Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Arthroscopic surgery has significantly advanced the field of orthopaedic surgery and is often regarded as one of the greatest improvements in orthopaedic care. Shoulder arthroscopy is a commonly performed and accepted procedure for a wide variety of pathologies. Surgeon experience, patient positioning, knowledge of surgical anatomy, proper portal placement, and proper use of instrumentation can improve technical success and minimize complication risks.

Indications for shoulder arthroscopy are widespread. Intra-articular indications include biceps tears, labral tears, subscapularis tears, chondral injuries, loose bodies, early degenerative changes, adhesive capsulitis, and shoulder instability. Indications for subacromial arthroscopy include rotator cuff tears, subacromial bursitis/impingement, and acromioclavicular osteoarthritis. Expanding arthroscopic indications include coracoclavicular reconstructions, Latarjet and bone block procedures, suprapectoralis biceps tenodesis, and suprascapular nerve decompressions.

The use of arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder has been on the rise and is projected to continue to increase in this decade. The future for this procedure is certainly bright, but the learning curve remains steep and therefore investment in time for adequate training is essential.

This special issue focused on “Shoulder Arthroscopy” invites articles from researchers throughout the world to submit all manuscript types, including reviews, original research and perspectives, and can be extended to arthroscopy of other joints. The research topic may be related to biomechanics, clinical outcome, complications, innovative surgical techniques, patient management strategies, and related researches.
