Summary Over the past few years, international literature has highlighted the limitations of arthroscopic treatment for antero-inferior instability of the shoulder. Therefore, the question arises as to which technique - open surgery or arthroscopy - may represent the best alternative to the classical arthroscopic capsuloplasty. The volume is organized into eight chapters and presents eight different techniques. Each chapter describes the non-surgical and surgical algorithms for the treatment of unidirectional and multidirectional antero-inferior instabilities, with and without shoulder laxity. The chapters offer a detailed description of each technique, enhanced by 10-15 high-definition photographs, tips, tricks and pitfalls, as well as surgical steps. The book is aimed at medical students, fellows, specialists, orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists, and rehabilitation and generalist physicians
