A group of 43 patients who underwent arthroscopic capsular shrinkage for MDI at the UCLA Medical Center between September 1996 and October 1998 was reviewed. Thirty-six patients, 15 males and 21 females, with an average age of 27 years, were available for follow-up at an average of 25 months. All patients were evaluated according to the modified ROWE score. 32 patients were rated as excellent/good and 25 of the 28 athletes were able to return to sports at an average time of 6 months. No technical complication was observed in this series. Three patients had adhesive capsulitis. Arthroscopic thermal capsular shrinkage for MDI is a minimal invasive technique which can provide shoulder stabilization with minimal morbidity and early function.

Abstract

A group of 43 patients who underwent arthroscopic capsular shrinkage for MDI at the UCLA Medical Center between September 1996 and October 1998 was reviewed. Thirty-six patients, 15 males and 21 females, with an average age of 27 years, were available for follow-up at an average of 25 months. All patients were evaluated according to the modified ROWE score. 32 patients were rated as excellent/good and 25 of the 28 athletes were able to return to sports at an average time of 6 months. No technical complication was observed in this series. Three patients had adhesive capsulitis. Arthroscopic thermal capsular shrinkage for MDI is a minimal invasive technique which can provide shoulder stabilization with minimal morbidity and early function.
