The recurrence rate after acute, first-time instability of the shoulder joint is high, particularly in young people (i.e. under 20 years old). Non-operative treatment does not guarantee consistent results. Early stabilisation clearly benefits young athletes. Arthroscopic repair of the Bankart lesion in the shoulder can reduce recurrence, improve outcome, and avoid the frequent necessity for open, constructive procedures to treat recurrent instability.
