Journal Article (Journal Article)

CASE: In this case report, we presented the case of a 39-year-old male lawyer who presented to our tertiary care clinic with recurrent instability of his right shoulder and significant glenoid bone loss. This patient was treated with arthroscopic glenoid bone augmentation with his distal clavicle fixed with arthroscopic suture buttons. CONCLUSION: Use of a distal clavicle autograft with arthroscopic fixation using buttons is a novel and promising solution for the management of patients with shoulder instability and associated glenoid bone loss.
