

The Latarjet procedure is a technique used to restore stability to the shoulder joint. Developed by a French surgeon in the 1950s, it is commonly performed when there is significant bone loss in the front of the glenoid (the shallow socket in the shoulder blade) from repeat dislocations.

What is a Bankart procedure?

A Bankart repair is a surgical procedure to prevent recurring anterior shoulder dislocations due to instability in the back of the shoulder. The most common form of shoulder ligament injury is the Bankart lesion, where the ligaments are torn from the front of the socket.

What is a reverse Hill-Sachs lesion?

Reverse Hill-Sachs defect, also called a McLaughlin lesion, is defined as an impaction fracture of anteromedial aspect of the humeral head following posterior dislocation of the humerus. It is of surgical importance to identify this lesion and correct it to prevent avascular necrosis.

What is the action of the subscapularis muscle?

The subscapularis rotates the head of the humerus medially (internal rotation) and adducts it; when the arm is raised, it draws the humerus forward and downward. It is a powerful defense to the front of the shoulder-joint, preventing displacement of the head of the humerus.

What is subscapularis tendon?

The subscapularis muscle is one of the four muscles that arise from the shoulder blade and attach to the humeral head. The tendons of these four muscles make up the rotator cuff. The subscapularis muscle comes off the front of the shoulder blade and helps you reach behind your back.

Is Shoulder surgery serious?

Shoulder surgery is a common but major surgery with serious risks and potential complications. You may have less invasive treatment options.

What is the average recovery time for shoulder surgery?

The rotator cuff surgery recovery timeline can vary case by case, but a full recovery typically takes four to six months. It may take longer than that to return to heavy lifting.

How painful is Bankart surgery?

Arthroscopic Bankart repair results in minimal pain and trauma and less scarring and damage to surrounding tissue than traditional open surgery. There is also a shorter recovery period and a shorter length of rehabilitation than with traditional open surgery.

How long does a Bankart repair surgery take?

‍The arthroscopic Bankart repair is performed under a general anaesthetic. The surgery takes about an hour. You will be in the operating theatre complex for several hours as you need to be prepared for anaesthesia and then will need to wake up from the anaesthetic. Normally patients stay one night in hospital.
