Abstract: Large glenoid bone loss defects are associated with higher failure rates after arthroscopic Bankart repair in cases of glenohumeral anterior instability, further necessitating bone graft reconstruction. Because most techniques use strong initial fixation using metal devices, bone graft resorption considered to be closely related to the presence of metal components is a potential shortcoming of these techniques. We describe an arthroscopic technique for anatomical reconstruction of the glenoid that uses a tricortical iliac crest with a metal-free fixation method using 2 ultra-high-strength sutures (FiberTape Cerclage System; Arthrex, Naples, FL), which provide substantial stability to the graft, and finishing with a capsulolabral reconstruction.
