High rate of bone graft resorption found after Latarjet procedure for shoulder instability

Researchers of this study note that although the open Latarjet procedure provided significant improvement in clinical scores for patients with anterior shoulder instability and glenoid bone loss, 90.5% of patients showed graft resorption on CT at 1-year postoperatively.

Investigators studied 63 patients who underwent open Latarjet procedures performed during a 3-year period. At 1-year postoperatively, four independent surgeons evaluated the severity of graft resorption on CT scans using a four grade classification system.
