Summary

Shoulder instability is a common pathology in young or athletic adult that results in chronic dislocations or subluxations. When multiple dislocations episodes occur, surgical treatment is indicated. But this treatment really stabilizes the joint or only prevents it to dislocate?

The objective of this study is to investigate and compare the shoulder stability in patients with anterior instability by performing a dynamic motion capture analysis before and after surgical treatment. The results of this study will provide a better understanding of this disease, and evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed surgical treatment.
