Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of different surgical interventions for post-traumatic anterior shoulder instability in adults.

Our main comparisons will be:

  • anatomic (anatomical) versus non-anatomic (non-anatomical) methods

  • arthroscopic versus open surgical approaches

  • different suture techniques or fixation materials
