Latarjet-Operation Schulter

The Latarjet procedure is an orthopedic procedure in the shoulder where a coracoid bone block is positioned flush with the anterior-inferior border of the glenoid (often with one or more screws). It can be performed as either an open or arthroscopic procedure. It is usually performed for antero-inferior shoulder instability.


Intra-operative complications include:

  • graft malpositioning
  • neurovascular injury
  • graft fracture

More intermediate-to-long term complications include:

  • non-union and screw breakage/migration
  • graft osteolysis

History and etymology
