Abstract

The arthroscopic technique for the treatment of the glenoid and the proximal humerus fractures is a technically demanding surgical approach. Few very skilful surgeons with a lot of experience in the classic shoulder arthroscopic procedures (instability and rotator cuff repair) have been able to perform reduction and internal fixation in selected cases. Greater and lesser tuberosity fractures, Bony-Bankart and articular glenoid fractures have been successfully managed by mean arthroscopic technique. K-wires, cannulated screws and suture-anchors have been used to fix the bony-fragments. A new field of arthroscopic surgery is the treatment of acute and chronic acromion-clavicular dislocation and new different techniques have been described. Those arthroscopic treatments follow the trend to develop minimally invasive surgical techniques in the orthopaedic surgeons community
