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
